Two year old Nantucket Flemish-style red aged on whole sour cherries for 10 months. This is similar to sipping the idea of what a "cherry" is... UNREAL.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2012 750 ml bottle to oversized snifter (thanks ernesto and reynolds). Looks okay; a hazy amber with next to no carbonation. Smells solid; sweet, sour, and notes of malt and burnt caramel, vinegar, and butterscotch. Tastes like some diacetyl. Infected?

Bottle. Pours a nice red with no head and very little carbonation. Tart cherry nose with some barnyard notes. Med body with more sour cherries, strong spice notes and lingering funk. Sweet and sour finish with more spices. Feels hot. A different sour from most.

750 mL bottle from Grape & Gourmet. The pour is reddish brown with a few bubbles but no head. Aroma of apple cider vinegar and very tart cherries. No surprises in the flavor; apple cider vinegar, tart cherry, and a plentiful amount of oak. There is no doubt this is a sour ale but the flavors are well integrated and not too overwhelming. A nicely done sour.

The aroma is tart cherry, vanilla, wood, funk. The appearance is a brown/red translucent, off white head. The flavor is tart cherry, vanilla, funk, vinegar. The finish is cherries, both tart and sweet. Medium in body, actually slightly thick. Quite good.

Sour cherry aroma. Cloudy copper, thin yellow head. Tart cherry flavor, some twigs. Straight forward and simple but quite well made. Surprisingly good.

tia (1476) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle @ 18th RG. Pretty auburn, not much head. Nice sour smell, plus fruit almost like a vinaigrette but not as harsh. Nice sour, strong tart flavor.

Butters (4006) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Sampled at the at 18th Richmond gathering. Clear reddish brown pour and ring of white head. Almost totally flat. Smells delicious and a little vinegar. Flavor is slightly acidic and good dark cherry. Just need some carbonation to take this thing to the next level.

hopscotch (10427) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle… Mostly clear burnt caramel ale with no head. The aroma is a fruity swirl of dark cherries, oak, cherry skins, vanilla and caramel. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and flat-as-a-pancake carbonation. The flavor is very tart – bordering on sour – fruity and a touch funky. Finishes tart and then falls sort of flat and lifeless. Very, very nice, but this one could have used some tingle to it. Bottle courtesy of ksurkin!

750 c&c from Half Time. Pours clear ruddy brown with a few white bubbles. Aromas of sour cherry and light oak. Near med body. Flavor is sour cooking cherry with a fair amount of oak. Smooth, mellow, cherry and sour. Finishes sour and astringent. Excellent.
