COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

bottle, from Luke’s Liquors, 10/04/11. Good aroma, sour. Tart. Fruity. Cherry, grape, oak. Clean brownish orange color, small head, no lace 1st pour, better head, that faded quick, still no lace 2 pour. Sour flavor. Light body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, tart finish. Good brew, pretty tasty. just a tad short of being great. still good to sniff and taste....bit pricey, like 23 bucks, for the bottle, but that’s the path I’ve chosen....

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Medium red-brown body, pinkish-white one cm head. Quickly receded, spotty lacing. S: Tart cherries, earthy-oak, some vinous notes. T: Like the nose, there is a bit of oak and vinous notes, but the cherries have taken a serious step back. Tartness is still there, but the depth of flavor is muted. M: A bit thin and under-carbonated. Not particularly enjoyable. O: While the nose and taste were respectable the weak body made drinking this somewhat of a chore.

davey101 (684) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 10, 2011
750ml bottle into a tulip glass. Allowed to warm up a bit. A - Dark brown/red body with a pinkish/brown head. Looks a lot like a Flanders red. S - Cherries, oak, vanilla, and lactic acid. Fairly funky and sour aroma. T - Sour cherries followed by vanilla rich oak. Tart and slightly mouth puckering. Really sweet and smooth. Carbonation is pretty low but it works for the style. O - Another good beer from the woods series. It is very refreshing and I love the sweet cherry pie and rich oak flavors. A good interpretation of the flanders/oude bruin style.

Atheist_Peace (944) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 23, 2011
750ml bottle. Clear bright red with brownish tinges and a slightly pink average head. Lots of oak and sour cherry on the nose. There’s a faint maltiness there and some light funk. Very sour on the palate with flavours of sour cherry, oak and a light funk. Long, sour finish that leaves you salivating like Pavlov’s dog.

Bottle at stone sour ale fest. Dark red pour, with an off-white head. Lots of cherries in this.. sweet cherry pie, a bit of vinegar, tart cherry, oak and more oak, and lacto. A nice sour, not among the best, but still very good.

crazyvin (1933) - New York, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Poured a clear mahogany color that grew cloudy as i poured more from the bottle. Head was tan with a slight red twinge to it. Retention was light. Aroma was of cherries, wild yeast and a subtly spiciness to it. Flavor was initially tart with cherries then the wild yeast came through finishing with a slight vanilla flavor. Carbonation was appropriate.

Fantastic wild ale from Cisco. Pours a nice ruby red with white head. Nose of rich cherries and vanilla. Taste is sour funked cherries with nice vanilla sweetness. Very smooth and tasty for any sour fan. Highly recommend this and I need to try the whole series.
