COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Anchoress is our Flanders-Style Red Ale aged in oak barrels on cherries. Anchoress was fermented and aged entirely in red wine barrels from a small producer in Woodinville, WA. After a year in oak, half of the batch was aged on Montmorency cherries for 3 months, and then blended back into the original batch before bottling.

Tasting at SF, Vancouver
Cloudy red-amber color. Deep aroma of cherry kernels with a vinous layer. Bold mouthfeel, puckery sourness, but backed by large amount of fruit, lingering fruitiness, balsamic vinegar.
Excellent Sour.

750ml bottle @ the office. Pours a cloudy light brown colour with a small beige head. Nose is upfront balsamic, but as your sniff more it changes to a white vinegar note. Flavour is tart and tangy sour cherries with a dominant balsamic character. Tasty and complex sour.

Ferris (16498) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2017
Bottle - Soured plum and raisin with brown sugar. Cloudy gold with a small beige head. Soured plums, brown sugar and acidic notes. Maybe a bit too sour and one sided.

mcberko (18950) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2017
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy dark orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is loaded with tart and sweet cherries, light oak, and some red wine barrels. Flavour is loaded with tart and sweet complex cherries, with light oak, gentle acidity and red wine barrel. The cherries are really wonderfully incorporated in here. Complex and beautifully balanced. Excellent.

Oakes (18794) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2017
Cloudy and reddish-brown. Not much head. On the nose, lots of cherries and that seems to lend an almost balsamic note. There's cherry, tartness, oak...not bad. Quite complex. Lots of fun.

Draft pour at Holy Mountain. A reddish orange pour. Both sweet and sour cherry aroma going on. A bit like cherry pie. Aromatic, and very nice. A good balance of malt and sour cherry. The grains actually outlast the cherry impressions. A nice oak like, dry finish. Very pleasant sour.

markducommun (1224) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2017
Dark cloudy red brown. Light tan head. Vinous, vinegary. Cherries, cinnamon. Not a little bit of oak. Very tart, fairly sweet. Long finish. Medium body, oily. Surprisingly hot, alcohol. Good.

luttonm (6749) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2017
HM, Seattle. Soft ring of offwhite foam. Hazy, warm red with brown tint. Spiced cherry fruity aroma. Full sip with a quick sour bite. Lots of cherry pit surrounding this. Cleans up, with a coating spicy sour edge. Quite peppery and spiced. Plenty of oak, with overtones of vanilla bean. A touch of acetone. Fairly creamy, earthy yeast. Quite nice, grew less interesting by the end of the glass.
