750ml C&C bottle.

Vintage 2013.

Thanks for the share Nate!

Appearance: deep red bodied beer with 2 fingers of dirty white head. Head quickly drops down to a ring around the glass.

Smell: Tons of cherries. Lots of oak tannins. Smells like this is a pretty sour beer. Very inviting aroma.

Taste: Lots of sour and tart cherries. Hint of sweetness from malt. Vanilla and tannins. Moderate acetic sourness that is a 7.5 out of 10; for my tastes it is just the right amount of sourness without overdoing it. Long, lingering acidic and tannic finish to this beer which is just awesome.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation levels. This is masterfully carbonated; it has ample carbonation and it is not aggressive. A little better than a semi dry finish.

Overall: By far the best of "the Woods" series by Cisco and probably the best beer that I have had from Cisco. I am reviewing this beer as a flanders red because this is what the bottle specifically states, so this is not a wild ale. It is a two year old Nantucket Flemish-style red aged on whole sour cherries for 10 months in oak wine barrels according to the label. This one of the top 3 flanders red 's out there as far as I am concerned.

Huge oak on the smell with some cherry and tartness as well. The taste follows but brings out more of the cherries. It's not so much tart as it is sour. If that makes any sense. Very good kriek though and more cherry flavor comes out as it warmed. A very solid beer from cisco.
