Flora - CherryFlora - Cherry
Notes: Flora is the wine barrel aged version of Florence (1915-1967), our grandfather's sister as well as the name of our wheat farmhouse ale. Only a few barrels were selected and then further aged on a blend of fresh, hand picked Montmorency cherries. The result is a complex, elegant expression of the annual harvest.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Light reddish body. Clear. Almost no head. Cherry aroma is light. White wine. Really nice. Tart cherry flavor, but still pretty light on cherry. White wine and a bit of funk. Very light wheat. Has the aftertaste of a cherry Jolly Rancher. Light body with medium low carbonation. Anther great treatment of Flora.

Big nose of juicy cherries and nice (cinnamon) pit notes. Taste is similar but not quiiiite as impressive as the nose. Still, world class stuff. Kevin and Tom, bros.

Pale pink hues with a white head that leaves good lacing.

Slightly tart cherry aroma and flavor. Mild funk. A bit muted, and not quite as good as the base, but still very good.

Delicate, smooth body. Light carbonation.

Another slight let down considering how good the base is. Still a very good beer.
