Nancy is a tart ale fermented with fresh, Maine cherries and Brettanomyces in 100% stainless, for just shy of a year. Copper in color, Nancy has an aroma of cherries, bread crust, and a touch of cinnamon. It features a medley of tart cherry, citrus, and pie spice notes. The finish is dry with a lingering tartness.

Nice pop upon uncorking, 1/4" white head goes for a short ride before settling in as a ring and islands. Peach flesh colored ale, opaque with visible carbonation streaming up and maintaining a fine bead on the ring of foam.
Instant funky brett in the nostrils followed quickly by a tart cherry aroma. Classic aromas of mild horse blanket and a touch of the medicine cabinet.
Whoa, TART...sour explosion on the palate! Cherries, tart and sour cherries. Underlying spiciness, like a spice rack type - the slightest hint of cinnamon. Perfume-y and floral. Lemon, cranberry suggestions...tart/bitter skins.
Medium body and medium-high carbonation. Clean finish - the tartness somehow lingers without coating the tongue...clean is the best description but definitely not quick.
Outstanding. There's so much going on here between smells, tastes, and feels -- complex and a great experience.
