Flanders Red Ale |  6.50% ABV

Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
Perhaps no country embraces the use of fruit in beers more so than Belgium. Numerous traditional as well as regional specialty ales are infused with every sort of fruit imaginable. In this way, the flavor of the fruit becomes especially prominent.

Red Poppy Ale is a veritable celebration of Sour Cherries in an explosion of aromas and tastes. Brewed from a brown ale base and aged in our oak barrels for over 6 months, this beer is not for the faint of heart.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A-Rich brown with a slight red hue. Good head retention with creamy foam.
S- Definite funk scent, which delivers what it promises. Oak-y, no hint of cherry
T- Delicious smooth sour flavor. Not incredibly pungent, more flavor after you swallow. No cherry flavor to be found, which I was happy with. Very true to style. No sour bite at the end.
M- Perfect level of carbonation with the flavor. Allows the flavors to dance on your tongue after swallowing and coats your tongue perfectly.
O- Wonderful flavors and something I would enjoy drinking except for the price
