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.

Absolutely delicious. It's incredibly sour when first sipped, but has a warmer and sweeter aftertaste. Very pleasant to drink. It's foggy and dark red, almost resembling pomegranate juice in the glass. It doesn't look very carbonated, but was surprisingly bubbly.

Serving type: on-tap
