Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerBeing on 09-07-2007

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.

The Golden Poppy is the state flower of California and the Red Poppy is found in Flanders Fields where our inspiration for this beer comes from.

2014 bottle, opened October 2014

A - Wow, what a beautiful looking beer. Deep, bright cranberry ice tea body. Creamy yellowed-paper head pours 2 fingers high, with great retention and lace for the style.

S - Fantastic. Bold green apple, caramel, bread crust, peaches, wild flowers, and lemon.

T - Tingly sour with bright lemon, brown sugar, tart apple cider, pumpernickel bread, green grapes, sharp black cherries, and soft white oak.

M - Outstanding carbonation with a crisp, medium frame.

O - A stellar example of one of my favorite styles.
