Beer added by: Brad007 on 04-20-2010

A Flemish Style Vermont Sour Red Ale fermented with brettanomyces yeast providing slight tartness with barnyard aromas and flavors. This recipe was the result of the collaborative efforts of VPB brewers both past and present in honor of their mentor and Master Brewer, Greg Noonan. The name (Toolah - Leez) comes from county Cork in Ireland where the Noonan clan originated. 6.1% ABV. Hits the style.

Served in an 8 ounce handled glass stein. Served medium red, almost no head.
Smells a bit funky, not much if any brett in the nose.
Tastes almost of saison yeast as opposed to brett. Decent flavor but not what I was expecting. Not a lot of fruit present here either.
Mouthfeel was good, slightly tart as desired.
Overall, wish there was a lot more brett in this beer, but still enjoyable.

cool but inconsistent beer, different every time i try it, and this latest batch may have been the least impressive of the lot. its murky amber in color, almost flat from the tap, with a foot smelling funk that shows weird sour mashing, a little off, and an overall weirdness to it. definitely a wild ale, but just so much funk, gym socky and sweaty and unsettling a little in the stomach. i remember it differently though, as an excellent flanders red, vinegary and fuller bodied with a lot of rich caramel grain character. it has always been like that, but the funk seems way higher than the lacto part now, and like some of those spontaneous overpriced italian wilds, this one is unfamiliar in a way im not sure i like. backyard bucket type beer, maybe batch variance is intentional, but i liked previous editions far more than this latest brew.

Dark gold color with a thin and quick to vanish head. I like my Flemish Reds more red. Smells more like strawberries rather than cherries. There's a nice wet straw rustic tone that carries from the aroma into the flavor. Flavor is a again more strawberries than cherry. Not nearly tart enough.
