Brewed by:
The Lost Abbey
California, United States

Style: Flanders Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Rotating

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.

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.

Bottle from Lost Abbey...375ml into New Glarus flute

Beautful deep amber/brown color...large head.

Wow, love the cherry taste that consumes my taste buds. Awesome oak flavor, perfect aftertaste that lingers, with the perfect amount of carbonation.

Smell is definitely cherry and oak...

Wish I had more of these!

Best Flanders red I've ever had.
