BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Lost Abbey
California, United States

Style: Flanders Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

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.

Appearance - Very carbonated with a huge head. Dark purplish color that is quite impressive.

Smell - At first I didn't get much, but then the raspberries came out from behind the intense tartness.

Taste - sweet fruit right away followed by a puckering tartness

Mouthfeel - even with all the carbonation and tartness this beer is very impressive

Overall - this beer is phenomenal! for almost a session beer this one was great. glad I finally found one on the shelves
