Notes: Red ale aged in oak barrels with wild yeast and souring bacteria. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and bottle-conditioned. This beer is a tribute to our good friend Russ Beattie. Thanks, Russ. Thuss.

L: Ruby red with a brown hue from afar. A nice ring of head that stays with the beer until finish.
S: Absolutely remarkable. Oak with sweet vanilla and funky notes
T: The sherry barrel makes this Flemish Style Red the most outstanding beer of it's style I have had. It is truly a work of art. Going from a wine-like taste to a pure Flemish red. With a nice sour pucker reminiscent of sour apple and lacto.
F: The general feel is light, but the aftertaste is the perfect balance of a wine barrel and a Flemish Red Sour
O: Very impressive, I would seek this out whenever it is available.
