COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Also called “Monk’s Café Flemish Sour Red Ale”

We blend young and old beers to make this mildy tart sour ale. Light bodied with a lactic/sour nose and a bit of sweet and sour in the finish. Very refreshing!

Buukwurm (42) - California, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Smells of tart apple. Pours a deep, almost black, brown. Taste is sour with a hint of sweetness followed by anunpleasantly bitter finish. In taste and aroma this ale lacks in the complexities found in other sour ales. The body is light. The carbonation is average.
