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!

Had this on tap last time at Monk's. Very lovely. A bit more sour than Rodenbach Red. This style is amazing.

Oak and cherry aroma. Sour taste with yoghurt, oak, cherry and apple. A bit thin, but very refreshing.

Ever put your mouth in a lemon? This beer is awfull sour. Pure ugly crap. The aroma is not good indeed, but it’s the best feature of this beer after appearance, which is beautifull darkred.

caesar (5045) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2002
Iron aroma indeed, not real good. Copper color. Sour cherry taste. It’s actually a Flanders Red Ale i guess, but this one is not pretty good.

Dark redbrown hue. The nose is winey and quite sour. Makes it water in your mouth. It tastes sour like cheeseballs with some biscuity and youghurt like flavors. I like it a lot

Burgundy. Sourish, full bodied, complex and balsamic. An irresistable Flanders style red ale.
