COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our organic red ale is brewed in traditional West Flanders style. A combination of light, crystal, and dark barley malt, wheat, and oats are brewed with local whole-cone hops and a variety of select yeast and lactic bacteria. We age our red ale in oak barrels for a period of time to develop complex richness, soft tannins, and fruity tart character. The aged beer is then blended with young beer to create the desired balance of malt sweetness with a dry finish.

Vells (1549) - Rîga, Latvija, LATVIA - AUG 25, 2016
Quite strong malty background, including toasted malts, fruity berry-like aroma outshines though, some drying wood notes. Light sweetness with moderate to light tartness, feels chewy. Very nice balance, love it

fiulijn (18780) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2016
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Opaque amber color. Some acetic aroma and flavor; the flavor is balanced by some sweetness, it has enough fruity touch. But the final is quite weak.
A bit messy, I don’t see the target, but it’s not a bad beer.

italianjohn (2877) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Hazy reddish pour with a thin white head .... Aroma of Brett, tart cherry, berries, light acid and light oak .... Taste is of dry oak, sour and tart cherry, berries, light acetone and caramel malts ... Tastes like a very young Flanders but has fresh flavors .... Finish is of dry oak and tart fruits .... Real simple and easy drinking brew fresh and tasty

tiong (6390) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 24, 2016
Draught @ Bailey’s Taproom, Portland, OR. Pours dark reddish with a smooth head. Aroma of tart berries, vinous notes, farmyard and yeast. Taste is funky, slightly tart and woody with some ripe apples, wood and oak. Finish is yeasty, woody and ripe with loads of tartish apples. Not very aggressive, feels almost like a hard cider.
