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.

Bottle-Thanks to andrewje41 for the bottle! Pours dark red slightly hazy hue with a nice foamy pinkish off-white head and some sparse lacing. Very active carbonation as to be expected from this style of beer. Nose is funky, oaky, slight tartness, very slight berry element here. Has some of that "belgian red" thing going on however, not quite as sweet or strong. Flavors are woody, tart, buggy, lots of woody notes. Finish is woody with some very mild tartness. Very solid and i really like this beer however, i can see where the ratings would say its not very complex or interesting. For what it is, its a very refrshing beer for this style.
