A Flemish Style Vermont Sour Red Ale fermented with brettanomyces yeast providing slight tartness with barnyard aromas and flavors. This recipe was the result of the collaborative efforts of VPB brewers both past and present in honor of their mentor and Master Brewer, Greg Noonan. The name (Toolah - Leez) comes from county Cork in Ireland where the Noonan clan originated. 6.1% ABV. 6 SRM. Hits the style.

Draft. Pours a light orange color with a small white head. Nose is light barnyard with a light straw note. Palate is light and airy with a nice clean finish. Flavors of barnyard funk, with a nice light grassy hop note and some straw. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cfrancis (2786) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
Best one of the flight. Pours clear gold with little or no carbonation. Aroma is sweet brett and light fruity tart. Taste is sweet tartness with dry finish and small funk. I wouldn’t really call it a flemish as it seems more are a brett sour.

Draft @ the pub. Dim lighting, looks like a red type color, thin ring of head. Aroma of tart cherries, yeast and vinegar. Yep... Tastes just like the aroma. And really too much vinegar. Acidic and harsh puckering in the back of the of the taste buds. Huge amount of tart cherries with just a tad bit much vinegar. Sour head should like the pucker. Not really my bag... I keep trying the sours and my option is the same. Meh

Draught at the brewery, January 2014 and a growler drunk 3/6/14
Very nice, well-carbonated pour shows a amber-auburn body with plentiful beige head and lots of carbonation.
Extreme acetic acid in the nose with vanilla and light alcohol notes. Buttercream is very light in the background and the vinousness continues to build up.
It’s funny, when I first had this, the first couple sips are pure bliss. Sour, acetic, flemish-like flavors are beautifully stretched over the palate, but as it warms and grows on the palate, vinegar and balsam build up and plentiful diacetyl makes itself known. If they could just keep the acetic sourness and pleasant maltiness, and the breadiness and diacetyl didnt bulid up, this would be world class. As is, it’s still very drinkable and enjoyable.

[5287-20130428] Tap. Light fruit cheese yeast aroma. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Soured cherry cheese yeast flavour has a lingering cheesecake quality. Really interesting, nice balance. (7/3/7/3/13) 3.3

tap. Pours hazy amber with a small off-white creamy head and nice lacing. Aroma is brett, funky, tart cherry, fruity. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet, lightly tart, light acetone and a bit of bandaid coming through as well. Light body.

jercraigs (9041) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2013
2013-04-28. Hazy bright golden orange body with small off white head. Aroma is funky, bit musty and bretty. Lactic touches. Flavour is similar, moderate sourness, moderate bretty musty character. Whispers of green apple and fruit. Sweet lemon. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Decent straightforward sour. Flemish red seems like an odd deScriptor, but it was tasty. On tap at the brewpub
