COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This traditional Flanders-style sour red ale was aged for 2.5 years in red wine barrels. It is named in honor of a very energetic cardinal who used to fly around the outside of the brewery during the first half of 2011 when this beer was originally brewed.

Aroma is mild lactic acid tones, balsamic, wood, hints of caramel and mild toffee. Taste is sour lactic tones, wood, mild balsamic, red berries and hints of grass. Medium body and carbonation.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2014
hazy chestnut, large bubbled white ring with lightly oily cap. Earthy, rindy nose, heavy brown sugar reminiscent of a soft sour brown with too much yeast. More brown sugar at front palate, slightest acetic berries add brightness, metallic lime juice across mid before foamy earth and dates in the sour brown finish. Soft profile lets errors survive but decently balanced.
