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.

Leighton (11315) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Manny G. Pours lightly hazy amber with a creamy, mellow tan head. The nose holds moderate wet wood, old dried berries, earth and leather. Light sweet flavor with some assertive acidity, tart old berries, more well-worn leather. Light to medium bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish with good sour, leathery fruits, berried. Good stuff.
