COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Perhaps no country embraces the use of fruit in beers more so than Belgium. Numerous traditional as well as regional specialty ales are infused with every sort of fruit imaginable. In this way, the flavor of the fruit becomes especially prominent. Red Poppy Ale is a veritable celebration of Sour Cherries in an explosion of aromas and tastes. Brewed from a brown ale base and aged in our oak barrels for over 6 months, this beer is not for the faint of heart. The Golden Poppy is the state flower of California and the Red Poppy is found in Flanders Fields where our inspiration for this beer comes from.

Kiezmar (2470) - Krakow, POLAND - JUL 21, 2020
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2020 W aromacie dużo ciemnych owoców, wiśni i lekki ocet. Fajna waniliowa słodka kontra. W smaku mocno drewniane, mocno taninowe. Pestka, lekki funk, troszkę czerwonowinne. Gładkie, zbalansowane, no mimo octu pyszka.

fiery1 (3597) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2020
UPDATED: APR 8, 2020 375ml bottle @ home. 2015 Vintage, cellared for 4 years. Pours a hazy rusty reddish brown colour with a small beige head. Nose is sour cherries, oak, and gentle toasted malt. Flavour is upfront semi-sweet quickly lending way to a more so sour cherry character, then the sour brown ale comes to light with an oak influence. Light bodied, decent carbonation, and a mild sweetness with a moderate sourness. Interesting and decent.

frozencemetery (26) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 5, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2020 Cocoa-colored with tan head that doesn't stick around. Carbonation produces foamy head which lingers. Vinous, lactic aroma. Extremely sour to the point it's difficult to taste anything. Very dry finish with vinous aftertaste. Feel like I need to drink something between sips to rehydrate my mouth. I want to like this given the other positive reviews, but I'm just not seeing it. Overall: too sour, too little going on, and I'm not convinced the cherries or poppies are doing anything.

puren (2084) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JAN 29, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2020 Toń klarowna, mahoniowa. Piana średnia. Aromat mocno kwaśnych ogórków kiszonych, funky, drewna, wina. Ciało niskie, średnio nasycone. Lekko ściąga, lekko wykleja podniebienie. W smaku kwaśno na potęgę - sok z kiszonych, octu winnego, a także gorzkawo drewnem, taninami. Fajne kwaśne i cierpkie piwko.

Concealer (1449) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2019 Bottle. This is the 6.5% version...i don't know what that matters. Cloudy reddish dark brown with a small, fizzy tan head that lasts mostly and laces some. Aromas of sour cherries, wood, funk, light caramel, leather, and tobacco. Flavor is the same with big sour cherries flavor upfront with some wood, funk, and tobacco on the back end. Finishes with a vinegar note. Light plus bodied, moderately acidic with a bone dry finish. Lingering sour cherry and slight vinegar.

GTAEgeek (4052) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2019 On tap at Trail's End. Pours a clear, dark red color, with a small, dense, tan head. The aroma is sweet cherries, brown sugar, lime zest, and cinnamon. Lovely, tart flavor, and just a little sweet. Medium body, with a crisp, lively, and clean palate. Just excellent!

3.8
VDuquerroux (3502) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - JUL 6, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2019 Saturday, July 6, 2019. Bottle, 12.7 fl.oz. 6.5%. Purchase ('Craft Beer Shop', Angers (49), FR). Home. A sparkling dark brown beer witha medium beige foamy head ; medium retention ; poor lacing ; great label ; nice bottle. Cherry++, nice fruity cherry juicy character such in jar of cherries, vinegar woody notes, herbal/floral minimal notes (or just in my head...). Light to medium round sweet, medium acid/sour dry fresh. Light to medium body, light to medium oily texture, soft gaseous, round fruity acid refreshing finish. Overall, very good ! Really nice indeed, not as gourmet as a Rodenbach Alexander for example ; nevertheless, tasting this beer, I would have loved a more 'floral' bruin flanders with a good fruity/floral character ; maybe less body with a light underlying bitterness.
