Also called “Monk’s Café Flemish Sour Red Ale”

We blend young and old beers to make this mildy tart sour ale. Light bodied with a lactic/sour nose and a bit of sweet and sour in the finish. Very refreshing!

I had this at Global Brew. Called "Monks Cafe". Pours reddish-brown with a tan head. Taste sour, tart, cherry. I thought this was very good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Absolutely delicious sour ale. Strong sour flavor. Dark color and light foamy head. Very balanced and tasty.
