COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our organic red ale is brewed in traditional West Flanders style. A combination of light, crystal, and dark barley malt, wheat, and oats are brewed with local whole-cone hops and a variety of select yeast and lactic bacteria. We age our red ale in oak barrels for a period of time to develop complex richness, soft tannins, and fruity tart character. The aged beer is then blended with young beer to create the desired balance of malt sweetness with a dry finish.

reebtogi (5940) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 2, 2017
750ml capped bottle pours amber in color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark berries with red wine grapes and malts with hints of yeast. Taste is a lemon tartness with a dark fruity and malty sweetness with an earthy bitterness and a dry red wine and yeasty finish. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, a well crafted brew for the style, not too tart, which I prefer and nicely balanced. Recommended.

Heavy dusty aroma. Sweetish toffee, some sourness. Taste is bland and sweet, a bit sour. Watery palate. A bit of bile in the acidic finish. Harsh. This one slap bang in the middle of the tragic lets play sour with "craft" recipes trend.
