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.

kaserov (1166) - Oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 7, 2018
Color marrón oscuro, rojizo si le da la luz, turbio y con capa de espuma marrón claro de tres dedos de grosor y buena retención. Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa. Aroma a ácido acético, bastante vinagre, sulfuro, madera, vagamente frutal. Sabor más controlado, con acidez bien calibrada. Vinagre suave, madera, caramelo suave. Aunque sigue sin estar clara la fruta en ningún sentido. Si la descripción no dijera que está infusionada con cerezas ni lo sabría, sinceramente. De todas formas, verdaderamente rica y bien balanceada, cosa que no se encuentra siempre en este tipo de cervezas.

Brun farge med noe hvitt skum. Lukter sure bær og noe røyk. Syrlig og bær i smak. Smaken sitter i lenge.

Tap at San Diego taproom. 5oz sampler. Thick murky red brown burgundy body. Massive foamy off-white head. Juicy Brett, cherry, mild oak. Not sure what good the poppy seeds do, but they seem to flesh it out. Good.

Learninbeer (689) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - DEC 22, 2017
The aroma is Belgium yeast and cherries. Pours a dark amber brown with light tan head mostly lasting and excellent lacing. The taste is a medium sweet with a light sour. The body is medium/light, the texture/carbonation a thin creamy fizziness. A very good beer.

Mariox (443) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 25, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 W aromacie winne nuty, wiśnie, lekkie stajenne nuty, dzikość, kwaśność. W smaku kwaśne z lekką kontrą słodyczy. Na finiszu troche cierpkie. Wysycenie średnie, treściwe, pijalne. Całkiem dobry sour red ale.

Naprawdę dobry sour, choć do Cuvee de Tomme się nie umywa. Ładnie czuć owoce, chyba wiśnie, w aromacie. Do tego siano i trochę innych owoców. No i jest zawsze ta "ścierka". MIedziane, mętne piwo, a kwaśne, jeśli chodzi o smak, choć zawiera lekką nutę slodyczy. W smaku czuć też te wiśnie. Fajnie się pije.

rosskyle (808) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2017
