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.

Pours an opaque brown with a quite tan head that laces forever and never leaves. Aroma is a bit acetic backed by oak, cherries and a hint of bakers chocolate. Flavor is same but less tangy and the bakers chocolate really come through int he aftertaste with welcomed force and unexpected sweetness. Palate is nice clearing and not too gum annihilating. A really really great beer, complex and drinkable.

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.

backlog z PAKK 2017. Dzikie, dużo taniny z beczki, kwaśne wiśnie, super się komponuje z wędzonym serem i litewską słoniną.

375 mL bottle from Tasty Beverage Co., Raleigh, NC. Rusty brownish-orange pour with a quick off-white head. Aroma of apple cider vinegar, oak, and cherries. Taste is tart, as expected, with notes of lemon, cherry, and currant but with a noticeable element of oak that provides balance and Earthiness. Sour lingers somewhat but less so than other sours I have tried. A nicely done sour.

Dość kwaśne i octowe, ale mimo wszystko w łagodny sposób. Owocowy aromat nadaje delikatności. Wyraziste i przyjemne.

A vinegarish beer, reminds me of Rodenbach Vintage which is a bit more fruity, more oaky (i mean wooden) but less acidic and vinegarish. Cherries add some tartness.

W aromacie główną rolę gra wiśnia. W smaku kwaśna wiśnia z lekką kontrą słodyczy, Dość octowo miodowy aromat. Przyjemne, pijalne.

KraftowyJakup (471) - POLAND - SEP 27, 2017
Pachnie intensywnie wiśnią, jest tu jeszcze lekka miodowo-octowa, słodka nuta, bardzo przyjemnie. W smaku lekko kwaśne z zaznaczoną słodyczą i jakimś dziwnym, ale przyjemnym posmakiem (może to ten mak, w ciemno bym nie zgadł) i lekką nutą drewna dębowego na finiszu.
