Denne belgiskinspirerte red alen ble brygget i samarbeid med Redchurch Brewery, et lite håndverksbryggeri i London. Det ble gjæret med trappistgjær for å få balanse og kompleksitet. Ølet er komplekst, men subtilt med smak av røde frukter og krydder kombinert med unike Brettanomyces og sherryeikefat. Brygget forsiktig og med lidenskap.
