A Note on This Beer
You want the best of the best, right?
Then you might want to grab some Red Poppy Ale right now, because this is one of the best Flanders Red Ales money can buy:
- It’s the #9 Flanders Red in the World on BeerAdvocate!
- It’s one of The Beer Connoisseur’s Top 38 Sour Beers ever!
- It boasts a slew of national awards, including Gold & Best of Show at the Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beer!
To make Red Poppy, The Lost Abbey takes their GABF Gold medal-winning chocolatey Brown Ale base and blends it with a portion of their Lager for a clean finish. Then, they add real poppy seeds and sour cherries before aging it all in French oak for over a year!
It’s a top-shelf, sweet ‘n sour treat that will grace your palate with oaky, Pinot Noir-like elegance. Silky nuances of caramel and roasted nuts weave into every sip, balancing out the pleasant mouth-puckering tartness of those juicy, sour cherries.
A brew as acclaimed and coveted as Red Poppy deserves its place on a candlelit dinner table, ready to top off any special occasion — or in your cellar, where its intricate flavors will continue to develop until the occasion arises.
