he Flanders Red Ale is a mixed fermentation beer that starts off like a normal brown beer which is then transferred to wooden barrels; in this case for 24 months.  It is in the barrels that the beer picks up the sour flavour.

At first there is a welcome sweetness from the malts that presents more like dark fruits.  But it doesn’t take long for the balsamic vinegar acidity to grip the sides of your tongue.  There is that lovely balance of sweet and sour that vie for supremacy, but the acidity wins out in the long aftertaste.
