Thumbprint Flanders Sour Red Ale by New Glarus Brewing Company
Flanders Red Ale
6.50 % ABV

Flanders Sour Red Ale was inspired by the classic sour brews of Belgium. Our Flanders Sour Red was thoughtfully blended by Brewmaster Daniel Carey from his Cellar of young and 3 year old stock. In the traditional method, his expert blending was followed by a rest in the Wild Fruit Cellar. Tart stone fruit and sour apple notes balance delicately forward of the toasted almond body. Every drop was 100% naturally carbonated in the bottle you hold. Our spontaneously fermented Flanders Sour is an eminently vibrant sour experience.

Pours a dark reddish brown that is dark red when backlit. Creamy eggshell tan foam that has a nice meringue texture. Sticky collar of lacing, spotty arcs around the glass after a sip.

Aroma has the odd musty/minerally quality of a wet dishrag at first, then segues into dark malts, black cherry, barrel funk, and mild oak. There’s a world of improvement as it warms.

Cherry skins, soft oak, bracing lactic acidity. Pleasant dry oaky aftertaste as the momentary sourness fades. Zero acetic acid. Creamy texture, medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall it’s very good, approaching some of NG’s better Flemish-style hits like the original batches of Enigma (2006), Sour Brown Ale, and Wild Sour Ale. Definitely a repeat buy.
