The Lost Abbey Red Poppy Ale

“Light lactic sourness, moderate acidity, and a light floral character. Fruity notes of fig and cherry and some oak. Herbal notes reminiscent of pumpkin pie spices. Light body with a moderate carbonation that supports the sour notes. High sourness with a slight chocolate (?) note that continues slightly into the linger. Moderately high acid sharpens the whole thing. Subtle sweetness when you look for it.”
