FLEMISH FARMHOUSE RED
This traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale is brewed using a blend of yeasts including Brettanomyces or “Brett” to give it a unique aroma and flavour reminiscent of a bygone era. With notes of black cherry and spice, the lightly fruity and refreshing tartness blends with the caramel malt flavours and funky woodiness of French oak contact to make this a real Old World Classic.
