Flanders Red Ale Aged in French Oak

(1) 750mL Bottle, 6.1% ABV

LS4 is our take on a Flanders-Style Red, a sour ale with origins in West Flanders, Belgium. In fact, this beer is one of the first projects to come out of our new oak foeders, acquired in November 2018. For its first six months, LS4 fermented in a foeder alongside a Belgian yeast blend containing Saccharomyces, Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus cultures. Next, the ale was transferred to French oak barrels for an additional three months, developing tannic wood character and a rich, vinous complexity. Red malts contribute a ruby hue to the final brew, which balances prominent dark fruit aromas with a red wine character evocative of plum, beetroot, and raspberry. LS4 finishes semi-dry, with a snappy lactic tang that satisfies and refreshes the palate – a fantastic combination for a wide variety of food pairings. Drink fresh or cellar.
