Strubbe's Grand Cru Flemish Red Ale

July 2, 2013

Overall Grade:B
Taste:B
Drinkability:B+
Aroma:A-

Yeasty Flemish Red Ale with heavy notes of brettanomyces and a strong red wine aroma.

It is bright and carbonated, and the aroma and initial taste is the best part.

The finish is where it gets funky, leaving a bready, bretty taste that hints at a warm, sweaty barn.

Mildly sour and tart, with a heavy dryness that lingers on the palate.

If it had a better aftertaste, I would have given this beer a better grade.
