To make Red Poppy, The Lost Abbey takes their GABF Gold-winning chocolatey Brown Ale base and blends it with a portion of their Lager beer for a cleaner finish. Then, they add real poppy seeds and sour cherries before aging it all in French oak for over a year!
It’s a top-shelf, sweet ‘n sour treat that will grace your palate with oaky, Pinot Noir-like elegance. Silky nuances of caramel and baked nuts weave into every sip from the poppies, offering a pleasant respite from the mouth-puckering acidity of those juicy, sour cherries.
A brew as acclaimed and coveted as Red Poppy deserves its place on a candlelit dinner table, ready to top off any special occasion — or in your cellar, where its intricate flavors will continue to develop until the occasion arises.
