Prairie/TRVE Sour Red Farmhouse Ale

I’ve been watching “Law and Order: SVU” religiously this season. Even though I miss the character of Stabler, I’ve been enjoying the season a lot. I never should have stopped watching the show. I think it’s going to end soon though, which would make me quite sad. Let’s talk about beer now.

ABV: 6.6%

Style: Flanders Red Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our beer can now be found in over twenty five states and five continents. Every day we strive to bring you favorites like Bomb!, Standard, and Prairie Vous Francais while also pushing ourselves to create new inspiring beers.”

Random: I need to pick up some more beers of this style. I’ve still only had a few.

The beer poured with a half a finger of cream-colored head. It dissipated slowly and left a small amount of lacing on the glass with a large crown. The body was a murky brown with a little bit of carbonation visible. The nose had some dark fruit, specifically currants, and a touch of sourness as well. There were red grapes as well. The taste was slightly tart, but not overly intense. It quickly went into oak and vanilla. It had a lot of yeast too. The body was light with high carbonation. The finish was quick with oak and red grapes. A bottle of this wasn’t cheap at $11.99, which broke down to $.71 per ounce. This beer was a standout, but it seems like every beer from the brewery is. If you can find this one, pick up a bottle or two.
