LITTLE RED ONE
Barrel-aged for over a year with black currants from the Fraser Valley, this west coast lambic-style sour ale has notes of oak, black tea, and tobacco with a dry herbal character that brings to mind walking on herbal ground cover on a hot sunny day. Perfect for long term cellaring, this complex beer will soften and mellow with laying down for an extended period. Best enjoyed at cellar temperature.

Barrel-aged for over a year and is bottle conditioned. Black currants from the Fraser Valley lend berry character but with a dry herbal note (rather than sweetness) - kind of like walking on ground cover herbs on a very hot, dry summer day. There are aromas and flavours of oak, black tea, and tobacco. This complex beer should be drunk cool but well above fridge temperature. This is best accomplished by removing the bottle from the fridge an hour before opening or even better opening directly from cool storage in a cellar or basement. Little Red is perfect for long term cellaring and by laying down for an extended period it will soften and mellow.
