The Lost Abbey - Red Poppy
« on: March 02, 2021, 03:06:32 AM »
Red Poppy was one of the beers that really turned me on to sours. Over the years I've noticed it drift to a more strong acetic bite, which I'm not a huge fan of. I took a year or two off, and I'm kicking into a new bottle I just picked up.

I am really enjoying this recent release. The acetic character has really been tamed compared to a few years back. The balance is there and that really let's the complexity shine. The overall tartness is just a bit lower than usual, but I'll take it. I'm looking forward to including this in my new house sour culture.

I'm with you.  I stopped buying it a number of years back because I didn't like it anymore.  If I come across one I'll pick it up and give it another try.
