Belgian-Style Flanders Beer

Belgian-Style Flanders is a type of beer that originates from the Flanders region of Belgium. The beer is typically brewed with Belgian ale yeast, and it has a distinctive reddish colour.

Belgian-Style Flanders Beer is known for its sour taste, which is caused by the presence of lactic acid bacteria. The beer is also often bottle-conditioned, meaning that it undergoes a secondary fermentation process in the bottle. This secondary fermentation process gives Belgian-Style Flanders Beer its characteristic carbonation.

When pouring Belgian-Style Flanders Beer, it is important to pour slowly in order to avoid disturbing the sediment that has settled at the bottom of the bottle. Belgian-Style Flanders Beer can be an acquired taste, but those who enjoy it often find that it is a complex and refreshing beer.
