Recipe does not conform to the Flanders Red Ale style.
Originally taken from Spring 2014 issue of Craft Beer & Brewing
The recipe for Reclamation Red has undergone several different iterations, but it started out as an attempt to brew a barrel-aged version of Stone's Arrogant Bastard. The recipe, modified for significantly lower IBUs, has become our house Burgundy Sour recipe and is a great backdrop for aging with a wide variety of fruits. Reclamation Red took two medals at the 2014 Big Beers Festival homebrew competition in Vail, Colorado. The nectarine version took Silver in the Sour Category as a Flanders Red entry, and the blackberry version took bronze in the Belgian Specialty category.
