A tribute to the historic Flanders Red Ales of West Belgium (and a reference to the vibrant NW Flanders Street in downtown Portland), Northwest Flanders is Cascade's interpretation of the classic sour beer style that has inspired so many brewers around the world. A blend of sour red ales aged for over two years in oak barrels and foudres, Northwest Flanders captures notes of plum, currant, raisin, fig and spice with hints of oak and roasted malt.
