The beer is an imperial flanders red ale . Spike Buckowski, head brewer at Terrapin states it is based off of “Big Hoppy Monster” a red ale. Spike’s brewing style has a German influence so he added rye malt into the mix. Brettanomyces yeast is used in Monstre Rouge, along with crystal malt and munich malt. American hop strains were used, and as a nice finishing touch Rouge was aged on American oak. This red ale will have a nice mix of both American and Belgian brewing styles.
More to follow on this beer as it gets closer to widespread release.
