COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with cherries and aged in wine barrels

This barrel-aged wild ale is named for our San Francisco neighborhood and pays tribute to the Flanders Red style of beer. Aged in wine barrels, this lightly tart ale is brewed with California Rainier cherries using a house blend of wild yeasts, bacteria and SF sourdough yeast. Pair this complex ale with ripe figs & blue cheese or seafood bouillabaisse.

Bottle. Significantly sour. Nice taste, but really not much fruit. Went well with our pizza made with morels, asparagus, and gruyere.

Vestergaard (840) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle shared by AlexanderDahl. Amber-orange, hazy beer with a fizzy, white head. Aroma has huge oaky vanilla, marzipan, cherry, brett. Taste is very very sour and dry. Cherry fruityness, but very little sweetness. Juicy, but still dry. Good one!

Alexanderdahl (72) - DENMARK - MAY 17, 2015
Pours hazy orange, suprisingly! Lots of brets, oak, vanilla and a little bit of cherry. Really dry, sharp sourness, yet fruity and smooth. Really sharp sour lemon on the end. Dries your mouth right out and keeps your mouth watering. Only a faint note of the cherry fruit, but lots of the acid sourness. Awesome !

Had at a tap takeover at Uncle Henry’s Deli in Downey. They had both the II and III varieties. Both were light amber in color and had some caramel and toffee in them. Really nice beers.

Oakes (13303) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle, from Ballard Beer Co. Bright orangey-amber colour. No head. Woody, fruity aroma with cherries and barrel evident, and a subtley vinous character. The taste has a little bit of cherry sweetness, followed by a lot of tartness, both lacto and vinegar. The barrel lends woody notes and roundness of body. The cherry taste is subtle and balanced throughout. It’s a nice, characterful sour.

Calisky (1561) - ALSACE, FRANCE - APR 19, 2015
Couleur ambrée/rouge trouble, très légère mousse qui disparait. Nez de fruits rouges et cerises vinaigrés et boisés (fut de vin). Gout de fruits rouges acidulés, puis vinaigrés, avec toujours cette note boisée de barrique. Bon corps. Superbe et intense, mais moins complexe qu’attendu. Fin assez longue fruitée vinaigre et tannins
