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.

Highly vinegar scent with a touch of sour cherries. Orange brown opaque haze unfiltered. Sour and bitter. Makes you pucker up. Taste is overwhelmed by sour.can’t give you much. Tap

willisread (1301) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 19, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya shared at a sour tasting. Pours a brown with a tiny off-white head of foam that lingers for a bit. Oak on the nose with some light cherry aromas. Quite sour on the palate, like an aggressive Flanders red. The cherries are lost in a sea of sour and oak, but still good carbonation with a medium to full body. Finish is sour and lingers with some light vinous character. Not bad.

Thanks to willisread for sharing the bottle! Poured into a wine glass showing light caramel brown and sparse white foam. The nose shows light and barely perceivable cherries. The palate is highly carbonated and light bodied. Highly tart such that any other flavors are barely noticeable.

Hazy blood orange color. The cherries are pronounced with oak. The mouth is sour and overwhelms the cherries. Some oak is there, but sourness just dominated way too much.

jbruner (3204) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 6, 2015
Pours a hazy golden brown from the bottle with thin bubbly off-white head. Aroma of lactic acidity, funky earth, woody tannins and dark fruit. Taste is mostly the lactic and fruit, nice lingering acidity. Very nice.

Aging in wine barrels give this beer another layer of complexity. Full of sour cherry goodness that really lingers on the palate. Not lacking for flavour.

RLiddell (79) - Valrico, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2015
Bottle picked up in Napa. Pours a rich, hazy, golden color. Nose has hints of cherries along with the bit of funk that sour beers are known for. Taste is a nice bite of bitter cherries, lingering for just a couple of minutes, begging for another taste. Light carbonation and great, silky mouthfeel. This sour holds together even as it warms a bit, unlike some lesser sours that lose a lot of sour characteristics as they warm. Definitely recommended!
