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.

Soft tawny gold pour with a reddish hue and thin fizzy head. Round cherry notes and a nice acidity with some fruity esters and an almost vitamin-y character. Nice tartness in the flavor with some cherry skins and wood. Moderate acidity.

Dr_Fellini (264) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy burnt amber color with a thin rim of off white head. Aroma is a bit mild, but pleasant. Slightly dry, tart, white wine, very little cherry, maybe some sourdough? Flavor is immediately sour, but not overwhelming. Slightly sweet. Lingering oily sourness in the finish. Excellent beer.

Marco_Gtz (8) - Vacaville, California, USA - APR 11, 2014 does not count
Bottled, poured into a tulip glass. Maybe its just not for me, expected more of the cherry & wine but was just overpowered by the sour.
