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.

jercraigs (8644) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2015
2015-08-21. Lightly hazy dark red-amber body, small head. Aroma of fruit, cherry and cherry pits, lightly woody funk. Flavour is sour, vinous lactic character. Mild sour cherries. Average to light bodied palate, soft carbonation. I find the vinous character dominates over some of the more nuanced aspects for me but it is nice nonetheless. Enjoyable. Bottle shared by Wilco.

Hoprider (162) - DENMARK - AUG 23, 2015
Clear copper-red pour with a small white head. Slight metallic cherries and oak coming through on the nose along with a mixture of forrest berries. Some yoghurt sourness too.. But only just. The mouthfeel is medium with a light carbonation ending in an oily coating. Taste is sour with cherry pits and an oaky softness. Nice, refreshing and mouthwatering.

Taste is face-melting sour (10/10), wood, some wet dog. Possibly the most sour beer Iíve had, although my memory isnít the greatest. Excellent!
