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.

Lukaduke (2710) - Gray, Maine, USA - APR 24, 2014
Bottle thanks to Ontape ! Pours a ripe golden peach color with a finger of fizzy foam. Nose is full of funky vinous fruit, syrah grapes, sour cherry, leather, touch of sweet malt and a hint of light toasted vanilla. Palate follows the nose nicely with a good carbonation and layers of flavor. Great balance of funk and sour puckering vinous fruit.

yea this was VERY nice. Tons of complexity. The cherries come out in the background and really add to the flavors in the background. Pretty nice stuff.

blklab2007 (2098) - Connecticut, USA - APR 21, 2014
Bottle poured an orange amber color with a fizzle of white head. Aroma has mellow sourness, cherry, and a bit of yeastiness. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation on the lower side. Flavor definitely smacks on the sour side, tart cherry, mild barrel wood, and a long tongue watering finish. The malt side is like a half Flanders half golden mix.

Reynolds314 (2880) - Connecticut, USA - APR 20, 2014
Nice cherry sour. Pours golden amber with little head which is odd for a flanders red?. Aroma is light cherry and and heavy lactic sour notes. Taste is lightly fruity with some vinous character and oak.

emacgee (4404) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2014
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 (898) - 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.

Bottle share. Pours a hazy orange. Aroma of wet dog, sourdough, fresh fruit, white wine. Taste is tart and sweet. Super dry finish. Medium-high carbonation. Sticky.

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.

Brilliant rosy orange pour with quickly fading white head. Aroma is sour oranges, light alcohol, grapefruit. Flavor is tart cherry and citrus, some barnyard quality, vinegar.
