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.

Davros (2726) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2016
Pours murky copper with a fading head. Nose shows funk, lemon, soft cherry. Some hints of vanilla and woody oak too. Massively acidic flavours, with supporting cherry/marzipan sweetness, faint lemon and oak.

Atom (2115) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle pours a hazy brownish Amber with a large khaki head. Aroma of oak, vinous, Brett, light tart cherry. Taste is very sour, vineager, oak, wild yeasts, light tart cherry. On par with many Kriek style beers, but lacking complexity or originality.

JDBaker11058 (1844) - Maryland, USA - FEB 25, 2016
appearance: coppery red, hazy, with a short, fizzy light tan head that vanishes quickly. aroma: sour cherry and raspberry, fairly astringent on the nose, with some woody notes and balsamic vinegar. taste: bitingly tart and sour, with cherry, raspberry, general stone fruit (mostly underripe), with a bit of oak and a ton of vinegar. finish: lingering tartness, more sour as it warms, also a little bitter, with lasting astringency. notes: I like my sours a little less, um, angry. This was aggressively sour and astringent. Bottle from Sarah for Beerdvent 2015.

arkurzynski (2196) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Hazy reddish brown. Nose thick with sour citrus, vinegar, boozy wine barrel, oak, fruit, and light acetone. Flavor is tart, boozy citrus and vinegar with some vinous notes and oak barrel. Somewhat heavy-handed.

IndianaRed (3693) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 19, 2016
Almanac tap takeover at PreFunk Nampa hazy brown with a small light tan head. Woody and earthy sour tartness. I found it fairly aggressive in the sour character and the wood/barrel aging is apparent.
