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.

Bottle. It pours a hazy dark golden beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is quite sourish and tart, with cellar hints, hay, generic fruityness, peaches and passion fruit. Some pale malts. The cherries is present in the flavor, but rather weak, mostly in the form of almond, and there’s sourness, lemon notes, a doughy touch and some vinous notes. Funk. It’s medium bodied and nicely but heavily carbonated, and the finish lasts forever. Tasteful, refreshing and pucking this one, a bit more doughy than I prefer, but nice anyway. 150724

Mep3222 (987) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Woody cherry lactic sour aroma and flavor. Aroma has a bit of maybe funk or yeasty aroma to it?? Flavor is a great sour, maybe 7 of 10 lactic sour. Had this following cascade kriek, which is an amazing sour with cherry. This is really good but not quite the balance of cascade. Still really really good though. Complex, woody, sour, cherry. No real cherry sweetness, mostly tannic woody cherry. Cherry just works so well this type sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cherry aroma is the for front. The body is light and wine like, very refreshing. Similar to a brew with Sauvignon Blanc with the added fresh cherries. Ended with sour tartness. Really nice.
