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.

Bottle - Cherry and woody barrel notes. Hazy orange pink with almost no head. Tons of acidic tartness and light cherry. Although you can see the Flanders Red, it is much too acidic and doesn’t have near the complexity.

Damico (2892) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Pours a bit clearer amber cherry in color with a tiny and quickly dissipating clearer head. Aroma is sweet and creamy cherries so delicious! Tart is really prevalent but balanced and so enjoyed with the cherries laying so well on the palate.

BrewBoxer (2449) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours a cloudy dark tan color. No head. Tart and fruity with a nice balanced complexity. Very drinkable without being too puckery

This cloudy reddish beer has a strongly tart aroma. It has and incredibly light mouthfeel and the strong tartness that I love. It is smooth, clean finishing and very flavorful. I like it a lot!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beer-yum (816) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 20, 2014
An impressively full bodied ’sour’ that is one of the best examples of the style (over the top American) I have had.

Steasy66 (1086) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Absolutely overwhelming sour. Limited nose, limited fruit in the flavor. Just plain sour. Not the least bit complex.

On tap at Hops and Pie poured a hazy amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of caramel, cherry, light citrus and light funk. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of caramel, cherry, vinous notes, light oak and light funk with a crisp dry tart lingering fruity finish.

Concealer (943) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2014 Tap at hops and pie. Hazy amber with a small, off white head. Aromas of tart cherries, wood, caramel, earthy notes and light funk. Flavor is the same with some green apple and vinous notes. Medium bodied with moderate acidicity and a dry end.

pushkinwow (2243) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2014
375ml bottle from chebyshev. Hazy copper with a cream head that completely disappears - some sludge in the bottle. Opened at cellar temperature but much like the strawberry dogpatch this one got a lot more sour warming up to room temperature. Sour cherries, oak, dry, some chardonnay, epson salts, somewhat jamish and a hint of funk. Mild carbonation, sour and bit of funk body, lots of sour cherry but one dimensional. Worth trying though.
