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.

Hazy deep amber beer with a tidy peach coloured head. Palate is dry and crisp. Nice sourish twang here. Sourish fizzy cherry sweets. Winey tang - grapey. I assumed this would be a red wine barrel but maybe it’s white wine. LIttle wood. Finishes light and crisp. Very nice.

Tasting at Matt’s
Hazy amber color, small head. Some smell of wood and vegetables, light sourness, vewry light fruit. The mouthfeel is very dry, sour, a bit lemony, some berries, but utterly boring, with no complexity.
