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.

EdKing (2434) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2016
Bottle from Kris Wines. Batch number 4. Colour is rich rusty orange to brown, cloudy, with a medium beige head which dissipates to nothing. I know there are some who dont like American sours, but when they get it right I love them. Nose is big lactobacilius sour, tart, bitter, aged apple cider, red apple skins, white wine vnegar, brown oxidised apple flesh, white apple sweetness. Taste is massive hit of lactobacilus sour and tartnesss but backed up by a nice full body of apple cider sweetness and tartness, funkiness, white vinegar, malt vinegar. Clean lines, not much funk in the nose but full flavoured.

explosivedog (494) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 3, 2016
375ml bottle (says batch no. 4). Pours pinky orange with no head and nice and fizzy. Aroma is tart, white wine and bread. Flavour is tart grape and cherry with a dry sour dough finish. The cherry doesnt lead as it does in a kriek lambic, it just adds a subtle note and some extra fruitiness.
