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 (Batch 4) shared at the Dec 2016 Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Group meeting in Chez Sophie. Cheers Simon for this sour puss of a beer. Poured a cloudy orange/amber, full off-white crown. Aroma was sour cherries, as was the taste: acidic and tart from start to finish.

onceblind (8435) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Hazy deep rosey colored with a fast dissipating head. Deep rosey tart aroma with cherries and wood and funky acidic tartness. Pretty sharp sourness on the flavor with bright red wine tones and oak and cherries and a smooth earthy sour funk on the end. Slightly almost too tart but very richly red wine and cherryish.

Batch 4. Big fizzy head like on a clear brownish red pour. Big cherry aroma. Pretty clean with some old wood and just a touch of funk. Maybe s bait of raisin. Extremely start. Cherry jolly rancher flavor with a dry finish

EdKing (2477) - 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.
