Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A- Golden honey. Looks sweet and heavy for 7.5%. Tiny bubbles
S- Puckery cherry, acidic grape barrel, biscuit
T- Sweet then sour, finishes biscuity (definitely get the sourdough). Slightly fruity but more honey biscuit. Touch of funk. Very tasty
M- Small punctuated bubbles that still let your tongue taste the beer. Heavy for 7.5%
0- Outstanding beer. In the world of sours there's so much to explore that I would imagine trying others before diving back into this one, but a great beer I would buy again and enjoy.

Batch #2

P: Cloudy, gelatin almost, apricot body with a thin effervescent white cap.

S: Tart sourness with a dirty fart bubbling in the background.

T/M: Funky mouth puckering sourness. Aged granny apple cider and rotten wood. Brings tear jerkers to mind. Astringent and vivacious feel.

O: My teeth hurt from this sour monster.
