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.

3.64/5  rDev -13.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a light brown color with golden edges with an off white head. Smell is sour, tart wheat (sourdough?), a touch of cherry. Taste is more of the same but it seems a bit muted. Some caramel sweetness. The finish is short-lived. Not much complexity to keep me interested. The more I drink the less I think of this beer. This is a good beer but really falls short of my expectations. Tried this along with Red Poppy and Supplication. The Dogpatch Sour was the unanimous loser in the tasting. Again...its a good beer but there are many better options out there.
