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: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours cloudy brick red with a 1/2 inch off-white head that quickly disappears completely and leaves almost no lace.

The smell is of cherry skin, grapes, faint lemon and a hint of vinegar.

The taste is of very tart, unripe cherries, grapes and a sour citrus finish.

The texture is medium bodied with high carbonation. Effervescent and refreshing.

Once you get past the initial lip-puckering tartness, this becomes a refreshing and tasty American wild ale.

4.31/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a murky brownish orange color with a slight hint of red to it. A half finger tan head quickly settles in the glass.

S: Tart and a touch acetic. Red cherry skin, a bit of bready malt, lemon, white wine and some dusty barnyard notes. Very nice.

T: Opens tart with lemon, white wine and rolling waves of tart red cherry over the palate. Slight bit of oak, lemon seed and pink grapefruit. A long lingering tartness lasts forever. I like this a lot.
