Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Piddmeista on 07-25-2013

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.

Very tart and sour upfront. Once you get past that some sweet cheery and bready yeasty flavors come through. There are some red wine properties just shy of and in the finish. I get a slight vinegar backbone that is present throughout, from start to finish. I've had few sours such as Consecration by RR (on tap), but definitely not a sour expert. Looking for that one that will convert me to the sour side. Unfortunately, this isn't it. Good brew. Complex. Respect. Just not for me.
