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.

on-tap, collins pub

from notes

In the vein of Supplication, but quite far from that level. I like Rainier cherries, but they are far from the most flavorful and seem like a poor choice to incorporate in a beer - so its no surprise that the cherry billing was a bit of a letdown. Moderate tartness - lots of vinous notes, wood, sugars. Good, but not great and not on the same level as the other wild ales I've had from Almanac

Serving type: on-tap
