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.

A - pours a hazy honey amber, a timid head vanishes quickly.

S - funky and acidic, pickles, funky cheese, white vinegar, sharp woody cherry aroma

T - lemon and tart cherry sourness right off the top. Sharp vinegar sourness, a good bit of funky salty cheese, tart cherries are a strong component of the sourness. Finishes dry and puckering.

M - Medium body with nice carbonation for a sour. Dry finish with plenty of sour.

This will knock the enamel off your teeth. Great cherry fruit with a solid sour aspect. Worth seeking out.
