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.

Pink peach color. No head.

Flavor is very sour and tart. Tart cherries. Fairly fresh. Decent amount of acidity. Lemon juice. Has a grapefruit flavor to.

Overall, a surprisingly good sour. Unexpected. I like it.
