COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light bodied, tart and refreshing sour blonde ale refermented in French oak barrels and aged on plenty of Wisconsin cranberries. Central Wisconsin is cranberry country, so it was easy to fall in love with the idea of aging our insanely tart sour ale on this beloved super fruit. We used two pounds of cranberries per gallon for maximum pucker factor. This is what taking chances is all about.... Going all out and ending up with something this wonderful.

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a kool-aid like clear red with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sour cranberry with a bit of sweet grains and a light barrel. Flavor is quite sour with cranberry, has a bit of acid and a light barrel note.

Bottle thanks to Team Wisconsin. Pours a gorgeous ruby with small pinkish head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong berry, funk, oak. Thin mouth, very sour, cranberry, light funk and oak, very nice.

ineedbeer (1770) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 3, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Aroma is nice with some medium light funk and a bit of acidity. Light lemon notes with a bit of an light herbal, funky note. Light oak with some cranberry notes. Pours a nice bright pink color with some haze and medium sized, thin, slightly ink head that recedes to the edges where it lingers a bit. Light lacing and faint legs. Flavor is nice with medium acidity, but soft with some medium light lemon citrus notes. Moderate cranberry notes that work nicely with the acidity. Some light oak and funk notes. Light bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice cranberry sour with faint funk notes. Nice, soft beer with a bit of acidity that works nicely. Needs more funk though, but this is otherwise great.
