On tap into a snifter at the Madison brew pub (from my notes): Opaque glowing red with fizzy head that’s lasting. Looks like a less-good La Folie. Smells of wine, apple, and red-wine vinegar. For some reason, I thought it had a "Russian River quality to it," despite a surprising lack of big sourness. First impression was of round sour apple sauce with a brief push of acidity. Oaky darkness all through is what reminds me of Russian River. The finish has a dry astringency that happens without you noticing it; you just feel the aftereffects on your tongue, like someone has disinfected it with something that evaporated; tastes a bit like Tilex (not that I would know that). Stays bright, and the carbonation keeps it from being too watery in feel, but it doesn’t really go anywhere; the first push of flavor is good, but it’s meh from there on out. Seems toned down from something that had potential.

6/21/2008. Snifter at downtown location. Clear copper orange with a small off-white ring. New oak up front with some caramel and cherries following. Kinda reminds me of Flossmoor de Zuidentrein a bit. Flavor turns only slightly buttery, still oaky with a little less caramel, hints of cinnamon. Acidity/tang peaked ~ a 2. Moderate carbonation with a light body. Not too bad--I liked Ned Flanders from Grumpy Troll more.

Solid sweet aroma. Is this a barelywine? The aroma the sugar hop bite of an American example of the style. The body threw me for yet another loop. Tart tart cherries. Cinnamon. Faint sourness. Almost a Flanders red.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Sampled on draught at the downtown location: Pours a beautiful translucent ruby red colour with lots of spritz. Head was full and pinkish, but quick to dissipate. Aroma was slightly tart, fresh berries, raspberries perhaps and floral. Taste was creamy, soft and tart- very creamy on the palate. finishes very long. First sour from the folks at Great Dane- excellent job!

Slight tart. Little bit of ruby color. On tap downtown. Wife said no to it, so I finished it.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 19, 2008
Lightly hazed brown color with hints of ruby when held to the light. Smallish off-white lid of small bubbles. Dark caramel and light cherry aromas. Heavier malt flavors, with more dark caramel, bit of brown sugar and slightly tart cherries. I find this very well balanced. Nothing real complex in the flavors, but malty, a bit fruity and just a touch of acidity. Smooth feel. Mild wood in the finish and linger.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 5, 2008
Draft at the downtown location. 6oz snifter. Poured a slightly hazy reddish color. Head was white and reduced quickly to a thin ring. Pleasant aroma and flavor of cherry and wood. Light bodied with subdued acidity. Light and breezy. Pretty good.
