COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The “Back Forty” is property commonly found on the outskirts of the Wisconsin family farm. Here uncultivated acres wait prime for adventure- forts, tree houses, rope swings and first kisses! A place to run away, to camp, to climb, to build, to play. Not actually home but not too far away. That’s the Back Forty. The beer you hold is similar both dark and adventurous still smooth and familiar. Here’s a beer you can enjoy without pretense or explanation. Every mind requires some acres of possibility, space for dreams, the great escape, everyone needs a Back Forty.

naivepegasus (329) - USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours a slightly cloudy light brown with a hint of orange, with about a half a finger of off-white slowly dissipating foamy head. Brown sugar and dark fruits in the nose. A little watery mouthfeel, Some light malts in the taste that goes into a raisin finish. I like this better than I thought I would actually.

dogfishho (586) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2013
Pours a muddy brown with a fair amount of carbonation. On the nose, there’s very little there. Some old pennies, a touch of maple, and not much more. On the palate it is sweet and finishes with a slightly bitter/sour cleanup on the end. Meh

camborne (655) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2013
Malty toffee nose. Taste follows suit along with some Candi sugar and fruitiness. Finish is smooth and leaves palate quickly. Tad watery is only compliant.
