COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the tradition of the Lambics of Belgium but using a blend of Ale Yeast, Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, and Acetobacter. These microorganisms came from our culture collection as well as many collected by Dan around the wilds of Wisconsin! Fermented and aged in Oak. This beer spent the summer of 2009 aging outdoors in used oak barrels. Then bottle fermented. This is a funky and very sour beer not for the faint of heart. If you are unfamiliar with sour or Brettanomyces beers you may want to pass this one up!

Bang on! Poured with a fine white head that slowly settles, but lasts to the bottom and lots of lace. Color is a slightly pale yellow. Aroma is very yeasty, spicey, fresh cut grass, and grain. Flavor is like aroma plus a little lemon and lots of bitterness from yeast and Brett. Body is perfect and so is carbonation. Finish is clean and fresh. Slow sipping on hot summer days session.

Wow, a lot of guests lined up for this special tapping at 3:30 during GTMW 2010 Festival in Madison, Wisconsin. On draught pours a hazy golden straw colored brew with a thick white head that stayed with the glass throughout. Aroma of yeast, sour pear/apple, barnyard funk, lemon zest and toasted golden grain malt. Taste is medium bodied, plenty of sour yeast, lemon zest and a touch of sourdough bread. Finish is mildly sour with some barnyard funk and lemon zest. Actually I may want to age this a little and see how it turns out.

crisp straw gold with a massive head the quickly fades to nothingness. The aroma is oaky, with a very lactic character. some funk. The faintly lactic character dominates the sour body, but not a lot of funk.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2011 500ml bottle scooped up from the brewery. Thin, translucent orange-tan. Very lively carbonation, fast rising bubbles. Sour apple aroma. Very well done, quite sour. A wheaty, lactic edge as well. Sweet and lemony. The funky sour yeast has quite a lot of depth. Creamy malt body, but a solid lemon-lime tartness dominates. A slow sipper for sure, pretty intense stuff. I donít think it is quite on par with some of the Belgian greats, but this is still an awesome beer.

Juelze (1135) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Thanks for sharing bro. Pours a clean golden color with thin whispy white head. Aroma is of yeast funk, sour apple, light cheese, yogurt, and lemon. Taste is of lemon, light toasted grain, yeast funk, land light sourdough notes. It seems similar in a way to the sours NG uses, but in its own right itís delicious and something I could drink a lot of. Stellar.

Bottle. Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated slowly throughout the beer. Aroma had a nice combination of oak and sour notes with a bit of underlying funk. Flavor was sour that grew to a puckering finish with underlying oak and funk notes.

Petrucci914 (902) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Pours a golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is barn funk, sour apple, and intense citrus. Taste is sour apple, light grain, and light funk. A very smooth and easy-drinking Geuze - not as sour and pungent as some of the Cantillon offerings but all the correct notes are there. Wish this was available all the time.

1FastSTi (3285) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 Bottle. Pours to a hazy straw colored body with an off-white head. The aroma was funky oak and barnyard with lemon zest, pale malts, and sour fruits. The flavor was sour star fruit, funky but not overly so, and had a decent pale malt backbone. Nicely funky for Danís first try at this. The palate was tart and acidic/acetic. Delightful. This has aged really, really well. 6/7/12: this is getting even more sour. I am digging it a lot.

500ml bottle. Onion skin, lemon, orange, white pepper. Taste is tart, onion skin, cidery, some lactic acid, maybe a touch of acetic. Not terribly tart. There is also some funky, buytric aspect to it. There is also a good amount of oak lingering in the finish. Interesting at least.

New glarus r/d geueze. 500ml bottle purchased at the hilltop brewery... Pours a hazy, somewhat muddled, orangey brown with a thin soapy white head... Aroma of green, sour cream, and yogurt with apple notes. Started out with cherries and dark fruit at first the converts to a sour lactic appliness... Sour green apple, clean sourness, pretty dry on the finish. Nice lively carbonation and thin bodied which bodes well with the carbonation. very drinkable and great first attempt from an american sour perspective. i was quite pleased with this overall. 8/4/8/4/16
