COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Some people paint, some sing, others write… I brew". -Daniel Carey A few times a year we will cut Dan loose to brew whatever he chooses, uncensored, uncut, unplugged. Always handcrafted, the bottle you hold is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again. Sparkling and bright this is a Wisconsin original created for you in the traditional method employed by the Lambic Brewers of Belgium including five months of outdoor resting in oak barrels. Indigenous yeast and cranberries from the “wilds” of Wisconsin flawlessly pair to dance on your palette. You have discovered a rare and delightful treasure to be served cold in a fluted glass. Thanks for supporting the arts, Daniel and Deb Carey

Beautiful red pour with light white head. Aroma of carnberries, earthy yeast, funk. Flavor of tart cranberries, some cherry, A bit of puckering lactic sourness. Finishes sour. Finishes nice and dry. Another excellent fruit beer from New Glarus.

Just saw this at the store and bought in a 4-pack. Pours a light red with less than a finger of head; keeps a light lacing throughout the beer. Nose is floral with fruit. Taste is delicious - a very good lambic. Not too sweet, but not exceedingly tart as might be expected from a cranberry beer. A hint of oak in the flavor as well. Very good.

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Pink gold with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of wild yeast, cranberries, wood, vanilla, and toast. Taste of tart cranberry skins, cherry pit, bread, and a tart finish. Similar to the other NG fruit beers, thanks warriorsoul!

Thanks to warriorsoul for sharing this one. Pours a pinkish golden with little to no head. Aroma of tart cranberry, candy sugar, cherries reminds me a lot of the Belgian Red, but with cranberry! Aroma was also a lot like the Belgian Red. Tart cherry and cranberry, pie crust, like oak notes, some vanilla and a touch of some sour notes.

arkurzynski (1522) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Pours golden strawberry with pink head. Aroma is a combination of oak and flowers, with a hint of cranberry. Sour and dry cranberry, with some sweetness and oak. Not overpowering, but definately not lacking impact.

2009 Bottle - Thanks motortoddhead!! - Pours a beautiful clear, dark pink with a small pink head that dissipates quickly...aroma is oaky and fruity, cranberry and cherry...flavour is gorgeous, dry cranberries and cherries, heavy vanilla oak and slightly sweet honey...don’t expect an ass-puckering lambic cause this ain’t it, but it walks a great line alternating between sweet and tart...terrific beer...I could drink them all...

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2009
12 ounce bottle from New Glarus. Pours brown with a bit of a red tint. A short lived fizzy head formed but has long since passed. The nose is rich with ripe tart cranberries, and a robust oak character. Very full and complex fruit and barrel flavor with plenty of sprite carbonation and a mild dry finish. This one here is a winner.

Wow. Mellow, dreamy but still biting and punchy. As lambics go, the cranberry factor is BRILLIANT. Tart, potently yeasty, it smacks around the palate. Not only that, but the color is incredible. You just have to keep staring at this beer (pick a nice glass) because it fits so amazingly the autumn-rich / fruit-potency of the flavor. So very unique - - a mind-blowingl conflagration of style, care, skill, and ingredient.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Light amber with a hint of pink color. Moderate off-pink head. Sweet malt and berries mingle with a straightforward lambic essence (mix of barn and attic). Quite sweet in the front, with berries all over the place. Soft and creamy feel. Light acidity creeps in near the finish and into the linger. Some light oak and citrus also in the linger. Very easy drinking. Another great fruit brew for NG. Look forward to seeing how this one ages.

daknole (9115) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 7, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2011 This is friggin delicious! Red pour. Very light pink head. Aroma is sweet/tart. Honey,cranberries, loads of oak and some lemony notes. Flavor is sweet and tart. Just like good cranberry sauce. Lemony, oaky and awesome.
