"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

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.

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.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Pours red with a tan head. Smells of pronounced cranberries, some dry malty hints. Tastes of tarte cranberries, some lactic hints, some earthy undertones, lightly peppery.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Pours a clear, rose-tinted amber with a short-lived, scant white head. Instant whiff of cranberries upon opening the bottle. This fades quickly to be replaced by a sweet, creamy wild yeast funk. Initially tart flavor, fruity, but anything distinctly of cranberry is very subdued. Wild yeast slowly takes over the flavor with undertones of chocolate and cheese. Finishes sweet. Medium body, strongly mouthcoating. Light warmth and sparkle.

CanIHave4Beers (3217) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 3, 2009
Pours a brilliant rose color with a big fluffy white head and a pretty lace. There are lots of champagne like bubbles in the glass. The aroma is mildly funky with some sweat and some pronoucned sweet fruitiness. The flavor is tart and mildly sour with a lot of cranberry and sour cherry flavors, this is complimented but a mild nuttiness. The beer is delicious but it’s a tad sweet to my tastes. Thoes who like Beglian Red will no doubt like this.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Sampled from 12-oz bottle, shared by MatSciGuy during Darkness Day 2009 in Brooklyn Center, MN. Pours a semi-hazy amber red colored brew with a hot pinkish white head that has some nice retention. Aroma of tart red berries, a hint of yeast and some barnyard funk. Taste is nicely balanced between tart and sweet berries/cranberries with some yeast and earth herbs in the background. Finish is slightly tart with some cranberry and yeast aftertaste. A tad lighter than the Belgian Red and not as tart as the Raspberry Tart.

kosko20 (350) - Hopewell Junction, New York, USA - OCT 30, 2009
This stuff was amazing, thanks to Levi once again. Pour was a beauty gold red. Aroma was that of cranberries, cherries. Flavor is wonderfully sour and semisweet. Palate is tart, perfectly carbonated. Overall this is great but compared to the Belgian Red, not quite there.

madvike (2696) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2009
Bottle - Pours rosy copper with a white head. Smells a lot like NG Belgian Red -- the cranberries smell sweet and practically hit you from across the room. There’s actually some cherry smell in there too. Not sure what that’s about. There’s a bit of tart, but mostly it’s sweet. Taste is more tart, with a little sourness on the finish. It’ll be interesting to see if this dries out over time, because it’s pretty sweet now. It’s a bit syrupy, but the velvety carbonation makes for a nice mouthfeel. Superb.
