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

12 oz bottle. Clear pink bronze with a fluffy white head. Nose is cranberry, lemon-lime, dough and mild funk. Medium light with a faint tingle. Taste is strawberry-vanilla yoghurt, candy apple and cinnamon. Hints of cranberry add a slight sourness but nowhere near as tart as expected. Very tasty but a bit too sweet and poppy for me.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Bottle shared by Bockyhorsey at the Black Friday tasting – thank Bill! Pours clear reddish amber with a thin tan head. The nose is wood, tart cranberries and sweet and sour cranberry sauce. The taste is cranberry juice, oaky vanilla and tart berries. Medium bodied. Good stuff and another nice fruit beer from these guys.

Ibrew2or3 (7997) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Courtesy of markwise. Pours clear brilliant copper with thin off white head. The aroma is an even mix of fruity cherry, cranberry and currants mixing with some modest funk, tartness and a touch of sweet malts. The taste is smooth cherry to sweet cranberry goodness mixing with modest Brett like tartness and smooth yummy near chewy malt sweetness.

TheGuy (653) - Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2009
12 oz. bottle poured a very light pink like a white zinfendel with a orangeish hue,thin and sparkling, aromas are almost white wine like oak and fruits, taste is of cranberries,oak,and alcohol a very elagent beer can i say that any way it states from dan that this is brewed in the belguim lambic tradition so i have to ask why is this listed as a fruit and not a lambic

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2009
ORF release, Thanks for sharing! Clear red pour with a fizzy pink head. Aroma is vanilla and cranberry. Flavor is lightly tart. Decent brew, but more of a fruity ale then a lambic. This beer had potential but just doesn’t really deliver especially as a "lambic"

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle from Cavie. Pours a weird orange with a thin head. Aroma of hard liquor and wood barrels. Tastes like bad whiskey and stale fruit.

Cavie (4221) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle courtesy of bonk0076, Clear orange pour. Bourbon aroma with a whisky smell. Very hard liquor-esque. Oaky flavor and smell. Taste has an aftertaste of soured apple. Everything improves until the finish. Dry to boot.

cwsample (163) - Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2009
Bottle from Cavie. I immediatly smell a barrel-aged whiskey scent. The color is a light red, like many lambics. The cranberry taste is light and not too offensive.

smooch (238) - Sylvania, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2009
A nice lambic with a good tart flavor. A smidgen of red across what would otherwise be a medium light amber coloring is a sign of what’s to come. Just a little foamy and spritzy. A nice one.

notalush (5669) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2009
Bottle from StFun (thanks, Josh!) - man, they filtered the hell out of this - clear light red, fizzy - loads of cranberry in the nose, as well as a light funk, mild acidity, oak, vanilla - fairly sweet up front, with the cranberry taking center stage, with some vanilla oakiness propping it up - moderate acidity develops through the middle, seeming mostly acetic, but with a bit of lacto in there, too - builds to vinegary late, but the sweetness returns to counter it - strong cranberry throughout - there is some funkiness there, but mostly this beer tastes sterilized, dead - don’t get me wrong, it tastes good, but in about six months, this beer is going to taste like ass.
