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

islay (1378) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 15, 2014
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 11-10-14. Tart, floral, fruity, funky, mineral, strong aroma. Pours a clear, bright, sparkling pink or dark salmon color. Looks like a rose sparkling wine. Small amount of beige head. Produces some lacing. Very cool appearance. Sour, tart, citric taste features a citrus soda flavor. Quite flavorful. Cranberry and cranberry juice. Very tart. There is a fructose sweetness, but the tartness dominates the sweetness. Red wine-like taste. Herbal finish. Lively and biting in the palate. Light to medium body. Overall, Cran-bic is a really nice beer, another winning fruit beer from New Glarus. It’s not quite as overwhelmingly awesome as the even more fruit-heavy Belgian Red, Raspberry Tart, and Serendipity, but it is still very, very good.

ads135 (3302) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Another solid beer from New Glarus. Their mastery of fruitiness and sourness reaches a rarely seen subtly in this one. Light pink and toeing the delicate balance between slightly sweet and slightly sour. Courtesy of Josh at my b-day party.

burg326 (4337) - Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Poured an oranges color with aromas of dry cranberries, light malt and some tartness. Flavors match the aromas with tart cranberries and some light tartness. Love this beer could drink this all day.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle from unknown via Chris H. Pours A pale pink, little bit of head. Aroma arch, doughy, some lacto, vinous, yeast character. Not entirely appealing, to be honest. Body is full and lush, with a lingering tartness and just the right amount of sweetness. I’m apparently not as head over heels about this as some, but a solid beer nonetheless.

tom10101 (3613) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle (12 oz). From Rich, thanks! Hazy golden/orange with a small quickly disappearing white head and almost no lacing. Aroma is of cranberries, oak, vanilla, light sweetness and light spiciness. Taste is a nice mix of sweet and sour with cranberries, an important wood presence and light spiciness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Cranberries sourness finish. Quite tasty and easy drinking despite the moderate sourness. Interesting balance. Not the most complex brew.

GlasgowTAD (347) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - NOV 5, 2014
355ml bottle as an extra from elytsdlo - thanks again dude! Epic extra! This pours rose with no head. Aroma is strong cranberries and damp hay bales. Cranberries are prevalent in the taste which follows into a sweetishly sour experience.
