A few times a year, we will cut Dan loose to brew whatever he chooses, uncensored, uncut, unplugged. Always handcrafted, this beer is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again. A complex and intriguing original. The mystery began with wild yeast spontaneously fermenting a rich treasure of malted barley and cherries. Unlined Oak casks breathe deep vanilla hues and chords of smoke into this sour brown ale. Our Master Brewer has forged a smooth garnet tapestry that defies description. Wander off the beaten path.

From a bottle. Poured hazy reddish-brown color with a large foam head that dissipates slowly. Cherries and vanilla dominate the aroma. Flavor has cherries, vanilla, and minimal sourness. Would have liked more acidity, but it is still a pretty good tasting beer. Pretty solid fruit beer, but was hoping for more a more sharp sourness.

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle. 2010 version. Pours a hazy murky orange brown color. Head dissipates rapidly. Light bodied. Initially light malt fades into sour cherries and vanilla bean. Just a little bit of fizzy funk. Trying to clear out some beers sitting in the cellar, this is a very pleasant surprise.

akoeninger (686) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Pours reddish amber. Smell is tart with lots of cherry. Taste cherry and sweet and very tart up front, but gets very complex as you drink. It finishes with very subtle wisps of smokiness. Great fizzy feel. Very, very good beer.

Godofthecellar (677) - NYC, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle generously given as an extra by preisj Poured into hill farmstead stemware, clean into the glass with no head or lacing. Smell of cherry and oak, taste follows the same notes while packing a sour pucker after taste. Very fruit juice like reminds me serendipity

Pours clear and light brown with a redish hue and thin off white head aromas sre of cherries,vanilla,and smokey oak, the flavor and mouthfeel are of tart cherries and sweet vanilla and dry oak finish with a hint of smoke my first sour hope to have more very soon

jbrana (640) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - JUN 3, 2013
This is a really interesting beer with flavors of apple juice, cherry, and cinnamon. It has a nice tart and sweet flavor, but is a bit reminiscent of sparkling cider.

nsquishee (638) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - JUN 19, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2010 Wow, this is one strange, interesting, beer. Bright, reddish-brown color with very little head that diminishes quickly. Highly carbonated, sour cherry flavor with notes of oak barrel and smoke. Not something that you would drink regularly, but this might go very well with something chocolate flavored.

Bottle. Brown pour with tons of lacing. Fruity nose with some vinegar. Very tart with lots of apple. Finishes sweet.
