I think this is the beer that opened my eyes to different styles. Reminds me of a sour, but I canít call it one. This is not my "normal" type of beer but I could drink this all the time!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A beautiful red color, clear, with a pretty good head and pretty good lacing. Again, a beautiful color!
Smell is sour crab-apples with a little wood, but nothing at all beer-like to me. Still, it smells very nice.
Taste is much like a wild ale. Very tart. Crab-apples, cherries and sour-berry flavors dominate. Lightly sweet. I taste little in the way of traditional malts or hops here. However, this stuff tastes GREAT! Iíve ticked it now, but itís staying on my wants list anyway. I love this beer!
Itís pretty light bodied, mostly dry, with a tart, light fruity aftertaste. Easy to drink and downright delicious.
Drink is off the charts. I could drink this all the time.

Sour fruity aroma with a hint of yeast. Pours a ruby red with white quickly fading head. Fruity (apple and citrus) sourness with enough sweet to balance it. Very refreshing character.

A really well rounded, nicely made sour.

Had this at a beer tasting. Not sure if this type of beer is my style, I will try again in the future though. Amber brown pour with a small head. Very sweet and tart, too much for me.

Im not really familiar with sours. Is this really considered a sour or a fruit beer? Man im a little too buzzed right now and the beer has been gone for a couple hours. It was decent though. Apple and grape flavors going on. Not bad. L

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2012 Aroma is awesome lots of oak with some cherry and vanilla. Pours A golden amber color. Small off white head that dissipates quickly. Medium carbination. Tart cherry and Sour but not overly sour up front, gives way to oak and vanilla, with a slight smokeyness. Finishes with a slightly bitter oak and fermented cherry aftertaste.The oak adds alot to this beer. My favorite New Glarus brew, one of my favorite beers overall. Its really almost perfect. It is kind of acidic though like any beer with some fruity character to it. This bottle is about a year old, never rated it fresh yet. It changes as it ages some but not for the worse, some of the tartness goes away a little.
Update: 2012 batch.
Still as sour and great as ever. One of my favorite beers. Really changed as it warms up.Very heavily carbonated, donít remember that so much.

From bottle (thanks kmweaver) pours ruby and bright with fine effervescence.
Aroma is tangy and brown sugar with acidic note, with much more to come in flavor. Lush sour cherry and leather co-mingle on the tongue with lactic acid pop and acetic note, then lightly drying finish. Leather and dried apricot also follow. Intriguing.
