Our Brewmaster Dan launched his Wild Fruit Cave this winter brewing Oud Bruin, a Flander’’s style ale that is immensely complex both tart and sweet. Soft toffee notes lead with a blend of Wisconsin, Brittish, and German malts that first rested in the Coolship before spontaneously fermenting on oak in the cave. Hallertau hops, matured in the horse barn, elegantly support sparkling fruit notes that frolic before a punctuated oak finish. 100% naturally fermented in oak vessels this is an elegant beer that can be enjoyed now or the patient few can lay in their cellar to age. Thanks for supporting the arts! Daniel & Deborah Carey

jeremyh70 (841) - Missouri, USA - APR 2, 2015
Pours a garnet tinged muddy tea color with a persistent tan head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma of vinous fruit, oak, and a bit of apple cider vinegar. Taste is fruity sweet with a combination of apple, fig and raspberry. A slight hint of malt vinegar, toasted oak, toffee and a hint of cinnamon. Finishes with some oak and malt. Mouthfeel is semi creamy with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Very nice blend of flavors and low level of sourness.

Bottle with Jenny during our snow day and Scream marathon. I had this during Muckfest, and most of us agreed it tasted young and needed more age on it before rating. So here we are, 7 months later, thanks to all those bottles SHARED BY MOTORTODDHEAD WHO DOESN’T LIKE ANY OF THAT FUNKY SOUR SHIT. Nothing really changed here: some mild cherry pie and toffee notes but otherwise very little flavor. Just not a lot going on. It’s clean, at least. Nose is mild of really sweet toffee and slight cherry pie Flavor is similar. Not bad, just a bit of a dud knowing New Glarus.

sebletitje (7235) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2015
Bouteille 335ml via IP trade thanks to Jeff - Bacterial. Ambrée présentant un léger trouble, col épais et crémeux beige. Arôme offre un bouquet de sucre brun résiduel avec cette impression de fruits fermentés. En rétro, je note une légère note boisée qui est, elle aussi, judicieusement placée. Palais est aigrelet assez agréable, sucre brun tirant presque sur le toffee accompagné de fruité noir, malt caramel, légèrement grillé. Petite note boisée de chêne avec une note épicée. Rappelle de mûres et de griottes pour le profil aigrelet.

_angst_ (3278) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle courtesy of summer santa 2014. Pours reddish brown with a small reddish beige head that leaves some sparse spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sour and malty with dark bread, caramel, cereal, lemon juice, blackberries, cranberries, moist soil, minerals, hay and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, slightly sour, malty and tiny fruity with crisp bread, dark bread, butterscotch, lemon juice, yoghurt, pineapple, cranberries, hay, moist soil, minerals and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is soft, tiny dry and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and tiny sour with dark bread, crisp bread, cereal, lemon juice, pineapple, cranberries, moist soil, hay, dry soil, minerals, lemon zest and hints of sheet metal. A nice drinkable beer but nothing that slows you away like other New Glarus Sour Red/Brown.

Marheb (2824) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Une expérience en deux temps. Tout d’abord habitée d’une certaine richesse, elle diffuse ses jets de vanille, toffe, fruits rouge avant de sombrer aqueusement dans une mineralité qui frôle le métallique. L’oxydation a aussi fait son chemin mais le 3/4 de chaque gorgée est bien ficelé. Agréable, sans plus.
