COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Naturally soured by farm valley winds blowing wild yeast into our oak casks. Finally, after a year and a half of patient coaxing Wisconsin dark malts whirl in a kaleidoscope of cedar, caramel, and tart green plum exuberance. Available to the exclusive few who travel off the beaten paths, this is authentic Wisconsin sour brown ale. Truly unique this Sour Ale is brewed for those who live on the wild side and is suitable for laying down or consuming immediately, serve at 40-45 degrees F.

Caramel orange in color... Aroma of cedar oak, funk, soft nonpasteurized cheese... Flavor is caramel, fruits, plum initially, gives way to notes of blue cheese on the palate... Not crazy intense, perfect... Amazingly good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Scot at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours amber with a transient beige head. Aroma is sour fruit, but not overly acetic. Med body. Flavor is sour and reminds of peach. A rather delicate and tasty drink.

This one poured clear lgiht brown color with a small off white head. Aroam was lots of tropical fruit, mangos, peaches and pineapple. Light dyust and funky yeast. Flavor was an awesome boquet of flavors, melons, mangos, cherries toast, wood and mild funk. Just perfect sour balance too. Simply awesome, yet simple.

Pours a reddish orange brown. Aromas of tangerine and peach. Taste is sour and tangy. Extremely smooth and fruity. A well developed and "balanced" sour.

12oz bottle, courtesy of New Glarus. Thanks! Pours the color of golden-brown nectar; thin off-white head. Intense notes of sour pink grapefruit and a hint of dill; quite odd. Lively, zesty citrusy tartness, along with musty grapes and some pleasant wine-like / leathery complexity; but that odd dill quality makes this tough to love.

Bottle courtesy of Tooch4321. Cheers, Adam! Pours a hazy brownwith red highlights and an off-white head. Nose is dark malt, caramel, tart fruit, some general tartness, earth, and some funk. Flavor is similar with notes of citrus, some fruit, tartness, tart plums, some funk, some earth, and some wood. Medium in body and an outstanding American Sour.

Bottle from DrewFace. Aroma is strong vinegar. Flavor has surprisingly mild finish, initial tartness is a bit odd, but not sure what it is. Sour does not stay around to long. Decent.

12 oz. bottle shared with Tmoney99. Pours a deep amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor has a touch of cherry, mild raspberry, some tart citrus, toasted caramel malts, a mild vinegar character with some acidity. Opens to some tingly mouthfeel before softening at the finish. Somewhat dry with a light + body. Another solid brew from NG.

One of several bottles from bytemesis, thanks! It is going to be New Glarus week for me. Clear, burnt caramel color, plenty of foam but it doesn’t leave a trace after a couple of minutes. Aroma is sour fruit but i can’t place the source, i suppose plum based on the description. Something a bit unappealing to me, kind of like manure. The flavor i like much better. In addition to the sour, the body is dry from oaking, and there is a strong presence of nutty, caramel malt. Strange to have such different appeal between the nose and mouth. Overall i like it.
