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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy brown-red body, minimal lace. Smells like an oaky Oude Bruin that exceeded its boundaries. Cherries? A bit earthy and woody.
Tart up front, sweet midway through, cherries & red apples at the end. Couldn't detect the standard New Glarus yeast presence until it warmed a bit; this now lingers after swallowing. Delicious, as is par for the course with NG. Need more!
