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.

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.

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!

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy brown/ruby with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of tartness and sour notes, a little funk, a little oak, a little dark fruits, and some caramel from the malts. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything, but could have a little more complexity. Average texture. A pretty good beer, but could add just a little more to make it great.

Bottle, cool extra from liquorbarrel, 10/15/2013. Pours ruby red with brownish tinge, thin head dies to nearly still surface within a minute or two. Aroma is mild tart green apple with darker fruit hiding beneath, touch of sweet caramel and subtle roast, vinous oak. Taste is bright cider, tart, melding nicely into spicy caramel, fruit wood notes in the finish. Light body, sparkling and vibrant. Quite nice.

Knock out of the park by New Glarus like usual. Really crisp and refreshing feel. Would love to have this again.

Thanks again to my cousin for this very sharp and sour brew. I realize there are lots of sour fans on RB, but to me a lot of these brews have a certain sameness to them, that kombucha-like, wildly fermented, vinegary tartness - and I guess you either get very excited about that or you don’t.

Large, tan, thick, foamy head that settled after a bit and a smidgen of lace. Color is a hazy medium amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is a heady, blend of tart, malt, spice, fruit, resin. Flavor’s like nose with spot on balance between sweet, sour, and bitter. Body and carbonation couldn’t be better. Finish is like flavor, clean, rather long, and very easy drinking for what’s not usually so accessible, A masterpiece.

Bottle. Pours clear reddish amber, small creamy beige head, slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is tart cherry, sweet tarts, lemon. Flavor is much the same, sweet and tart, cherries, lemon juice. Medium body, prickly carbonation. Kind of straddles the line between a fruit beer and a sour. Not particularly complex, but enjoyable
