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.

Bottle shared by Adam, the night before my wedding, thanks! Pours a hazy deep reddish brown with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sour fruits with a bit of grain and some light funk. Flavor starts with sweet dark fruits and some underlying grains with a bit of funk in the finish.

Bottle via sloth... Smells great! Sour cherries, sawdust, tart fruit, green apples. Poured aggressive into a snifter, big old head. Ruby red in color, good lacing left on the glass. Taste has a nice sourness to it with out being mouth puckering. Slight sour cherry taste, cedar notes. Medium body, little dry, easy to drink. Overall: Nice brew, thanks bertttttttttt!

330mL thanks to t0rin0! Pours a clear deep ruby with massive yellow foam. Webby to sheets of lacing. Nose is really incredible- a decadent dessert medley of cranberry pound cake, cream sherry, flambeed dark cherries, hazelnut liquor. Taste is rich as well with cranberry dessert, bourbon barrel butteriness that is in NG Enigma and Old English Porter. Soft, subtle sourness. One of the most interesting takes on this style. Loved it!

12 oz bottle. Hazy brown with lacy froth. Nose is clean barnyard, lemon zest, bubblegum and marjoram. Sharp carb with a creamy body and lingering buzz. Taste is sour honeydew, lime, kiwi and tomatillo; a veritable green fruit orgy. So fresh and beautifully tart. Awesomely quaffable.

Thanks, Alum! Pours a hazed amber, little to no head. Aromas of fruit, slightly sour. Some vinegar. Yogurt. Taste is yogurty plums with sour apples. Finishes pretty sour with a decent pucker. Pretty nice.

Not really a fan of sour browns but this has changed my mind about their potential. Well-balanced on the palate (acidity vs sourness) and well-balanced flavors (fruit vs wood). Nice dry finish. Easy drinking.
