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.

Delicious sour. This has a healthy dose of bretty funk going on, bracingly tart. Refreshing.

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.

czar (4352) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2013
b-day beer. pours hazy light golden, pink tint, with a nice off-white head, some retention and lacing. bretty, oaky, cherries, cheese, hint of vanilla, plums, bourbon, but mostly winey red grapiness, light to medium acidity - nice profile - moderate acetic notes, some lactic and citric, very hint of toasted caramel and sweetness, grassy and aged hops feeling but also fresh cucumber-minty notes in the finish. average to moderate carbonation, light body - very oily, slightly puckering and grassy-herbal-citrusy woodsy finish. excellent!

valpoaj (631) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2013
bottle pour...opaque reddish brown...thin film for a head that has a lasting ring around the edges. aroma is mild...green apple, sour fruit, splash of caramel, and catching a touch of leather...good, but not overwhelming. flavor is solid though...tart, sour, apples, bit of wood...very ’Flanders’ like...and that’s not a bad thing. palate is very easy drinking for the style...good dryness that keeps you coming back for more, while the level of sour keeps this more than a sipper. I liken this to a toned-down enigma. starting to wonder if it is legal from a guy from Chicagoland to be such a fan of something from Wisconsin, but Dan Carey just doesn’t disappoint!

Lukaduke (2181) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Pours a rusty brownish red color with a finger of bubbly eggshell foam. The nose is cider vinegar, plum, rustic composted fruit. The palate is a bit acedic with lots of sour fruits, wet wood and some round caramel background and lemon zest. Touch thin on the mouthfeel with a lingering mineral finish.

BlowOffTube (472) - Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Really like this one. Thanks madbeerbaron. Pours a reddish brown with a thin quick white head. Sour cranberry plum and cherry as aroma and taste along with lemon juice and a sour kick that leaves your mouth watering. Thin refreshing body and tiny little bubbles. Very good.

Patrickctenchi (3646) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Pours slightly unclear amber/brown with a heavy, vaniila head. Sour cherry, hay aroma. Tart, lactic cherry, berries. Nice blending of sweet and tartness. Very good...but then, of course, it’s NG...

b3shine (5421) - Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks StFun). Looks good for the style; a cloudy copperish brown with off-white lacing. Smells solid; sour in a Flanders-esque kind of way. Cherry and mild lacto. Tastes like it smells with a nice, fairly lively mouthfeel. Good beer.

MIBRomeo (2559) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Amber reddish pour full quiclly dissipating head off white. Funky fruity aroma lightly sour amd a touch sweet at the same time. Avg palate. Fruity more sweet than sour wild berries amd a hint of leather. Easy drinking.
