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) Pours a semi-hazy reddish brown color with a medium off-white head that settles to a thin cap. Looks apple cider-like in color. Aroma of fermented refuse, oak, pepper jam, cinnamon, sweet tarts, and sour fruit. Perhaps some smoke with further warming; the scent keeps changing. Flavor holds apple cider vinegar, crushed vitamins, caramel, peaches, sweet tarts, and abundant oak towards the finish which creates a nice drying effect. Peach gets stronger with warming. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is sprightly. I haven’t been too enamored with sours recently, but this one was quite good.

Bottle pour into a New Glarus footed glass. Light on the head. Reddish brown color. Perfect amount of sourness in my book. Malt is there to finish it well too.

Ernesto987 (3687) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 5, 2013
The happy beer fairy dropped this gem off to me, vanilla and softly tart this beer has been aged gracefully to give it a blend of cherries, vanilla, and oak. FANTASTIC SHIT

Red-brown pour with a thin white head. Aroma is sour, cherries. Taste is sour, green apple, cherries, finishes dry and sour. Oak. Sourness is just right, not puckering. Tasty beer. I am glad I bought a lot of it.

callmemickey (2696) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Muddled red-brown body, medium sized off-white head, spotty lacing. Cherry pie, caramel, dark berries, and plums. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, pleasant acidity, lingering finish.

DalzAle (1977) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle thanks to portableparty. Dark brown pour, slightly frothy thin head and an aroma of wonderful tart woody cherries. Flavor is also nice tart dark cherries, raspberries, sour red grapes and more nice dry wood on the aftertaste. Good god what a great beer, they could ask twice as much for it and I would still buy it.

PhillyCraft (3185) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 Bottle, pours murky brown with medium white head, lacing is about the same. Aroma is a mix of the most recent enigma batch and unplugged apple. Lots of cherry, oak, granny smith, cranberry and vanilla going on. Flavor is ultra tart apple skin, sweet cherry, plum, vinegar, pie crust, and berries. Carbonation is medium and so is the body. Pretty solid

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear deep red brown with persistent offwhite head. Nose is Brett with subtle plastic and faint caramel. Cherry and subtle pie spice. On tasting, intense lacto tartness, hop flavor is moderate with spice and caramel sweetness. Odd beer here, but ok.

What a fun beer. Beautiful nose. Clear, dark orangish pour, slight white head. Sour nose, more than the taste. Woody and dark fruit notes in the taste - very nice. Light, easily drinkable. Thanks for sharing Caleb!

Bottle. Pours is a hazy brown with no head, no carbonation. Aroma is tart dark fruit, cherry/plum. Flavor matches the aroma, really tart but not mouth puckering sour.
