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.

12oz bottle. Maple syrup pour with off white head. Doesnít last but not expected. Nose of citrus, pineapple, oak, and light oak. Nice balance of sweet and tart. Acidity not too high. Lots of fruit in the taste. Very heavy on tart plums with a caramel sweetness. Lower dryness in the finish. Very well balanced. NG is kicking ass right now. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home with my wife. Pour is clear reddish-amber with a small white head that quickly dissipated; decent lacing. Sour fruity, tannic, oranges, woody, lightly funky, raspberries, peach skin, light caramel, and cedar in the aroma. Taste is juicy sour oranges, peach, cranberry, wood, tannic, fruit peel, white grapes, and sour apples. Light body with high carbonation. Another awesome sour from New Glarus.

Mostly clear amber...whitish head. Sweet tart flavors up front, hints of balsamic. A mix of rodenbach and la folie. Good stuff!

12 oz bottle Light brown and slight hazy. No head. Slight musty with some tartness. Wow the flavors stand out but donít overwhelm. Very smooth with a bit of teeth numbness. Reminds me of New Belgium La Folie for the flavoring but not quite as dry. Sweet stuff.

Wow, what a great beer! Poured a bit cold, but that didnít seem to hurt it a bit. Had a 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. Flavorís like nose with spot on balance between sweet, sour, and bitter. Body and carbonation couldnít be better. Finish is like flavor, clean, rather long, and very easy drinking for whatís not usually so accessible, A masterpiece.

bookman10 (681) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Pours an amber-brown, rather cloudy, with little in the way of head. Aroma of fruit and sour florals. Flavor a complex mix of sour, tart fruits and the like. It is a very interesting beer and worth a try.

12 ounce bottle from the brewery. Pours a dark amber with a very small white head. Aroma of tart fruit, malt, and wood. Taste is tart cherries, sour green apples, caramel malt, other fruits, and wood. Wish I had bought more! Very, very good.

(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 havenít been too enamored with sours recently, but this one was quite good.
