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. Brown/copper with a quickly dissipating beige head. Lots of funk. Bright berry and the right amount of tart.

jredmond (7685) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle shared with Vinny and Frank. Pours a clear amber brown with thin off white lacing. Aroma is light overall - vague fruits, light vinegar and juice. Mouthfeel is light - eveverscent and almost soda-like with notes of fruit, juice and maybe some spicy vinegar.

JStax (5478) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2013
12 ounce bottle shared. Pours a lighter copper with a soapy white head. The aroma is big on earthy vinegar and has some cheese notes. Interesting, but a bit lacking in complexity and the type of sourness I look for in a sour beer. Very sour, don’t get me wrong, but one dimensional, and not a dimension I prefer.

Bottle shared by Tom with Shin and Jan. Pours chestnut clear with a foamy pale tan head. Aroma of ocean, lightly cooked brown sugar, vanilla, lactic acid, subtle cherry, oak, and faint cinnamon. Taste is sour cherries, vanilla, oak, and some lemon sourness in the finish. Not too sour, but sour enough to carry the sweetness of the cherry notes. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Wowie. Aroma is wonderfully ripe peaches, plum, and tart white grape. Pours a dull red with nice fizzy carbonation, though not much head. Taste follows suit with crisp peaches, white grapes and a hint of candied apple. Mouthfeel is just the perfect balance of tart, sweet and funky. I can’t praise this beer enough.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Pours amber with a thin head mostly dissipating. Nose is yeasty with some fruit aromas. Very creamy with good carbonation. Taste is very tart, of cherries, plums, apples- tart enough to pucker your mouth. Very light hop note on finish. A specialty beer best for summer sipping. Too tart and fruity for my tastes but can be a treat for the right palate.

ICEatALAMO (1305) - Troy, Michigan, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle, ’13 vintage. The pour is a nice rich amber with a full head. The aroma mostly sour with only faint fruit. The taste is big sour upfront, then mellows. Not overly sour which is nice since I am not a huge fan of the style.

reggiedunlop (3675) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a medium tan head. Aroma has good tartness...almost vinegar...damned if it isnt a bit like a pickle...some caramel. Flavor has caramel and lots of oak...very tart...earthy/soury fruit...woody...definitely sour plums. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and soury plums.

Bottle @ home shared by Jake. Amber pour with an off-white head. A touch metallic on the front end. Cider, sour apple, wood, and some caramel. Kind of funky, a touch acetic, maybe some maple. Flavor is sweet up front with a cutting acidity on the finish. Sour apples, grapes, vinegar, and plum? Moderate funk, lots of wood, and caramel.
