Sampled at DLD 2014. It poured a dark red color with a white head. The aroma was of wood, caramel, hints of toffee, slight green apple, funk and some oak. The taste was of caramel, oak, slight earth, hints of lemon, bread, slight lactic, finishing fairly balanced, with some bitter, sweet and sour notes. Good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy, lighter red-brown, small tan head. Sour berry, vanilla, honey, oak. Quite sour, some bitterness, almost no sweetness or maltiness. Very acidic, effervescent, fairly high carbonation, medium body, some oiliness. Long dry finish. Excellent beer, ranks up with some of the best American wild ales.

Bottle @ The Lets do a Chris O tasting. Pours copper with a thin tan head. Big sour lemon nose that really invites you in. Unfortunately the sourness dissipates quite quickly in the mouth and you are just left with a medicinal taste.

Bottle from Tim - thanks! Murky brown pour with no head. Sharp tart and darekr fruit with green apple and sour in the aroma. Taste is not as tart as the aroma suggests but has some bite with a nice balancing fruit sweetness. Clean mouthfeel. I like it!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle care of Steasy66 (Ryan). Colour is a light reddish amber chestnut brown, white head. Nose is a lot of horse blanket, umeboshi sour Japanese plums, autumn leaves, tart sour yeast, slight caramel malt, balsamic vinegar, brown malt vinegar. Taste is tart sour, umeboshi sour Japanese plums, balsamic vinegar, lots of horse blanket funkiness. I hear from some people that American sours lack funkiness, but not this one. Itís a really rustic full flavoured brown sour, with malt vinegar notes. At first itís not an easy beer to drink, but really grows on the palate.

A truly spectacular sour ale. Wisco needs to see more of this from the breweries in the great beer state. Like always, expect Dan to lead the charge.

Bottle. Pours to a red-hued amber body with an off-white head. The aroma is cedary sour malts with caramel and twang. The flavor is deeply caramelized underneath all that delicious sourness and cedar. White grapes and funky yeasts. But clean. The beer is a fantastic one by New Glarus. Kinda like their own rendition of the Duchess. But definitely cleaner, and not metallic.
