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.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle: Weathered & dingy copper color with decent clarity, topped with a musky, gray-tinted head that fades quickly, leaving a tiny collar behind. Aroma includes delicate, sour cherries, drying & slightly spicy oak, faint lacto sourness, moderately vinous red grapes, hints of bramble berries, acidic lemon flesh, cherry skin, & small touch of funky, musty wood on the back-end. Vibrant, fresh, & lovely tart flavor with each sip. Sour apples, tart cherries, acidic grapes, brushed with a mild coating of lactic acid & finished with sharp lemon tartness. Peripheral notes of red wine soaked oak, faint vanilla, toasted malts, a kiss of cinnamon & allspice, modest toffee, & a perfect finishing dryness. One of the best things about this brew is its ability to rub out that sour hard-on you might have, while retaining superior drinkability by delicately playing footsies with the line of "too acidic, too sour" but never fully crossing over. Grows more vinous & oaky as it warms, lovely dry fruit skin & vanillin finish. This shit is so good.

SlovakSniper (5091) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2015
Belle présence des fruits. Chêne qui fait le style. Touche de yaourt tourné. Framboises et cerises dans une moindre mesure. Malts présentés. Caramel suret. Framboises molles. Vieille pomme en bouche. Bois tartiné de ketchup. Vinaigre de framboises. Touche douce. Bouche un peu molle. Bon corps. Finale comme un vin aigre fruité dans lequel s’évapore une petite cuillère de sucre. Agréable et facile à boire.

rodenbach99 (4210) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2015
Une petite bouteille partagée par Patrick. Un liquide doré très foncé avec une mousse beige. Un premier nez sauvage avec du caramel. Une bouche agréable, pas trop acide, caramel, cerises. Une finale acido-sucrée parfaite. Facile à boire.

thomashall (674) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Sample tasted at Casanova Liquors. Pours amber brown with minimal head. Smell is strong sour vinegar with some grape wine. Taste is nice and tart with clean fruity finish. Really like this one. New Glarus needs to put out more sours!

sebletitje (9313) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2015
Bouteille 335ml via IP trade thanks to Jeff - Bacterial. Cuivrée, col épais crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme est lactique sur un bouquet sucré-caramel, rétro de boisé - cèdre? qui n’est pas forcément facile à noter. Palais est aigrelet note fruité rouge-noire avec un fini levure sauvage lacto et une petite note de sucre brun - rappel de Sherry, Port avec un léger boisé de chêne.

Strykzone (6722) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Sampled at esbls. Hazed amber with a beige ring. A funky wild aroma. A funky flavor but it is gentler than the nose would suggest. Wood flavor with complex fruit. Cherry, dark fruit, and lots of subtlety. Bark, etc. Quite nice.

JMerritt (1941) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottled, courtesy Narnad. Brown red in color, clear, with a very thin, bubbly white head. Heavily sour nose with notes of white grape juice, sour cherry and light balsamic vinegar. Lightly sour flavor that slowly grows in intensity, bringing flavors of lemon, soft cheese, worn leather and grapefruit rind. Finish has a bit of residual sweetness , almost like maraschino cherry, but not nearly as sugary. Fine carbonation with a bit of stickiness. Super drinkable and complex at the same time. Superb.
