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.

Bottled. Poured clear, fiery orange with a tall, sticky beige head.. surprisingly lively for the style. The aroma picked up sour cherries, vinegar, and oak, with more fruits emerging as it warmed up.. lots of funky interesting-ness going on, yet it felt controlled.. really nice! The flavor found moderate-plus cherry and oak sourness over soft, supportive, mostly fruity notes.. finished with cherry skins, dusty leather, and light vinegar. Medium-bodied with fairly full carbonation on the palate.. smooth across the middle.. moderate overall sourness.. this was really good.

Bottle from Tosa Wine and Spirits brought to the Mom-without-Bill tasting. Aroma is complex with multiple fruit flavors. Tasting suggestions included cranberries, cherries, rhubarb, strawberries, sour apples and mulberries. All in the sour line. Flavor is quite sour and strong, with layers - and malty oak underneath. Perhaps would take the edge away with more aging. Very complex.

Lemke10 (870) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 20, 2013
This pours a clear yet dark amber color with a fizzy head. The aroma is very tart with candied fruits and sugars. The taste is sweet and fizzy in the beginning but finishes rather tart and sour. There are lots of hints of sour apple and oak in this one. Very interesting and different.

12 oz. Bottle. Pours a deep orange color with a thin light head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sour, citrus, Apple and Cherry. Very sour, this one made my lower jaw tingle. I liked it a lot and will savor the remaining few bottles I have left.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Pours a dirty golden color. There is a small fizzy head that fades real quick. Aroma is tart cherry, oak, and barnyard funk. Mouthfeel is smooth and finishes a bit dry. Taste is a great balance of tart fruit, light lambic sourness, and a hint of funk. Extremely drinkable and a bit lighter and brighter version of the Sour Brown Ale.

Pailhead (5450) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of cherries, citrus, sour lemon, and just a touch of must. It pours a transparent amber with a small beige head that quicly fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet/sour cherry. The finish has moderate sour lemon, light sour orange, and a touch of oak. Itís medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a very tasty and refreshing sour. I could drink a ton of this.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 19, 2013
12oz bottle: Pours a clear deep bronze amber with a thin-lacing effervescent froth of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet pale crystal malty nose with notes of black currants and strawberry jam along with fresh vinous oak. Starts with good carbonation and fiullness with a good amount of malty sweetness, fruity character and a nice puckering balance with a drier, lingering oaky finish. True to style and enjoyable. This should age well, but tastes just fine now.

beerbaaron (1609) - Arizona, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Cloudy, dark reddish brown. Small foamy head, wispy lasting. Aroma is sour, sweet/tart, fruity, cranberry, cherry, green apple, touch of caramel, slightly funky/woody, and very íroundedí. Medium body. Almost fizzy. A good zip to it but it softens up and is very approachable. Sour, sweet/tart, just a little oaky drynes - really lights up the palate. Great balance. Worthy of praise.
