Bottle. Apple, plum, vinegar, vanilla, oak and caramel malt aroma - great complexity. Amber with minimal head. Sweet plum, balsamic vinegar and toffee malt flavor. Great blending of sweet and tart. Another New Glarus work of art.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a reddish brown color with a medium white head. A light nose of sour woody notes. The flavor is caramel, cherries, brown malt, big sourness but not acidic, sweeter lambic elements. Very drinkable and spot on for the style, slightly more tart than normal perhaps. Great.

Bottle shared by jack at our thanksgiving bottle share. Light orange amber with a thin white head. Nose is light balsamic, tart cherry, oak, light leather and hay. Flavor is nicely balanced for the style; similar notes to the nose.
Easy drinking sour. Nice stuff, as expected, from Dan and Deb.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
At my place with Taylor. Se is not as excited about it as I would have though. Se doesn’t think there is enough fruit in it. I think she really doesn’t like it because it is not sweet enough. I like it because itis more dry than the regular new glares offerings.
Pours rose with a little brown. Light lacing. Aroma is apple, sweet strawberry, light lime. Taste is strawberry, tang, kiwi, mango. Kinda sweet, but not as sweet as most of the new glares beers. Mouthfeel, a little watery. Finish is short and sweet.
