4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
The hue is slightly lighter than a traditional sour brown ale, but having said that, this is the most pleasant sour I’ve ever tasted. It was bottled in 12 oz 4-packs for around $8, and I bought out most of SE Wisconsin’s supply. It only sold for a month in the summer of ’13 but I have a nice supply. Salud!

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Me loves this style. My buddy Sloth is a good one, still looks after me now and then with a surprise like this. What a guy, and thanks, Bert! Pours an orangey short of copper color, fairly clear body, thin shortly sustained head, no lacing. Aroma is tart apples and cherries, oak/cedar, faint vinous or almost acetic elements. Flavor follows suit, firm tart fruits, Flemish sour true, acidity is substantial and leaves the finish squeaky clean, citric notes lingering behind the tartness. Body is moderate to full for the style, A very nice job by the folks up there in WI!

Bottle via Sloth ages ago. This fridge lurker was finally shared with the beernut! Hooray! Bright and fruity, not too sour. mostly in finish. Very easy to consume. Nose was more biting than body.

Courtesy of ElGaucho. I simply love new glarus. Solid sour with a fruity sour nose but not much tartness since the oak takes over bigtime.

Bottle. Very sour lemon aroma. Yeasty as well. Slightly hazy dark amber. Thin off white head. Lemony and sour flavor with some sweetness. Sour but not tart. Oak subdues it a bit. Really excellent.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The color of bright, light maple syrup with only a few bubbles at the edges of the glass. We can’t tell if it’s filtered or not. Aroma is a rather tart pineapple, passion fruit, guava, some citrus. Delicious, almost like a fruit juice blend. Body is light with a moderate carbonation, soft and blanketing the palate. Flavor is tons of fruit juice (above mentioned varieties) with small and delicate caramel and maybe some bit of lemongrass and rind. Expertly brewed - we can’t even figure out how we’d go about approaching (brewing) this. The flavor profile is so clean for a wild. Delicious and addicting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a soft orange with a reddish hue and one finger of tight foamy head. The nose shows notes of cedar wood, pink grapefruit juice, mint, and light sweet esters. Very intense flavor, bursting with notes of pink grapefruit and overripe mandarin orange flesh. Almost overwhelmingly acidic with sharp woody notes and the lightest touch of buttered popcorn all buried under extremely upfront citrus flesh. Very light bodied and dry with a bracing acidity and dry woody tannic quality.
