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.

Bottle shared with northropfrye. Starts out with a sour taste which moves quickly to umami finishing with toffee flavours. Certainly a unique and delicious sipping beer.

Thanks Brian for this one. Tart and vinous aroma, a bit of lactose, plums or prunes on the nose, definitely caramel as the description mentions. Dark reddish brown body and some white head. Taste is quite tart at first but fades quickly. Nice sour ale.

Damn good sour, put the in your pipe and smoke it, Mr. Powers. Even of you are not a fan of the sour, you will most likely enjoy this gem of a beer. BTW, Tricia Mackie can eat bowl of dick up. Thanks DrSilverworm for sharing.

12oz bottle pours dark ruby blood red with 2 finger head. Nose is funky fruity cherry and tart musty fruit. Taste is funky tart dark cherry, berry, molasses, vanilla, apple, dank wood. Finish is tart complex semi-sweet berry and oak. Fantastic.

Color is light caramel. Not much going on in the aroma other than some lactic sour smells. Light and effervescent, slight funk, moderate sour. I wish this had more depth and complexity, and some malty sweetness to it. Not bad.

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!

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.

Bottle from trade, thanks Bacterial! Pours oxidation brown with reddish tinge. Strong aroma with blackberry, vinegar, wet earth. Flavor is lemon, blackberry, sour. Hints of blueberry and raspberry as well. Very fruity, quite sour. Really nice!
