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 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!

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.

PapaSkeetSkeet (918) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 5, 2014
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.

emacgee (4175) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2014
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.

Kbuddddddd. Smellz excenetky, light lemony vinegar light leather, very airy, floral notes as it sat, cedar because I read it, gummy worms. Taste like gummy worms that I bought for gingerbread houses last month, lemon, a very sneaky sweetness, flowers, almost honey. Very good.

Ferris (5237) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle - Sour, grassy and lots of herbs. Clear copper with a thin beige head. Berries and crisp herbs, mint and basil? Brilliant and fun to drink. Why would anyone want another fruit beer.

Another awesome beer thanks to Mike.A nice balanced mild sour brown. Great berry aroma and a rustic wild blackberry flavor but mild fruit tones. The sour and fruit go in and out. Clean palate. Crystal clear amber color. Tasty!

Drake (9257) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle shared at the 8th Richmond Industry Gathering, 12/1/13. Pours a hazy amber color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grapes, pale malt, citrus, earth, mild funk. The taste is tart fruits… citrus, tropical, cherries… mild funk. Medium bodied, low carbonation, bright. Nice beer.
