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.

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.

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.
