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.

joeneugs (3328) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 20, 2013
12 oz. bottle. It pours a nice deep red color with a fizzy off white head. The aroma is very nice with some balsamic, cherry, oak, light funk and some background cherry syrup. The flavor is the same. Very well balanced with good cherry and malt character with some balsamic and leathery funk. Perfect amount of sour and a touch of vinegar that’s appropriate for the style. Mouth puckering and fun to drink. Loved this one.

Bottle from Dak and Tim, thanks gents! Burgundy pour, aroma of mild sour cherries, taste is a mild hit of sourmess and some cherries followed by some vinous sweetmess (much like the aroma) reminds me of the regular rodenbach which like this isn’t overly complex but that’s not a bad thing. This is a sit outside and drink a whole glass kind on a nice hot day kind of drink..needless to say its refreshing as all get up just like everything else I’ve had from these guys.

12oz bottle via trade. Poured a medium density orangey/brown with a small foamy beige head. Aroma is sour and tart, notes of cherry skin, lemon and funky fruit. Flavor is sour, touch of wet wood and grains, lemons, cherry juice and sour fruit. Really good stuff.

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2013
12oz bottle. Thanks to nuplastikk / FlandersNed. Mostly hazy brownish red color. Great one-finger thick khaki head with great retention. Leaves decent, thicker, somewhat loose ropes of lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick texture. Nice cherry, lightly lactic cremey character, wood, caramel.. Seeing the green plum. Something very satisfyingly rich about the aroma in this, light sweet though, and good tart sour finish.

BMMillsy (1434) - Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2013 Bottle courtesy of Tim. Thanks! Pours into my tulip glass a somewhat opaque amber color that clears up as it settles with a full one finger off white head that quickly receds. Aroma of sour vinegar, cherries, lots of fresh apples, berries, oak, some brown sugar. Flavor is big time sour, cherry is there, white vinegar, light malt presence and brown sugar, then finishes with a lingering distinct apple flavor left on the palate, very acidic and a punch in the face with sour. Easy drinking, plenty of carbonation, low to medium dry, but also worth slowly sipping if you like. Very nice brew, though I think I liked Enigma slightly better--but the difference between the two is very nuanced from what I can tell.

Brown, off-white head. Nose is the typical crayon box and fresh fruit you get in New Glarus fruit beers with a touch of vinegar. Taste is tart fruit and apple cider vinegar, apple juice. Lingering tart finish. Light carbonation, creamy silky mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle shared with AJ in NH. Cheers! Pours clear, deep gold with a creamy, off-white head. The nose holds light herbs, berries and tropical fruits. Medium sweet flavor with good, sturdy tang, some pineapple, mango. Refreshing. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Clean in the finish with moderate tangy bite, more tropical fruits and berries. Very nice. (3.8)
