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.

keanex (1484) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Bottled June 27, 2013 (~5 months old).
Appearance: The body has a velvety haze with a dark red brick color. The head is short without much retention, but it settles into a soft yet dense light tan coating. A creamy ring is left on the edges.
Aroma: The aroma is pungent with a dill pickle aroma, some cherry surfaces with a wood backing, but I get dill pickle all the way and itís making my mouth water.
Taste: This is balanced much better than the aroma indicates. The intro is mildly sweet even with some cherry and caramel noted. Caramel is the base during the mid-taste as the vinegar picks up, tasting like dill pickle juice with a strong earthy wood backing. The finish is strong dill pickle which lingers a moment on the tongue.
Palate: Full bodied with mild carbonation.
Overall: This is a beer unlike any Iíve had yet, Iíve never had a beer with such a strong dill juice flavor. Itís odd, but enjoyable. I donít know the pricing on this, but I would keep a few of these in stock at my house at all times if I could get it here.

Bottle at Dadsgiving! Pours a clear brown with a thin to medium sized beige head. Sour fruity acid on the nose, tart and malty. Medium-bodied, soft tartness with some acidity and gentle fruit. Tangy and fruity on the finish, lingering light acidity and tartness. Quite tasty.

Bottle. Apple, plum, vinegar, vanilla, oak and caramel malt aroma - great complexity. Amber with minimal head. Sweet plum, balsamic vinegar and toffee malt flavor. Great blending of sweet and tart. Another New Glarus work of art.

douglas88 (6149) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a reddish brown color with a medium white head. A light nose of sour woody notes. The flavor is caramel, cherries, brown malt, big sourness but not acidic, sweeter lambic elements. Very drinkable and spot on for the style, slightly more tart than normal perhaps. Great.

Bottle shared by jack at our thanksgiving bottle share. Light orange amber with a thin white head. Nose is light balsamic, tart cherry, oak, light leather and hay. Flavor is nicely balanced for the style; similar notes to the nose. Easy drinking sour. Nice stuff, as expected, from Dan and Deb.

Experiment_Ale (1033) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2013
At my place with Taylor. Se is not as excited about it as I would have though. Se doesnít think there is enough fruit in it. I think she really doesnít like it because it is not sweet enough. I like it because itis more dry than the regular new glares offerings. Pours rose with a little brown. Light lacing. Aroma is apple, sweet strawberry, light lime. Taste is strawberry, tang, kiwi, mango. Kinda sweet, but not as sweet as most of the new glares beers. Mouthfeel, a little watery. Finish is short and sweet.

Bottle courtesy of nuplastikk, thank you sir! Hazy amber color, fluffy tan head. Aroma of sweet and sour plums and prunes, dusty black pepper. Taste is softly sour plums, cherries, light vanilla. Delicious.
