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.

This is an affordable wild sour ale that is readily available. What are you all waiting for...go get it!! Pours amber yellow with thin lacing. Aroma is heavy with vinegar and almost stings the nose. Taste is quite sour with a continual ringing on the palate. Acidic flavors bite all the way through this one. Love sour beers and love the fact that a real wild sour has finally made it to the local market at a reasonable price with moderate level of availability.

Bottle, as pictured. Part of a 4-pack that I bought last year. Left it to sit for awhile and it mellowed considerably. Almost tastes like a tart apple flavor on a nice malty beer. Sour brown makes sense for a description.

Bottle, shared by Craig & Mary, thank you! Pours cloudy amber with a ruby red hue, no head. Nice soft peach aroma’s and a kind of buttery impression. The taste is nearly perfectly balanced between sweet fruits and sour and oaky flavours. Lovely!

12oz Bottle. Thanks Andy/Sean! Blossoming lilac and floral display with pungent acids right away and a really breezy, fresh quality. Tart and piquant on the tongue, keeping this sippable. Smooth, complex and an interesting balance of acids, with some sharp, brazen biters and some mellow, smooth sweet talkers. Coconut, plum, and apricot. I think this is quite good, with enough raisiny malt sugar left behind for balance. Reminds me of the old Sour Brown that New Glarus did a long time ago, giving me a nostalgic feel.

slowrunner77 (5977) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Wish lister off the books thanks to Travis: Aroma of oak and all kinds o funky fruit (apple. plum) feel is medium tingly and sour enough to get ya in the jawm just a little. Flavor is awesome. Oaky and funky as all get out while still being refreshing. Nailed another one.

dfroms (289) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours red amber with small head that quickly subsides. Aroma is intensely fruity with some Flemish red notes: raspberry and sour cherry especially. Taste is fairly light bodied and crisp with sour plum, lemon, raspberry, and some herbal vermouth-like complexity and caramel. Excellent.

Säuerlicher, deutlich fruchtiger Antrunk. Karamellig, süß säuerlicher Mittelteil, rund. Die Säuerlichkeit wird schärfer, nett. 10/10/10/10/9/10

355 ml bottle at home. Dark amber-copper color with small white head. Complex aroma, light funky with fruits like cherries and strawberries, also sweet malty caramelish, with maybe vanilla and apple. Sour and sweet taste. Light to medium body, oily, soft carbonation.

Received in a trade from BVery -- Brown sours are probably my least favorite sour, but this was one that I really enjoyed. A well crafted beer, I would definitely drink again.

12-oz, capped and foiled. Thanks, C! You’re far too good to the rest of us. Pours crystal clear bright medium amber with a soft creamy tan head that goes away. Mild balsamic, pie cherry, and strawberry nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Mid palate is a bit of tangy tartness with some fruit notes. Not as crisp and distinct as the R&D sour, but it’s younger. Still nice. Mild grassy finish.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours copper, light cherry and oak, sour, fruity, refreshing.
