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.

Boutip (5737) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 29, 2016
Bottle: Poured a reddish color ale with a medium size off-white foamy head with OK retention and light lacing notes. Aroma of vinous notes with some oak and sour notes also perceptible. Taste is a nice mix between some vinous notes with some oak and tart notes. Some light residual sugar notes can also be detected. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Good sour that is closer to a Flander Red that a wild ale. A bit overrated in my opinion.

Very tasty. Pretty sweet though. Almost so sweet it is over baring to the rest of it.

Bottle, from a non-ratebeerian trade. Thanks Mary! Poured into Trillium glass, drunk at home, 14th November 2015, Danko pre-baby born bash evening one. Looks like dark cherries complimenting dark malts. Lacing diminishes. Lovely farmyard funk barnyard aroma, wood resin, sweet ripe cherries. Taste is cherries, soft malts, treacle, acid, funk, wood resin, sweet malts, puckering sourness. It’s aged nicely and is a great way to start a special event. - Note the microbes are a bit too prominent for me and I don’t like that as much.

Bottle. Dirty mahogany with a beige head that mostly fades. Slightly sour strawberries, grapefruit, wheat, tart cherries, slightly musky, apple skin, moderate carbonation and body, tart with a light funk, dries out on the palate as things finish up.
