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.

Bottle courtesy of Tooch4321. Cheers, Adam! Pours a hazy brownwith red highlights and an off-white head. Nose is dark malt, caramel, tart fruit, some general tartness, earth, and some funk. Flavor is similar with notes of citrus, some fruit, tartness, tart plums, some funk, some earth, and some wood. Medium in body and an outstanding American Sour.

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 (235) - 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.

GreatDane1632 (363) - Louisiana, USA - JUN 28, 2014
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.

after4ever (6114) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUN 7, 2014
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.

Westmeister (1738) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle or 2 shared by Donnie @ Ale Alpharetta. Hazed amber color,tan head. Aroma is soft sweet fruits (plums, cherries). Taste is the classic integration of sweet yet soft fruits into a beer. Not a classic red/brown, but medium to light tart cherries, plums, slight woody aspect, vanilla. Absolutley amazing.

Bottle courtesy of "hannont". Colour...light amber with no head. Nose...quite funky and fruity with hints of caramel. Palate...lightly tart and somewhat fruity with hints of yeast and funk, but also metallic bits too. I was rather interested until the metal hit.
