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.

Sampled at esbls. Hazed amber with a beige ring. A funky wild aroma. A funky flavor but it is gentler than the nose would suggest. Wood flavor with complex fruit. Cherry, dark fruit, and lots of subtlety. Bark, etc. Quite nice.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled, courtesy Narnad. Brown red in color, clear, with a very thin, bubbly white head. Heavily sour nose with notes of white grape juice, sour cherry and light balsamic vinegar. Lightly sour flavor that slowly grows in intensity, bringing flavors of lemon, soft cheese, worn leather and grapefruit rind. Finish has a bit of residual sweetness , almost like maraschino cherry, but not nearly as sugary. Fine carbonation with a bit of stickiness. Super drinkable and complex at the same time. Superb.

12 oz bottle into wine glass. Park rapids, mn
Ruby in color, small rim of head. Aroma is tart, fruit, a little vinegar. Reminds me a lot if serendipity. Taste is tart. Playmate in medium body with lively carbonation. Overall this beer is classic new Glarus. Reminds me a lot of their other fruit beers. Nicely done.

Bottle shared by DrewFace. Nose is lightly tart with fresh cut herbs. Lightly malty overall with a bit of sour. As it warms it gets worse. Reveals a vegetal and earthy. Meh.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Acidic and faint rhubarb-like fruitiness, mild malty sweetness, and a sharp and tart finish. Pretty good.

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!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.
