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.

All I;ll say is I had it on draft and fuck it. Its fucking good, I know people don’t want to give too much hype to this brew but its sour, acidic, tons of oak, really a prototypical flanders. It flat out rocks.

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.

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.

Westmeister (1732) - 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.

mcberko (6306) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
12 oz. bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a dirty, opaque dark brown with an amber tinge and a small white head. Nose brings out all sorts of tart dark fruits, oak, and a caramel sweetness poking through. Flavour is a balance between sweet and sour if there ever was one, starting with the tart dark fruits, transitioning to caramel malts, and finishing off quite balanced. The oak quality rounds everything off. Unusual sour - usually these sweet & sour beers are really off-putting, but this is quite complex. Very good beer.
