COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Some people paint, some sing, others write… I brew". -Daniel Carey A few times a year we will cut Dan loose to brew whatever he chooses, uncensored, uncut, unplugged. Always handcrafted, the bottle you hold is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again. Sparkling and bright this is a Wisconsin original created for you in the traditional method employed by the Lambic Brewers of Belgium including five months of outdoor resting in oak barrels. Indigenous yeast and cranberries from the “wilds” of Wisconsin flawlessly pair to dance on your palette. You have discovered a rare and delightful treasure to be served cold in a fluted glass. Thanks for supporting the arts, Daniel and Deb Carey

UDBeernut (1720) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle from puddintane. Pours hazy tan amber capped by an off white head. Nose of funk, cranberries and spice. Taste starts slightly puckering with hints of yeast and cranberries. Body is light, fizzy, and easy to consume in mass. My wife asked where this was from. She said she would be down for a trip. We shall see.

Westmeister (1754) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours an unclear dark orange with no head. Smell is sweet and tart berries (maybe cranberry only bc it was already suggested in the title), hint of vanilla, oak. Taste is tart cranberries, oak, sweet, caramel/vanilla undertones, funk. Straight up good.

Lemke10 (793) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a red orange color with a slight head to it that disappears rather quickly. Scent is mild with cranberries being the most obvious as well as yeast. Almost has the same scent as a cranberry wine! The taste of berries explode as they hit your tongue. Very strong in cranberry with some wheat and yeasts in the mix. A surprising sweet taste and yet it is just right. Not too strong and not too weak. Texture is just slightly bubbly otherwise nicely flat that brings that unique aspect to the table. Definitely something interesting to try for eclectic beer lovers!

Marheb (2049) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2013
Arôme intéressante de sirop fruité avec une touche d’acidité qui augure bien. En bouche, un sirop de canneberges très sucré mais comme l’arôme présageait, un fini acide. La sécheresse est à point mais les sucres restent trop longtemps à mon goût.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 29, 2012
This bottled brew from rbsg #20 poured a small sized head of frothy white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light brown colored body. The mild aroma was malty and cranberry. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The sour flavor contained notes of cranberry and mild citrus.

Elwood (3176) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle via the CheesedMan. Thanks Daniel! It pours a hazy, deep amber color with a fleeting, light tan head. The nose is a musty mix of tart cranberries and earth. The flavor has a little up front sweetness, but that’s quickly balanced by a nice tart cellar character. Lots of flavors going on with this one. Sweat, lemon, cranberry, mineral notes, and funk. Light to medium body with lively carbonation and a lingering finish. Great brew.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2012
I think I got this from Janderson91 (I think). This was just as surprisingly good as the Enigma I had prior. Light, clear orange color, decent wispy head and some lacing up the sides of the wine glass (I’m a connoisseur after all). Smells like a great wild ale, woody sort of, funk, fruit, easily distinguished from a true lambic but still impressive. Taste was even better, funk, sour, barrel, wood, just really tasty. I need more of this for sure. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-12-2011 03:28:33

Martinus (2818) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2012
Slightly hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of fruit, candy, cranberry, sugar and spicy notes. Light sweet flavour, light sour touch, somewhat funky, cranberry and red berries. Sour fruity finish, apple and cranberry.
It still feels very fresh, even though it is an aged bottle. Nice and pleasant, not feeling like a lambic (it doesn’t need to be) but a fine sour ale.
(1234, I do like Feist. From 33cL bottle shared @ ZZT V. Thumbprint series. Obtained through trade with atxdelivery. Thanks!!)

weihenweizen (1733) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Refrigerated 12 oz. bottle from FlandersNed poured into a white wine glass. Pours translucent amber with red hue. Little lacing, medium body, low carbonation, and light cranberry aroma and some oak. Taste is nice tart cranberry. I bet this would be even better fresher.
