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

Appearance: Pours a rose pint with a small white head. The body is clear. Aroma: Raspberry, cranberry and ever so slight funk. Taste: Cranberry, raspberry, brown sugar, lemon and some industrial yeast notes. Mouthfeel: Fizzy and puckering. Overall: Unbelievably awesome. I hope this is made again, and I’d love to see it in the 750ml bottle like Wisconsin Red.

12 oz bottle from Chicone’s. Reddish/amber pour with no head. Fruity, somewhat sour aroma with a sweet/tart cranberry flavor. Reminds me of champagne. Sweet finish.

badgerben (4401) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Clear, dark red color with a very small and fizzy head. Strong malt aroma, with a lot of dried cranberries. Some wheat. The sweet malt base is very delicious, quite complex. Caramel. Tart cranberries with a few touches of sour. After warming up, an old French oak character comes out with a bit of vanilla. This one flippin rocks.

So pretty! Pink-red-yellow clarity. And delicious! Sweet and sour and bubbly-light on the tongue with slight funk, some lemon, a bit of cran bitterness. Plus some deep woodiness.

beerbill (3413) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2009
12 oz. bottle from tjthresh as part of the NP10v4. Pours a clear cranberry red with a thin white head slightly tinted pink. There is a stream of tiny bubbles continuously rising to the surface. This beer really looks beautiful in the glass. Very pleasant aroma of cranberry along with some mild oak and just a bit of funk. The flavor is both tart and sweet with cranberry, a bit of lemon, mild oak and just a bit of funk. Bright and lively on the palate. Simply put, this beer is a delight.

(bottle) Pours light brownish-red with a white head and good lacing. Aroma is slightly musty, but when swirled more of the tart and sweet cranberry is displayed. A little bit of oak and vanilla is present as well, but not too complex on the nose. Taste is very good, with a nice balance between sweet and tart, a lot of cranberry flavor and lemon zest, which yields to a subtle oak and earthy undertone on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium and the carbonation is lively. Not terribly complex, but it’s very drinkable and tasty nonetheless.

aroma is stench of tart cranberries and gigantic wood. appearance is wonderfully translucent light red bordering on regular old amber. flavor is a blast of wood and cranberry simultaneously, so that no pure ocean spray style juice flavor ever shows its face alone. hit of sourness and funk appears in the aftertaste, subtle and fleeting. wood muck lingers for a good while must to my enjoyment. no cloying fruit sweetness, no overwhelming fruit character or ’fruit juice’ type of approach. big big wood and just a classy hit of sourness.

12 oz bottle from Roy’s Market (New Glarus, WI). Pours a bit of a reddish gold, tinged with the brighter berry touch, really quitw taken by the hue, very faint haze, well carbonated, decent white head that dies to a small film, clings to the edges. Aromas are some nice wet wood, tart cranberries, dry oak, a touch of champagne and light malty sweetness. A touch of vanilla, faint spice, the cranberry comes in a bit, tart yet mildly sweet. Initial is a wonderful balance of cranberry and lighter grainy sweetness, a touch of honey and vanilla, almost yogurt with a nice light sourness, subtle and smooth, moving into an enjoyable tartness that sticks to the palate, good carbonation on the palate, sourness grows a bit as I get further in, but it certainly is balanced with good sweetness, as cranberry really makes the nature of this beer, tart and sweet in harmony. Dry, a touch prickly. I liked this, but interested to see what kind of dying out of the fruit and dryness this beer might get with age. Very nice, a subtle sour fruit beer, more delicate but layered flavors.
