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

12 ounce bottle courtesy of madvike who was kind enough to send me four of these. Thanks Matt! Once of the most anticipated NG beers for me in a long, long time. Pours a clear pale red color with a thin white head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of cranberries and cherries with notes of coconut and wood. Tart and sweet at the same time. Taste is cherries, cranberries, faint funky notes, oak, vanilla. A faint bit of sugary vinegar if that makes any sense. The funk here is there but its very mild. Good entry level lambic. Insanely drinkable. Good beer.

Huge thanks to canIHAVE. Dark amber pour with a small white head. Aroma up front was the cranberries and quite a bit of funk and what I was thinking was tartness. Flavor was cranberries, cinnamon, oak, caramel, cherries, and chocolate. Finishes sweet but with enough acidity to balance it out. Very interesting twist on fruit beer meets sour ale.

Boutip (5910) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 27, 2010
Bottle: Poured a light reddish color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of tart notes with light sweet cranberry and acidic undertones is very enticing. Taste is a complex mix between some lightly sweet cranberry with some tart notes with a well balanced finish that includes green apple-like acidity and some light funky ester. Even though this beer present great complexity it is still very easily drinkable and very refreshing which I rated very highly. Body is about average with great carbonation. An excellent beer from a brewer that consistently amaze me.

sloth (2809) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Pours a thin tan head, decent retention with minimal lace. Clear amber red hued brew. Nicely tart nose, cranberries, cherries, woody spicey notes. Body is lightly medium with a nice effervescence, lightly tart and prickly. Nice berry cherry flavor, hint of cinnamon, wood and a light earthyness,sour apples, maybe a tad funky also. Sweet tart finish, fruity and juicey with a light mustiness. Interesting brew. Props to my friend motortoddhead for this one!

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 25, 2010
I remember having this at GABF this year and not being overly ecstatic...and here I am again, not overly into this beer. Pours a rosey amber, thin head, nose was cranberry sweet with malty undertones and not much else. Flavors are on the sweet side with the cranberry notes coming through fairly evident yet simple...I just find it a bit too sweet, too simple with not much complexity to ponder..but, its clean and its good for what its trying to be i suppose.

Thanks to FlandersNed for this great brew!! It pours crystal clear with an amazing orange/pinky color. Great tart/sweet cranberry flavor, excellent on the palate, all in all, in my opinion, this is a great brew.

drewbeerme (3916) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2010
12oz bottle, thanks to 17thfloor! Pours red and slightly hazed with small white head around the rim. Nose is loaded with fresh cranberries, just like at thanksgiving dinner, brown sugar in the background. Flavor has tar cranberries, sweet cane and brown sugar, and plum with a mild earthy-funk finish. Spritzy carbonation, syrupy body. New glarus is clearly the king of fruit beers (as if we didn’t know).

Chitown RB gathering Jan 2010: bottle shared by Vince (beernbourbon), many thanks!

Deep amber with some reddish highlights, light head and good lace. The aroma has notes of cranberry, flowery and barnyardy esters, some sugar, woody and earthy. The taste is too sweet for the lambic genre but fine for a fruit beer. Very fruity, grainy and a bit toasty. The mouth feel is medium-bodied, soft and touch chalky. Okay but then I was not honestly expecting much from this beer. Perhaps time will change this brew, lets see what it is like in two or three years.
