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

A very straightforward but tasty lambic. Not a lot of complexity and a bit thin on the tongue, but wonderful flavor. Tart without being overpowering, the beer should be easily approachable by non-sour drinkers.

Bottle shared by beernbourbon at the ratebeer chicagoland tasting. Thanks Vince! Pours a pinkish red color with a small offwhite head. smells like a 80% cherry or cranberry lambic 20% belgian red. tastes like 80 % belgian red 20% cherry/ cranberry fruit lambic. Sticky mouthfeel. This definitely wasn’t bad, but if you are expecting cantillon like acidity you will be let down. Basically, It was dissapointing how sweet this was. It wass good though, especially if you like fruit beers.

Beautiful red color. Excellent beer. Quite a bit of hay and barn in the aroma and flavor, tart but not all that sour. Really excellent balance though. Dry, but not super dry. Cranberries are awesome in this.

Bottle thanks to Sam Pours out a light pinkish looks kind of like wisky topped with no head. Aroma was very nice. Lots of berries, vanilla, and sweetness. Taste more of the berries and sweetness. Just the right amount of tart very tasty.

Bottle. Pours a very clear almost orange-amber. Very nice looking brew. Another fantastic fruit beer from New Glarus.

Sampled at the January 09 Metro Detroit tasting. Thanks to whoever brought this! Poured a clear light red with an orange tint. The head was off-white. Aroma had a bit of cranberry and a lot of tartness. Flavor started sweet with a bit of cranberry, the cranberry became more tart throughout for a nice finish.

Crushed with Honkeybra at GABF. What is it your period? Not much to say about this. New Glarus makes the best fruit beers in the world and this one is stellar as well.

No other brewery makes fruit lambics quite like New Glarus. Pours a bright orange colour with lots of spritz, but no head. Aroma was fruity, very floral and cranberry filled with hints of oak and earth. Taste was tart, very fruitforward and incredibly tastey. It was hard to stop sipping it. Wicked tasty. Remembering the ’77 Dead Cornell shows for my 1977 beer review."

PilsnerPeter (3037) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Bottle shared at puzzl’s New Year’s Eve 2009: Blush colored pour with an off white head. Oaky aroma with some sweet, candied cranberry notes, though it’s not over the top sweet. Slick body with a mild tart fruitiness. There’s a soft candied presence from the cranberries. A tad thin and one dimensional. Falls very short of their Raspberry Tart and Belgian Red.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Bottle. Poured light red with a medium white head leaving spotty lacing. Nose is cranberry, wood, and light funk. Medium body with a clean mouth feel and fizzy carbonation. Taste is fairly sweet, pale malt up front which quickly gives way to some tart, oaky, cranberry and cherry notes. Finishes with medium tartness. New Glarus sure knows how to make a fruit beer. Very good.
