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

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.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2010
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 (3029) - 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.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Bottle. Lots of cranberry with only soft notes of funk and yeast. Tartness levels seemed to be due to the nature of the cranberry not the beer. It was good, just a lot of cranberry for me to handle.

hopscotch (10077) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2010
Bottle… Clear amber ale with a fizzy, white head. Funky, fruity aroma. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. Tart, fruity flavor – fuzzy fruit and berries. Sweet/tart finish. Bottle courtesy of smith4498!

Thanks Santa! Pours looking like cherry 7-up with only a wisp of a slightly pink head. A bunch of oakis the first thing I notice in the nose: rich round caramels, vanilla, honey. While I wouldn’t necessarily know the fruit here was cranberry it still smells damn good. To me it seems more like a combination between cherries & strawberries. There is a bit of tartness, but less than I expected - it is along the level of tartness that is found in their Belgian Red and Raspberry Tart. When it hits my tongue I get more of that big oakey hit which quickly gives way to a slightly tart cherry, strawberry and red grape rush. The tartness is a bit more pronounced here, and definitely recognizable as being sourced from cranberries. The oak, tartness and sweeter fruit notes all mingle perfectly, creating a beverage that is as hard to pin down as NG’s other fruit beers. That of tannic zing that cranberries have comes out a bit in the finish, along with continuing fruit juice notes. This is amazing stuff, and certainly in the same league as the Belgian Red & Raspberry Tart. Carbonation is light but that works wonderfully here, leaving a really nice fruity finish.

Huge thanks to bman1113vr for sharing this bottle. Copper clear pour with a small white head. Aroma is sour, tart, oak, brett and cranberry. Flavor is lightly tart, slight cranberry, funk and a hint of yeastiness.

DalzAle (2010) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle. Very clear light strawberry colored pour with light lacing and little carbonation and a sour/fruity aroma. Flavor is forward on the cranberry, raspberry and finished sweet and sour on the finish. Very good, I wish there had been more bottles of this at Casanova’s today!
