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

Ratman197 (10208) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Bottle shared with Croslig and rye726 poured a clear pinkish amber with a lingering ring of pink foam. Aromas of cranberry, barnyard, light leather and vanilla. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of cranberry, vanilla, barnyard and light leather with a smooth lightly funky finish. Tastey brew but would be better with some tartness.

dfroms (349) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle – on Thanksgiving of course. Pours a clear pale orange-pink with no head, almost like a rosé. Aroma is tart strawberries and raspberries, light cranberry, orange, lemon zest, minerals and acidity. Taste is sweet and sour, slightly soda-like, like cranberry Sprite and sour white wine with crushed raspberries and faint oak. Lemon juice and yogurt on the finish. Slight acid burn. Tasty, but quite sweet and lacking the depth of many other New Glarus offerings.

Prufrockstar (1144) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle thanks to homer321, shared at our annual faux-giving. Clear amber ("apple juice") pour with ring of fine bubbles. Aroma goes all out on cranberry. Sweet-tart. Taste is more sweet than tart with underlying funk. Palate: medium body, slick almost syrupy texture, soft carbonation. Overall: a delight, a hit with everybody.

_angst_ (3051) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle received in trade. Pours reddish pink with a small pinkish offwhite head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity and tiny funky with cranberries, lemon juice, dry soil, minerals and hint of barnyard. Taste is sweet, sour and fruity with crackers, cranberries, lemonade, brown sugar, hay, dry soil, minerals and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is tiny dry, tart, astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is slightly sweet, sour and fruity with crackers, lemon juice, cranberries, green apples, hay, dry soil and lemon zest. Tasty nicely balanced cranberry bomb!

islay (1248) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 15, 2014
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 11-10-14. Tart, floral, fruity, funky, mineral, strong aroma. Pours a clear, bright, sparkling pink or dark salmon color. Looks like a rose sparkling wine. Small amount of beige head. Produces some lacing. Very cool appearance. Sour, tart, citric taste features a citrus soda flavor. Quite flavorful. Cranberry and cranberry juice. Very tart. There is a fructose sweetness, but the tartness dominates the sweetness. Red wine-like taste. Herbal finish. Lively and biting in the palate. Light to medium body. Overall, Cran-bic is a really nice beer, another winning fruit beer from New Glarus. It’s not quite as overwhelmingly awesome as the even more fruit-heavy Belgian Red, Raspberry Tart, and Serendipity, but it is still very, very good.
