Orange pour. Funky nose, lemon, very similar to a gueuze. Taste is citrus, funk, tart lemon. Medium mouthfeel. Marsiblursi (3083) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2014
(Bottle) Pours orange amber with almost no head. Thea aroma holds fantastic funk - damp basement, ripe red and yellow apples, spicy mold, old wood and a touch of pineapples and incense. Undertones of woodshop-ish white oak and cracker-like malt. bit cheesy. The flavour is near dry, almost no bitterness and medium sour (for the style). Funk (brett and lacto), fruit/citrus and dry malt. The mouthfeel is crisp, tight and perfect fizzy with medium carbonation. Light to medium bodied. _angst_ (5008) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2014

Bottle: Orangish straw, slight haze, thin whispy white head, little lacing. Big sour funk nose, fairly assertive. Pow, biggens right up front, fades a bit quickly leaving a try tartness. Very clean, lower carbonation than others. Simple yet spot on. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Not as dry or tart as others, especially midway through and onward, but it has a great nose and a great first punch. Easy drinking clean Sour Ale. Thanks a ton Bob!

Bottle, thanks to Bacterial! Pours clear, light amber with white head. Aroma: hell yeah! Smells like a gueuze, actually. Dirty, funky, sour, berries. Not what I expect from NG, really, and I love it. Side note: I’ve loved everything I’ve had from this brewery, from the most "boring" lager to the sweetest of fruit beers, and this is unexpected, delicious, Anyway, back to the rating. Taste: Tart, lightly sweet, dirty funky finish. Light to medium body, decent carbonation. Overall: A departure, and really damned nice. NG can fucking brew. burg326 (5607) - Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Poured a light yellowish orange color with aromas of citrus, tartness, brett and some light peach. Flavors are the same, light tart fruit throughout that was very enjoyable. Thanks for the share. CanIHave4Beers (4227) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Pours a light orange with a decent head and some lacing on the glass.sloth (2936) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2013
The aroma has some apple skin & barnyard funkiness/downright animal sweat.... plenty of lemon rind and lemony brightness. The vinegar character is present but is very mild.
The flavor is very tart with a nice lemon rind character... the beer has an earthiness about it and some nice brineiness. It’s sour but it’s not vinegary. Nicely dry... & well put together.
Despite New Glarus being one of my favorite breweries, I still approach their sours with a reserved excitement... I’m not really sure why I do that, but this one won me over.
Thin white head, short lived, lace? Naah, but thats ok! Hazy copper colored brew. Spiffy tart nose, cherries, lumber. Medium bodied with a nice carbonation for the style.lil pastey, TART and earthy. Lotsa woody, fruity notes, cherries, apples and grains too. Dry, tart finish. Nice fuckin Sour. Props to MOTORTODDHEAD, my friend, for the bottle! Nice one bro. brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Gueuzey, sour, funky hay, whispers of dark fruit. Grassy. Delicious. Surprisingly mature and refined; a true sour from the NG crew.
