COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A few times a year, we will cut Dan loose to brew whatever he chooses, uncensored, uncut, unplugged. Always handcrafted, this beer is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again. A complex and intriguing original. The mystery began with wild yeast spontaneously fermenting a rich treasure of malted barley and cherries. Unlined Oak casks breathe deep vanilla hues and chords of smoke into this sour brown ale. Our Master Brewer has forged a smooth garnet tapestry that defies description. Wander off the beaten path.
2006 vintage - 7%
2010 vintage - 5.5% (separate entry)
You can tell the vintages apart as the 2010 bottles have the symbol to the left of the UNPLUGGED banner while the 2006 does not.

2010 version. Says its a fruit beer on here, not sure if it is a full blown fruit beer. It pours into my chalice a vibrant reddish orange. It has a decent white head that quickly recedes it leaves a bit of lacing. The smell is very oaky, for some reason the oak scents in New Glarus beers are a bit more blunt than other beers. There is a light fruity character, but no sourness. This is a very sweet beer, almost cloying. It is fruity but not overly so. It has a nice sourness. Over all this is the oak which again, is blunt. I dont know if it is the barrels but the oaky New Glarus products just seem off for some reason to me. This really reminds me of Monks cafe which I find a terrible representation of the style, this one like that one is just too sweet and the oak just doesnt meld properly.

Reddish brown pour with an off white head. Aroma starts with some big oaky and vanilla characterstics, cherries, and vinegar. Flavor is a tremendous mix of sweet and sour. Sour cherries, sweet vanilla, raw oak, red wine vinegar, raspberries. Man this is delicious.
