Naturally soured by farm valley winds blowing wild yeast into our oak casks. Finally, after a year and a half of patient coaxing Wisconsin dark malts whirl in a kaleidoscope of cedar, caramel, and tart green plum exuberance. Available to the exclusive few who travel off the beaten paths, this is authentic Wisconsin sour brown ale. Truly unique this Sour Ale is brewed for those who live on the wild side and is suitable for laying down or consuming immediately, serve at 40-45 degrees F.

355 ml bottle at home. Dark amber-copper color with small white head. Complex aroma, light funky with fruits like cherries and strawberries, also sweet malty caramelish, with maybe vanilla and apple. Sour and sweet taste. Light to medium body, oily, soft carbonation.

Received in a trade from BVery -- Brown sours are probably my least favorite sour, but this was one that I really enjoyed. A well crafted beer, I would definitely drink again.

12-oz, capped and foiled. Thanks, C! You’re far too good to the rest of us. Pours crystal clear bright medium amber with a soft creamy tan head that goes away. Mild balsamic, pie cherry, and strawberry nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Mid palate is a bit of tangy tartness with some fruit notes. Not as crisp and distinct as the R&D sour, but it’s younger. Still nice. Mild grassy finish.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours copper, light cherry and oak, sour, fruity, refreshing.

Westmeister (2127) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle or 2 shared by Donnie @ Ale Alpharetta. Hazed amber color,tan head. Aroma is soft sweet fruits (plums, cherries). Taste is the classic integration of sweet yet soft fruits into a beer. Not a classic red/brown, but medium to light tart cherries, plums, slight woody aspect, vanilla. Absolutley amazing.

neepsntatties (2042) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle courtesy of "hannont". Colour...light amber with no head. Nose...quite funky and fruity with hints of caramel. Palate...lightly tart and somewhat fruity with hints of yeast and funk, but also metallic bits too. I was rather interested until the metal hit.

mcberko (18998) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
12 oz. bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a dirty, opaque dark brown with an amber tinge and a small white head. Nose brings out all sorts of tart dark fruits, oak, and a caramel sweetness poking through. Flavour is a balance between sweet and sour if there ever was one, starting with the tart dark fruits, transitioning to caramel malts, and finishing off quite balanced. The oak quality rounds everything off. Unusual sour - usually these sweet & sour beers are really off-putting, but this is quite complex. Very good beer.

_angst_ (5008) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle received in trade. Thank you stawn! Pours very hazy reddish golden with a rather small frothy beige head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet, sour and fruity with dark bread, wild strawberries, heavy blackberries, frozen strawberries, moist hay, lemon juice, blackberry balsamic vinegar, lemon zest, black currants, leather, blackberry yoghurt and hints of barnyard. Taste is tiny sweet, sour and heavy fruity with sweet dark bread, red wine vinegar, heavy blackberries, heavy black raspberries, hay, black currants, leather, lemon juice, moist hay, moist wood, frozen strawberries, blackberry/raspberry unsweetened yoghurt, barnyard, lemon zest, orange zest, black currants and hints of wild strawberries. Mouthfeel is slightly dry, tart and medium bodied. Finish is sour and fruity with dark bread, heavy blackberries, blackberry balsamic vinegar, moist hay, black currants, lemon juice, dark grapes, moist wood, frozen strawberries, orange zest, cobwebs and barnyard. Wow! I can see no mention of fruits or berries in this beer but this is one of the best blackberry sours I’ve ever tried. Will get the chance to try R & D Sour Fruit tomorrow. I can’t wait!
