A truly spectacular sour ale. Wisco needs to see more of this from the breweries in the great beer state. Like always, expect Dan to lead the charge. Dfonorow (2318) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle share in 2013. Clear copper with a small beige head. Aroma and flavor of berries, sour mash, crab apples, rye bread, honey. Light carbonation. 1FastSTi (3358) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours to a red-hued amber body with an off-white head. The aroma is cedary sour malts with caramel and twang. The flavor is deeply caramelized underneath all that delicious sourness and cedar. White grapes and funky yeasts. But clean. The beer is a fantastic one by New Glarus. Kinda like their own rendition of the Duchess. But definitely cleaner, and not metallic. Clownoisseur (489) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Pours a nice reddish-copper. Medium-heavy carbonation gives a nice of-white head that turns to a thin cap. Aromas are vinous with musty grape, oak and a slight spice. Taste is a tart apple with some mild barrel undertones of oak, vanilla, clove, light banana. Some caramel sweetness before the dry and crisp finish. Nice carbonation and tartness persist. Very nice. changeup45 (1731) - Lake Mary, Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle from StFun. Thanks for giving me a chance to try this! The pour is a dark reddish-copper color with a nice khaki head on top. Cherries, vanilla, oak, light grape in the aroma. This smells great, like a slightly funky Belgian Red. A bit tart and prickly in the mouth, but nothing extreme, and as expected from New Glarus, this straddles the Sour Ale/Fruit Beer line. The flavor centers around funky wild berry and cherries with oak, soft vanilla, and light vinous notes mixing in. Dry finish which counters the fruity sweetness nicely. Light in the body but not thin. The flavor doesn’t match the complexity of the aroma but it’s tasty and well done.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours amber with a nice white head. Aromas of sour cherry and wood, spice and funk. Taste is more of the same, big sour note. Dry finish. Nice. BenH (3431) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2014

355 ml bottle @ home, from a trade. Pours really clear bronze with a minimal head. Aroma is not as tart as expected, some sweet cherries and a hint of balsamic vinegar. Taste is very pleasant, lots of sweet cherries, some red apples. Nice mix of berry sweetness and light acid. Really nice one!
