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.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2011 Bottle. 12 oz. Split with James and Vin. Pours a violent, ruby red with a small, quickly dissipating white head. Leaves a slick red surface. Aroma of cherry pie crust, vanilla, fresh oak, apples, brown sugar, roasted sweet malts, and slight hints of apple cider. Medium bodied with a loose, yet robust and tart palate. Finishes with fruit esthers and a sweet pie crust doughiness that follows through on a bit of sourness. Excellent ale.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2010 12 oz. bottle from Woodman’s Market in Madison, WI. Pours dark orange with a reddish hue. The aroma is tart sour cherries with oak and Earth and some underlying apple cider vinegar. Also, a hint of vanilla makes its way through just a bit. The flavor doesn’t bite you on the tongue with sourness but it’s certainly a sour beer. Vanilla and oak nearly share the stage with the sour cherry. It’s nothing short of stunning. This is one of the finest sour beers I have ever tasted.

Tons of Bottles. This is one of my favorite beers I have ever tried. Pours ruby red with a small, quickly dissipating white head. Leaves a slick red surface. Aroma of cherry slurpee, cherry pie crust, vanilla, fresh oak, apples, brown sugar, roasted sweet malts, and slight hints of apple cider. Medium bodied with a loose, yet robust and tart palate. Finishes with fruity esthers, dark fruit and a sweet pie crust doughiness that follows through on a bit of Wisconsin cherry sourness. This beer reminds me of a melted cherry slurpee. Think Belgian Red with vanilla. Unreal fruit beer from New Glarus.
