COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Some people paint, some sing, others write I brew". -Daniel Carey A few times a year we will cut Dan loose to brew whatever he chooses, uncensored, uncut, unplugged. Always handcrafted, the bottle you hold is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again. Sparkling and bright this is a Wisconsin original created for you in the traditional method employed by the Lambic Brewers of Belgium including five months of outdoor resting in oak barrels. Indigenous yeast and cranberries from the wilds of Wisconsin flawlessly pair to dance on your palette. You have discovered a rare and delightful treasure to be served cold in a fluted glass. Thanks for supporting the arts, Daniel and Deb Carey

Bottle. Pours a clear ruby tinged orange with a thin to medium sized white head. Light sweet fruit, a touch of funk and brett, a bit of vanilla, slightly vinous. Wow, sweeter than expected. Tastes like ice cream. Vanilla and cherry ice cream. Very sweet, a bit of tartness. Little cranberry dryness almost balances the overwhelming sweetness, but not quite. Still tasty though.

Heres an old one. 12 oz bottle enjoyed with my wife on Thanksgiving 09. Pours clear and ruddy with a small, but fizzy head. Aroma is strongly cranberry accentuated by the lovely spiciness found in all NGs fruit beers. Taste is beautifully tart with loads of cranberry and cinnamon. Sweet, but balanced by the acidity. Medium carbonation and eminently drinkable. A perfect treat for the holidays.

Aroma had cranberry with hints of sourness. Upfront cranberry flavor, sweetness and tartness. Medium body, tart/dry finish. Yummy, cant drink too many due to tartness, probably gors well with vanilla or chocolate ice cream.

Pours a vibrant mixture of orange, red and red with a fluffy white head. Smells of cranberry juice and funk, with maybe a hint of cherry. The flavor is an awesome mixture of tart and sweet. This is quite the "lambic". Thanks Ughsmash

12 ounce bottle courtesy of madvike who was kind enough to send me four of these. Thanks Matt! Once of the most anticipated NG beers for me in a long, long time. Pours a clear pale red color with a thin white head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of cranberries and cherries with notes of coconut and wood. Tart and sweet at the same time. Taste is cherries, cranberries, faint funky notes, oak, vanilla. A faint bit of sugary vinegar if that makes any sense. The funk here is there but its very mild. Good entry level lambic. Insanely drinkable. Good beer.

DietPepsican (1587) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Huge thanks to canIHAVE. Dark amber pour with a small white head. Aroma up front was the cranberries and quite a bit of funk and what I was thinking was tartness. Flavor was cranberries, cinnamon, oak, caramel, cherries, and chocolate. Finishes sweet but with enough acidity to balance it out. Very interesting twist on fruit beer meets sour ale.

Boutip (6208) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 27, 2010
Bottle: Poured a light reddish color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of tart notes with light sweet cranberry and acidic undertones is very enticing. Taste is a complex mix between some lightly sweet cranberry with some tart notes with a well balanced finish that includes green apple-like acidity and some light funky ester. Even though this beer present great complexity it is still very easily drinkable and very refreshing which I rated very highly. Body is about average with great carbonation. An excellent beer from a brewer that consistently amaze me.

Pours a thin tan head, decent retention with minimal lace. Clear amber red hued brew. Nicely tart nose, cranberries, cherries, woody spicey notes. Body is lightly medium with a nice effervescence, lightly tart and prickly. Nice berry cherry flavor, hint of cinnamon, wood and a light earthyness,sour apples, maybe a tad funky also. Sweet tart finish, fruity and juicey with a light mustiness. Interesting brew. Props to my friend motortoddhead for this one!
