12 ounce acquired in a trade with iowaherkeye, thanks again man for a chance to try this one, drank tonight from a pint glass, color is a dark red with brownish tone, one inch frothy light tan head that lasts a little while, some lacing at first, aroma consists of sweet malts, raspberries, cherries, yeast, vanilla, oak, and earthiness, flavor starts off with red apples and cherries, sweetness in the middle with a big berry flavor, earthy and sweet in the finish, lots of berry flavors with a little tart all the way through but more sweet than sour, definitely wild yeast in there, like how it warms up with lots of oaky barrel characteristics, sweet, fruity, and softly sour mouthfeel, medium bodied, moderate level of carbonation, taste lingers for a few minutes, could drink more of this quite easily, do not know have any idea of the alcohol content but it seemed light and this drank smoothly, not heavy or overly sweet, one of the more interesting Unplugged brews, have not had a bad New Glarus fruit beer yet, it seems like it is what they do best, hopefully this one is rebrewed, this seems to have aged very well, hope to drink it again, recommended

4.9/5 rDev +18.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Bottle pours a clear copperish amber, half finger of white head
smell is cranberry, cherry, apple, tartness, bready malt, yeast funk, citrus fruits,
Taste is well read the smell, Cranberry, apples, cherry, tart, sourness, yeasty character, bready backbone.
Mouthfeel is medium full with heavy carbonation that contributes to the fullness of the beer.
A amazing beer, never understood why this was not more sought after with all the craziness with Wild Sour Ale... I have been doing my best to keep my last couple bottles out of the case I had until Dan brewed it again.... God I hope that is soon, I also hope it sticks around longer then WSA.... It is better and I hope I am the only one who knows it!
