Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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 °F.

Bottle (2013)

This is a fairly foul beer, through and through. The sharp aroma of oak is probably it's best quality, as there is also significant amounts of vomit and stinky, cheesy feet in the aroma. The flavor is largely undrinkable, as more of the vomit and stinky athlete's foot (sweat, sock, toe cheese) flavors are present as well. Yes, it's quite sour, so I guess that's a "good" thing, but the flavors are pretty awful. Drain poured my share. Perhaps this needs to still sit for some time. Granted, I've had worse beers.
