This colossal dark wheat behemoth clocks in at 18.5 °P. Brewed in the Bavarian style of old with 60% malted wheat, Double Decoction and 100% naturally carbonated in this very bottle. Our very special yeast and open fermentation create the gingerbread, cinnamon, and clove snap that bounces off a bouquet of fruity, banana notes from Brewmaster Dan's hand chosen blend of German, American, and Canadian barley. An eccentric indulgence only for our friends in Wisconsin.
Severe Drought, we shared the farmer’s horror as Wisconsin’s cherry crop failed! Dan bought what cherries he could. The Apple crop fared better. Then joy! A grand Wisconsin cranberry harvest. What will Dan brew with Apples, Cranberries and Cherries? Oh my! You hold the happy accident of Wisconsin’s favorite fruit aged in oak with an almost magical wild fermentation. Serendipity is a wondrous celebration that sparkles your senses and dances across your palate. A kaleidoscope of flavor discovered by accident in a sour ale!
Cheers to the unexpected.
A few times a year we cut Dan loose to brew whatever he chooses. 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. This boss Cow rules with 8.7% ABV and an Original Gravity of 18.7 degrees Plato. Fine Wisconsin malts step out with hand chosen Yakima Valley hops joined up with French and Wisconsin varieties. Fresh coriander and sweet orange peel kick up Dan’s special Farmhouse Ale. Bottle fermented and hazy as an early meadow morning, expect Spotted Cow Grand Cru to be an assertively quaffable Imperial edition of Wisconsin’s favorite local brew.
