Uff-da by New Glarus, for my pal Montague

A good day trip from Chicago can take you through Monroe, New Glarus and Middleton, Wisconsin, and can be a rewarding beer and cheese experience.  I’ve done it, and would do it again in a heartbeat.  I have mentioned the “Disappointment in Monroe” and their products before, but in New Glarus my disappointment turns to glee and even giddiness.  It is a town of good food and great beer.  Uff-da has a very sweet, rich bouquet which greets the nose immediately upon opening the bottle.  It is somewhere in the amber-to-mahogany color range, and is surprisingly headless for a malty beer, although there is plenty of carbonation to be seen. Not much lacing to mention either.   The taste is sweet, but not overly, and their is a hint of coffee in the finish.  Overall a pleasant beer, notable for it’s sweet qualities, but maybe lacking a little something.  I absolutely love their Spotted Cow, Organic Revolution, Fat Squirrel and Belgian Red, but that’s a story for another day.
