My SWMBO loved New Glarus Spotted Cow, and I was thinking about doing a clone or something close.

Lately the Spotted cow has been making her sick to her stomach about 2 hours after drinking 2-3 beer. She doesnt have an iron stomach to begin with, but lately the Spotted seems to be triggering it.

Other pasturized/filtered beers dont seem to affect her.

Any thoughts before I start brewing?

Maybe she has an allergy to something in it?

Her stomach might not be used to drinking live yeast. If you drink a lot of live yeast and aren't used to it sometimes you can have really bad gas and I would assume an upset stomach.

She's been drinking Spotted cow for a few years, usually without issue. Seems the last few months, its been bothering her.

Might be an allergy, as they can appear at any time from what I understand. Maybe with the wheat. Is she fine with bottle conditioned beers?

Not sure if other bottle conditioned beers affect her like the spotted. will have to try some and findout.

I dont know if it matters, but she is allergic to triple sec.

I know lactose intolerence can spring up at a late age, but I wonder if a gluten allergy can as well?

Has she tried any other unfiltered/un pasturised wheat beers?

you say she has no issues with other unpasturised beers (and I assume you homebrew) but what's the wheat content in those as opposed to the new glarus?

Has she had any issues with bread lately?

Technically, Spotted Cow is considered a saison, if that makes any difference recipe/allegy-wise.
