Bottled. Nice sour flavor tempered by bourbon barrel aging which lends some sweetness and depth.

I really enjoyed this but I am a Sourhead. I would have liked more sourness but I thought that it was a rather ingenious paring of flavors. Some aging would do wonders with this I think.

Props for mixing the bourbon characteristics with a sour. It works. I get both flavors, but I wouldn't purchase again though..

Really falls flat, and was very disappointing. Advertised around town as an "under-the-radar, brewed-once-funky-sour" that came nowhere near the positive words or price tag. Look, smell, feel are all very mediocre. The overwhelming scent and flavor is oak. Overrides both the wild and the sour components. Subtle hint of sour but this felt more like an ordinary old ale versus a wild or sour or barrel-aged anything. Needs a lot of work.
