4.33/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

On tap at River of Beers. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Deep reddish amber. Medium off white head.

Smell - Oak is strong. Whiskey comes through with lots of vanilla. Deep cherry acidity. Slightly vinegary.

Taste - Sour cherry. Strong oak. Less whiskey, but it comes through in the finish. Malty in the middle. A bit yogurty in the finish, too.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Moderately sour.

Overall - This is delicious. The whiskey is subtle, but tempers the sourness a bit.

Really good, complex beer. You get the La Folie bitter and then you taste the whiskey in the middle. Definitely would recommend.

had on draft at Busy Bee Cafe, Raleigh, NC. Nice dark sour. NB Oscar base then aged w/funk in a Blackberry Bourbon Barrell from Leopolds. Nice carbonation. Draft system was a little iffy so there was quite a bit of head that dissipatted nicely to a thin film. Blackberry notes are nice and lead way to a very oaky finish with a mild tart acidic bite on the tongue. Would definitely have again AND again.
