On tap at the Draught House's 43rd Anniversary party.

The beer pours a hazy brown color with a small tan head. The aroma is very sour with a lot of dark fruit notes, as well as a little bit of caramel. The beer smells about like regular La Folie.

The flavor is similar to the aroma. I get a lot of cherry and strawberry notes, as well as some vanilla and oaked notes. There is also a good bit of caramel and toffee. Overall, the beer is very tart and sour and is quite puckering. The beer is very easy to drink.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

An outstanding beer overall and I am very happy I got to try it.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a taster at the Draught House 43rd Anniversary Party. A blend of 4 base beers preformed by the Draught House and New Belgium during the GABF.

Appearance: Dark reddish-brown with minimal off white head that quickly fades.

Aroma: Very tart and acidic with notes of cherries, over ripe fruit, and a hint of funk and floral.

Taste: Fruity and sour, passion fruit, cherries and lemon citrus with an earthy floral base.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium carbonation and a lingering very tart finish.

Overall: It reminded me of a combination of La Folie and Vrienden.

Serving type: on-tap
