Had this on-tap at the Avery Taproom. Poured into a 10 oz. glass.
A- Pours semi-clear copper. Thin half fingers width of white head with some lacing throughout.
S- Aged cherries with a little funk, water logged wood, and some sour vinegar. The aroma was there, just needed to be little stronger.
T- Mild sour notes from the currants and cherries, solid oak wood presence throughout and a tinge of bourbon in the finish. What really impressed me was that the sour fruit maintained all the way to the finish. It almost had a wild ale feel with an interesting twist.
M- Light to medium bodied with plenty of carbonation.
D- This beer was pretty drinkable. I think 10 oz. was plenty for me though.
Overall, this really was nothing like a quad. Even without the bourbon characteristics, the sour fruit notes reminded me more of a wild ale but tamed down a bit. Also the mouthfeel was way too thin to be a traditional quad. The bourbon added a lit more complexity to the beer, which was enjoyable. This was definitely an interesting beer.
