750ml corked bomber poured into an oversize wine glass. It poured as a clear, deep amber/brown color with a small head that dissipated quickly. Lacing was equally minimal. Just enough carbonation to keep things moving.
Very interesting nose: it smelled like sour cherry cake with vanilla icing. There's a lot going on here...I'm catching sweet fresh lemonade. Perhaps some blackberries back there, too. Very assertive but pleasant.
I must admit, I was expecting to hate this. I made the mistake of reading some reviews before I tried it; however I was very pleasantly surprised. Yeah, the tartness hits fast and hard, and stays with you. Sweetness is just right. The clean finish was striking. Body was thin. Whereas I was expecting a drain pour, instead was very enjoyable from start to finish.

Poured into snifter glasses.
Appearance: not much for foam; presented a very light copper/orange hue, it almost glowed. Bits of sediment were dispersed throughout.
Smell: picked up tons of lactic and funk and little vinegar. Couldn't really detect traces of oak or bourbon.
Taste: very tart and sour yet not so vinegary. Starts out sweet but finishes dry with a somewhat woodsy no. No noticeable bourbon flavors. However it's very balanced. I like how the sweetness transform to a dry finish. Alcohol presence is hardly noticeable.
Mouthfeel: carbonation is perfect; seems to be a light bodied despite its high alcohol content. Almost refreshing.
Overall: great beer, quite a sour bomb. Something that is more enjoyable to share as there is no way I could finish this one myself.
