3.38/5 rDev -20.7%
A - pours a cloudy amber with an ephemeral head. No lace. Light bubbles.
S - Mild intensity. Vinegar, ambiguous berries, bourbon oak, lacto, mild bready malt.
T - follows the aroma, but not in a pleasant way.
M - medium body. Acetic and mildly boozy finish.
O - I like sour ales quite a bit, but didn't like this one much. Lacks complexity and refinement, lacks flavor beyond just being a slightly fruity and vinegary sour with notes of bourbon. The finish is a tad rough. The bourbon barrel doesn't compliment the base beer. It's not terrible, but it isn't something I want to drink again.

a - poured a one finger thick tan head into a tulip glass that quickly dissipated to a thin ring. the body was a bubbly reddish-brown color.
s - big dark fruit aromas like plums, cherries, and grapes.
t - bourbon oak balanced by tart cherries.
m - medium and dry.
o - the bourbon barrel was done nicely here but i would have liked a little more funk.

4.18/5 rDev -1.9%
750 ml bottle poured into tulip
A: 3.75 color appears as a blend of amber and copper, pours with 2 fingers of head that reduces to a slim line around the edge after 1 minute.
S: 4.0 I detect the subleties of sourness, but no bourbon notes. The aroma does not punch you in the face, but it gets the point across of what is being achieved with this beer.
T: 4.25 upon first sip, I'm greeted with an aggressive sour impact. With each drink the sourness subdues into a very enjoyable flavor. The bourbon does not come through. Halfway through the first glass this mellows out, (or my taste buds mellow out) the bourbon flavor starts showing up in the background.
M: 4.25 this is carbed fairly high, but that seems to help blend the flavors quite nicely.
O: 4.25 the taste notes sum this one up pretty well. Great beer, glad I've got another one in the cellar.
