3.84/5 rDev -9.9%
750 mL bottle,
A: Pours a murky red-brown with a lot of sediment at the bottom. A light cap of off-white foam is there initially, but goes away rather quickly.
S: Notes of bourbon, lemon, funk, red currant. Reminds me a lot of Allagash Curieux.
T: Sweet red fruit, sour cherry, orange, with a lot of lactic acid. The bourbon really comes in and adds a lot of character. I like how it rounds it out.
M: Medium-bodied, fizzy at times, soft carbonation, medium acidity.
O: This is a good sour, it's not great. The flavours are nice, but not overly complex. I enjoyed this beer for sure, just not worth $19.

Served in a tulip glass
Appearance - hazy and dark golden in color. Thin lacing with the head after settling for a minute or two. Nice clinging of the head to the glass.
Smell - nice tart and funk on the nose with a hint of barrel notes, such as soft vanilla and oak.
Taste - wow....so amazing with the bourbon mixed with the sour. Two of my favorites making this amazing beer. Good balance with both flavors and notes from both styles come through nicely. Great to drink now, and it will probably get more amazing with age.
Mouthfeel - nice and fullbodied, rich with the bourbon barrels and it makes the salivary glands wake up a bit.
Overall - super nice and tart, good level of funk, and softly accented with the bourbon barrels. Well done, well done.

Bottle labeled with “Best by 3-2015.” A 750 ml bomber for $19.99. Poured into a small wine glass.
A nice sour. Refreshing. A really good beer that I would buy again (if available!). Proud to have this in my cellar and serve to my friends.
A – Pours a cloudy (almost opaque) (-) amber color. Well carbonated. Half-finger beige head, which quickly dissipates. Average lacing.
S – Barnyard funk, minor fruit.
T – Sour cherry, some sweetness, lactic acidity.
MF – light to medium bodied, some wine-like qualities, bright in the mouth.
