Served in a glass at the 4th Cellar Party at Bear Republic brewery. Bubba himself poured it. From notes. Reviewed 30 September 2012.

A: No head, light lacing, clear gold.

S: Sour Belgian-wild yeast. It reminds me of an Oud Bruin. Tart, fruity, vinegary, and engaging.

T: Puckery! Fruity. Reminiscent of Lost Abbey Red Poppy. Balsamic raspberries and bright lemon juice. The finish is Brett-funky.

M: Interesting and forceful! It has presence.

O: Great beer; very nice. Highly recommended. A delicious barrel-aged sour.

On tap at the 2013 Firestone Walker Invitational held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with malt, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with fruity and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that tastes better than it smells in my opinion.

On tap at Surly Goat.

Clear golden amber colour with a small white head. Fair lacing and head retention.

Big oak and acid aroma. Tons of coconut and vanilla with a nice acid that works. Some grape notes.

As with the aroma this is a big combo of oak and sour. Fruity esters add interest and are a nice foil for the oak which dominates. Lots of coconut and grape. Acid is plentiful but balanced.

Medium body with moderately-high carbonation. Good.

A really solid beer. Tasty and fun. It seems a touch high on the oak but I still like it.
