Balance is not there. The roasted flavors of parabola do not mesh with the sour of SLOambic. Both beers are great on their own, but mixing them is a poor idea.

According to the blackboard at barrelworks the ABV comes in at 11%

This is a tasty blend of SLOambic and Parabola, but I like the components better by themselves.

On tap for the Feral One release party at Firestone Walker Barrelworks in Buellton, CA.

Described as a blend of Parabola and SLOambic.

Pours a hazy dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, cherry, berry, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with sour cherry 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 good beer that is tasty but I am getting more influence from the SLOambic than the Parabola in both the aroma and flavor.
