Pours a cloudy dark brown color with a very thin carbonated head that goes away almost instantly. There is no head retention or lacing. Big sour aroma with wine and a lot of dark fruits. Big sour taste. Wine, raisins, plums. Medium bodied with low to moderate carbonation.

This was a huge beer, it was incredibly thick and heavy on the palate, which is why I knocked a few points off the feel, as it was way too heavy for a sour. That said, it was well executed. You can taste all of the elements involved. The spiced red ale base blends together well with the bourbon and wine barrels. The sour bite comes on strong with the finish.

Not a sour guy
Bomber $27
Pours dark red little head, fizzy
Smells fruity
Tastes of wine, wood, and sour cherries, not getting the bourbon.
The sour is in the fruit which is good.
Thin mouthfeel.
Overall a very enjoyable sour and well put together.

On tap at Brewberry Bar in Paris, France. Poured in a 12.5cl tasting glass. Well well, the balance of this beer is amazing the wine notes and bourbon notes mellows quite well and go along the dark berries sourness of the ale with wonder. Amazing beer.
