Poured from tap at Portland Holiday Ale Festival 2010:

Truly a delight, this is a barrel aged, smoked sour blended from many barrels in the Bear Republic cellar. Shows a medium sour character with dark and heavy roasted notes focusing on coffee, and mocha

On draught at Bailey's, Ebeweesner Scrooges (2010 vintage) is a very dark, ruddy brown with an off-white collar leaving scattered, foamy lace.

Smell is lactic sourness, sweet-tart, like a cascade brew.

Taste is starts pure lacto pucker, but then in comes a nice blast of smokiness, robusty, a touch of peaty phenolic but really almost more of a beechwood vibe. Very interesting, and awesome! Just a touch of waxy phenolics, but the depth is...wow.

Mouthfeel is slick, lighter bodied, dry.

Drinkability is very high for me. Wow! This is a great combination that I have to question why it wasn't though of before. Very, very nice. I don't like to be piggish, but this one beckons another...

On tap at Bailey's Taproom PDX 4.23.11, not sure this is classified correctly re should be smoked sour, 12 oz. $4.00.

Tulip featured half finger broken big bubble dark reddish amber clear body, no visible carbonation. Sour and tart in the nose, not picking up a lot of smoke, may need to warm up a bit. Cherry tartness, big dose of funk in the taste, the smoke starts to assert itself on the tastebuds on the back end, minimal hop presence. Mouthfeel a bit light, good effervescence. A really interesting taste on sours, can I have another. Worth seeking out for the Sour Head Kids.
