Reviewed from notes.

Pours a very hazy moderate orange color with a pretty good white head and a bit of lacing. The nose is pretty strange with a load of whiskey plus a bit of a sour character. Not the right type of sourness, however. There's some lime and a bit of bready malt. The tartness of the lime base and the whiskey don't really match. The same goes for the flavor, where the two just don't really click. Light to medium body and a mild acidity in the finish. I like the concept, but I'm not sure this really hit the right spots.

Keg at EBF.

Light fizzy head, clear copper colored.

Nose is like iced tea, brown sugar, hint lemon, bit of caramel malts and brownish malts, don't really get the whisky.

Taste is again sweet like iced tea, bready malts, light phenols, hint brown malts, hint of what I want to believe is whisky but not really, again a light lemony/lime flavor, and dry finish.

Mouth feels a bit thin, decent carb.

Overall not really my cup of tea. Again I like how they are trying to push the mold a lot, but this is just meh.
