Had this at the Night of the Funk, November 5, 2010. Poured from the tap into a tasting glass. The color was a hazy orange with a thin wisp of foamy white head and some slight lacing on the glass. The smell is a bit of vanilla and some good funky flavor with some oak flavor. The taste is a little sweet and a bit funky. This is a little young so the sour character in this beer is just starting to mix itself into the the malty flavor. The vanilla is nice and the woody flavor is there to complete the flavor profile. The feel of this beer is pretty smooth with a medium body and a nice funky feel to it. Complex but light this beer goes down quickly and has a nice aftertaste.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2012
NOTF 2010. Hazy amber pour. The nose is really very oaky. Loads of vanilla and a touch of cotton candy as well. Belgian pale malt and a fairly simple sort of Belgian ale yeast. Lightly spicy with a soft kiss of oak. Not really bourbony at all but there is a kiss of spice. A light touch of tartness on the back of the palate as well. Kind of an odd brew.

DiarmaidBHK (3466) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Draft at Fireworks pizza. Pours golden with an inch of thick white foam and it leaves a fair amount of lacing. Bit of floral on the nose. I get a bit of funk on the tongue but not much else. Finishes clean.

On tap at Churchkey. Hazy golden pour with a large frothy head. Nose is fairly subtle with hints of nectar fruit and light funky brett. The flavor brings more bread and subtle grain to the forefront with unexciting sourness. Kind of disappointing and lacking complexity.
