Sour characteristics come to the fore in this release, foreshadowed by the tart, winey aroma. Notes of cherry, chocolate, olive brine, and leather give way to a subtle hint of funk and a dry, clean finish.

Parkville 2011. I think I may have gotten the last pour off the keg. The beer is not super sour, more in the traditional Flanders style with cherry sweetness and an underlying earthy, dirty, sourness. Its thick and complicated with lots of earthy yet berry flavors. Lots of thick, bready malts rolled in there as well. The light sourness is a nice complement.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 11, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2012 750ml bottle. Fruity and tart aroma, with notes of oak, vanilla, red grape, cherry and faint background sweetness. Cloudy red-orange in color, head is slight and fading. Flavor profile is predominantly fruity, also woody and earthy, plenty more red/berryish fruitiness here along with faint hints of vanilla, citrus and balsamic. Finishes very tart and dry, nary a trace of the alcohol to be found. Low in effervescence, moderate level of acidity here. Not a bad example of a Flanders Red style sour, would be nicer if it came in smaller bottles and at a lower price. Thanks to Eugene!

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 29, 2012
750mL thanks to Travlr! Pours a full haze, deeper orange tea. Weaker off white foam. Nose is sharp red wine, acetic, saltwater. Taste is tangy, orange, butter, tangy orange. Some sharper ruby red grapefruit juice and lime. Sharp, tangy, not too acetic. Salty all the way. Butter/diacetyl is a little distracting. As it warms, it cleans up. Salty, balsamic, red wine tannic and sharp. Bourbon barrel is a bit of a mismatch but the beer is very nice underneath. Very good.

tmoreau (3140) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Shared 750 ml. bottle after sampling #3. Poured to snifters with a deeper, hazed orangy hue, a bubbly layer of off white head foam, and spotty cling to the lacing. The nose was light, but cleaner yeasty funk than #3, so no horse blanket, but more fruitiness, sourness, and vinous/grape qualities. More spritz & effervescence was noticed, and the finish was pleasantly dry.

Nice funky sour, very pucker worthy, can taste the oak. Even after a year pours beautiful dark amber.

Boutip (5346) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle: Poured an orangey/amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and almost no lacing. Aroma consists of sour tart notes are quite dominant with light subtle notes of bourbon also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by tart and sour notes with light acidic notes with a finish that is closer to Chardonnay then bourbon actually. Body is about average with medium carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Enjoyable and well brewed top style without rewriting the rule book.
