Man, the more of these ultra high boost sours I drink, the less I am starting to like them. Alcohol is hidden by the extreme acidity, which takes some enamel off your teeth. Oak and sour fruit. High carb. This will blow you away. A little over the top.

Bottle, pretty sure Toby brought this, thank you! Pours a golden yellow color with a smaller white head. The nose is heavy yeast and sour, it even smells a bit acidic. Taste is sour… vinegar… earthly acidic. There are some moments where a sweet and sour dance is done, but most of this was not too my liking. Too much of the vinegar thing going on. That and some rubbing alcohol. Missed the mark with me… didn’t finish it. One of those beers I really wanted to try, I think this was a fluke compared to other ratings... maybe I’ll get a second chance at it.

Bottle. Hazy orange pour, with an off white head. Fruit, oak, sour, red wine, berries, honey sweetness, stone fruit, mild bourbon, lemon, and vinegar. Good, but I think I prefer "simpler" lighter sours.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2015 750 mL bottle poured and shared. 2012 project, which might be the only one of these I’ll ever find. Might be the only one out there. Happy birthday to Bottleworks by the way. First of all, how can this beer not be good. Just read the deScription. Seriously. Pours a cloudy orange color with a fading head. Woody, sour fruit aroma. Very nice orange sour flavor, and a nice, obvious barrel presence. In love with the sour fruit flavor and light spice throughout this one. Big pucker. Delicious. Absolutely wonderful beer here. Loved it.
Lucky for me, I get to try this again. Cloudy, dirty orange pour. Sour fruit up front, with some excellent wine notes throughout. Lingering sour orange fruit. Headlining type sour here. Such a treat.

Bottle shared by Jeff, thanks! Pours a cloudy golden peach with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sour red fruits with a backing leafiness and a bit of barrel. Flavor is more of a crisp sour red fruit with sweet barrel and a light funkiness.

Bomber shared at tasting. Strong sour boozy smell. Taste similar with nice dry finish. This is pretty good.
