Opaque black - brown beer with a tidy mid-tan head. Palate is light, slightly soft and a little dry. Fine carbonation. Mild sourness. Mild bourbon with dark fruits. Balsamic vinegar underneath, tempered by a trace of vanilla. Semi dry finish. Interesting but I am still yet to have a bourbon BA sour that I really want to have again.

Craft Clerkenwell. Bottle tasting. Opaque brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Mild balsamic. Flemish red sourness. The sourness is well tempered by vanilla oak sweetness. Light dry finish. Really liked it this time around.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2013 Bought in Nov 2010 at the brewery. Drinking now finally. Dark brown beer with a very solid light brown cap and very good lacing. Sourness is wonderful. Vinegar, raspberries, plank wood, mild vanilla, dates are the sweetness, bit o funk and leather. Fruit is great. I have been smelling this for 40 mins. Taste. Bourbon, lemon, vinegar, spice, nose heat not alcohol. This is so low in alc that I could not put this on 6%. Lemon, cherry, succulent sourness that ends on a lemon note, tart, vanilla is sort of there, everything is great! Stellar beer that I payed way more attention to the drinking and pure enjoyment than I did to the review.

Dark brown with tan head. The aroma has a lot of tart dark fruit and a bit of funk. The flavor is a lot more complex. I get a lot of chocolate and tart dark fruit notes, as well as some roasted malt and vanilla. As the beer warms I start to get a lot more bourbon and oak notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A great sour.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2013 750ml bottle courtesy of CaptainCougar. Really nice merge between a sour and a big bourbon beer. Sweet huge brown ale, but completely balanced by the sour tones. Dark orange brown body. The sour starts to eat away at other flavors Excellent beer.

750mL bottle, courtesy of bvc (thanks Brandon), pours a deep murky dark amber brown with a small tan head. Aroma is very complex, full of oak barrels, dark fruits, maybe some bourbon barrels, no hint of the spices – very deep and complex, characterized by red wine oak barrel complexity. Flavour is remarkably complex, with dates on top, loads of woody oak barrels, mildly tart fruits, a slight hint of bourbon, and loads of other dark fruits. The tartness is not overbearing, but perfectly accented, with both the wine and bourbon barrels well situated amongst the many flavours. Lively carbonation, which brings out all the complexities perfectly. Extremely complex and delicious stuff – a highly complex sour.

Bottle provided by CaptainCougar. Thanks! Poured a really nice brown color with a tiny tan head. Aroma was sour notes, a touch of vanilla. Flavor was vanilla oak, with some bourbon and a touch of sour notes to it. A nice melding between a sour and a bourbon barrel aged ale.
