jstraw (1914) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2014
A bottle in cellar for a couple years from this dreadful series, but Iím hopeful. Murky red-amber with no head, no lacing / Sour, acetone nose of orchard fruit and oak / Nope, as bad as the rest . . . . Just awful. Canít account for the difference between this bottle and the much better reviews. Generally, this line of sours from Dark Horse have been universally panned, and this is as bad as most.

jtclockwork (8240) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark orange amber with white head. Nose/taste of whiskey barrel, chocolate, soured dark and citrus fruits and candy sugar. A bit thick on the palate. Whiskey adds an odd dimension.

ICEatALAMO (925) - Troy, Michigan, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy muddy orangish color. The aroma is a sweet sour. The taste is a subtle sour. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MadIndian (2366) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2012
This one had a lot going on and I enjoyed all of it. I tasted fruit, oak, whiskey, belgian spice, vanilla and sugar. A very well blended brew. Iím really loving Belgians.

750ml bottle. pours a reddish amber with minimal head. aroma of sour funk, oak, cheese rind, caramel sweetness, and some lingering must. acidic, wild, and unique. flavor of an american wild, with added nuts, sweet breads, and some fig...big tartness and vinaigrette as well. quite nice

Sample from bottle. Pours a hazy amber brown with a medium off white head. The nose is tart and acidic to open, boozy whiskey with some white grape showing up as well. The flavor is also tart and acidic with grapes and whiskey throughout. This comes off more as a sour, not simply a Belgian strong. Either way I found it to be an interesting brew.

Lagunitasfan (1313) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Carlos kicks ass. This bottle was shared at verities 9 release. Spicy and sharp. Lots of strong going on. Pucker puller and sweet lingering. Awesome.

blklab2007 (1951) - Connecticut, USA - APR 29, 2011
notb draft pour has an aroma of sweet bourbon, light funk, and yeast. mouth feel is light and a bit sticky for a sour. flavor is on the rye side of the bourbon, light sour twang, and faint fruit. there is an odd sweet and sour up against the bourbon.

HonusWagner (1365) - Florida, USA - APR 4, 2011
Sour, acetic, a bit bretty, and a lot of whiskey. Iíd really like to try the fruited versions, because this was pretty good.

Pouring at the Night of the Barrels at EBF. Pours a hazed brown with a thin beige head. Sour notes, acid and brett. Sour and sweet, big brett notes. Long whisky, acid and tannins. This was great.
