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.

bottle. thanks kan. pours amber with white head, nose is smoky peat, flavors are smokey scotch, toffee, sour grape, vanilla, coconut. bit boozy but this is kind of a fun beer to get tanked on and not care about how imperfect it is.

deyholla (6953) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Bottle shared by hoppymeal, thanks! Poued a clear chestnut with a small white head that dissipated quickly and completely. Aroma was a bit boozy with a good amount of sweet grain and caramel and a bit of sourness underlying. Flavor was more sour with sour red fruits coming through. There was a strong grain backing with a bit of booze coming out in the finihs.

wmubronco1992 (636) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Draft at 2010 4 Elf Release Party. Pours a copper color. Medium white head. Some lacing. Hard to get much aroma due to chilly temperature, maybe slightly fruity. Lots of sourness in the taste with some alcohol and fruitiness. Very dry finish. I was excited to try this one because almost everything from the Dark Horse is excellent and this one is pretty rare. However in all honesty this wasn’t one of my favorites. Too much sour and not enough whiskey for my liking. I’m just not a sour fan.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Courtesy of sebletitje. The crystal clear 750mL poured hazy copper with gold hues and thin white head. The aroma is both sour and boozy whiskey as well as some malts and oddly some chocolate mingling with the sour notes. The taste starts a bit tart and sour then heading toward whiskey and oak. All the notes stay pretty light and fresh and ending somewhat dry. Nice stuff with plenty of balance and interest.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2009
courtesy of frampin. This one was the Whiskey Richard Lambeak. clear 750ml bottle. Pours murky brown, thin white head. Aroma was boozy and lightly grainy. Flavor, malty, whiskey is present though not overwhelming, followed by some nice sour notes. It’s very well balanced the whiskey is mild yet noticeable as is the sour side of this beer. ABV seems to be quite here as well, accompanied by some sourness and fruits. Hints of white grapes. I am still puzzled as the overall style the beer was supposed to be. I saw it more as a sour. Tasty!

Thanks Sea Bass for the share. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is whiskey, apple, malt, and honey. Flavor is slightly tart- light malt, bitterness, sweetness, and a yeasty tang. medium bodied and a nice beer.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2009
Bottle. First 750 in clear glass I’ve ever seen. Poured a hazy brownish golden color with a thin off white head. Nose is caramel, spice, oak, vanilla, slight bourbon, and funk. Medium bodied with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is somewhat sweet and fruity with notes of bourbon, yeast and caramel malt. Definitely a sourness throughout this one. Finishes bittersweet. Good.

gkost (1714) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Bottle (clear bottle) courtesy of Seabass. Pours a hazy yellow orange. Nose is funky lactic acid, tart fruits, oak and bourbon. Flavor is surprisingly nice. I didn’t think the sour and bourbon would work, but it does. Not much whiskey in the flavor, more lactic tartness and barnyard funk. Very nice.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Lambic Shared by Steve at the 2008 Kuhnhenn winter solstice. Thanks again man. Aroma has notes of citrus, whiskey, sweet and sour fruits. Medium amber orange hue with no head. Flavor is sour and tart with strong whiskey tones. palate is cloying, tart and medium bodied. Interesting but a bit off on the sourness.
