3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’m not sure if I’ve had a successful experience with a ’bourbon and sour’ combo beer. This one has malt vinegar notes, wood, slight fruit salad esters, boozy caramel and a thin body.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Slight white head dissolving quickly to a thin covering over a pilsner-colored body darkend by bourbon barrel wood but clear. Aroma is bourbon, straw, chocolate, and cracked grain with pretzel in the mix. Taste is sour and salty. Palate is lively with effervescence rather quick in the finish. Overall, a good beer though rather forward with bourbon at only 6%. Kind of a Disneyland night on the town.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Drakes Barrel House. Pours dirty blonde with a decent off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a moderately sour malt flavor that leaves bourbon on the palate. Not a typical Belgian Singel, yet pretty tasty.
