A fantastically oaky sour from Drake’s. Orange-blonde ale, aromatic from a couple feet away. Funky and acidic. Fruity with pronounced oak in both aroma and flavor. Just great. Opens up quite nicely and very sessionable at 6%

A - Served a cloudy golden-orange color with a thin layer of frothy white head. The head fades fairly quickly leaving behind some light lace. S - Aroma is a mix of sourness, sweet light fruit, some green apple, some sweet malt and grain, and a bit of oak. T - Starts off with some sourness and tartness with some sweet malt and oak. Through the middle some more tartness comes through with some green apple, some more oak, and a bit of yeast. The finish is a mix of sour and tartness with some sweet malt and oak that linger. M - Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a nice tart finish. D - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced. It is fairly light bodied but does not sacrifice in flavor at all.

Wait a minute, this beer marks my 100th Sour/Wild Ale rating. How did that happen? On tap at Drake’s Barrel House pouring up clear deep gold with nice white head. The aroma is big bruising soured citrus and lemon notes and then seemingly rimmed with a sense of tart wine grapes. The taste starts tart then turns toward soured citrus and then running up into full up tartness. Behind those notes are murmurs of tart wine tannins. I’m digging this as it is big and tart but has some depth going on too with various soured and near molding citrus like notes.

One of my favorites from the Bistro Barrel Fest, pours golden with a thin off white head. Full brett, citrus and light malt nose and flavor. Excellent lasting finish.

Tasted at the 6th Annual Bistro Barrel Aged Beer Fest on 11/12/2011. This sour/wild ale pours a medium orange gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, tart, bretty and funky. A medium bodied wild ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, bretty, tart and funky. The hops are herbal. Decent carbonation. Lots of funk and must. A touch of red wine as well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly tart and funky.

On draft at the Bistro Barrel fest. I was surprised to hear that this won the peoples choice award. I had at least two other Drakes beers alone that I enjoyed more. This one pours light yellow gold with a white head. The aromas have some pale malt and very bright tart citrus and vinegar. The flavor is the same with some mild red wine and wood notes near the finish. Not bad, but far from my favorite.
