COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Felix is New Belgiumís blonde sour ale aged in oak foeders at the brewery. It is blended in various proportions in many of New Belgiumís sour wood-aged beers, such as Le Terroir and Tart Lychee.

How to tell youíre drinking the Felix version of Love: should be straw to orange / amber in color, not dark caramel or brown. If itís called "Love" on a pub or festival menu, itís most likely Felix and not Oscar.

maley1 (784) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Slightly hazy golden yellow pour with white head. Aroma of oranges, lemon, funk, oak and faint vinegar. Taste of lemon zest, tart peach, funk, oak and an apple cider vinegar kick that sweetens out on the finish. Light bodied, nice carbonation, interesting beer.

Woody, oaky vinous sour blonde colored beer. Great flavors, vinous prob 6 or 7 of 10. This is great. Seems like le terroir without the dry hop. Really enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrChopin (3346) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2014
amber, thin white ring. Light acetic nose, pleasantly buttery with red fruits. Soft buttery palate, stone fruit dominates, light pepper yeast mid before the sticky pithy end, incredibly juicy finish permitted by low carbonation.

cbfobes (2325) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Enjoyed on tap, pours a hazy orange with a bubbly white head, holy crap the aroma jumps out of this one, tons of funk and fruit pour out of the glass, the flavor has an awesome amount of fruit and sourness on the front end with some of the vanilla from the barrel in the finish, light and refreshing mouthfeel at the same time, great stuff.

Pours awesome cloudy orange with good head and lacing. Smells like sour apple, sour plum and some citrus. Finishes with light sweetness, some tangy tartness. Comes together great with awesome balance. Some zest. Average carbonation. Tap at Churchkey.

craftycarl21 (2245) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Draft at CK (shamefully rating from memory). Hazy orange gumwood pour, small bubbly head. Gorgeous tart nectar fruit, unripe peach, bits of citrus, cheesecloth, and biting peach yogurt funk on both the nose and palate. Legitimately delicious.

On tap at Falling Rock. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head. The aroma is fruit and brett. Thin mouthfeel with oak, lemon, and nice tart finish. Very impressive, really enjoyed this one.
