On tap at pony. Pours lighter than I expected.. Amber. Butterscotch upfront with sweet cherry in the finish and oaky notes. Also some rose, and alcohol poking through. A dry brew. Extremely interesting but not that incredible.

On tap at the Clybourn location. Pours a reddish-copper color with a single-finger head and a good collar as it goes down. The nose brings a good amount of bourbon as well as some nice lactic character as well as some slight notes of vinegar. The bourbon dominates a bit too much, and this thought carries over into the taste. Bourbon, oak, and some acidity. Nothing too complex. Feel is a bit dry and mildly sour. Some booze there as well. Iím not quite sure Iím a big fan of wilds in bourbon barrels. I havenít been terribly impressed with one to date. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 12-30-2010

Sampled at the East Nashville Beer Festival, í11 Sour, light, crisp. Very clear, like a triple color, flavor is very balanced but simple, like the New Belgium Verienden or a soured Pilsner. Itís not bad, but I wish I had some other flavors to hang onto rather than just sour.

tap at Trion - Pours amber with a small, off-white head. The aroma is of bourbon with a little underlying fruitiness. Itís interesting to read other reviews that differ as I think the bourbon really dominates the flavor to the detriment of a much subdued sourness. It has an enjoyable medium bodied, bubbly palate. Good, but at the price point I expected better.

1FastSTi (3336) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2011
Pours to a deep coppery wood colored body with a thin creamy white-ish head. The aroma is oak, cherries, vanilla, and Matilda-like things. Thereís a nice Belgian yeast there. The flavor is basically a more sour Matilda with some chocolate and vanilla notes. Medium body with a light sourness.

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2011
On tap at Rattle N Hum. It pours amber with almost no head and carbonation. The nose is red apple, red grape, candyfloss and sweet pear. It is quite thin and taste is dominantly of sweetened cranberry, red apple, lemon sherbet and red grape. I expected it to taste sour and as such was left disappointed with the overall sweet flavour.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
On tap into a tulip at the brew pub...A medium copper, clear. A light tan head with really good lacing and retention, really attractive beer...Thereís a ton going on in this aroma, wonderful combination of vanilla and bourbon. A little wood, lactic notes, very interesting overall. I was told this was sour matilda, still surprised ba didnít wreck this beer...The taste is nice bourbon, vanilla, a little spicy. As you drink the flavor almost shifts per drink, but the vanilla and bourbon does begin to drain your taste buds as the beer itself if light flavored and doesnít really stand up to the other strong flavors. Interesting and worth trying.

Tap at Waterfront ale house. Poured a dark clear amber. Nose is slightly sour with spices and a hint of bourbon. Rich creamy mouthful. Interesting mix sour, spicy, with hints of the bourbon. Tart and sweet. Interesting.

Draft at RnH with Linh. Pours a amber orange body with no head. Aroma is fruity, oak, and slight vinegar notes. Mouthfeel is thin and slick with great notes of cherries, wood, bourbon, and vinegar. I really liked this sour. Another great offering from The Goose.

Pours a brownish orange with a thin off white head. Smells heavily of bourbon. Taste is fruity! Sweet and sour with the hint of bourbon at the finish.
