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.

On tap @ RattleNHum The aroma is light, herbal, and dominated by cherries. The mouthfeel is slightly oily but interesting and fun. On the palate the beer is quite complex with notes of cherries, oranges, vanilla, cedar, mild sugar, and very little hop bitterness with well hidden alcohol. Overall a fun beer, but not one I’d kill myself to run out and get.

On tap @ Happy Gnome. Red orange appearance with an orangish white head. Wild, sour, red fruity, bourbon, and some dark malts in the nose. Slightly sour, wild Belgian ale flavor with sweet bourbon, oak, vanilla, and even a hint of the stout remains. Very complex and mostly tasty beer.

On draft at Firkin of Libertyville, served in a Goose Island chalice. Color is reddish brown with thin off-white head, Aroma of faint bourbon, oak, cherries, vinegar. Taste is tart and slightly sour, and mildly sweet. Light to medium bodied, crisp and dry with lively carbonation. Very tasty, I liked this one.

Had it on tap at the brewpub, smells amazing, the flavor is a bit muddled, it is mildly sour, not too much bourbon, but it was pretty good. It will probably be bottled soon and be some kind of whale. It is nice to have it when there isn’t as much hype surrounding it.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Clear copper-orange. The aroma is sweet, vanilla, light funk is detectable, but hidden behind the wood. Taste is only vanilla, bourbon, oily, oak, very sweet wood, not much funk at all.

nimbleprop (7560) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 11, 2011
On tap at Black Squirrel, WDC. Pours a deep, caramel amber with a thin, soapy white head. Nose is sweet, lightly boozy, woody, citrus zest. Flavor is great, orange, oak, hay, only lightly bretty which comes across as light cheese, candy sugar, malty, coconut, tropical fruit, great woody barrel flavor. The barrel is a primary flavor but not at all overwhelmiing. Finish is medium bodied, lightly astringent, very spritzy. Needed more of a bouqet in the nose, but the flavor was perfectly balanced.

Draft. Pours a hazy ruby with an off-white head. Aroma is great - sour/funk, cherries, vanilla, oak, bourbon. Flavor is sour with a nice oak/smokiness from the bourbon. Really good stuff. Reminds me of the Russian River sours. I want more.

Tap at Blind Tiger - sweet caramel and a nice deep funk. Sour fruit brandiness, acetic and barnyard. Smooth and thirst quenching.
