Nice golden ruby pour with some lace. Tart aroma that is tamed by the oak but a nice fruitiness too. The belgian yeast is nice and the sour is very good - not overwhelming at all, just nice and citrus-y and tart. The oak really balances it and is pretty noticable on the palate. Really good beer.

Light orange in colour with a small head, light lace. More sweetness on the nose then sour. Sweet with some noticeable alcohol. Its okay just not what I look for in a sour.

Headbanger (3306) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Sample 1/21/11 (Limestone Brewery)-Pours a clear orangish amber and slightly brown with a small white head. Aroma of sourness. Taste of sour with big bourbon. This full bodied brew is a nice tasting brew.

The appearance of it comes off with a nice, dark amber color...almost borderline copper. The head is a nice creamy white that clings to the side. The smell is a very nice bourbon smell with a hint of vanlla and mild spice notes. You can definitely tell this was bourbonn barrel stored. The taste comes through with the bourbon taste up front and slides into the sour flavor. It also has the hints of vanilla in the back end to which mix nicely wit the bourbon taste. The mouth feels a little dry with the bourbon lingering around. Overall, IMO it comes off like a lighter version of Sam Adams Utopias 2009...this is a decent beer with some great points to it and a nice find where I am staying.

Taster from a growler shared at Natifest 2013. Clear orange color. Minimal white head. Dots of lace. Really nice orange oaky aroma. Light floral. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Bigger body. Bigger tart taste, sour, lightly spicy. Awesome sour.

JStax (2997) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Growler shared at natifest. Pours a copper color with no head. The aroma is briny and tart. Big on vinegar. Tastes earthy and sour. Odd and not quite what I look for in a sour.

on tap st. sour day. holy grale louisville. this was one of the highlight beers for me. this has the aromas of hay and sour and funk, its a brett lacto spice upfront nose, the spice i suspect comes from the barrels. it poured a straw gold with a nice white head, hazy and opaque. the tastes of sour goodness mixed with spice or almost a black pepperish flavor, the sour tasted of a sour ctirus fruit, lots of tart and tang. the palate is very effervescent which helps to promote the bite that already comes from the sour. overall, straight awesome, im glad to have tried the all the sours from GI, inbev or not
