On tap at The Rackhouse Pub poured a hazy orange amber with a small lingering ivory head. Aromas of oak, vanilla, barnyard, citrus, light whiskey, light straw and a hint of leather. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of lemon, whiskey, oak, vanilla, barnyard and light leather with a smooth dry lightly tart lingering funky finish.

Tap at The Rackhouse - a fairly mild and, in my opinion, immature sour, but still a fair tasty brew - pours a turbid orange - a lot of lacto in the nose, a light touch of funkiness, as well as light oak and vanilla, all of which find a nice balance - flavor starts out with lacto tart/sourness, mild oak, and a subtle white wine character - some graininess from the malt swallows a lot of this character up through the middle, though - fairly sweet on the tail end, with light vanilla, which is the only quality the whiskey seems to impart here - nice restraint on the bourbon character, and fairly tasty, but I would like a more well-developed sourness - perhaps a good gateway sour, should you come across it.
