deyholla (6511) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Old rating, cask. Pours a cloudy amber fold with a light brown head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma had a nice sour note with some backing hoppiness and a slight sweet note. Flavor had a nice combination of hoppiness and sour fruits with a slight underlying sweetness.

orangesol (680) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Served on cask at Al’s of Hampden into a nonic pint. A - Pours hazy dark copper with a small, thin, off white head that lasts until the final sip leaving spotty lacing down the glass. S - Starts off with a blast of strong sour notes straight to your face slowly giving way to a hint of the hops that lie beneath the sourness. A bit of a bready note from the wheat. A very intoxicating nose to say the least. T - It is described as a Sour Wheat IPA, and it is listed under a wild ale. First sip starts with a dull wheat flavor giving way quickly to the crisp taste of the hops that lurk in the shadows of this beer. It then rounds out the trifecta with the addition of the tart sourness. Aftertaste is best described as a tart IPA. It matches the description given to a T. M - Smooth as silk thanks to the hand pull. Good carbonation but it did seem to thin out a little bit toward the end. No big deal. D - Even with the somewhat high price I ordered two. It is not every day you get to have an original beer like this. I love when breweries take chances like this. Who knows, maybe this will become the new trend? I sure hope so.

Aroma of light brandy/bourbon (more brandy), with spices, orange cordial, Grand Marnier orange spiced cognac, sour funk, must, spicy sourness. A nice 50N 4E - esque nose.

Clear orange-yellow pour with a thin white head. Light bourbon aroma with sour citrus and lemon peel. Very dry and acidic. Lightly tart with a very bitter and hoppy finish. Funky with some herbs. Light bourbon. Bitterness lingers.

Growler thanks to ryan. Pours a lightly hazy, burnt orange with a clumpy white head. Nose is nice, sour, wheat, grass, lemon, herbs, grapefruit, apple, cognac. Flavor is sweet, white grapes, apples, lemons, herbs, grapefruit rind. The barrels seems to be more wine than bourbon. Lots of bit citrus peel flavor. Finish is tart, puckering lemon, medium bodied, dry. Very unique.
