Felix is New Belgiumís blonde sour ale aged in oak foeders at the brewery. It is blended in various proportions in many of New Belgiumís sour wood-aged beers, such as Le Terroir and Tart Lychee.

How to tell youíre drinking the Felix version of Love: should be straw to orange / amber in color, not dark caramel or brown. If itís called "Love" on a pub or festival menu, itís most likely Felix and not Oscar.

Hazy copper/orange color with a white head. Nice tart cherry lemon, vanilla wood cinnamon aromas; lots to take in here. Medium tart throughout with sour cherry and lemon, with some vanilla and wood to temper some of the tartness. Very good. Draft@ Brouwers

Draft at Stumbling Monk. Large head. Deep orange color with maybe a bit of amber. Hazy. Aroma was citrus, tart, yeast, brett. Taste was a big sweet flavor, peach, unripe pineapple, sour, dry grapefruit finish, very centered around the sour(exactly what I like in a sour). Great beer!

Stone Sour Fest barrel #3. Cloudy golden orange. Really big nose, big funk, horse blanket. Citrus fruit up front, big funky presence, finishes earthy/dirty/musty. Thereís also a sweetness to this brew that adds some complexity, making it a really great sour.

Stone Sour Fest barrel #3. Hazy orange yellow. Champagne bubbles. Smoky tart nose. Deep tart and leather. Big sweet taste. Big tart thunk. Dark and full in the mouth. First flavor splashes bright and light at the end. Some honey and citrus show up to the party. Great brew.

Sampled at the 2009 Stone Sour Festival. New Belgium did not dissapoint with the samples of beers they provided to the event. You could definetly detect the begginings of all the good beers this one lends itself too. Loved the wood, sour fruits.

Tap at Stone Sour 09. This puppy was an ordeal: hands-down the most hot, stratospherically sour beer I have ever had and that includes 3F Vintage Geuze. Nose is like hot peppers without the spice, just the heat. Also strawberry and citrus, but soured. Flavor is hot like stomach acid and pickles. Wow. Just keeps coming in rings and waves. Gives way to a green apple juiciness, but keeps all previous impact. Really unreal.

Tap at 2009 Stone Sour Fest. Love Barrel #3. Pours a brown gold. Sweet oak, Brett tart, almost Gueze-like, sweet tartness. Real nice.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2009
On tap at Collins. Pours cloudy orange with a thick pale yellow head. Aroma of lemons, with a dot of sour cherry. This is a seriously sour beer, like oak-aged lemon juice. I like this, but Iím not crazy about it, A bit too sour to be really enjoyable.
