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

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

On tap at Stone Sourfest 09. Hazy orange pour. Sour and tart aroma, with some lemon and other citrus. Flavor is a lot of tartness up front, then follows up with a great funk.

Love barrel #13 on tap at Beachwood. Appears darker gold, verging on tangerine orange. Aroa is of lemon and other firm citrusy tart flavors. There is some funk that creates a wonderful swirl of sour flavors. Flavor strikes the palate clear, with sharp acidity. Citrus peel notes might be what keeps Love tasting bright, and almost “hoppy.” Finishes dry, with distinct funky notes. This was my favorite sour on the night!

I had this on tap at Beachwood BBQ’s sourfest. I really enjoyed this beer. Hazy yellow pour with a nice complexity of tangy, tart and fruity flavors.

On tap @ Beachwood BBQ. Cleargolden amber with a small off-white head. Lots of lemon and grapefruit rinds in the nose with some light hay and caramel buttery sweetness behind, though doesn’t seem to me like diacetyl. Flavor follows suit with a dry finish, sourness peaking around a 4-5. Light body with light to moderate prickly carbonation. Quite tasty.

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. There’s 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.
