PartyFowle (732) - - JUN 2, 2015
Draft. Sunset-orange, cloudy. Two fingers of fluffy white head recede pretty quickly. Balanced aroma, sweet and tart in harmony. Peach syrup with lemony tartness and very mild funk. The flavor’s balanced up front, where peach sweetness quickly gives way to a Shock Tart bite. Not too sour at all. Very subtle funk, with a hint of lemon juice at the finish. Medium-light, fluffy body with moderate carbonation and a fair amount of smooth fizz as it moves. Tasty and balanced. Not as flavorful as Oscar, but more drinkable.

marcus (7994) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 10, 2015
On tap at Monks Kettle. Pours golden with a tiny off-white head and a spur fruit aroma. There is a medium-bodied peach and blonde malt flavor with a dry tart finish. Nice whiskey aftertaste.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Tap: Super hazy, bordering on fully opaque amber-copper. Muddled, topped with a foamy, bright white film that extends itself to a semi-chunky collar around the glass. Very woody aroma with a nice, sour funk to it. Fruity, notes of peach, lemon, & even some faint cherry. Pungent lacto sourness with a good bit of mildly vinous oak & musty wood. Taste hits hard with sour peach flesh & apricot fruit. Mild boozy & woody sharpness, slightly tannic with lots of lemon, lacto, & yogurt-esque tartness that keep you puckering start to finish. Small touch of vinegar. Dry, finishing like a mild white wine with a puckering, white grape skin quality & vinous oaky notes. Very nice peachy sour from NB.

Ratman197 (11754) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2014
On tap at Avery Sour Fest poured a clear amber with a small lingering ivory head. Aromas of straw, oak, vanilla, light peach and light barnyard funk. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, light peach and light earthiness with a crisp dry lingering straw finish.

Steve_0 (3584) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2014
On tap @ Avery Sour Fest 2014. Pour is slightly hazy orange with a small white head and good lacing. Peach skin, tannic, huge oak, biscuit, apricots, white wine and tangy aroma. Taste is very well-balanced - fresh peaches, apricot skins, white grapes, green apples, wood and pepper with a medium sour finish. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Not usually a huge fan of whiskey barrel aged sours, but I seem to always enjoy the Felix iterations. One of the best beers of the fest, if not the best.

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2014
On tap @ Avery Sour Fest 2014. Pours a milky yellow orange appearance with an off white head. Some vinegar, whiskey, oak, tannins, and stone fruit in the aroma. Twangy whiskey, caramel, leather, apricot / peach flavor. Slightly acetic. Pretty sour finish. Fairly tasty brew but I guess I wasn’t floored by it like some others.

Yellow amber. Expected and well done peachiness, definitely like how the peach come through and how it mixes with the whiskey barrel. Sour and barnyardy. Not too sour. An overall sweet whisky character. Whiskey stays in a complimentary role. Soft. a little slick. Overall maybe s little subdued, or perhaps mellowed with age? Would have liked to be able to spend more time with this (and have more of it!).

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Tap at Churchill’s Sour Fest thanks to womencantsail. Pours low carbonation, clear light orange. Weak foam. Nose peach tea. Taste is white grape juice, sort of drained and weaker with low sourness. Lemon citric bite. Clean, quenching. No acetic acid is nice.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2015 On tap at the Mayor. Orange and hazy with a white head. Sour, tart fruit aroma with wild yeast, wood and faint vanilla. Similar flavor with light peach. Medium body with a nice sour bite. Update: On tap at the brewery. Orange and pretty clear appearance with a fully diminishing white head. The aroma is fruity, sour and funky with light oak and light vanilla. Similar flavor, peachy, moderately sour and mildly sweet, with hints of fruity esters, yeast and light whiskey spice. Medium body. Nice, complex and fun to sip on.
