Tap at Churchillís 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.

Golden pour, did not pick up much whiskey save for a slight caramel oak flavor. It is mostly sour and lactic acidic peach flavor. It is an extremely sour ale.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 18, 2011
On tap at Samís, Durham. Savagely good stuff. Cloudy orange pour with modest carbonation. Nice aroma, with ever so slightly over-ripe peach giving it a richness that blends well with the bourbon and wood. Mild tartness in there with a hint of dry skins. Mouthfeel is quite nice, and while itís an unapologetically sour beer, it wasnít mindlessly acetic. Taste was terrific, blending oak tannins well with the base funk and fruit, topped off by a confident but not too ostentatious bourbon note. Terrific.

thirdeye11 (5393) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2011
(Growler) cloudy gold with good lacing and a tan head. Nose of charred wood, fresh peach, touch of whiskey, light funk, vanilla, and nutty. Taste of peach, tart tangerine, touch of whiskey, wet wood, prickly carbonation, complex and awesome.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 23, 2011
The dregs from SourThon, served up at Samís. Pours foggy orange-amber, with bubbly thin beige foam. Nose of sour peaches, apricots, peach skins, funk, wood, vinegar, wild yeast, and a bit of bourbon and vanilla. Not as overpowering on that front as others have noted. Perhaps the last of the keg is funkier? Taste is fruity, funky, acetic as hell. Finishes dry as hell. Wonderful.

Growler thanks to...? Aroma of chlorine and worthers original butterscotch candies... why is that an 8? I donít remember. Pours a muddy orange. Too much butter in flavor, plenty of pucker here though, peach gets lost though. Very sticky.
