Draft on tap at the brewpub (Orland Park, IL). Pours a nice hazy amber, more gold around the edges with a a small offwhite head that just turns into a vague film, around the edges. Aromas are bourbon barrel, vanilla and wet oak, sour on the nose with some cherries, Belgian yeast, mixes with some barnyard funkiness. Nice. Initial is medium bodied, a bit of bourbon up front, wet wood and alcohol moving into a nice bretty funkiness, lighter sourness than expected, a touch of hairspray and funk, light fruity tartness, belgian yeasty spice comes in a bit stronger. An interesting blend that definitely got thinned out and lost itís way. Too boozy without enough of the base beers shining through. Some soured fruit, but too light on the sour side.. Itís as if this beer didnít have a purpose. I am ok with the taste, it grows on me.. But as for itís complexity, it is fairly muttled.. Who knows, maybe age would do good things for this.

This was served in a goblet at the brewpub, a clear golden amber body with a smallish head that soon devolved into a ring. At first I thought this was a renamed Frambosia, a tasty beer brought to FoBAB by Mr. Wilson... until I got the first whiff, that is. This had a nose full of Bourbon, a light, sweet maltiness, a hint of fruit, and a very light tartness. The whiskey had a sturdy presence in the flavor along with a cherry-like sweetness, a touch of vanilla, and a mild tartness in the finish. Quite a nice boozey, warming sipper.
