375ml bottle pours clear golden yellow orange with little bit of head. Nose and palate still hold lots of dusty oak, tannic, some musty lemon and citrus, orange, nice bourbon backdrop with some heat in the back palate, nice hayfield funk, woody, finishes dry with a touch of boozy bourbon, old oak, white grape, some lemon, grain and orange.

Boutielle 37,5cl de et partage avec Pierre T. De couleur orange au col blanc cass disparaissant assez vite. Arme est fruit et grains avec un renforcement de bourbon qui ajoute une pointe de douceur. Ce dernier se renforce avec le gain en t ambiante de la bire. En rtro-nasal je note ce bouquet lgrement suret et ce distinct penchant de levures sauvages. Palais est aigrelet mais bien plac avec un profil sec et grains ponctu dun Bourbon qui se veut rchauffant au palais. Ce dernier offre la fois laspect bois - contribuant cette note pice - mais aussi une fine douceur type du chne amricain.

tom10101 (5898) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
Bottle (375 ml). Thanks to Daniel for this one! Hazy golden/orange with a small quickly disappearing white head and no lacing. Aroma is of bourbon (not overpowering), butter, vanilla brettanomyces, caramel and light fruits (peaches and apricots). Taste is slightly sweet with bourbon, butter, wood, vanilla, light tartness and caramel. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Good balance. Decent drinkability for the style. Enjoyable. Good, but not great.

mathieuc (3860) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
Pours a clear golden with no head. Aroma is of some salted caramel and butter. No hot bourbon, but you know this is where it is coming from. Taste is lightly tart and sweet with again some buttery caramel and vanilla flavors. Maybe some fruits also but they would have to be covered in honey and not too recognizable. Carbonation level was medium (good) and body was light to medium. Really good!

Bottle from the source. Cloudy golden orange color, small whitebhead that settles quickly. Aroma of peaches in white wine, apricot, vanilla, caramel. Taste is softly sour summer fruit, vanilla, citrus, subtle edge of whiskey. Very nice.

adnielsen (10584) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle @ Armins apartment, courtesy of lukaduke. Thanks so much, Luke!!! Pours a bright, somewhat hazy orange appearance with a thin white head. Cheesy, citrusy, light bourbon, funky, fairly oaky, lemon spritzy aroma. Quite tangy, rich whiskey, orange citrusy, somewhat cheesy, a bit boozy, fairly lemony flavor with a bit of booze on the finish. Fun beer but to be perfectly honest, Im not huge into bourbon sours. Thanks again, Luke, for a seriously fun beer.

Pour out of 375 mL bottle, big thanks to Aaron for the pour! Clear orange pour with no head, aroma brought notes of big bourbon, slight vinegar, touch of bread, caramel, vinegar comes through more. Taste is a mix of white fruit, vinegar, toffee, lots of bourbon, hints of oak, finishing bitter, oak, more bourbon.
