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

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

OldMrCrow (2434) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2016
Tap at Toronado Seattle.

Browish pour, little head. Classic NB sour aromas, not a huge amount of complexity. Deeply tart, not totally dry but not sweet. Exactly what youd expect the base beer for these others to taste like, but it works a bit better than you might have expected. My favorite NB sour save for Erics ale.

On draft at pine box for 4th anniversary. Really fresh it seems on draft. Orange peel, lemon and lots of funk. Really makes you pucker but in a good way. Really fantastic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bytemesis (8126) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Tap at rare barrel. Looking time want ticked! Pours hazy golden orange, medium bubbly white head, decent lacing. Aroma is oak, lemon, stone fruit, pear, white peach. Flavor is medium tart, hint of funk, oak tannins and some pit fruit and lemon. Not acetic, which is nice, not not really popping either. I think the sour world has kinda left this one behind.
