A tart, funky version of our beloved winter seasonal Jubelale. Aged in oak for 2 years, with an addition of brettanomyces in the barrels, this beer finishes dry, hoppy and undeniably sour!

"Sour me up a Jubel sir". I enjoyed the aged and soured version much more than the bottled Jubelale. It looked beautiful in the glass, everything about this brew screams old timey Christmas. Mine was dark reddish brown with a half inch off white head. Great zippy, medium mouthfeel, the tartness really sits on your tongue and the sweetness live in the throat. Harkens back to childhood holiday smells and flavours, wood, sour cherries, steaming plum pudding and comforting spices. Excellent Sour from Deschutes.

On tap at Portland brewery. Muddy brown water with a thin rope of light tan cap. A quick glass twirl and the cap gets airy with tiny bubbles. Aroma of sour plums, raisin, cheese, wood. Taste is sour and tart, balanced with sweetness. Dry finish, medium carbonation.

On draught at Pdx deschutes - pours brownish amber with residual small tan head. Nose of vinegar, booze, and wood. Taste of tart fruit, yeast, and some hop. Can almost make out jubel ale as base. Very nicely done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draught at Deschutes Brewery & Public House, Portland. Murky ruby-tinged brown. Lactic acid aroma with sour cherry, oak plum, and roasted malt notes. Taste is sour pie cherries, tart puckering yeast, and dark malt. Original Jubelale is lost, but still a pleasing sour.

10 oz pour at the Bond Street brewpub last Sunday (2/16/14). Aroma is funky, acidic, dark fruit, wood. Murky brown hue with minimal beige head. Taste is sour (7/10 on a sour scale), acidic, vinegar, very woody, caramel. Finely carbonated with a medium body. Fairly watery mouthfeel, actually. Good, not great sour. A little bit too oaky. The base beer is completely undetectable, unfortunately.
