We love to experiment here at Jackie Os. Many of our special release beers are aged in various barrels, go through a secondary wild fermentation, utilize locally harvested products, and/or highlight interesting flavor combinations. As Quincedence would have it, each of the attributes above makes this beer a truly unique creation. The beer began as our Scottish ale. A deep caramel flavored brew accompanied by hint smoke, from a touch peated malt. This beer was then placed in a freshly emptied Cabernet Barrel from Kinkead Winery in Ripley Ohio. After months of aging, this beer had taken on some pronounced vinous notes and the tannins from the barrel were lending a nice dry finish to the beer. Inspired by the developing character, I gave the barrel a dose of Brettanomyces Bruxellensis (wild yeast). The wild yeast further accentuated the fruity vinous flavors and gave the dry finish a bit of a boost. Months after the wild yeast had made its home inside of the barrel; I came across some Quince fruit at our local farmers market. I found the fruits distinct apple/pear character intriguing and purchased 20lbs to add to a barrel in our cellar. Ultimately, the cabernet barrel filled with Scottish and wild yeast made the most since. The juxtaposition of tart (from the cabernet qualities and the wild yeast) and sweet (from the caramel flavor of the beer and the vanilla from the oak) mimicked the quince its self. The fruit was gently rinsed to keep the local wild yeast from the orchard intact, and then placed into the barrel. 2 months after the fruit was added, we bottled Quincedence. This beer will continue to develop in the bottle for years to come if stored it in a dark cool place.

22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a lacy beige head leaving spots. Nose is peat, red wine, funk and mild sour fruit. Medium light with a tingle. Taste is sour lemon-lime, i guess the quince, earthy wood and wine. Finishes with a hint of oily smoke. As it warms slight caramel emerges but overall doesnt quite come together for me.

Quince on tap at Jackie os during the morning of its own release party ... Porsche dark cola brown with a minimal light beige head... Aroma of sour dark fruit and a mile woody bourbon presence but not as prominent than the aforementioned...Bourbon and tart dark fruit upfront and then muddles thru the finish, more sour/ tart than bourbon barrelxwhich is nice. Finishes short not completely dry but abrupt. 7/4/8/4/15

22oz bottle, courtesy of moejuck/thebaldwizard/JoeToTheMoeMoe. Thanks, Joe! Pours a dark, murky cola-brown color; creamy, fine-bubbled light-tan head with modest retention and solid lacing. Murky lookin. Lightly tart brett, raisin- and sour-cherry-like fruitiness (lets say "quince"; or quince fruit roll-ups), and some brown sugar maltiness, along with a light oxidative papery note. Medium-full body; relaxed carbonation. A muddled presentation from the get-go: brett character with some aspirin / light medicinal notes (not a death blow, but there in small quantities), a modest tartness and sharp acidity, and a scattered fruitiness mixed with papery notes and oxidized qualities; plenty going on here, certainly, but I cant say Im enamored by the final result. Very much dig the wild yeast approach, but the net result errs on the medicinal side (Im looking at you, brett; cant you play nice?). Medium-length finish: red fruits, light tannins lingering, slightly sweet at the far end.

brokensail (15774) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 28, 2011
A: The pour is a dark brown color with a tall off-white head. S: Really a weird nose. Pretty heavy on the malts, especially toffee and toast. There is a mild tartness to it (quince?), and some light fruit notes. Quite a bit of barrel, especially char. T: The flavor isnt really any better. Roast and charred oak with some tartness and dark fruits. There is a bit of sweetness and toffee. Heavy wine flavor and tannins are really overpowering. M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: This was not enjoyable. All the wrong flavors were intense/dominant.

BMan1113VR (7916) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Bottle shared at sourfest. Pours with a deep, murky brown body and a tan head. Aromas of light citrus, pear, fruit, esters, smoke, and brown sugar. A bit earthy and leathery. Flavors of light lactic acid, mild sourness, smoke, peat, brown sugar, esters, pear and alcohol. Finishes dry and a bit acidic. Messy.

Bottle someone shared at sour festival in 2011. Dark brown tan head. Nose is slightly fruity. Taste is really different and quite nice. Hard to describe.

Ibrew2or3 (8099) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Courtesy of markwise. It pours murky amber with copper hues and thin off white head. The aroma is bright wood as well as brown sugar coated prunes and spicy yeast. The taste seems similar with wood notes and some wood then quickly rolling into tart notes, soured fruit skin tannins as well as a bit of sweet brown sugar and prune like dark fruity esters. This one seems to be all over the place and doesnt manage to come together too well.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle This beer rocks! Murky brown ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The aroma furnishes caramel, chocolate, oak and red wine more acidic than expected. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor provides loads of caramel up front; sour cherries and yeasty bitterness on the backside. Finishes crisp, tart and quite dry. Kudos to darkguardian for sharing this world class Scotch ale treatment!

In a weekend filled with many sours, this one stood out as a good one. I cant really put my finger on it, but the combination of sweet and sour was quite impressive. Would love to drink again.
