Bottle at Churchkey for the Craft Brewers Conference. Poured a nice cloudy golden straw color. Aroma was latic, tartness, yeast and some light woody notes. Flavor was plenty of tartness, yeast and some tropical fruits. Very refreshing, very vibrant and very bold.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at the March tasting in Santa Cruz. Pours hazy orange. Dusty cardboardy aroma with some butter and brown sugar. Flavor is similar, with a musty malt base, some thinning whiskey character, mild lemon, nice finish of cinnamon and sugar, both from the spirit influence. Doesn’t really mesh to me.

Pours a fairly clear light gold with a large, pillowy. white head that leaves a little lacing. Cherry, lemon, earth, apricot, vinegar, a bit woody. Dry and fairly astringent. Not as sour as some others I’ve had, but that’s not a bad thing.

Bottle pours cloudy golden with creamy white head and great carbonation. Aroma of sour citrus fruit w/ a hint of oak earthy notes. Taste is tart and sour cherry and orange up front and an earthy tangy aftertaste. Overall this is one of my favorites from JK that is very refreshing and complex a must try if you like sours.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Acquired in a trade, enjoyed at 55F in a wine glass
A - Impossible to get any sort of head even on a vigorous pour. Looks like still Lambic with a reddish brown hue.
S - Hint of vinegar, cherries and peaches. Some burnt notes and lots of acidic tones.
T - Tangerine / Grapefruit acidity up front followed by cherries and figs and the finish is a watery vinegar with peaches and oak.
M - Completely still, medium body
O - The 9% is so well hidden. It’s a great tasting beer and really enjoyable. Just wishing it was carbonated.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From 0.75l bottle @ Borefts 2012. This is a honey colored light hazy one with a small bubbly and sidesticking just off-white head. It has a vinegar-sour and fruity aroma with a little bit of farm, citrus fruits and a slight sweetens as well. It has a soft carbonation level and a oily mouthfeel. Soft sour with apple vine vinegar and citrus up front. It gives of a little burn in the throat. Suppose it’s the vinegar, not the alcohol. I also get tones of sour white currants and wood. Not a favorite from Jester King, but quite tasty. Leaving my mouth quite astringent and dry. Don’t think I could drink lot’s of this. 28.09.2012
