3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wow. This one?s a shocker. Pours a dark reddish brown, frothy head, decent lacing. Sour, tangy aromas, hints of molasses and dark fruit. Heavily carbonated, medium bodied. Not as sour as I expected, mostly offset by the roasted malts and hints of brown sugar. This is one surprising, interesting beer. Iím a fan.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Dec. 2, 2013 bottling, Batch 6, drunk 6/23/15
Can I just start by saying the fact that this beer is in absolutely pristine condition, with no hint of oxidation at just shy of 19 months old, is one hell of a testament to the brewers.
Chestnut-to-auburn colored body has some darker mahogany tints and an off-white/eggshell colored head that is large and recedes farily rapidly to cover. Clarity is very high, leaving behind the sediment.
Wild yeast and bacteria galore open up the nose, with a distinct cherry note from the brett and a seamless transition in to nutty, lightly roasty malts and dry caramel that balance perfectly. Notes of hazelnut and creamed wheat rise up against the yeast/bacteria elements and continue to impress with a delicate, wonderful balance.. No hops, no oxidation, no alcohol, no flaws. Just clean, well-presented aromatics and not even too sour/tart after all these months in the bottle.
Flavor mirrors the aroma pretty well, starting on dry, lightly tart acetic and lactic notes with cherry and light lime notes emerging to brighten and enliven things further. Malt is wonderfully well-attenuated yet not a single sign of astringency or over-drying. Very light toffee/caramel hangs in the background, carried on by a creamy, tightly effervescent texture. All the while tart acids build in the background and a still-snappy carbonation clears it all away on the finish, leaving light hazelnuts, mineral water and plentiful fruitiness lingering. Pretty damn near perfect. Guess the aroma could have a little more strength or richness if I have to be critical, and I suppose you could say the same about the flavor? But how rich/deep can you expect the malt to be in a 3.3 abv beer without disrupting the balance? Drank this thing down greedily and happily, wishing there was a lot more. I donít know if JK just hits a sweet spot for me, or what, but when their beers are on, Iím left wanting little more. As always, excited to continue my Jester King quest.

750 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The color is a dark brown to amber with a beige head of foam and good retention. The aroma has oak, char, molasses, burnt toffee. The taste is sweet and earthy, but as it gets closer to the finish, acidity becomes noticeable. The tartness is fruity. Light body and velvety carbonation.
