4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from bottle. Cloudy golden color, with thin white head, little lacing. Smells of rich floral notes. Perfect balance of malty and hoppy, sharp kick of orange and citrus. Nutty-almond after taste. Great beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a tulip. Like just about every other JK beer Iíve had, this is overcarbonated.
3.25 A: Murky yellow brown color. Many fingers of foamy white head. Not going to mention retention because it was massively overcarbonated, but much of it did stick to the glass.
3.75 S: LIke JKís other farmhouse brews, this has a ton of herbalness in it. I can pick out specific herbs too, but I donít know what the hell they are called. Also getting a healthy dose of wildflowers, apple orchard, barnyard funk, and dry wood. Finally, plenty of earthiness makes this a dirty, rustic nose.
3.25 T: Tastes like it smells, except that there is too much damn yeast. It was too carbonated to properly decant this, so it has to be figured into the review. Still, itís not too bad. Again, lots of herbalness. Wildflower, apple orchard, barn, wood. Earthy with a mild bitterness.
3.25 M: Medium body (would be lighter with less yeast I presume). Too much carbonation initially that I swirled to a manageable level. Spritzy. Would have been given a better score if it wasnít overcarbed.
3.25 D: Itís not a bad brew, but the quality control at JK needs to improve. They need to let their beers finish fermenting before they bottle them.

Patrzę na oceny innych i nie wierzę. W mojej butelce była ambrozja! Aromat malin, wiśni, ciasta, rodzynek, agrestu... Po ogrzaniu bardziej triplowaty, wyszły belgijskie nuty przyprawowe i brzoskwinia. W smaku dopełnienie masakry: cudnie winogronowo - jabłkowy, słodki, bardzo musujący jak najlepsze szampany, kontra w postaci subtelnej, przyprawowej goryczki. Alkohol? Był tam jakiś alkohol? Bliskie absolutu!

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Deep pumpkin-orange, very cloudy. One finger of thin, short-lived white head. Smells and tastes like a barleywine. Big malt character, like overripe oranges. A little sherry, caramel. Oddly peppery, like a saison. Fairly dry finish. Odd mix of flavors. Medium body, big-bubbled carbonation, a bit of alcohol heat on the tip of the tongue. Not my favorite. A very weird blend of flavors.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes. Tasted some time near the summer of 2012 from a capped 750mL bottle that I obtained from the Rare Beer Club. Pours hazy orange with a thick off-white head that leaves thick, rocky lace. The nose is citrus orange, caramel, corn bread, and some spicy yeast. The flavor is a touch of sweet, caramelized orange peel up front, moving to the corn bread malt and finishing with some spicy yeast and bitterness. The body is medium with average, smooth carbonation, and a long spicy and malty corn bread finish.

Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. Hazy dark yellow with a small white head. Yeast, coriander, a touch of white pepper, and a little funk in the nose. The tartness provides a nice balance to the light malt notes. Lemon pith, hay, and yeast flavors blend well ending with a slight spicy touch. Well made.
