4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy dark orange with a fluffy white head. Very nice and funky aroma, grassy and peppery, a little brett, nice bright tropical fruit notes like pineapple, and a nice musty sort of barnyard character. Lots of wet grass and barnyard funk on the taste, tropical and citrus fruits, and a light refreshing brett character. Waaaayyy too easy drinking and light to be 9%.

Batch 8, March 2013, draught in December 2015. Beautiful farmhouse aroma, rich and fruitily dusty. Sweet and rich taste, very well balanced with bitterness, carbonization and alcohol. Beautiful!

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.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.
