Red ale aged in oak barrels with wild yeast and souring bacteria. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and bottle-conditioned. This beer is a tribute to our good friend Russ Beadie. Thanks, Russ. Thuss.

Pours murky ruby red with a fine white head and great lacing. Aroma of stone fruits (Cherry,peach, and plum) with a hint of vanilla. Taste of sour tart cherries and light vanilla and oak aftertaste, with medium carbonation. Overall a good sour with medium body and a good balance between sour and tart.

lefossoyeur (489) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
Pours copper garnet with a thin creamy beige head that lasts troughout the tasting. Mildly sour aromas with a vinous presence of berries, grapes, some cidery notes. Very Nice mix of aromas. Lightly carbonated, Nice acidic bite, fruity, bone dry, ciderish finale, with juste a hint of wood and something nutty. I love the sourness of this one, never too acidic or acetic. Very well balanced and highly drinkable which is rare for the style. Very good stuff!

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Tasted on 1/24/15 from a capped 750mL bottle at Swilliams’ bonfire, big thanks to Churney for sharing. Pours hazy, very dark auburn with a huge white head that leaves thick sticky lace. The nose is sour dark bread malt with a touch of caramel malt. The flavor is sour and a touch fruity with a bit of caramel bread malt. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long, tart, bready finish.

tectactoe (2862) - Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle: Murky, dark, stained-woody brown color with tepid ruby hints. Completely opaque. Swampy. Soapy, gray-tinted head quickly settles to a skin. Aroma of tart black cherry, sour apple, red grape, light vinousness, a big batch of oak staves, light vinegar, & a touch of cola. Little to no funk, mostly just lacto-esque & fruity sourness. Flavor is the same way, though a bit more vinous. Lots of red grape, oak, & sharp tannins with each sip. Puckering cherry skin, mild acidity. I get a light touch of tomato? Strangely not as off-putting as it sounds. It’s just... kind of "there". Moderate vinegar tartness, stone fruit, oak, & cherry finish. A touch of musk & cork flows into the aftertaste, but still isn’t as barnyardy as many other JK offerings. Crisp, somewhat light mouth feel. Another nice sour ale from these guys.

decent sour brown, good tart flavors, a little thin. THe red wine saves it, best barrel treatment IMO for this style.

Dogbrick (8950) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Sample at the 2014 Infected Chimipalooza on 11/01/2014. Cloudy reddish-amber color with a medium white head that dissipates to a wispy film. Strings of lacing. Aroma of funky yeast, fruit and spice. Medium body with flavors of tart cherries, oak and herbal yeast. The finish is tart with a funky cherry aftertaste. Above average overall.
