COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We teamed up with our buddies from Indiana-based Sun King Brewery  for a CANlaboration project to unite the brewer’s friendship and passion for pushing the boundaries of craft beer in a can.   Brewers from Oskar Blues and Sun King made the trek to each others breweries for months, and are excited to bring you CHAKA, a limited-release Belgian-style ale — the first craft beer to be packaged in the Alumi-Tek® re-sealable pint bottle from Ball Corporation. CHAKA will be released May 3rd 2012 at the Craft Brewers Conference in San Diego in each attendee’s hotel room and at special events throughout the weekend (see below!).   The following week the brewers will make limited quantities available at the Oskar Blues Tasty Weasel Taproom and in Sun King’s home market.

[ Can ][ Oskar Blues Brevard ][ 16oz? ][ Taster ][ Free ][ 2/7/14 ]
>> Clear amber pour with weak foam. Nose is apple cider vinegar. Taste is toffee, sugar, browned banana, cider vinegar. Palate is sugary, papery, headache inducing. Could be renamed Belgian malt liquor with the amount of fusel alcohol in here. Belch.

rollinsr (386) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JAN 10, 2014
Pours copper with virtually no head. Aroma is very faint but it is sweet, floral, and fruity. The flavor is very crisp and clean reminiscent of fruity cream soda. The alcohol is hidden very well beneath the light candi sugar. I always expect great things from OBs and have never been disappointed.
