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.

Greg brought this one back from a trip to Colorado. +++ Sampled from a 16 oz twist off can this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a medium sized foamy white head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was musty, bretty, bready and had a candied golden fruit presence. The flavor was tangy pear, apricot and bread with faint brett and must underneath. The finish was long, bready, bretty and had lingering golden fruits. Fairly full bodied. Very well done.

Out of da cask! The aroma is sour to me. The appearance is great. The taste is sweet, and not as sour as i figured it would be. Good beer, overall. Would buy some more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yeah good. Oskar blues, what did you expect? Deep blood red amber. White foamy head. Weak malty nose with a little funky sweetness. Smooth and sweet beginning balanced by a hefty bite and yeasty, bitter finish. Screw red stripe! Hooray Oskar Blues!

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.

I honestly never saw the color of the beer because of the awesome Alumi-Tek can. I will assume it is an 8/10. This is a sweet Belgian (but not at all boozy, even though it clocks in at 8.0%), with a spicy finish. Nice plum and malt tones.

This belgian style ale poured from an alien ship bottle was full of dried fruit aroma. The spiciness of the belgian yeast was definitely present as well. The taste was close to the aroma. The texture of this beer was fabulous. Very good offering.

On tap at Duck Island Alehouse on new years eve 2013. Pours a slighty hazy dark amber brown color with a medium off white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of belgian yeast, belgain candi sugar and doughy bread. Tastes of the same things in the smell with sweet burnt sugar flavor almost like baked beans. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy with good carbonation. Pretty good colaboration. A nice sweet and hoppy american style belgain stronge ale. I was glad i was able to try this rarity on tap.
