We love to experiment here at Jackie Os. Many of our special release beers are aged in various barrels, go through a secondary wild fermentation, utilize locally harvested products, and/or highlight interesting flavor combinations. As Quincedence would have it, each of the attributes above makes this beer a truly unique creation. The beer began as our Scottish ale. A deep caramel flavored brew accompanied by hint smoke, from a touch peated malt. This beer was then placed in a freshly emptied Cabernet Barrel from Kinkead Winery in Ripley Ohio. After months of aging, this beer had taken on some pronounced vinous notes and the tannins from the barrel were lending a nice dry finish to the beer. Inspired by the developing character, I gave the barrel a dose of Brettanomyces Bruxellensis (wild yeast). The wild yeast further accentuated the fruity vinous flavors and gave the dry finish a bit of a boost. Months after the wild yeast had made its home inside of the barrel; I came across some Quince fruit at our local farmers market. I found the fruits distinct apple/pear character intriguing and purchased 20lbs to add to a barrel in our cellar. Ultimately, the cabernet barrel filled with Scottish and wild yeast made the most since. The juxtaposition of tart (from the cabernet qualities and the wild yeast) and sweet (from the caramel flavor of the beer and the vanilla from the oak) mimicked the quince its self. The fruit was gently rinsed to keep the local wild yeast from the orchard intact, and then placed into the barrel. 2 months after the fruit was added, we bottled Quincedence. This beer will continue to develop in the bottle for years to come if stored it in a dark cool place.

Tasted on 4/28/12 with the Nashville and Knoxville crews at Curtis old house, big thanks to JR for bringing this one. Pours hazy auburn with an average beige head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is sour and fruity with candied lemon peel and a touch of caramel malt. The flavor is the same tart and sour fruit, a touch of candied lemon peel, and the same underlying caramel malt. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long tart finish.

22 oz. bottle shared by alexsdad06- thanks a ton, Brad! Been wanting to try this one for a while. 2011 vintage, bottle 151/204. Pours a cloudy amber with a small beige head. Aroma of fruits (I get plum, apple, and berry, because I dont know what quince is), mild spice, oak, sweet and toasted malts. Flavor of lemon, berry, plum, caramel malts, and sour mash. A little vanilla and funk. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a sour palate. Didnt all come together that well for me. Brad said other bottles have been totally different. Id be interested in trying another batch.

Bomber to snifter (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; a cloudy amberish brown with thin light beige lacing. Smells vinegary with some malt too. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a solid mouthfeel. Okay.

Lukaduke (3168) - Gray, Maine, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Pours a deep rusty brown with traces ruby caramel on the edges and a finger or so of eggshell foam. The nose is the first indication that this beer is bubbling with complexity... Complex malts, wet wood, vinous fruit, tart citrus, cured meat, chocolate... wow, what the hell is this ? The palate just sings... the complexity is in check and the flavors all play harmoniously with one another... evolving from one spectrum to another. The cabernet character is amazing with ripe full roundness that softens the mouthfeel and adds just enough tannic vinous fruit structure that goes hand in hand with the bright quince fruit... as the palate moves into the finish the caramel malt and traces of peat emerge and linger with sour oak and cocoa touches... Wow one of the most interesting and unexpected beers Ive had the pleasure of drinking. Thanks Dave !

Opaque black - brown beer, little tan head. Light sourness on the nose. Light crisp palate. Pleasant sourness, not too sharp. Brett. Seltzer minerals. There is a sharp fruitiness but not something readily identifiable as quince. Mild dark malt background. Finishes semi dry. Nice dark sour.

Bomber, 2011 vintage, #171/204. Poured deep brown with a very nice cap of smoked beige head.. looked great in the glass. The aroma picked up sour oak, vinous notes, and dark fruit joined by a little smoked peat and aged caramel.. as it warmed up, red wine and fruity, funky Brett stood out.. I loved the nose here. The flavor was remarkably good as well.. opened tart with mixed fruit, red vinous notes, and apple skins.. toasted caramel, chocolate, and peaty malts supported.. more tangy vinous notes, apple skins, and coconut around.. finished with dry, fruity Brett, vinous notes, and charred oak. Medium-bodied and moderately sour throughout the palate.. great balance, and all the components managed to work exceptionally well together.. great stuff!
