Marduk (6589) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 22, 2015
750ml bottle (thanks Mart). Clear golden color. Huge size, thick white head, stays. Ricotta, farmhouse, faint leather, fruity in aroma. Fruity, yeasty, blackcurrant skins, twiggy, moldy in taste. White wine or grape bunch roots in aftertaste. Dry mouthfeel. Nice brew.

anstei (1333) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle. Really, 4.5%ABV? I would have guessed more, because it has lots to offer. White wine character, crispy fizzy carbonizated. Beautiful!

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2015 Bottle, many thanks anstei! Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is funk, fruity, hints of Brausetablette. Taste is minerally, fruity, good lacto tartness, very pleasant. Some white wine feeling there. Very calm, but definitely pleasant carbonation. An excellent low-ABV Sour Ale.

ClarkVV (6066) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 28, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2015 750 mL bottle, March 2013, blend 4, drunk 11/28/15.
Clear, coppery blonde color with a moderate amount of white head that sits at cover.
Light, mild brett, floral hops somehow still apparent. Minor oxidation and light lactic acid. Cream of wheat and vanilla. No alcohol or flaws.
Heavy, heavy bile flavor, way too much autolysis. Sharp, flabby and lightly saccharine-like. Obviously sat too long, though its still nicely carbonated. Will definitely try again soon w a fresh batch. Its strange how variable Jester Kings beers age. Some are unbelievably pristine at 3-4 years old and others range from undrinkable to just ok at ~2 years old.

Light yellow clear pour with some lingering white head. Smell is sour and funky. Taste is a bit tart with some funk. Not getting the whiskey barrels but honestly Im okay with that.
