COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Encendía was brewed on January 28th, 2013. Agave nectar, epazote and ancho chiles were added to the boil kettle. The high gravity wort (1.084) was initially fermented in a stainless steel tank with farmhouse ale yeast for three weeks. It was then racked to oak barrels previously containing Mezcal and inoculated with native wild yeast, Brettanomyces yeast and souring bacteria. Following eleven months of maturation in the Mezcal barrels, Encendía was naturally conditioned by refermentation in bottles, kegs and casks. Encendía is 11.1% alcohol by volume, 12 IBU, 3.4 pH, and has a finishing gravity of 1.000.

Batch #1 from Errl-thanks! Gusher. Pours a slightly murky burnt caramel brown. Nose is musty earthiness, tequila greenness, slightly sweet malts. Taste is lightly tart, with flavors of slightly burnt caramel, vegetal mezcal elements, dried red chiles. Light heat going down from the alcohol and chiles, but hard to believe this is 11%. Complex brew.

5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle:   Deep dirty caramel, dark, moderate foamy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Tart and lactic nose.   Smells like a nice Sour.   Sweet and sour up front, a touch of Oak, some Brett and other barnish bits.   Thought this might be more eccentric, but it seems like a straight up Sour Ale... and a decent one at that.   Little bit of Tequila background.   Surprised to see that this is 11.1% ABV.   Clean, sour, with a nice Tequila vibe.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Very nice tart and dry finish.   Soft Tequila flavors linger after the finish.   This one is good that its very clean and also that its surprisingly easy to drink for being more than 11%.   Nice beer!   Thanks Bill!

GUSHER ALERT!
Clear orange beer, huge creamy yellowish head, pretty stable, adhesive. Aroma: spicy, oxidized, some cardboard., sweet, spicy, bit sugary. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: very spicy, sourish, funky, some banana peel, funny sweet touch I can’t put together (agave probably). Aftertaste: fruity, alcohol, bit minty, mandarins, funky touch, very herbal.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5655) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2015
At Rich’s Massive Cellar Emptying Tasting. Jester King encendia 11.1% a golden brass color with a chili, lactic tart and honey. Chili, aniseed, heat burning down my throat and sweet agave. Really Interesting, I just wish it was lower in alcohol.

sebletitje (10730) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle @ Drink Rich’s American beer, thanks to Omgrich. Léger orangé, col blanc-cassé crémeux. Arôme offre un bouquet plaisant offrant un bon bouquet de Mezcal avec un rétro herbacé rappelant l’origan avec la barrique arrivant en rétro-nasal. Palais est réchauffant indiquant de suite que on est au-delà de ce que Jester King produit d’habitude. Retrouve une certaine douceur presque mielleuse. Le piment perce plus que pour l’arôme. Pointe de brett, herbacé/origan avec un léger boisé. Le Mezcal reste très présent sans pour autant être surfait, conserve un léger côté anisé-origan apparemment du à l’espazote.

Poured hazy orange with some white foam. Lost a little when we opened it - very carbonated or sensitive, I’m not sure which. Now, I really enjoyed this beer. Felt it was very well balanced, sour and funky with a slight taste to tequila, which I loved. I wish I had another one of these.

tectactoe (3126) - Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle: Hazy orange body, foamy white head sifts around on top. Big lemon peel & orange rind aroma; citrusy with a slightly vinous & boozy underbody. Warming. Background has some yogurty lacto, wet hay, a bit of melon. Don’t get chilies. Flavor has even more of that vinous booziness, almost like you get from a white wine. Strong tannins & oak play into this, too. Finishes with some lemon flesh, mineral water, & dusty hay. Leaves a white grape & white wine feeling lingering on the palate. Pretty nice stuff.

4.2
bottleforager (3211) - Gray, Maine, USA - APR 30, 2015
Pours a slightly murky dull amber color with a two finger gaseous eggshell foam. Nose is a blend of soft sweet nectarine, cedar, light smoke, earthy cactus, wet wood. Palate follows with complexity and a nice medium to full body that is focused with a well integrated carbonation. Layers of tart stonefruit, mysterious mescal wet wood, mushroom, old mossy logs. Really digging this... well hidden alcohol !
