Bottle as part of a JK tasting. Having this as part of a Jester King fruited sour tasting made two things clear: 1) JK knows how to build a beautiful wild, sour beer, since all of their barrel aged stuff has a great combination of barnyard funk and a sharp acidic bite, and 2) this has to be their best fruited sour. The cherries balance the tartness extremely well, allowing both flavors to come through before hitting a nice, drying balance. Theres also a nice, earthy cherry flavor that really cuts through; its never sweet, but its very prominent and it goes well with the rest of the beer. Theres a lot of flavor in this, and its expertly pulled off.
