Enjoyed from a cask at Jester King on 2/1/14, 4 ounces poured into a Jester King "Wine" glass. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance: Hazy tanned leather color, with a loose but persistent bubbly beige head. Unlike any other beer I've seen before.
Smell: Lots of green apple, with a funk that evokes cheddar cheese. So if you like that combo, you'll love this. I happen to love this. There is a fruitiness behind that sour green apple and funky cheese that is best described as a subtle raspberry.
Taste: Very earthy. Lightly tart, not overwhelmingly sour by any means, with a solid bready malt backbone. The apple and raspberry come through here too. It almost seems like it's had fruit added, but of course it hasn't. Perhaps one of the most unique flavor profiles I've ever experienced.
Mouthfeel: Very low carb, probably because it was enjoyed from the cask. The flavor lingers a while, and the beer is on the thin side.
Overall: That beer was so interesting and unique, it is in a class of its own. I've never tasted anything like it before. Really top notch, JK. You've done it again.
