Pours cloudy orange, very close to an amber color. Nose is sour fruit, slight citrus and funk. I am not a true sour aficionado but I definitely enjoyed this. Taste is like the nose, sour fruit, funk and citrus notes. Ending in a dry white wine finish. Not sure if the whiskey barrel aging blend came out at all in this.

I stored the remaining beer in a swing-top half growler and had it the next day paired with chicken salad. I have to say it was still very drinkable; even more wine-like characteristics showed while enjoying it with dinner. It paired nicely with the homemade chicken salad.

Definitely a sipper but it was still a very interesting and enjoyable beer. Not too off putting at all if you are unfamiliar with the sour/farmhouse style beers. Jester King is widely known for these.

Seek it out if you can. It's available in Texas. Trade for it and see how it is. I hear it ages really well and I do see that as a good possibility although it would be best in a fridge to slow the souring bacteria growth.

Cheers!
