Poured from 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass.

The beer is sort of a dark orange with some yellow highlights. I had to pour fairly aggressively to get some head going. The head is white with big ol' bubbles.

Lots of barrel character lends itself to some wood and vinous qualities. It's got a nice fruitiness about it(mango and pineapple).

The tart and funky qualities aren't hiding here. Mmm. Vinous and granny apple type tart flavors. A touch of wood.

Not much carbonation at all. The body is medium.

Can't wait for the second batch of this to come out. An improved level of carbonation could give this beer quite the face lift it needs. It has a great flavor profile working for it as is.

4.13/5  rDev -0.7%

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!
