SOUR.

Very nice sour beer. Pours a nice amber beer, and really has little head. Smell is very subdued and yes, you can tell it has those funky agents in it. Taste is great. Not overly sour, but sour enough. Has a bit of dryness toward the end. Lots of fruits involved. Light beer also.

Blend #5 Sept 5, 2013 at 45 degrees into flute
Initial aroma of oak and vinegar
Head average (3 cm), off white, creamy with rocks, rapidly diminishing to 3 mm ring and 1 mm layer
Lacing fair, mostly occurring on the side of the glass drank from.
Body medium amber, cloudy
Flavor begins with oak and sourness; no alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl. Ends slightly sweet. After several minutes an alcohol burn begins in the stomach.
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation

A very oaky wild ale, heavy on the vanillin. IMHO, not up to the usual quality of JK.
