750 ml poured into a Jester King Stemmed glass. Blend #5 - Sept. 5, 2013

A: Pours a beautiful golden almost orange color but extremely clear. Head is a one finger almost off white and kinda rocky with great lacing and amazing looking texture. Medium carbonation and looks extremely delicious.

S: As soon as I popped this baby open I got a huge hit of fruity Brett character with a tad bit of lactic tartness. Taking a closer sniff it almost appears mildly vinous but with a more Brett and spice forward thing going on from the wood. Aroma seems slightly sweet and fruity from the oak I'm guessing with slight notes of spicy vanilla.

T: Wow, very mildly sour but does have a pleasant refreshing tartness. A little bit of vanilla from the oak. What's great is it is very dry and has hints of Brett but mainly wood aged vanilla like character. The wood aging is definitely present and makes this beer what it is but could be better if it was a little restrained for my taste.

M: Dry and reminds me of drinking a white wine but with a very distinct american oak vanilla character that I'm enjoying but surprisingly only like in JK beers. Maybe I'm biased but its a more restrained oak character as compared to a beer aged in whiskey or bourbon.

O: An amazing beer from one of the sickest breweries and friendliest brewers in America. True fact. This is a refreshing and surprisingly drinkable brew for a 10.2% abv tag. Does not seem like it at all. That in itself is amazing. but regardless, if you ever find yourself in a situation where you can buy a bottle or two, or at least sample any JK beer, DO IT!

Poured from a bomber into a stemmed tulip glass and shared with friends.
Big thanks to Seblp for the bottle!!

Nice copper color with a big foamy head and decent lacing. The nose on this brew is strong and has a lot of sourness right out of the gate with a some funk; some oak and maybe some tart citrus rind, grass/hay, earthy. The flavor kicks like a mule though and is face-melting sour...but in a good way! This is a massively sour ale with plenty of funk and on the finish some more subtle notes of the farm, earth, grass and hay. A delicious beer, but I am glad I had help with this bottle!

Poured from the 750 bottle into Hill Farmstead stemware.
Pours a medium copper color with low head and amazing lacing.
Smells funky, some hayfield and earthiness.
Taste is big! Huge sourness that I loved. Some fruit, good malts as well.
Mouthfeel was awesome, flavors lingered. Dry, but not overly so.
Overall, I loved this beer. If you like sours, you'll love this one.
