This is the barrel aged cask conditioned sour version of Jester King’s Commercial Suicide, their low gravity English mild which I loved on its own right. But something about souring it made it just utterly fantastic in so many different, wonderful ways. High praise, and well-deserved.
This pours a dark ruby-brown with thin bubbles and an apparent low carbonation. Great aroma, very tart and bold, with an obvious comparison to balsamic vinegar that doesn’t do it justice. Tastes mouthpuckeringly tart, like sour cherries or blackberries, and just incredibly so. More tartness than a hoppy bitterness, which is in its own way refreshing. The souring process brought something to this beer which made it distinctive and in a class all its own. This is wonderful! I loved every sip and wish I could have had more.

Bottle: Poured a clear brown color ale with a super large dirty white head with excellent retention and some good lacing. Aroma of caramel malt with some oak notes and funky ester is a weird mix that I wasn’t expecting. Taste is a mix between some tart notes with lightly sweet caramel malt with dry funky yeast notes. Body is light with perfect carbonation. Glad I’ve had the chance to try this beer but not sure it is something I would seek on a regular basis.

3.49/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5
Appearance is a clear maroon ish purple with a half finger head that disappeared quickly.
Aroma is oak, wood, dark fruit.
taste is Wood. small coffee roast. Light toffee and dark fruit.some milk chocolate and coco powder as it warms
Mouthful is where this beer is severely lacking. Super thin. Overly carbonated. No lingering flavors. this one element hurts this otherwise decent beer.
Overall it's not something I'd want to try again.
