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.

A: Dark mahogany color. Retains thin head for awhile. Vigorous carbonation.

S: Sweet malt with woody notes.

T: Lots of complexity and great balance of flavors. Malty sweet with a reserved, pitch-perfect woodiness. Nutty flavors with a dryness that rounds everything out. Great stuff.

M: Tremendous creaminess for the style. Carbonation keeps working throughout. Easy drinking, but repeatedly draws you back in for more.

O: This is one of the best of JK's regular line up so far. It packs in a lot of complexity for a low-abv beer. Given its price, it makes for an excellent semi-regular treat throughout the year. Highly sessionable, but with so much complexity, makes this beer drinkable year-round and any day of the week.

Got in a trade with cyde. 750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy deep ruby red color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, pear, apple, raisin, chocolate, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, toffee, oak, light vanilla, herbal, floral, pepper, clove, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance of malt, fruity/spicy yeast, and oak notes; and great strength. Taste of big caramel, pear, apple, raisin, chocolate, toast, brown bread, toffee, nuttiness, pepper, clove, oak, light vanilla, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, chocolate, toast, brown bread, toffee, oak, light vanilla, clove, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Outstanding robustness, complexity, and balance of malt, oak, and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a great malt/yeast spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a slightly creamy, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 3.5%. Overall this is an incredible farmhouse mild ale! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of malt, yeast, and oak flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.
