2013 Batch #1. Have been sitting on this awhile. Got in a trade from my buddy Videofrog.
Decent head. A bit of smoke on the nose with some florally goodness.
Nice and tart up front, and then you really get the gin in the back which lingers.
I really enjoyed this one. Another fine offering from our friends at JK. Glad I got to try it.

I shared this with my buddy Dave, who loves both smoked beers and wild ales. Here goes!
Served in my Jester King wine glass (Thanks Michael).
The beer is a hazy golden / copper hue with an inch or so of off-white head. The aroma has so much going on...smoke, funk, grass, hay, white wine, tart fruits, apples, oak. The complexity definitely carries over to the flavor profile. An armada of bold flavors. Yikes! Saison characteristics with earthy and herbal notes. Medium to full bodied with a tangy, tart finish. Smoke and oak character throughout. An interesting and complex beer for sure.
