Really messy beer with a lot of clashing elements. Smokey, sour, BandAids. And if that weren't enough, an unpleasant gin flavor underneath. Pretty gross.

Harsh and off putting, not a fan.

Opened my last one of these a few months back, it was drinking excellent, great tart/sour/smoke combination.

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.
