Bottle at The Aviary.

A - Most voluminous foam of the series. Bottle was a slow gusher, and head lingered indefinitely.

S - This smells infected - there's definite brett and an odd sort of vinous and perhaps lactic character in the periphery. I'd never heard of Clynelish, but from the aroma I thought this might be some sort of port or red wine barrel variant; never would have guessed it was a single malt. Mix of tart grapeskin, cherry, sour candy, and oak. The bonus yeast has actually attenuated the base beer quite a bit, and I don't get much whisky character at all.

T - The taste isn't quite as good. It's very much a bretty Belgian Strong, with toasted grains, fruity sweetness, and light lactic and tart notes, as well as a bit of oak. Not really getting a ton of whisky. I know Highlands are significantly less peaty than Islay, but I expected at least a bit more spirit character.

M - Medium body, a bit lighter than the other variants. Pleasant carbonation, lightly tannic finish. No real alcohol presence.

D - This was surprisingly enjoyable, even though I think the flavors weren't the intended ones. The mild sourness was actually quite refreshing relative to the other beers; perhaps Jeppe should make a wild series with this base next time?
