1.44/5 rDev -65.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 1.25
S: farty and huge amounts of ground oak leaves. Even if you just add good hops, you shouldn't get this flavor... (grasss, oak leaves, grass, grass, grass)
T: same deal. I don't get how JA released such a bad beer. In their defense, my fiend liked it.
apparent-ce: beautiful light brown, beautiful lacing.
Mouthfeel: I dunno, was too underwhelmed. Good MF actually
Overall: I LOVE, LOVE jacks abby beer. LOVE it. I hate to do this, but I couldn't handle this. I actuallly dumped my 4oz glasss. I literally traded 2 bud heavy for my last bottle
Again. JA makes the best beer in the area IMO, this was just fluke miss. I won't even describe what I traded it for,
Again, I love jacks abbey, they make insane good shit. But this was not my favorite... not evan close.
Edit: Think ground oak with no balance., like if you could extradt if you could get pine cone flavor.

3.23/5 rDev -22.7%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Clear golden orange. Nice white head and surface wisps. Well retained.
Smell - Citrus hops and a little bit of a diaper aroma. Clean diaper, but weird. Some malt.
Taste - Better. Hoppy. Citrus and more pine comes out. Clean malt. Bitterness and oily hop resins linger in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Closer to medium heavy. Medium carbonation.
Overall - Decent. Smells kinda bad, but redeems itself.

3.4/5 rDev -18.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Appearance: 1 inch head, orange-gold in color, hazy, moderate carbonation
Smell: tropical fruits and piney hops
Taste: tropical fruits and piney hops
Mouthfeel: moderate carbonation, medium bodied, slightly bitter with some sweetness
Overall: Jack's Abbey is pretty hit and miss with me and while this is not a miss, it is not a hit either. The flavors are clean and fruity. Style wise it is fairly true, but it is just missing that wow factor that would make me want to get this again. Not a bad beer, just one I would most likely not get again either.
Serving type: on-tap
