Brilliant barrel aged sour. Not over the top on the whisky or Yanina and great complex sour flavours of both lactic and pedo bacteria. Base beer has a nice sweet maltiness and the ABV heat is not over the top.

A 1 pint 9.4 fl. oz. bottle, blend #9, bottled on 22nd March 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Appearance: A hazy golden copper colour with a two finger white head that had good retention and left some nice lacing.

Aroma: Funky, tart, oak, hay with some light tropical fruit, mostly apricot.

Taste: Tart, funky, tropical peach and apricot, citrus lemon, oak, hay and a light earthiness.

Mouthfeel: Dry, medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Nice funk and fruit aromas and flavours. Although ABV is quite high, it still goes down really easy.

Yellow/gold, lasting white head. Fruity brett, lemon zest, green apple, light oakey aroma. Lots of green apple/green grape, strawberry tart, grassy flavor. Smoothed out by malted wheat and oak earthiness. Can’t believe this is almost 10%. The flavors are so balanced and the sourness isn’t overly drying or too astringent. Really solid offering from Jester King. I looked forward to trying more.

L-Beautiful milky/amber-gold orange beer. One and a half fingered ale. The head is frothy and healthy. The body is bubbly and crisp in appearence.
S- Sour lambic smell, bubble-gummy brett aroma, grassy, extremely fruity wild yeast, earth, wheat and grass also. A true blend of amazing smells.
T- This beer is mighty tasty. Crisply-tart and sour lambic-like flavors are present and upfront; this is followed by a bubble-gummy almost pickle-y brettanomyces flavor, this is also followed by an extremely pronounced mixed berry/fruity sweetness, finally followed by a wonderful bitterness. Damn, this beer is like candy. Seriously delicious.
F- Perfectly dry and literally exactly the style to the tee 5/5 on this.
O- This is honestly the sweetest, candy-like beer I have ever had. It's almost perfectly balanced for the style. Beers shouldn't taste this good. An absolutely exquisite ale.
