An opaque brown brew with a thin but somewhat clingy tan froth.

Aroma is subtle with notes of berry and over ripened persimmon.

Has a nice balance of tartness and funk with more notes of berry and persimmon as well as tea leaves, pith, grain and some sweet and spicy notes in the finish.

Medium body and dry, and just another stellar sour from JK. That's all.

For purposes of the review, versions seven and eight were compared side-by-side.

Appearance- The beer poured a straw yellow color with a bubbly white head.

Smell - The nose had the light funk of a farmhouse with some apple sweetness.

Taste - aside from the farm house funk, I detect dry sour apple. The Apple is more tart in batch eight. It reminds me of a sour apple wine, pleasantly puckering.

Mouthfeel- The carbonation is not overly abrasive. This could be an easy drinker.

Overall- I am not big into the style, but overall I can certainly tolerate this one.
