Bottle purchased from WLV Liquors.

A - Pours burnt orange, small white head, thin collar.

S - Spices, bread, yeast, light citrus, honey sweetness.

T - Fruity tartness, yeast funk, citrus, grapes, and oak. The alcohol is hidden wonderfully for 9%. The finish is tart grapes/oak. The taste was much more sour then the nose suggests.

M - Light body, good carbonation, dry finish.

O - Easy drinking for 9%, nice amount of sour notes, and a nice dry finish. Enjoyed this one for sure, and would buy another bottle if I have the chance.

A: cloudy orange, minimal layer of white head clings on, small amount of lacing

S: nose features Belgian esters with notes of wild flower, citrus, and lactic acid, quite a bit of oak

T: super tart to begin with acidic fruit character, tannins come in and make for a rather dry finish, a moderate level of funk, nice range of flavors

Mf: heavy body for style, moderate carbonation

O: very interesting and unique, don't get much whiskey character, but overall this is delicious and worth a try

Blend #5 Sept 5, 2013 at 45 degrees into flute
Initial aroma of oak and vinegar
Head average (3 cm), off white, creamy with rocks, rapidly diminishing to 3 mm ring and 1 mm layer
Lacing fair, mostly occurring on the side of the glass drank from.
Body medium amber, cloudy
Flavor begins with oak and sourness; no alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl. Ends slightly sweet. After several minutes an alcohol burn begins in the stomach.
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation

A very oaky wild ale, heavy on the vanillin. IMHO, not up to the usual quality of JK.
