I 'm interested in this recipe - what has been your experience?

Close to taste, needs tweaking, right on, etc.

I only very recently brewed this and it is still in primary. I don't expect any sour character for quite some time.

I won't be able to make that assumption for a while.

Maybe I can taste the non sour version to compare with Gotlandsricka. However, I don't think Jester King will ever release Gotlandsricka again. It will likely only be Viking Metal from now on, so it will be hard for me to answer.

Why wouldn't they release Gotlandsricka anymore?

Easily my favorite brewery day BTW.

Also, after trying Noble King I emailed them about the yeast. One of them got back to me within a day saying it was WY3711.
