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.

Primary: Viking Metal, Berliner Weisse
Kegged: Oaked English Mild, Modus Hoperandi
Bottled: None
Notable Empties: Oaked Black IIPA, BBK I, Red IIPA, Burning Bush, Apophis "The Destroyer", Vanilla Porter
On-Deck: Hobbit Ale, The Titan BW, Ale of Olympus

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.
