4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to PreisMJ! Pours deep, hazy red with a small, short lasting, pink head. Aroma has EXTREME amounts of raspberries. Unripe, ripe, tart, and funky raspberries. Really fresh, but with an almost jam-like sweetness to it. Taste has first of all lots of the ripe berries, but with a lovely, crisp tartness. Vinegar, a little rosť wine in the taste, dry bitter wood, leaves you with a perfectly cleansed, sour after taste.. Very big taste compared to many other sours. Pretty full body for style and ABV, but with a crisp carbonation and a fresh sourness. Good stuff!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared with vestergaard and rasmusott. Traded with preismj. Deep hazy ruby red with a pink thin head that fizzes away right after pouring. Settles with no head at all. This beer looks amazing. Aromas of tart raspberry, sweet notes of raspberry jam, some yeasty, funky notes. Some floral wine-like notes. Taste is medium tart up front, some sweet matured raspberries followed by some funky stale/hay-like notes in the finish. Canít tell if itís the oak that made this beer so damn good, but damn.. damn son, damn.

From trade with Preismj. Pours deep red with no freaking head. Aroma of raspberries - ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? RASPBERRIES IN A BEER????? Yes. Freaking gewd. I also get a lot of funky notes behind this fruit forward freshness. Some vitamins, weak oaky notes and some sweet red wine. Very complex - what is not to like? Taste is quite tart with nice fruit forward raspberries. Both ripe and unripe notes coming along here. Also some funky notes behind this along with some oak, red currants and I almost get rosť wine out of the taste as well. Very nice and highly sniffable beer!

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma: Fresh it smells like raspberry jam freshly made
Appearance: Thin Pink head with a nice deep rose color throughout.
Taste: Delicious and jammy when fresh. You taste the raspberries from beginning to end with funk from the middle to end. When this is aged more than 8 months the raspberry fades to the background and the funk comes out to play. Rivals LP Framboise when aged
Mouthfeel. Light/Medium with nice carbonation
Overall: This is probably my favorite fruited American Wild. This beer changes so much over time and only becomes more complex

The beer is ruby hued with a thin collar. Huge raspberry aroma. Funky character with a jammy raspberry quality. A simple and straightforward beer. Makes me want to revisit Lou Pepe Framboise - itís been too long. Delicious and teeming with flavor. So much fruit. Fabulous. My favorite Jester King thus far.
