COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In December 2013 Jester King began brewing this beer using indigenous wild yeast and souring bacteria. All bottles from Batch 6 onward should be under this rating.

Shared 25.4 oz. bottle. Batch #9. ABV 2.9%. Pours a hazy brown with a light beige head. Aroma is vinous and tart, with some funk and very faint smoke. Taste is again vinous and tart, similar to a sour red/brown but not as intense. There is also a second completely different layer of roasted malt, with coffee notes and faint smoke, similar to a porter. Add in the wild yeast and you’ve got the makings of a rather strange concoction. It’s not bad, and it could be consumed in large quantities, but I’m not sure that’s something I’d want to do.

darbeer75 (259) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2016
Aroma: sour and funky; a little fruity; Appearance: very dark amber, almost ruby red; fluffy white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: tart and sour, similar to a brown/red; pretty refreshing; Palate: medium body with long, tart finish; Overall: pretty good. Probably wouldn’t buy again with all the other options out there, but was okay.

adnielsen (10367) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Bottle @ Steve_0’s house. Thanks! Pour a dark orangish brown appearance with a light brown head. Aroma has nuts, celery, cooked vegetables, and caramel. A little twangy. Herbal and woody. Some toasted malt and caramel. More vegetables in the flavor. Low sweetness. Moderate low bitterness. It just tastes off all around.

Steve_0 (3730) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Bottle at home with friends. Pour is Murky brown with a small tan head and good lacing. Caramelly, bready, lightly toasty, somewhat acidic, oaky, and peppery aroma. Taste is vinous, bready, doughy, light smoke, somewhat toasty, and grassy with a slightly bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Not good.

SpringsLicker (3374) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Thanks to crajun for the trade! Batch #6 Pours clear brown with a minimal head. Tart fruity aroma. The flavor is tart and fruity, but there’s not much here in depth or complexity. A bit thin.
