Incredible what a few months can do. I had my first uberkind in January. Tasted more like a funky saison than anything else. Tonight though, the sourness really picked up. Funky and sour. I was really impressed with tonights bottle. I need to get more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

77ships (3530) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2012
Borefts 2012 - draft sample / bright pale golden with a big creamy white head, towering on top of the glass, you look alive beer - smell is hugely lactic, very light, smell and taste wise this is like the most lactic beer imaginable - is that the koelschip brew he said they put into some of their beers? - Texas does taste pretty hardcore, Buddha’s brew also had this going on but that had no koelschip brew in it - still might be unintentional infections - either way the nose as I was saying, huge lactic, round, minor fruitiness in there, citric, funky - taste is the same pure lactic sourness,little seems to be underneath it, lemon, white grapes, some fruits and white beers, light sweetness underneath, acid, melon - really easy to drink another damn fine sour by these guys, seeming lack of things underneath is a slight minor point

SPDickerman (913) - Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Pours mango orange with a small white head. Smells a tiny bit sour and a little funky. Taste is tart and subtle funk. Medium-bodied with a slick, wet texture and prickly texture, Jester King Das Überkind finishes with a slight tart pinch.

AlainG (1127) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2013
Blonde voilée surmontée d’une mousse persistante qui se colle à la parois en y laissant quelques traces. Un bon nez de levures sauvages, de champs fleuri, de pommes vertes, de cerises surettes de bois vert et de bois sec. En bouche, une belle acidité entremêlée d’amertume avec un côté sec et poivré. En ce qui me concerne, c’est une belle surprise. (764-030813)

sarauckelman (155) - Heidelberg, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 9, 2012
On tap at Borefts Bierfestival, Bodegraven, 2012. Sour, but pleasant. Beautiful golden yellow color. Smooth, round, not especially full.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Draft sample at the brewery. Pours a hazy yellowish orange-gold with a small white head. Aroma of oak, vanilla, butterscotch, dried apricot, straw, funk, and pears. Flavor of sour white grapes, apricot, vanilla, oak, melon, and dry grains. Light body, moderate carbonation, and a tart, dry mouthfeel. Awesome beer.

Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle. This beers balance of tart, funk, and fruit is the stuff of my dreams. I received this in a trade and really hope that it reaches distribution out here in PA because I would stock up on this like crazy. I'm seeing Jester King around a lot more these days so things are looking good.

Light copper, thin off white lace. Funky apple, white grapes. Sour vinegar base, good flavour profile. Flavourful session brew. Delicious. (On tap at Borefts 2012)

(Draught) Pours a hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of white grapes, lemon, florals, light barnyard, and grass. Flavor of tart, puckering lemon, grass, white grapes, light pepper, and earth with a bone dry finish. Excellent.
