Hazy golden with small head. Good lacing Aroma is tart, bretty, some wood, critrus, pine, lots of grapefruit and some barn. Taste is grapefruit, brett, nice acidic. Lots fo fruits, grapefruit. Sour and nice saison that is perfect top sip on a warm summer day. Just what i needed, Bottle is 1 year thou so the acidity is stronger. Soft carbonation, oily texture

Not a sour, really a saison. Nice aroma - grass, citrus. Taste was light, good amount of carbonation. light citrus and then tartness - no bitterness or much funk and not sour. good for summer; just not a tart beer liker

DrunkSanta410 (224) - Georgia, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle to glass. Batch 15 - 2/25/14. Pours a hazy light yellow with champagne like white head. Aroma is funky, with yeast and tart notes. Hops come through a bit with some tropical fruit, peaches. Smells delicious. Taste is lightly tart, slight vinegar, slight salinity. Funky. Some citrus, slight grass. Lightly fruity. No real bitterness. Very smooth. Palate is light body, heavy carbonation. Overall this was a fantastic beer, not overly sour but what tartness is present lingers on the palate. Would be great on a hot day. Well done.

This might be my favorite JK beer. Nice aroma of funk and pear. Good Co2, great mouthfeel. slightly tart, but not to sour. Very drinkable.

750ml bottle from the brewery via Anthony at a brew night. Pours hazy yellow, no head. Light sour aromas, spice, lemon, hint of the oak. Taste is complex, lots going on, whilst also refreshing. Lovely stuff.

Bottle. A- Citrus, wheat, yeasty, tart, funk. A- Very pale yellow color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Vinegar, citrus, sour, tart, funk, yeasty, pickles, sweet, slightly bitter. P- Light body, crisp texture, medium carbonation, tart finish. O- My first sour and what an experience it was. Not as sour as I was expecting it to be however. I couldn’t tell that it was aged in oak or whiskey barrels at all but that really doesn’t seem to matter. This beer has a vinegar and tart citrus taste that works quite well and finishes with a lingering dill pickle flavor. Very odd and unique but nothing less would be expected from Jester King. Already looking forward to trying my next sour.

It’s remarkable when you can find a beer that has a huge richness of flavor but doesn’t have a lot of alcohol. Das Wunderkind hearkens back to the Belgian ales of yore, a time when lively yellow ales like this one were brewed for hydration as well as enjoyment. Smelling of funky, fruity esters, Das Wunderkind alerts the nose of the yeasty properties of this beer. On the tongue, the ale has a sour bite like vinegar and citrus rolled into one. The finish is smooth and satisfying. Known for their delicious oddball concoctions, Jester King clearly has what it takes to work with these strange yeast strains. Though not easy to find these days, Das Wunderkind is definitely worth seeking out.

Tap at hops and pie. Hazy straw yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of citrus, tart fruit, wheat, spice and earthy must. Flavor is citrusy lemon, tart fruit, wheat and light yeast. Light bodied, dry.
