starkmarvelo (29) - Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Jester King Das Wunderkind A- pour hazy cider color with a nice fizzy looking head. The appearance reminds me of a fuzzy peach or something. Quite a bit of lacing sticking to the glass. S- tart peaches and lemons with some barnyard funk and straw aromas. It smells very tart. T- Surprisingly it's nowhere near as tart as the aromas would have you believe. Slight lemon tartness up front with straw and funk again and a hint of white pepper and bitterness on the finish. Very mellow, subtle flavors but still tasty. M- makes my tongue fuzzy. Wanted a bit more carbonation. Still light and mellow. O- Honestly I was expecting more sour flavors, but I guess it's a Saison not a sour. This would be Le Petit Prince's big brother. Moderately complex, highly drinkable. Needs more carbonation though. Not bad. -

Bottle from unknown via trade. Pours a cloudy straw color, little to no head. Aroma pears, some funk, Brett, new oak. Body lively, finish lively and sweet, with a broad, arch, oaky character. Really nice. A great example of the modern saison.

ChrisSc (249) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2014
750ml bottle into wine glass. Minneapolis. Pours cloudy golden/orange. Lacing on the glass. Nose is a little funky and tart peach. Taste is dry, tart. Texture is light, frothy, longer finish. Overall, this beer is really nice. Taste is not what I expected from the smell - which is very nice. Beer is very easy to drink.

wchesser (1244) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2014
From errl-thanks, Chris! Batch 15-Feb. ’14 in Dec. 14. Cloudy light gold. Nose is initially light wheat, light funk, lemon, but as it warms became soaring wet dried grass, light minerality. Could just sit and smell this. Wheat base, strong limestone minerality, lightly tart with lemon citrus. Not particularly ’saison’ to me, but good stuff regardless.

Very bright straw colored pour. Big white head. Not much lacing. Sour aroma with notes of whiskey and grape. Some peppery notes as well. Taste is a sour melange of the same. Finishes tart.
