Sampled 750 ml. bottle @ ACBF 2015. Hazy orange, little head. Nose is huge lemon, citrus, lemon, peel zest sour mixed with delicious fruity hops. Taste is lemon, hay, funk, lots of hops, funk, crazily drinkable, in part thanks to the sourness. Outstanding beer. Really loved it. (Thanks for sharing people!!!)

Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of bacteria, toast, vanilla, lemon, and citrus. Taste of vanilla, white wine, wood, tropical fruits, and a tart finish.

Pours hazy orange with a large white head. Smells earthy and funky with a touch of sour. Taste is primarily sour with subtle earthy funk tones. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and mildly fizzy mouth-carbonation, Jester King Das Wunderkind finishes with a soft lingering tart prick.

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.

Une arôme de douce sauvagerie, beurre, cuir, zest de pamplemousse émane d’un furieux liquide doré qui se calme rapidement. Le vieillissement en barriques est brillant, délicat, complexe et surtout impressionnant considérant le frêle 4.5%. J’adore le brett calibré de cette façon.

Had with Bruce from a bottle he picked up at a gas station in Austin and generously shared. Pours a clear golden with two fingers of foamy head. Aroma is yeasty with lots of citrus and some funk. Really nice aroma. Flavor follows with lots of citrus, especially orange peel, and nice bitterness. More funk. Very light and refreshing and bursting with flavor. Really nice beer. Enjoyed this almost as much as the company of Bruce.

750ml bottle into a tulip glass. A soft hiss upon opening but the bottle nearly gushes, stopping short just before the foam erupted. Effervescent body is a hazy golden color, bright and yellowish with a thin wisp of off-white foam. Excellent aroma, with fruity hop notes balanced nicely with a whiff of Bretty funk and a tinge of sourness. Grassy, with barnyard hay and earth, too. The dry-hopping has really worked nicely for Das Wunderkind! Oh wow. I am now sold on Jester King’s mission of bringing Farmhouse wild ales to the imbibers of Texas. Tart notes from the Lactobacillus mesh beautifully with funky Brett and earthy, grainy malt notes. Sour grips the sides of the tongue, but not so much that the rest of the palate can’t enjoy the delicate hop flavor. Crisp, medium-thin body with a perfect carbonation level. In many ways, Das Wunderkind! reminds me of New Belgium’s Le Terroir---the sour, dry-hop, and funk all blend together supremely well. Really enjoyable, and at 4.2% ABV, immensely drinkable. Easily Jester King’s finest effort to date.
