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.

Shared by ericteusink at 4th of July. Wild barnyard, hay, and yeast aromas and flavors. Little bit of sourness on the finish with some pepper spice. Light lemon fruit working throughout.

Cloudy straw. Really peppery and dry. More of a saison than a sour. Tasted at chris’ ultimate bottle share.

gEUS (1471) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours light yellow with a medium white head. Nose is peppery and hoppy, not that sour. Nice white pepper, elderberry and light apricot exotic touches. Not really a sour but more an american style saison.

Bomber. Pours orange with a white head and tart, sweet fruity aroma. Taste is tart as well, with lots of oak and whiskey along with citrus notes coming through leading to a fruity, tart, oaky finish.
