dreddy (17) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2012
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.

Yorker (1857) - Herning, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2015
75 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy golden with a little sediment and a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are citrus, yeast, brett, and oak - with a dry finish.

tomer (2402) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 27, 2015
Draught, almost no head, mellow yeasty aroma with some fruit and just a funky hint, flowery flavor, medium shrubby bitterness and a bit of vinegary sourness that becomes stronger, bitter but not too hoppy. Good.

Hazy hay hued with a thin foamy white head. Huge meaty and peppery nose, funky saison and grassy tones. Great peppery and blonde malty flavor with a bit of cured meat and earthy funk. Lovely.

Aroma: lemon and sour grass. Appearance: cloudy with some yeast floaties Taste: tart and some of the essay character. Palate: thin lively carbonation. Overall: taste fizzy refreshing spritzer like with the flavor of the lemon grass you chewed on as a kid.

GreatDane1632 (1124) - Alabama, USA - AUG 2, 2015
750mL bottle poured into Prairie stemware -- very cloudy be with tiny but persistent white head. Aroma is tart lemon and hint of yeast funk. Flavor is a well attenuated slight tart Saison. Refreshing and well done.
