At Richís Massive Cellar Emptying Tasting. Jester king chrysalis blend 2 pours a plum color. The nose is violet flowers and blackberries. Well balanced. Very dry light body with a tart berry flavor, a touch lactic and acidic. Much less sweet than the Almanac.

[ Bottle ][ 500ml ][ Jester King ][ ~$20 ][ Teku Glass ][ 7.18.15 ]
>> Neon blood purple pour, diminishing bright pink foam. Nose is blueberry rhubarb cobbler, really superb. Taste is sharp, prickly, zingy berry acid, low acetic, salty, beets, mix of earthy berries and rhubarb. Super fun beer and probably the best Iíve had from Jester King.

500ml bottle. This is nice stuff, has a unique murk pour. Flavor is berries, funk, acidity, itís a weird blend of flavors not like most sours which makes it interesting.

yum, nothing like a blackberry sour from texas to kill it. Moderate-heay berry flavor. Its odd, I donít know exactly the blackberry flavor and couldnt guess it blind. Its just "insert stereotypical berry flavor here". MOderate tartness, dry finish.

Bottle shared at Butlerís place with Chris and Craig, thanks to Chris. Pours pinkish red with a slight head. Aroma is lots of berries and lemons. Flavor follows with nice tartness, somewhat sweet. Lots of berries. Really nice beer.

Tmoney99 (12045) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy dark ruby color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour, berry and wood aroma. Medium to full body with a tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style.

Bottle @ RBSG 2015. Thanks DJ! Deep purple colored beer with some pinkish foam. Juicy boysenberry and blackberry nose on this. Jammy fruits, lemon zest, and some oak. A touch of vanilla sweetness along with a touch of sweet fruity jam. Nice sourness of berry, lemon, and green apple. Drying oak and fruit skin finish. Solid!
