3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bottle in official Jester King wine-style beer glass. Pours a very hazy yellow with a fluffy white head and minimal lacing. Bottle actually foamed for a bit once I opened it up. Aroma is very sour with a light pecan smoke flavor. Front taste is sour that fades in pecan wood smoke. Lingering taste is sour on the tongue but an effervescent smoke in the nose and roof of the mouth. Slightly sharp mouthfeel. Very reminiscent of their other wheat based sour beers, like Bonnie the Rare and Boxer’s Revenge, but with a smoke hint. I’m not really much of a rauchbier fan, but this is a great balance between smoke and sour. Mostly tried this out of curiosity. Probably would not buy again because if I want a soured wheat beer, I would go with one of their other options. Still a good beer overall.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Piana - Duza, wolno opada.
Zapach - Kwaskowa wedzonosc.
Gaz - Mocno nasycone, nawet po otwarciu butelki troche mi wystrzelilo i piana lala sie z butelki.
Smak - Tu jest bardzo ciekawie. Lekka slonosc, pozniej kwasnie a nastepnie wedzona slodowosc zostajaca juz do konca.
Ogolnie - Po tym piwie spodziwalem sie mocniejszej soli, ale jest ledwo musniecie. Ale absolutnie nie czuje sie zawiedzony, bo okazalo sie naprawde pyszne, bardzo interesujace w przemianach nut smakowych z kazdym lykiem.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another unique beer from Jester King. Big aroma of smoked malt with a sense of cooked fruit. Nice color with a decent white head. Medium to light palate. Flavors were blended well with the underlying smoke essence being careful to not mask the touches of citrus and sour fruit with just enough hops bitterness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle with thanks to Homer! Pours hazy orange, large off-white head, dissipates leaving lots of residual and lacing. Aroma is smoky, campfire, belgian yeast, black pepper and hay, some lemon. Flavor is light sweet initially, giving way to a light tartness. Fairly smoky but not overpowering. Belgian yeast provides hay, mowed grass, black pepper notes as well as a touch of funky musty dusty flavors. Fairly prominent lemon/citrus notes as well. Lightish body, champagnelike carbonation. This one is underrated IMO.
