Jester King Buddha's Brew
A- hazy golden straw color, very refreshing looking. Minimal white head & disappears fast. The label kicks ass. Matte label with metallic highlights.
S- light funk, sugary sweetness, grapes, light fermented tea/cider aromas.
T- moderate grape and lemon tartness starts up front. Bit of wheat in the middle. Finishes with an interesting creamy yogurt/cream cheese flavor and some oak notes. Has a very long lingering tart yogurt wheat flavor, almost like a taffy or a lemon tootsie roll aftertaste. Very good. Has just the right amount of tartness. Not puckering, but doesn't taste watered down either.
M- moderate carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Very yogurt like. You can taste this beer long after your last sip. That lactic taste just sticks around, not in a bad way cause its very enjoyable. Pretty wet finish.
O- very good stuff. As always Jester King makes interesting beer. A lot like a Berliner Weisse but with a lot of subtle, je ne sais quoi, flavors. Very refreshing, very light. Highly drinkable. I've never had Kombucha before so some of the flavors in this beer are new to me.

Capped 750 from Corti Bros. Pours light gold with a slight, transient white head. Aroma is mildly sour, maybe pedio, with some wood and possibly citrus? Med body or nearly. Flavor is sort of light citrus/pedio. Wood is present. In one way there’s not a lot to it. In another way there’s a lot of flavors - just that it’s not easy to pin them down. It’s a good experience.

Large shared bottle.
Hazy golden body.
Unusual aroma with a funky component that’s really separated from a pineapple-tropical fruit component.
Moderately tart. Limited Brett and funk. High complexity.
Excellent for style.
