COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Buddha’s Brew is a 4.7% alcohol by volume sour wheat ale fermented entirely in oak barrels and blended with Buddha’s Brew Kombucha. We racked unfermented wort directly into oak barrels and inoculated it with souring bacteria. From there, it spent nine months aging in our barrel room before being blended with live Kombucha from Buddha’s Brew at bottling. Like all our beer, it’s unfiltered, unpasteurized & naturally carbonated through re-fermentation in the bottle.

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. -

chinchill (4538) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 6, 2016
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.

750ml bottle, thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Hazy golden orange color. Thin white head. Leaves good bits of lace. Nice bready wheaty malt, good oaky funk, some nice citrus funk. Medium to bigger body. Good full feel to it, mild slick texture, lighter, smooth carbonation. Really enjoyable, balanced sour ale.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; a slightly hazy gold with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; tart, oaky, and funky. Tastes like it smells, but not as balanced. More lactic. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Good beer.
