starkmarvelo (29) - Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Jester King Das Wunderkind A- pour hazy cider color with a nice fizzy looking head. The appearance reminds me of a fuzzy peach or something. Quite a bit of lacing sticking to the glass. S- tart peaches and lemons with some barnyard funk and straw aromas. It smells very tart. T- Surprisingly it's nowhere near as tart as the aromas would have you believe. Slight lemon tartness up front with straw and funk again and a hint of white pepper and bitterness on the finish. Very mellow, subtle flavors but still tasty. M- makes my tongue fuzzy. Wanted a bit more carbonation. Still light and mellow. O- Honestly I was expecting more sour flavors, but I guess it's a Saison not a sour. This would be Le Petit Prince's big brother. Moderately complex, highly drinkable. Needs more carbonation though. Not bad. -

750ml bottle obtained in a trade. Pours hazy golden yellow with a fizzy bubbly white head. Very carbonated. Smells funky and tart. Hops and barrel wood come through as well. Winey musk to it along with a wheat finish. Tastes tart, sour, funky, woody, hoppy bitterness cut out with the dry barrel wood. Very good. Nice full mouthfeel and funky aftertaste. Dirnks like a crisp pale ale with a sour finish. I enjoyed it.

A good, dry sour. Pours light, but has a very aggressive malty, oaky character that lends balance to the sourness. Courtesy of Emma for Christmas in 2016.

NachlamSie (3421) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2016
25.36 oz bottle at El Camino. This is a hazy gold with no real head. The aroma is a little sour and peppery, certainly funky. My favorite thing about Jester King is how absurdly dry most of their beers are. This is no exception, its drier than most any other beers I can think of. Even, pleasant sourness is in the flavor with notes of oak, straw, barnyard, and lemons. Very tasty.
