MartinT's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, - JUL 21, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Wilderness, citrus zest and spicy hop greenness yield a tart, fruity and woody finish for a unpretentious and highly pleasant Wild Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the cloudy beige.
-Acidic splash sticks to the palate.
-Initially highly effervescent, but dimming quickly.
-This is very rustic and fun, but it could be more polished.

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.

On draft at the source. Pours hazy yellow with a white blanket of foam on top. Lemon pie filling, farmhouse tart dry finish.

Bottle at tasting. Aroma of sour citrus, dry yeast and oak. Nice taste of soft tart, citrus, oak, whisky, dry yeast and some grain. Very balanced and tasty.

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, it’s 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.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow orange pour, with a white head. Light fruit, citrus, oak, some funk, and some sour apple.

RobertDale (6856) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 16, 2016
750 ml. shared bottle. Pours a somewhat hazy pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, wood, and funk. Taste is citrus, fruit, wood, and funk. Nice one.

750ml thanks to rich pours out a cloudy golden. Nose is brett funk spice some oak barrel. Taste is more of the brett funk some citrus and a nice spice.

sunevdj (4128) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 23, 2016
On tap at CBC 2013. Pours a clearish yellow with a white head and hints of lacings. Sour with a light sweet- and bitterness. Aromas of sour apples with grassy hints of hops. Medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Dry finish.

pours a golden yellow color with a quick dissipating head. Aromas of sour funk with some wood notes. Tastes almost guezelike...
