dreddy (17) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2012
750ml bottle into a tulip glass. A soft hiss upon opening but the bottle nearly gushes, stopping short just before the foam erupted. Effervescent body is a hazy golden color, bright and yellowish with a thin wisp of off-white foam. Excellent aroma, with fruity hop notes balanced nicely with a whiff of Bretty funk and a tinge of sourness. Grassy, with barnyard hay and earth, too. The dry-hopping has really worked nicely for Das Wunderkind! Oh wow. I am now sold on Jester Kings mission of bringing Farmhouse wild ales to the imbibers of Texas. Tart notes from the Lactobacillus mesh beautifully with funky Brett and earthy, grainy malt notes. Sour grips the sides of the tongue, but not so much that the rest of the palate cant enjoy the delicate hop flavor. Crisp, medium-thin body with a perfect carbonation level. In many ways, Das Wunderkind! reminds me of New Belgiums Le Terroir---the sour, dry-hop, and funk all blend together supremely well. Really enjoyable, and at 4.2% ABV, immensely drinkable. Easily Jester Kings finest effort to date.

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 (3386) - 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.

Pours a hazy/cloudy yellowish orange with white head. Very carbonated. Oak, brett, a bit of vanilla, funk, and citrus on the nose follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes tart and dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
