Reviewing Omniscience & Proselytism, a wild ale fermented in oak barrels with strawberries from the Jester King Craft Brewery out of Austin, Texas.

Score: 97

Fall 2013 vintage bottle served in a Kuhnhenn chalice glass and enjoyed on 05/28/14. Thank you Scott for sending me this delicious treat!

Appearance: Pours a nice sunset orange color with a nice orange-to-yellow fade. Okay lacing, good retention. 4/5

Smell: Bright strawberry jam and seeds, oak, hay, black pepper and a hint of plastic. A hint of lemon zest too. So jammy, so strawberry forward. 5/5

Taste: Strawberry jam, crackers, lemon rind, oak, hay and more strawberry on the finish. Although somewhat simplistic in how strawberry-forward this beer is, it has some nice supplemental complexities. Lasting strawberry fruit-by-the-foot finish. 4.75/5

Mouthfeel: Medium/medium-light bodied, spot on carbonation. Juicy mouthfeel with a very dry finish. Great tartness, mild acidity. 4.75/5

Overall: Wow. So...much...strawberry. This was better than Atrial Rubicite in my opinion, perhaps because I love strawberries so much. This is my favorite strawberry sour sampled to date.

Cost: Unknown (bottle was a gift).

Serving type: bottle
