Many many thanks to my buddy Will (Canadianghetto) for muling this back from Austin for me. Poured from bottle into Jester King stemware. Bottle gushed momentarily and a piece of cherry peel came out of the bottle and landed on the countertop. Wow! After a careful slow pour, it pours a rich crimson color that is hazy and almost completely opaque. Nice half finger of pink head sticks around. Brilliant looking beer. Aroma: spiced cherry pie- tart sugary bready cherries. Aroma makes me imagine cinnamon spiced tart cherry pie. Delicious. Taste- a dry, sour tart cherry flavor hits the roof of my mouth, while a puckeringly sweet candy cherry flavor hits rounds out the sides of my mouth. This is an absolute delight. Easily one of the best fruit sours I've ever had in my lifetime. Can't imagine how it doesn't earn a perfect 5 on all scoring fronts. Mouthfeel is full and rich, carbonation is tight and delivers some drying characters to the beer's cherry fruit sweetness. I'm floored by this.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - These Jester King sours are always beautiful. Bright pinkish red. Small light pink head.

Smell - Lots of cherries. Cherry pie aroma. Really nice.

Taste - Cherry sourness. Really dominates. Slight sweet cherry flavor. Grainy malt. Sour finish.

Mouthfeel - It's pretty sour, but nothing like Aurelian or Nocturnum. Well carbonated.

Overall - Really enjoyable. Delicious cherry flavor and the sourness doesn't overwhelm.

Bout One. On tap at the brewery on the day of its release.

A: A light partially cloudy red. A hint of rust/ brown in the color

S: Very strong cherry aroma. More of a cherry pie style of cherries. Slight bit of funkiness.

T: Incredibly balanced. Not as heavy on the cherries as expected from the nose, but still the dominant flavor. Sour but not overwhelmingly so. Grassy notes.

M: Medium body with medium carbonation. Tart. No alcohol detected.

O: Quite a treat from Jester King. Incredibly tasty. If only there were a bit more complexity/ character behind the cherries, I would put it up with the greats like St. Lamvinus, etc.
