Poured from a bottle generously goandpickitupformebro'd by gfg0020 into a Prairie Teku glass. Super stoked to try this.
Appearance: A pale floral yellow, with just the tiniest fizzy champagne-style head that disappears instantly, leaving behind no crown or lacing. Really clean and quite gorgeous. EDIT: Second pour from the bottle has a thick creamy head that sticks around a long time and leaves behind significant lacing.
Smell: Loads of mint, rosemary, vanilla and some vague, sugary sweetness, which is not to say I can't tell this is a sour beer by smelling it. I can, and there is some faint funk as well. Really smells delicious, can't wait to taste it. I'm not getting any watermelon specifically, but perhaps that's where the sugary sweetness is coming from.
Taste: Oh my. OH MY. This is incredibly complex. The watermelon hits hard and fast, then fades off quickly. The herbs make their presence known right after, and the fruity, lactic and mild tartness puckers the mouth along with them. The crackery malts I've come to expect from Jester King sours follow up on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is moderate to low, and this is incredibly refreshing. The mint lingers longest, having a cooling effect. I wish I could drink this stuff all summer.
Overall: Jester King knocks it out of the park, again. This beer is ridiculous, and very unique. I want so much more of it than what I've got so far. May have to go get a case later on.
