Thanks again to poetryandbeer for the huge Jester King box. Boxer's Revenge pours completely opaque; sunburst orange around the edges, with a deeper and more dense brown-ish color towards the core. The three-quarter inch head fades to a chunky layer pretty quickly and leaves a merely spot or two of lacing near the top of the glass on the way down. Kind of an ugly beer, but you know the story of the ugly duckling.

The first whiff reveals a nice, complex bout of tart and funk, layered with various things such as wet hay, apple skins, wine-like booze, oak, lactic acid, grapes, and many other fruits which are kind of hard to exactly pinpoint. Definitely a lot going on here, almost too much to get a firm handle on, even. Nice tartness from the fruit and a good, wet-blanket sort of funkiness from the yeast that seem to balance nicely.

Jester King tastes similar to how it smells, but it also tastes quite heavy, or at least heavier than most wild ales I've had. And by heavy, I mean it tastes "big". It's got a strong booziness that warms up over time and gets even stronger, and it sits pretty heavily on your guts. It wasn't until after the first few sips that Mike and I looked at the bottle and realized it was 10.2% ABV... I guess that explains it.

The flavor profile is very similar to the aroma, coming through hard with apple skins, tropical fruits, grapes, lactic acidity, some mild wine-like vinegar, oak, wet hay, musty barnyard, and a dry, white wine-like finish. The booziness is mostly akin to a heavy wine, although there are some very faint whiskey tones that tend to bounce in and out. Pretty heavily bodied for a wild ale. Thick and robust mouth feel with medium-high carbonation.

Pretty tasty wild ale with a tartness that wasn't overboard and a funkiness that wasn't too crazy either. Just a nice blend of the two that's sure to please any fan of the style. I will say, the heaviness of the booze eventually started to take a toll on my palate; this beer would be difficult to drink in large quantities. Luckily, I had someone to split it with, but even a 12 oz pour was quite a bit. Good beer, but better in smaller quantities for sure.

Very excited to try this beer.

On tap - well actually out of a pitcher - at the brewery's grand opening celebration.

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is very heavy on the orange, yeast and mangos. The aroma is very strong and is very inviting.

The flavor is more of the same. In addition to some spiciness from the yeast, I get some white pepper, wheat and orange. The beer is very dry. Even though the beer is brewed with two kinds of Brettanomyces, I don't get much, if any, funk from the beer. That being said, the alcohol is very well hidden and the beer is dangerously drinkable.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

A very nice saison, I just wish it was a little bit funkier.

My Astros Challenge #BOTG 11!

Poured from bottle into JK farmhouse glass. When opened, barely even a hiss. Notably lacking carbonation. With a little bit of a rough pour, some head rises off the top of the beer, but it goes away quickly. This beer is indeed flat-ish. Other than that, a nice orange/yellow color, with some cloudiness. Smell- tart and sweet, nice vinous aroma from the barrel. Some funky bouquet as well. Taste- puckering sour with a salty dry finish. Tastes like sea salt meets sour patch candy. No ABV is present at all, for 9% it is well hidden. With carbonation, this would have been way better, but still a nice effort from JK, albeit not my fav sour from them (Das Wunderkind).

750ml bottle. A wild Texas ale, aged in wine and whisky barrels - sign me the fuck up. Thanks to Phyl21ca for the trade.

This beer pours a rather cloudy medium orange-amber hue, with two fingers of wanly puffy, yet still tightly foamy off-white head, which leaves some roiling ocean spray lace around the glass as it slowly abates.

It smells of tart, emasculated cherry and apple fruit, earthy barnyard funk, biscuity sourdough bread malt, a white wine barrel treatment fruitiness, a hint of vanilla-infused barrel woodiness, and some further tropical fruit notes. The taste is surprisingly less sour, the fruitiness spreading its wings a bit, the yeasty funk carrying on, a bready pale malt emerging, some barrel originating, tart wine (Sauv Blanc immediately comes to mind) acidity arising, with a weak earthy, besotted leafy hoppiness. A crazy lack of awareness of the heady ABV slowly becomes apparent, possibly due to the otherwise non-existent whiskey notes.

The carbonation is quite mild, and generally frothy when it chooses not to be, the body on the south side of medium weight, and as smooth as such an affair can aspire to be. It finishes off-dry, barely, the neutered sweetness just that - dead, amongst the wood, da funk, the yeast, and the cowering native hops.

A pretty well rendered affair, with so much exploratory brewing prowess, all of which falls suitably in line. Woody, funky, fruity, and rather pleasantly not boozy - that, mis amigos, is the most newsworthy effect here, amongst stiff competition. Totally worthy of investigating - ok, drinking carefully, should you get the chance.

750 mL bottle poured into a tumbler.

Appearance - Murky orange with a nice white head. Nice collar and wisps.

Smell - Lots of brett. Oaky. Acidic. Pale malts.

Taste - Oaky. More sour than the nose implies. Less brett with lots off strange acidic flavors. Oaky hoppy finish.

Mouthfeel - Heavy body. Not overly sour. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Complex but not in the best way all the time. Forgivable though.

Blend #4, bottled on 6/6/13
Poured into a standard tulip glass.

Appearance: (4)
Pours an opaque light brown/amber with some nice orange highlights. An off white, tightly bubbled 2 finger head quickly forms and recedes at a good pace. The head leaves little to no lacing as it recedes.

Aroma: (4.25)
As as the beer is poured, huge aromas of ripe red berries fill your nostrils. Notes of juicy peach, pineapple and blood orange begin to surface alongside the berries as beer warms. A lactic tartness makes itself know immediately with it's characteristics of cherry pie filling and plum skin. There is a mild, musty barnyard funkiness alongside the mostly fruit forward nose. Along with some faint bread-y-ness, some soft notes vanilla and coconut from the bourbon and wine barrels round out the nose.

Taste: (3.75)
Immediately, as soon as the beer lands on your palate, you're blasted with clean, lactic acidity; predominately notes of tart cherries, berries and lemon juice. Following this tartness are some notes of citrus and a lightly herbal hop character. The beer finishes dry, tart and bitter with a touch of bready maltiness. Long, lingering notes of bitter lemon peel, faint musty earth, coconut, vanilla and wood tannins. A tad boozy on the back end; noticeable bourbon barrel characteristics.

Mouthfeel: (4.25)
Heavy bodied with a creamy texture. Moderate carbonation.

Overall: (3.75)
A wonderfully aromatic sour.; definitely one of the fruit forward(without having actual fruit added) that I've ever smelled. Unfortunately, most of the fruity aromatics are not carried over in taste; Most of the juicy, tropical yeast driven characteristics that are there in taste initially, are quickly overwhelmed by barrel presence and hop character. This is a very unique sour beer.

Served from bottle into a Mikkeller Teku. Poured a vibrant yellow-orange with a one finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount vey slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, orange zest, citrus, orange soda, and funk. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, funk, citrus, orange zest, orange, and subtle spice. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. The orange note I picked up on in this one was really quite nice and made this one quite easy to drink. The funk was definitely present throughout the glass which was very well incorporated in all aspects. This one was quite easy to drink and refreshing. Definitely a well done brew that I am glad that I got the chance to try and would love to do so again.

Murky like muddy pond water, orangish brown color in the light, with two fingers of foam initially. Sticky sheets of foam in the glass, wispy skim across the surface.

Nicely woody aroma, lightly fruity with some citrus and vaguely tropical notes. Lightly acetic. First impression is more Oud Bruin than anything.

Taste has some sharper acetic acid initially, moving into tannic bitterness, with flashes of fruity citrus in the middle and trace farmhouse funk. Aftertaste of white grape and starfruit. Carb seems low, the acidity carries it along though. Kinda reminded me of a La Folie/Le Terroir blend.

Perfect pairing with Humboldt Fog.

Cheers, willandperry!! Been wanting to try this one since it's release.

Appearance. Pours a cloudy honey-gold with just a little amber and a thin, bubbly white head.

Smell. A nice strong floral and honey-sweetened, light fruityness. There's a little funky brett and some old wood, but that floral fruity smell is pretty nice.

Taste. Sour grapefruits, oranges, lemons, sweet pineapple and pears, along with some almond-like, bitter fruit seed flavours. There's a bit of nice tannic wood and light brett that comes out as it warms up a little.

Mouthfeel. Thin and just a little bit astryngent, really low carbonation.

Overall. An interesting, higher abv wild with some good sour citrus going on. Pretty easy to drink and at this abv, feeling pretty fine already. Digin' it.

Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a medium size foamy head with limited retention and not much lacing. Aroma of tart and oak notes with some light funky ester is quite nice. Taste is also dominated by tart and oak notes with some funky ester with low level of acidity. Hops presence had pretty much disappeared which is no surprised considering the age of the bottle. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Quite complex beer that retained some good drinkability.

Had this on tap at their grand opening party. They poured it into my shaker pint glass and then I poured from that into a mini snifter. I had an option of getting any of their beers and I got this one twice in a row. That's gotta say something, right?

The beer was a hazy gold. I would have liked some more clarity on it, but it wasn't bad. It had a dry, white head that dissipated somewhat quickly, but I blame the pouring from pitchers for that.

The beer smelled like a citrusy farmhouse ale. Definitely had the saison notes, but I could have used more funk form the brett and wild Austin yeasts.

The taste was quite a bit like my last saison-brett homebrew. You can tell they used the 3711 Wyeast saison yeast as the primary eater of sugars. It hit all that I wanted out of that. As it finished, I got an orange-peel citrus spike. Made it somewhat sweet for how dry it was and didn't quite give me the funk I wanted. I think this could have used a bit more time in the barrels.

The carbonation was fine (which is better than I could say for some of the other times I've had their beers) and the weight was good in my mouth. Is was incredibly easy to drink, even if you don't look at the high ABV. After getting e first glass, I wanted another to go along with my dinner... and that says everything I can about the drinkability.

This was a good beer, but I think with some more effort and time it could be great. Come on Jester King, hit the funk out of the park!

Opaque, hazy, orange pour. Head was easily 2 fingers. Lacing was minimal and sporadic. Looked good in the JK snifter for sure!

Aroma is spice, spiciness, yeasty, mildly tart and fruity with a fair amount of hops.

Taste was lightly tart, hoppy, earthy, spice, sweet malts and a bitter-tart finish.

Light to medium in body, crisp, slightly creamy texture.

Drinkability is fairly good. Not being a particular fan of sours, the tart qualities are mild and tolerable for me!

Pours clear vibrant orange. A small bubbly white head that fades quickly. A touch of lacing.

Tart aroma. Light gueuze like aromas of hay, lemons and grape. Slight hint of the oak and whiskey.

Semi-strong lemon/grape tartness up front. Earthy and funky hay/grass with a little pinot grigio flavor through the middle and finishes with some oak and whiskey in the back end. Really pretty good until the aftertaste where the whiskey doesn't fit well with the other flavors.

Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Hides the ABV pretty well. Finishes dry.

Have yet to really be impressed by a Jester King beer. This one is so close. I'd love to try a version that leaves out the whiskey barrels. I feel the base flavor profile and the wine barrels create a delicious combo, but the whiskey butts in at the end and completely clashes leaving an muddied aftertaste and overall lowering the enjoyment of this beer.

Poured from a bomber into a stemmed tulip glass and shared with friends.
Big thanks to Seblp for the bottle!!

Nice copper color with a big foamy head and decent lacing. The nose on this brew is strong and has a lot of sourness right out of the gate with a some funk; some oak and maybe some tart citrus rind, grass/hay, earthy. The flavor kicks like a mule though and is face-melting sour...but in a good way! This is a massively sour ale with plenty of funk and on the finish some more subtle notes of the farm, earth, grass and hay. A delicious beer, but I am glad I had help with this bottle!

Consumed 6/9/13

Big thanks to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this beer. I think this is his 600th review on BA?

Appearance: Deep. cloudy, hazy golden orange - pours with a creamy white head, slowly fades to a solid, white cap - leaves some nice patches of lacing

Smell: Weird and wild, which apparently is common across Jester King saisons/wild ales - some interesting fruity notes - light fruits, with some citrus - some interesting, woody, barrel... things - doesn't smell like the woody "spirals" like some other Jester King beers, but rather some old oak and some white wine - a lot of yeasty, tart, funky, sour aromas here

Taste: Damp, wet, lactic sourness and a lot of earthy, dirty, saison-like flavors - some barnyard, tart, yeasty dryness - oak, and a lot of white wine flavor - some whiskey in the background - some sourness, but this is more funky saison than a sour - caramel grains, pale malts - dirty, earthy, damp flavors, but it finishes dry and pretty clean

Mouthfeel: Medium body, nicely carbonated, mostly dry finish

Overall: Revenge is ours?

This is a strange beer... The previous sentence loses some significance considering I've pretty much said the same thing about every single Jester King beer. Personally, I think this is somewhere between an American Wild and an American Saison. There's a lot of wood, white wine, tart, funk, and barrel in here. Definitely worth a checking out.

SOUR.

Very nice sour beer. Pours a nice amber beer, and really has little head. Smell is very subdued and yes, you can tell it has those funky agents in it. Taste is great. Not overly sour, but sour enough. Has a bit of dryness toward the end. Lots of fruits involved. Light beer also.

4.27/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: golden-amber color with a slight haze and very thin cream-colored head. Had to pour vigorously to get even a ¼” head of loose bubbles that all but disappeared immediately. No lacing.

S: Slight musk buried beneath citrus and oak. Some grape notes in there too. A longer sniff reveals a hint of caramel sweetness that supporst the other components.

T: Mmmmm….fruity and tart to start with, but not puckeringly sour. A mild funkiness carries throughout. Nice pithy citrus bitterness kicks in mid-palate and lingers throughout the finish. The wine- and whiskey-barrel aging show through in the taste; the first breath after swallowing reveals plenty of oak notes as the back of the throat, and the fruity components of the flavor definitely carry a sharp, vinous quality. Fairly dry finish that still leaves some grapefruit rind bitterness along the sides of the tongue, and very light whiskey sweetness on the back of my tongue. The alcohol is well-hidden, but still discernable in this fresh bottle. The overall taste leaves me wanting more immediately after each sip!

M: medium to full-bodied with just barely enough carbonation to keep it from being syrupy. The tart character of the flavor also aids in keeping Boxer’s from being too heavy on the palate.

Overall: Simply put…I really dig this beer. The flavor starts off tart and simple, but becomes more complex through the middle, wrapped up again in simplicity by the end. Another very solid offering from JK!

Two small tasting cups at Cotteridge Wine during a 6th July Black Country Bus Trip (sorry if I stole someones cup, but I needed two to rate/review it correctly).

Dark yellow/orange body that was hazy: the head never really stood a chance with so many small cups to fill from each bottle.

Lemon tree aroma and also in the taste: a bit more complicated than that but a ’Lemon tree’ has complex smells, esters and thoughts.

A bit too sour for my palate but I know plenty of ’sour pussies’ who would love this. I’ve tried to score objectively.

Pored from a bomber into a pirat tulip glass.

Appearance: Poured a dark golden hazy amber with a fingure of head. I guess I poured more agressive than other drinkers because I had no problem getting head. (haha)

Smell: Wine up front, fruit and oak/musty wood notes also. Fruity and earthy floral scents are also detectable.

Taste: When right out of the frige all you get is sour and bitter hops. As it warms sour raspberries and orange, wine and a little floral notes dominate. Lambic and tartness also apperent. After taste is sweet, almost like honey. A little hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Mostly smooth, a little seems to bite and hang in your mouth, maybe that's the alcohol but I don't know for sure. Decent carbonation.

Overall: Pretty damn good I would say, has a decent about of alcohol so you will feel good after knocking back a bottle. A good sour taste but it's not overly sour, would seek out again if it was easily found in Houston. Would like to see if aging has any changes in flavor.

750 mL bottle with old school gold cap (no logo), guessing this is from a batch from 2012 sometime. Pours a mostly clear dark gold (bordering on copper) color with a very small amount of carbonation or foam. Does still have some bubbles rising contiually from the bottom of the glass though.

Nose is wonderfully tart and sour. So much so dont even get so much as a whiff of the 10+% ABV. Nice...definitely the 'sourest' smelling JK beer I have had.

Ahhh, I've been waiting for a beer this sour from LK for quite some time; its fairly puckering. Not as clean of sour flavor as a Cantillon, but still drinks quite nice. A little bit of woody character comes out from the time spent in barrels (I get more wine barrel than whiskey) along with a hint of brett. Mouthfeel definitely could use some more carbonation. This is a pretty darn good beer now, but I am excited to see how it progresses as JK gets better at blending. Im amazed a beer this light in malt and body can cover such a high alcohol with ease.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orangish amber color with a layer of fluffy white head. The head sticks around fairly well and leaves some lacing on the glass.

Smell: Very sour and just a bit sweet. There is definitely a fruity undertone along with some alcohol. In the very end I'm getting some barnyard like funk.

Taste: Just like the smell, the sourness dominates here. Some fruity undertones here as well with a strong barnyard sourness at the end of the sip. I'm getting some wine notes in there as well. The finish has a touch of bitterness along with the sourness from the rest of the sip.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with very mild carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This was a really interesting sour. Lots of complexity. I really enjoyed the wine notes very much. I don't think the whiskey added much here. I would definitely have another bottle of this one.

The brew is aged in oak whiskey and wine barrels with multiple strains of wild yeast and bacteria and exudes a rustic earthiness as soon as you open the bottle. The beer holds a myriad of flavors that meld into a wonderful and unique experience. You can definitely pick up the whiskey and wine oak aging on top of the funky sourness and earthy barnyard qualities. Wrapping all these flavors is a hop blanket that weaves in and out of all the flavors and lingers on your palate. This is just an all around fantastic beer. None of the flavors overpower you, the sour fruits and barnyard funk hit the right notes with the hoppy bitterness and oak keeping everything in tune. Surprisingly smooth and drinkable for such a high ABV brew and opening my palate to a larger world of sour and funky beers.

A - Pours a hazy, orange color with a foamy off-white head. Slight lacing on the glass like ocean spray.

S - Right away I get a nice sour cherry, green apple and dry white wine aroma that quickly leads to wet hay and barnyard funk. I love the competing balance of tart and funk. The alcohol is just barely detectable, but there's a slight heat on the nose.

T - Starts with green apple, lemons and some dry, sour grapes followed by Brett and an earthy, wood characteristic. Finishes with a sharp, peppery bite. There's no discernible alcohol which is incredible given it's 10.2%. There are so many flavors going on and the balance between tart and funk is great.

M - Moderate carbonation that just provides a bit of a prickly bite.

O - This is delicious and wonderful. Tart but still retains that distinct Jester King funk from the yeast. I could probably spend more time trying to discern some of the flavors, but I'd rather just enjoy without thinking about it too much.

Second or third time trying this horsey beast. Blend 5.

A- Last pour from the 750ml reveals a chunky murked light amber brew. Creamy white cap to over a finger with good retention. Spotty lace here and there.

S- Fruity and funky horse bomb out the gates with huge barnyard and sour bacterial notes. Wine grapes are big time leading to oak, pie cherries, green apple and earthy.

T- Very much like the nose to me but a sour lemon flavor becomes powerful. Funky barnyard, sour passionfruit stone fruits, green apple, grapefruit, cherry pie with pits, spicy earthy bitters and fresh winey oak and huge white wine.

MF- Dried out light end body like many Wilds with a crisp and somewhat foamy body. Sour finish.

For me the standout flavors in this brew are the barnyard funk and the wine barrel. They compliment each other rather well and lay down the framework for sour, earthy and fruity flavors to live on. Whiskey barrel I do not find.
