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.

3.3/5  rDev -20.7%

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.

3.46/5  rDev -16.8%

From Slowbeer no BB

A - clear light copper, one finger head, spotty lace

S - dank, earthy, musty. Citrus notes.

T - funk, earthy notes, barnyard, tinned pineapple. Integrated, and some oak/wood on palate. Very vinous, like an oaked chardonnay from the 90s. However, basically the dry finish is the dominant element

M - light carbonation for style, could do with a bit more zing. ABV 100% hidden.

O - I was expecting a flavour bomb given the ABV. Nope, think subtle and complex. And dry. Not my first Jester King and i suspect won't be buying any more due to over-dry finish across their range. I disagree with suggested serving temp of 50-55, seems to be best chilled.
