look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

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%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

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.

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.

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).

600th review on BA. Split with angrybabboon.

Appearance: Hazy dark gold. Head is white and starts off pillowy. Drops to a small collar and small wispy cap. No lacing. Slightly high carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Funky and tart. Some lemon, tangerine, orange, and pine. A ton of fruit. Nice influenced of the barrels, pushing some.vanilla and oak. Slightly vinous. Grape skin and wet funk yeast. Some damp hay and musty earth. So much muchness. Floral. A bit lactic with some.sharp citric bite.

Taste: Funky tart. Damp earth. Herbal dirt. Some floral elements. Tons of barrel influence. saturated with oak. Vanilla, toffee, caramel, grape skin, and damp grass. Musty hay and basement. Light pale maltiness. Some underlying sweetness. Peach, mango, very tropical. Underlying spiciness.

Mouthfeel: Runs on the lighter side of medium. Moderate carbonation that runs a bit lighter than I expected given the pour. Nice and clean with a slightly dry finish overall.

Overall: You're not Batman!

Decent. Not the best offering I've had from Jester King, but complex. A bit muddled in terms of the barrel and yeast influence.

Big thanks to BDavids for sharing this on with me!

A- Pours an Illini Orange (in anticipation for the start of the college football season) with bubbles coming few and far betweeen

S- Lots of sour tartness on the nose and not a whole lot else. Some citrus in there as well but that could just be more sourness. Touch of red wine in the background

T- Nice and sour! No let down in that catagory. Very acidic and the wine comes through nicely

M- Very light and watery. Could use some more carbonation

O- Good sour, not too complex but no complaints either

3.83/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance is very odd. Soapy head, looks like a sorgham beer.

The nose is much better. Very faint when cool. But random funk, coming very in and out with wine and alcohol and sugar. Not bad

The taste is with the nose, a lot of things going on, less funk than I hoped for. Too much alcohol and sugar.

Mouthfeel - oddly I feel quite a bit of puckering despite the taste. A bit too much sugar and alcohol burn (and normally I like booziness especially in autumn)).

Overall - a pretty good beer but there's so many better sours out there.

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.

2012 Release

Thanks to Lnashsig for this one

App- Looked like a glowing orb of a DIPA really. Only a small 1/2" white head was there that fizzled quite quickly and maybe left a couple dots. The thing of this is the density and clarity of the coloring of the beer. Just pops out at the eye.

Smell- Quite a lot going on in this glass. Reading the label its 10.2% and it couldve fooled me. I got none of the booze on the nose but intstead got lots of the citrus and oak aromas coming up. I guess you could say it was booze but more of that distinct wine/whiskey treatment vs. just a generic nose. Little bit of tannins on it as well.

Taste- This was a very tasty albeit, large sour beer. The pairing and dueling barrel treatments created a nice depth of flavor with some great nuances in the glass. You do get a warming feeling from the whisky barrels but at the same time you get a good amount of lactic and tannins from the wine barrels. A bit sour, a bit thick and unique.

Mouth- A very large medium body for a sour. Although with a 10% ABV I was not expecting this to be like a 'Loon or a 3F sour either. A good medium carbonation with a good amount of fruit on the finish and a bit of prickly whisky flavors.

Drink- This was a good beer. It was unique, well crafted and very flavorful. I enjoyed the duality of the treatments but I think the ABV and body needed to come down a couple touches. I would say this might get better and I might wanna go find a couple more bottles.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

unique brew here, even in the out there context of wilds anyway, this is just different. tons of yeast floaters snowglobe style in a hazy brown amber liquid with an inch of thick white head and an aroma of heavy whiskey barrels and farmy yeast. fruity notes, apples and pears, give it a sweetness, while bacterial sour notes dry it out. as far as the flavor goes, its complex as anything and well built, but im not sure the right barrel was chosen to compliment the beer itself. i miss the subtle pucker and malt balance. i get a ton of vanilla, and it clashes with the sour a bit. getting more and more funky as it warms, the alcohol strength remains well hidden, a real impressive feature of this slightly confused but very intriguing brew. fuller bodied for a sour type, and not quite as well carbonated, but the feel works fine. overall this is a one of a kind beer, but for 16 bucks a bottle its not good enough for me to justify another bottle.

Bottle purchased from WLV Liquors.

A - Pours burnt orange, small white head, thin collar.

S - Spices, bread, yeast, light citrus, honey sweetness.

T - Fruity tartness, yeast funk, citrus, grapes, and oak. The alcohol is hidden wonderfully for 9%. The finish is tart grapes/oak. The taste was much more sour then the nose suggests.

M - Light body, good carbonation, dry finish.

O - Easy drinking for 9%, nice amount of sour notes, and a nice dry finish. Enjoyed this one for sure, and would buy another bottle if I have the chance.

750ml, Batch 1 I think
Unmarked tulip

A: Pours a yellow orange color. Ring of bright white head. Some lacing bits. Head faded quickly but there was carbonation.

S: Nose is less aggressive than expected. There is certainly funky notes. That Brett character is there. It's sour but not super sour.

T: It's sour but not as sour as I expected. Nice tart hit on the tip of the tongue. Mellows in the mid mouth. Smooth funk and oak. Hints of vanilla. You do pull that barrel character.

M: Medium bodied. Good carbonation but not overly.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass.

The beer is sort of a dark orange with some yellow highlights. I had to pour fairly aggressively to get some head going. The head is white with big ol' bubbles.

Lots of barrel character lends itself to some wood and vinous qualities. It's got a nice fruitiness about it(mango and pineapple).

The tart and funky qualities aren't hiding here. Mmm. Vinous and granny apple type tart flavors. A touch of wood.

Not much carbonation at all. The body is medium.

Can't wait for the second batch of this to come out. An improved level of carbonation could give this beer quite the face lift it needs. It has a great flavor profile working for it as is.

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.

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.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.

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!

High acidity on the palate with lots of tart lemon and green apple flavors. Hints of tropical fruit and oak, minimal funk, and straw.

Thanks to mhksuccess for sharing this one at my tasting.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with some malt, wine, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with a nice acidic quality on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

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.

750ml bottle poured into a snifter. The brew appears a clear copper color with a white froth that paints the glass with a full wall of lace.

The smell is quite wild and enjoyable with a very fruity, lemony and tropical feel. Some oak suggestions mildly boozy with caramel and hints of vanilla sweetness.

The flavor includes vanilla with lemony lacto tartness. Some bittering hops give way to tangy vinous notes. Funk and raw oak and some tannins tingle with alcohol and a raw oaky character towards the back.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is boozy yet the barrel quakity is evident and interesting. I am typically distracted and find high alcohol in wild beers to be clashing. However, it really worked in this brew.

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.

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.
