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.

The pour is a light straw color with a white head. Very lactic aroma with tons of lemon and lemon zest. A bit of straw, lightly tropical, and maybe some other citrus notes. Very mild oak. High acidity on the palate with lots of tart lemon and green apple flavors. Hints of tropical fruit and oak, minimal funk, and straw.

4.13/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a hazy apricot nectar color; hard to get much of a head to develop, though a few large bubbles cling to the edge

Smell: Bread, tropical fruit, lactic sourness, barnyard funk, Sauvignon Blanc grapes and a hint of vanilla

Taste: Bread and tropical fruit, up front, with a growing Sauvignon Blanc grape and lactic sour character that dominates the middle; after the swallow, the funk develops a bit alongside the tropical fruits; a hint of the vanilla from the whiskey barrel surprises in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied but flat

Overall: Very complex and enjoyable flavors that hide the ABV surprisingly well; too bad the mouthfeel is a disaster

Thanks, mhenson42, for the opportunity

With an incredible sense of earthen tartness, dry wood character and a shard of robust caramel sweetness, Jester King now flirts with whisky and wine barrels in order to exacerbate the savory tartness and drunken oak character of that each barrel holds.

Its appearance is a rusty chestnut brown with a haze that denotes its unfiltered charm. White a billowing sandy-stained head forms upon, it settles with clinging lace that creates a spider webbing of creep. Strong in its retention the ale seems to defy logic as sourish ales aren't supposed to have this type of foam character.

Sharp and woody aromas abound as the scent of light caramel and toffee play out upon a pecan and cashew base. Lemon, crab apple and under-ripened berries spring to live as the beer's character opens up with a tarter note heading into taste. lightly pepper with wood spice, there's a soft cedar note that is charming and perfumy.

But to taste all that delicate wood character is cast aside as the sweetness is short and its acidic tone takes hold. After that, the middle palate is alive with lemon, berry, sour grape and green apple. As the ale closes, it does so with a winey tinge, a peppery spice and a dry wood tone that celebrates all things whisky and wine.

Its mouthfeel is rounded, smooth but even dry to start. As the ale travels cross the palate it becomes increasingly dry, woodish and somewhat powdery. Like fine Merlot, the bulk of its taste is much more appreciated in finish where the perfume and cedar return and reward the palate.

Boxers Revenge is a masterfully blended ale that doesn't push the barrel aging too far but allows them to make a meaningful mark upon the ale with nuances of both wine and whisky. Despite its complexity, it's a highly palatable ale that is begging for cedar plank salmon and pecan pie!

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.

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.

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.

Thanks in part to all of the great traders that helped me amass plenty of this great beer, standuptj, dcloeren, dirtygrind (Reddit).

Pours a very light fizzy head of mostly bubbles, over hazy orange red color

Nose tart sour fruit, hint of sour cherry and light lemon, light vanilla buttery oak, light malt, light musty almost vinous quality.

Taste fairly tart sour fruit, buttery vanilla oak, hint of sour cherry and lemony like flavors, nice acidity, hint dry malt, some tannins. Finish is very dry, hint of bready malts but not much, more tart fruit, little flemmy, a bit more oak as well. This being a very high abv for a sour, but still comes off as lower abv.

Mouth is med to lighter bodied, good carb, some acidity.

Overall quite nice. A very nice American made sour, with great tartness, sour fruit flavors, good acidity and tannins, and lots of buttery vanilla oak to round it all off. And a big abv that is hidden well as lots of booze is hard to go with sours.

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.

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.

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.

The beer is light copper with ample head. A bit of a gusher. Served at cellar temp, so maybe best to chill this a bit prior to opening. The aroma offers funk, oak, white wine, earth, residual citrus. Champagne and white wine notes amid an earthy, grainy body. Very nice. A great afternoon sipping beer, which is exactly what I did. Dry finish with lingering funk. Very enjoyable.

Got in a trade with Cyde. 750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy orange amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big orange zest, lemon zest, pear, pineapple, peach, grapefruit, clove, oak, floral, white wine, grass, pepper, bread, funk, light caramel, and spicy yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity and balance of hop, yeast, and barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of big orange zest, lemon zest, pineapple, peach, pear, grapefruit, clove, oak, pepper, floral, white wine, grass, light caramel, herbal, funk, and spicy yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pear, pineapple, peach, clove, oak, pepper, white wine, floral, funk, and spicy yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance and complexity of hop, yeast, and barrel flavors; with a great malt/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium-full bodied; with an acidic, moderately crisp, slick, and earthy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent wild ale! All around great balance and complexity of hop, barrel, and yeast/brett flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for being over 10%. A very enjoyable offering.

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.

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had an orange color and a cloudy texture. There was a half inch of foamy head that lasted a fair amount of time. Below average lacing.

S: A very sweet, fragrant and enticing aroma of fruit, malt, and an oaky quality.

T: Tasted of tropical fruit, malt, a champagne quality, oak, and a vinous element. A complex, refreshing, vibrant, and powerful flavor.

M: A lot of carbonation with a smooth, yet prickly finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: Yet again, Jester King has made a big, likeable beer. Drinkable.

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.

On tap at the Anvil in Houston. Review from notes.

A: Pours a slightly hazy, but bright golden/orange color. At first a two finger white head forms that fades to a ring. The ring sticks around to the end. Some light lace as well.
S: Just an awesome aroma. Up front is a nice clean fruity aroma. Melon, orange, and other citrus aromas that are great. Zesty spice, light funk, and a light tartness as well.
T: The funk is a bit more prevalent. Lightly tart fruits that follow the nose. I get a lot of melon and citrus fruits. A zesty spice as well. Some grassy flavors and a lingering bitterness.
M/D: A medium body that is perfectly carbonated. It could be a bit dryer, but for the most part very crisp and clean. Smooth at the same time. So easy to drink. I could never get enough of this.

I really love this. Again, well done Jester King. Just an excellent Saison. I am not sure if I like this as much as Boulevard's Saisons at the moment, but I would hate to live on the difference. Highly recommended.

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

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.

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.
