Aromas scream of funky saison spiciness, lemon grass, sour apple cider. Flavors of lemon tartness, hay, mild biscuit, and a distinct mild hops finish. Very crisp, wonderful tartness, and awesome funkiness. At 4.5% it is easily something that can be enjoyed all night

750 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A- Golden yellow with a massive pure white head. Large bubbles give way to very fine effervescent bubbles. A light haze is apparent, but doesn't take away from the appearance.

S- Pollen, lemon stand, fresh cut grass, wheat, lemon sherbert.

T- A little tang, some definite funk; it's not overwhelming, but nicely plays into the body of the beer. Lemon, sage, white pepper, sweet orange peel. Bitterness is present but hides behind the farmhouse characteristics. Really exceptional summer flavor profile.

M- Super effervescent, but not over done. The extra carbonation helps to make this beer feel light and airy, allowing all the flavors to dance on your palate. Doesn't taste thin, as some in this style can sometimes be. This beer really relies on it's exceptional farmhouse character, without being gimmicky. Lovely.

O- I am in love with this beer. It's something I could drink everyday. At 4.5% it is superbly sessionable. This is something that all American Farmhouse brewers should strive to be more like. Balance is the key here.

This was fantastic. Poured a dark golden cidery-straw color. Limited carbonation, just a few bubbles lingering around. Big citrusy aroma, reminiscent of citron or lemon zest. Wonderfully tart flavor that just goes on for days. Pucker up and pour me one more! Another great sour from Jester King.

4.55/5  rDev +12.1%

Bottle says 4.5% ABV. Golden yellow and a bit cloudy, not the most attractive beer, thin white head subsides to a ring of larger bubbles.

Smell is fantastic, earthy brett and a hint of lemon peel and peach.

Tastes very sour, floral and dry. A bit of saison spiciness.

Carbonation is very good, and this beer feels more substantial than the ABV suggests. Jester King has done good with this one - probably the best sour I've had from a TX brewery.
