4.7/5  rDev +15.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

I had to make a trade with a friend in Texas to get my first bottle of this, but I was glad that I did! I liked it so much that I traded for a 2nd, shared with friends, and took some notes. Poured from a 750ml bottle into 3 wine glasses.

A - Pours a beautiful, golden / straw color with about 1/2 a finger of off white head.

S - Has a very tart smell that hits you right away, followed by some barnyard funk smell.

T - Very tart, sour, crisp and refreshing. A great beer for a warm Summer day. Also, very complex. You can taste the oak flavors from the white wine barrel aging. There is definitely a lot of funk from the Brett and several strains of wild yeast in there too. Amazing sour taste!

M - Very fine carbonation with an almost oily and buttery consistency that coats your mouth with every sip.

O - Outside of Belgium, this is the best sour I have ever had. Hands down.

750ml bottle into a tulip glass.

A soft hiss upon opening but the bottle nearly gushes, stopping short just before the foam erupted. Effervescent body is a hazy golden color, bright and yellowish with a thin wisp of off-white foam. Excellent aroma, with fruity hop notes balanced nicely with a whiff of Bretty funk and a tinge of sourness. Grassy, with barnyard hay and earth, too. The dry-hopping has really worked nicely for Das Wunderkind!

Oh wow. I am now sold on Jester King's mission of bringing Farmhouse wild ales to the imbibers of Texas. Tart notes from the Lactobacillus mesh beautifully with funky Brett and earthy, grainy malt notes. Sour grips the sides of the tongue, but not so much that the rest of the palate can't enjoy the delicate hop flavor. Crisp, medium-thin body with a perfect carbonation level. In many ways, Das Wunderkind! reminds me of New Belgium's Le Terroir---the sour, dry-hop, and funk all blend together supremely well. Really enjoyable, and at 4.2% ABV, immensely drinkable. Easily Jester King's finest effort to date.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter at cellar temperature.

L – Cloudy deep gold color with a nice 3-finger creamy, frothy, cream-colored head. Great retention and some awesome sheets of lacing.

S – There is a ton going on with this beer! I’m getting bready wheat and caramel malt, tart green apple and lemon esters, musty oak, citrus and apricot hops, and barnyard Brett funk. Awesome.

T – It starts off sweet and tart with caramel malt, apricot, green apple, and lemon flavors. Grainy wheat and peppery yeast come in next, followed by woody oak and musty Brett. At the very finish, some earthy and grapefruit bitter hop flavors appear. Very tasty.

F – Light-to-medium-bodied, good carbonation, a sticky, somewhat creamy, mouth-coating, and tart feel, and a slightly tart, earthy, funky, and very dry finish.

O – This is a great beer and a terrific saison. It’s very drinkable, sessionable at 4.5%, looks good, smells fantastic, and tastes great with a great balance between fruity sweetness and tartness, yeast earthiness and spiciness, and Brett funkiness. With so much going on, it would be so easy to create a disorganized quagmire of flavors and aromas. However, Jester King doesn’t do that. They create wonderfully complex beers that are perfectly layered – a real treat that is tough to find elsewhere. I highly recommend this one.

A - Pours into my Jester King glass hazy golden straw in color with about one finger of soapy white head that has moderate retention and minimal lacing.

S - Forefront is barnyard funk with lemon and orange citrus as well as sour cherries and grassy hops.

T - Delightfully sour and tart, orange and lemon zest, sour cherries and grassy hops, grainy malt and funky brett.

M - Tart and dry, medium body with mild carbonation.

O - This is a top notch beer from a top notch brewing company. These guys know what it's all about and know how to deliver. Highly recommend trying this if given the chance.

Big thanks to Lee for hooking me up with this one!

A: Pours a hazy golden color with orange highlights. A one finger white head forms upon pouring and reduces to a thin rung on top. Spotty lacing.

S: Definitely funky with a bit of barnyard/hay. A nice sour component with some lemon and apricot.

T: A great, tart fruit flavor hits right away with more apricot, lemon, and some green apple. A little bit of a woody/earthy flavor with nice sourness.

M: Light to medium bodied, low to medium carbonation, but drinks very easily. Had no problem drinking the entire bottle. Slightly dry finish.

O: A great beer. Almost like a gueuze with the flavor profile. Would drink this all the time if I could.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a cloudy goldenstraw color with a rather modest head that fades rather quickly though it does leave some splashy stippling behind

Smell: Tart and citrusy, with a range of fruit aromatics (lemon, strawberry and green apple); lactic sour elements build though they are complemented by a floral perfume

Taste: A range of fruit flavors (lemon, green apple and strawberry) is joined by the lactic sourness in the middle; the oak adds another dimensino, after the swallow, along with a hint of floral flavor that lingers into the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: Jester King has a real way with low ABV beers, packing them full of a range of flavors; having made my way through almost a dozen of their offerings, this one may well be my favorite

Huge thanks to wsnich for getting some of this out my way. Thanks to kjkinsey and wagenvolks for providing bottles for future tastings.

Served in a Jester King goblet.

Pours a very hazy apricot color with a short white head. Retention is fairly poor and there isn't much lacing on the way down. No cap or collar either.

What it lacks in appearance it really makes up for in aroma. From the start I get some fairly-brisk lactic notes plus a moderate amount of fruit -- mostly peach and apricot, but also a bit of strawberry. Light earthiness to the background. Very well integrated with complexities throughout.

The flavor meets the high bar set by the nose. There is light acidity at the front end, followed by a mélange of fruits and mild perceived sweetness through the palate. Some barnyard funk hits alon side some peach, melon, and strawberry. Lactic acidity is Perfect.

Body is light with nice lactic and Brett presence throughout. The carbonation is a bit low, but that's the only place I can knock it.

Great overall beer and something I would be thrilled to drink again and again.

Thanks to lnashsig for this one.

App- A very hazy golden yellow with soft orange highlights. A very quick fading 1/2 white bubbly head with zero cling.

Smell- A soft sour with punchy fruit, yeast and a thick malt backbone. Retains the wheaty soft and light Saison notes but is dominated by the sour.

Taste- Well, for 4% this has some great flavors. I get some apple, sour candy, orange and lemon citrus sour. On the back more yeast and wheat saison with a good balance and small pockets of flavors.

Mouth- A very light and grainy body with a light and fresh cabonation. Left huge residual sour notes and citrus orange and lemon.

Drink- Very good. Highly drinkable and small. Big pockets of sour and a balanced yeasty, wheat like small saison. Ive enjoyed the small drinkable sours.

Bomber into a 25cl Duvel tulip. Big thanks to Dan for sharing this one.

A: Cloudy orange body with a thin, fine off-white head. Not all that great.

S: Bright, fruity, vibrant. Tart lemon + lime, sharp blue cheese, and grassy hay-like funk. Really nice.

T: Even more sour than the nose, with lovely fruitiness and citric acidity ahead of some vegetal, earthy funk. Vanilla and dry tartness on the finish. Excellent.

M: Moderately light-bodied with vigorous carbonation. Nice and lively.

O: Really, really tasty little sour. Refreshing, complex, and easy-drinking. I'd love to have it again, and look forward to trying more stuff from this newly funkified brewery.

Cheers!

A pale yellow color with a tall white head. Starts off with a mild lemon nose and some tart melon. Great wine aroma and a moderate funkiness, mostly straw and grass, maybe a hint of must. The flavor is more enjoyable than the nose. Great lactic tartness with some white grape, wine, and a hint of green apple. A light citrus note, plenty of straw and grass, and a bit of oak. Really an all around great beer.

4.33/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance- A cloudy, orangeish golden color, with a moderate soapy head. The head recedes quickly and does not leave much of a ring. Peppery sediment evident on the bottom. There is a small amount of lacing, which is nice for a 4.5% beer.

Smell- Green apples and pears from the wine barrels, lacto, wheat, some spiciness, lemongrass. Very nice.

Taste- Very refreshing first sip. Tart apples fades into a mild wheaty backbone. Wine barrel dryness evident at the finish demands I take another sip. Not overwhelmingly sour, more tart, although there is some acidity. Hops provide a background bitterness, but are not very prevalent.

Mouthfeel- Light carbonation allows the barrel and sour notes to take center stage. Very light in the mouth, not very viscous. The main sensation is the dryness from the barrels and brett.

Overall- Liked this a lot. Probably my favorite Jester King offering I've had. It strikes a good balance in the saison and sour notes. A little like a Berliner weisse with more barrel notes and a stronger wheat base. Very drinkable and leaves the palate wanting more.

Big thanks to huskermike for throwing this in as an extra. Pours a light-orange sunburst, hazy and cloudy like any saison ought to be, with a a big-bubbled, light white head that grows big and settles quick with some wet legging left behind.

A big cloud of funk blankets the entire aroma, under which lies a collage of tart fruits; apples, grape, maybe even some lemon zest. The fruits have a tartness to them, as well as a light vinous character that's floating around somewhere.

Slightly vinegary and acidic on the aroma as well - this one definitely smells like it's gonna be tart. The funk overcast is comprised of some oak, wet hay, musk, cork, and a solid handful of yeast. Pretty spot on for a saison, I'm really digging the way this smells.

The taste starts off with some damp and musky cellar-like funk at first, but a sharp tartness quickly escalates and takes over; sour apple, grapes, lemons - very acidic and vinegar like, not as vinous as the nose suggested, but there's still a bit of oak and tannin notes to be had.

There's a nice harmoniousness between the funk and the tart, masterfully balanced here, making this one super drinkable. I guess the fact that it's only 6.5% ABV helps a bit, too. The aftertaste is made up of some fading tart-turned-sweet fruits, along with a mildly wet, oaky and funky finish, dry and full of yeast. Light-medium bodied with higher carbonation.

Didn't know what to expect from this one, but I've heard good things about Jester King. So I was definitely pleasantly surprised. This was a damn good and easily drinkable saison with lots of tartness and lots of funk, especially at the moderately low ABV tag. Hell yeah!

Bottle shared by Mike (Thorpe429) in an attempt to prove that Jester King brews shouldn't be judged by their hideous labels. Served in a tulip.

A - An finger of off-white foam settles to a thin collar, topping a hazy peach body.

S - Nice funky brett, some sour lemons, mild toasted grains, crackery malts, and a hint of lotion.

T - Taste is equally enjoyable, with lemon and lactic sourness, a bit of dry wood, mild crackery malts, and some stone fruit in the periphery. Quite refreshing.

M - Smooth yet dry texture, surprisingly hefty medium body, medium-low carbonation, and no apparent alcohol. Thought this was bigger than 4.2%, so color me impressed.

D - Quite nice - if Jester King is getting these flavors from their local terroir I may need to seek out future farmhouse offerings from them. Well played Mike - this was a really nice beer that was a well-timed palate cleanser during the evening. I may need to trade for a bottle or two to enjoy during the summer months - or hopefully this gets distributed in our neck of the woods.

Served from bottle into a DogFish Head Signature snifter. Poured a hazy golden yellow-orange with a one finger white head that subsided to a half finger very slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, orange, funk, orange zest, and spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, lemon rine, citrus, funk, fruit, and lemon juice. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. While this one was not quite as robust as some from the style it managed to be very refreshing and very well balanced. The lemon note going on in this one was very nice and well incorporated. Wish more breweries would do the same with their saisons. A must try if you have not done so already.

Blend #4. March 2013

Appearance: fast fading head. Tiny bit of lacing. Golden and cloudy, like a glass of grapefruit juice.

Smell: yeasty is the dominate feature here. Followed by tart fruit such as grapefruit (again), green grapes and Granny Smith apples.

Taste: Lots of hops listed on the label in the ingredients, but they are almost non-existent. Tart (bordering on downright sour) is the main player here. Much like the smell I'm picking up on a lot of unripened fruit in a very good way. Yeast plays along well with the sour fruit.

Mouthfeel: starts off nice and juicy, and then the sour aspect kicks in and dries your entire mouth out. Taunting you in to taking another drink. So light and crisp. Maybe this is where the hops have been hiding.

Overall: I wish I would have saved this bottle for a sweltering hot, typical summer day here in St Louis but I don't regret drinking this whatsoever. Tart and dry, yet very refreshing.

Poured into a tasting glass at the Draught House 43 Anniversary party.

Appearance: Hazy straw yellow with the only head being a white ring around the center of the beer.

Aroma: Citrus, lemons, orange zest, lactic acid, and a touch of funk.

Taste: Very citrusy with subtle earthy notes and a mouthfeel with a sour finish.

Mouthfeel: Tart and acidic with a very dry lingering acidic finish that is highly drinkable.

Overall: I could easily drink this all summer, which means they need to get it bottled and on the shelves so I can do so. I look forward to being able to have some more.

On tap at the Draught House 43rd Anniversary Party.

The beer pours a cloudy yellow color with a large white head. The aroma is full of citrus notes. I get a lot of orange and lemon character, as well as a little bit of tartness and a little bit of barnyard funk. Very nice.

The flavor is similar. The orange and lemon notes dominate the flavor, but there is also a nice acidic component which adds some sourness to the beer. The two sides of the flavor go very well together and make the beer very drinkable.

Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Jester King is quickly becoming my favorite brewery.

A: Single fingered soapy white head that displayed good retention settles to a thin soapy ring around the glass leaving little lacing in its wake. The body is a cloudy yellow with hints of orange, kinda looked like a mango!

S: Barnyard funkiness is detectable but not overpowering. Sour cherries, lemon tart, and oranges are the most dominant scents that really got my mouth watering.

T: This is definitely a sour Saison. After a few sips the sourness on the front begins to mellow allowing hints of tart cherry, lemon, and bitter citrus to present themselves. Grains and spice pull up the backend and really round out this unique entry.

M: Light bodied, extremely well carbonated, fairly dry.

O: I'm usually not a fan of sours, but this one seems to be the exception. I enjoyed this beers complexity not found from competitors. I recommend this beer to anyone who enjoys sours, or to those looking to make the leap into sour beers. Holding onto my remaining bottles to see how time will affect the flavors, hoping for the best.
