3.35/5 rDev -17.5%
Very hazy apricot look. Little carbonation to see through the unfiltered body. Small head does fade away.
Smells like the funk I had hoped it would! Leather, sour citrus rinds (apple), some perfume.
Whoa sour and tasty, barnyard herbs, sour white grapes, vanilla, oak, acidic but nearing a vinegar aspect I wish wasn't so prevalent. Not a fan of sour ales as far as the style goes (this is pretty much my first), but this brewery is interesting to me. Maybe the artwork drew me in. I much prefer their heavier stout, but for what this wild ale is, it's somewhat complex and I still enjoyed trying it.

On cask at the Hey Merchant in Houston, TX.
A: Pours a cloudy/hazy golden/yellow color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Light lace is left behind.
S: Up front is a sour and funky twang. Slightly acidic. Plenty of passion fruits, pineapple, and lemon aromas that are nice.
T: Follows the nose with the funk, sourness, and passion fruits. Though seems to be lacking . Nothing in the finish, and just feels empty. Needs more "umpth".
M/D: A light body and carbonation Pretty watery and thin. Easy to drink. I can put a few away if I wanted to.
This is almost a great funky/tart Saison. Not there yet. Very enjoyable, especially with the low alcohol. Though not among the better versions of the style IMO. Still very nice and worth a try.

Jester King Das Wunderkind! Sour saison. 750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Appearance: Pours a hazy golden honey color. Off-white head.
Aroma: Tart and funky. Starts off with freshly cut lemons and then turns to floral perfume-like. Light fruits such as green apple.
Taste & Mouthfeel: Does not taste like any sour I've had before. It's very thin and watery in the mouthfeel. You can hardly taste the sourness, or the saison characteristics that well. Lightly carbonated.
Overall: Very quaffable for a sour. Could use a slightly higher carbonation to give it a crisper mouthfeel. Was expecting a bit more taste-wise judging from the aroma, but all in all 8.5/10 and quite refreshing.
