look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Pale hazy yellow with a nice head upon pouring that dissipates quickly with no lacing. Sour lemon, grass and farmhouse funk are the initial aromas I pick up. A lot of "earthiness" in the smell. The flavors are sour citrus fruit, funk and a bit of spicy dryness one expects from a farmhouse ale. The oak is extremely subtle to my palate. If I didn't know there was oak, I don't think I would pick it up. Prickly from the acidic qualities and appropriately carbonated.

Another home-run from Jester King. Perfect earthy funk and spicy dryness paired with sour fruits make this beer perfect for a warm summer day in Texas.
