on tap at the tap and handle in fort collins, what a treat this is, i keep missing out on the bottles when they come to town, so this is fun. its super clear, especially for a jester king wild ale, golden and radiant, not at all hazy. a nose thats real funked out, some real tangy lacto sourness to it, but in jester king fashion, its a saison too, very dynamic on the yeast and bugs, these guys do that as well or better than anyone. the rye part is there, its killer too, spice that works with the saison side of the yeast, and the texture to make it big enough for its abv and flavor depth. the ipa side though, not so much. i find this only a little hoppy, and its all finishing hops, minimal bitterness, and not overly pungent at all. its okay though, there are enough other flavors going on here that it isnt missed, and although more hops might make this delicious too, it really doesnt miss them. the yeast for me is what makes this beer, and it may be oak aged, as it had a definite wood profile to it, natural and a little sweet in the middle, but very mature and rustic. carbonation may be just a tad low on it, but the acidity with all the flavor is just right. a real cool take on a rye beer, as classy as all the jester king stuff, one of my first on draft from them, and a real nice treat. oh man, i love these guys!!!

Pours a very cloudy golden color with virtually no head. A small half foamy, half carbonated head started after finished pouring, but head retention is minimal as is lacing. Has that typical Brett aroma with slight citrus and grape. Light bodied, strong Brett taste with some white wine at the. There is a mild hop to it, but not enough to really call this an IPA. Has a very tart, kind of soapy aftertaste. Not bad, but I was expecting more from this beer, given that IPAs are my favorite style.
