Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: brandon911 on 09-16-2012

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

The first Jester King beer to be brewed entirely in oak. Unfermented wort was racked directly to oak barrels and inoculated with souring bacteria. From there, it spent months aging in our barrel room before being blended with live kombucha at bottling. Unfiltered, unpasteurized & naturally carbonated through re-fermentation in the bottle.

Thanks willandperry!

Appearance. Pours a fairly clear pale straw gold colour with a finger of fizzy white head that disappears almost immediately.

Smell. Sweet wheat and some slight lactic sourness. Maybe just a little barrel wood.

Taste. Very sour with a bit of lemon and green apple, a bit of sweet wheat and damp old barrel.

Mouthfeel. Lighter body with low but fairly lively carbonation.

Overall. Reminded me of a sour berliner. Nothing bad about this beer, just nothing amazing. Refreshing and sour though. I would drink it again for sure.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very pale hazy yellow. No head.

Smell - All sorts of lemony acids. A variety of aromas. A little bit floral and grainy.

Taste - Very sour. Lemon citrus sourness. Not a lot else going on, but it's pretty good.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied. Well carbonated. Nice sourness.

Overall - Tasty beer that might have suffered from being too late in the tasting.
