Thanks to JustXBeer for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour and tart with some malt, grain, fruity, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with fruity and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is refreshing and easy to drink.

Big thanks goes out to funkydelic for sharing this one at one of our Random Sunday Tastings! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured golden yellow-orange with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, butterscotch, butter, earth, funk, and mint. The flavor was of sweet malt, mint, butter, earth, fruit, and funk. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly decent brew. I have to be honest that this one was my least favorite brew from the tasting. The butterscotch note on the nose was very evident throughout the glass and this was a bit of a turn-off to me. The flavor however was comprised mostly of butter and mint. Not sure that was the best combination that is possible for a beer, but they certainly did it with this one. While I can say this was decent, I can also say that it was very close to be a complete disaster if a few more elements had gone wrong. Really glad that they blend this usually instead of leaving it straight.

My buddy acquired this beer in a trade.
This is a beautiful beer. Wonderful lacing leads me to believe that this would be a nice beer to age.

I love the smell of this beer. slightly sour, tart fruit smell, you can also smell the Brett!

Green apple taste, very soft drinkable mouthfeel considering how tart it is.
Well done Jesterking, by far the best beer I have ever tried from a Texas brewery.
