what more can you ask of a beer. this is quite possibly the best beer ive ever had, certainly the best in recent memory (since my mid august fou foune). drlovemd87 deserves a shout out for bringing this rarity over. lets start with the color, holy goodness, I have never seen a beer so radiantly ruby red in my life, the color of raspberries mashed in a mortar and pestle right after being picked, hints of pink highlight the reds, looks like fresh jam. bright and gorgeous. show me a prettier fruit beer, ive never seen one. small but sturdy white head, not stained pink in the least, impressive and sexy like whipped topping. now the smell. oh oh oh the smell. tart and mouthwatering like raspberry jam, acidic lacto bacterial fermentation notes too, but not overpowering, and no vinegar at all. its funky, but its summery too, and seemingly perfect for fall. the fruit is so fresh I can taste it, the quality shines through here. the taste is even better than the nose, everything I want and nothing I don't. perfect. I never give perfect scores, and I have to here, no place to improve in taste. the berries are forward but not at al sweet, the sour elements are all lined up, pucker and dry, but not burning or angry, just balanced, still supremely drinkable, not too much alcohol, just right. no gimmicks. carbonated like a champagne, it really pops off in my mouth. cant believe how alive and active this is, and how there is not a lick of residual sugar here, its dry and fruity as it finishes. the robustness of the berries and the balanced yet complex sour flavors are the takeaways for me, and that color of course. its like absolutely nothing else out there, and I would kill to have a steady stream of it. never thought I liked fruited beer, so if you are in that boat, this is a life changer. worth every bit of hype, trade value, and praise it has received and then some. it takes a lot to blow me away these days, and jester king has done just that. it is the standard by which all fruit beer, and maybe even all sour beer will no be measured. as close to perfect as they get. wow, just wow. stop at nothing to acquire this, contact me if you've got extras. my appetite is now insatiable
