On tap. Aroma has strawberry, yeast funk, light barnyard notes. Taste starts tart and fruity with nice farmhouse funk, clean, floral and fruity. Light, dry and refreshing.

Blend 4 May 2017

White head. Grapefruit color. Hazy.

Strawberries up front, but not overly fruity. Tart, light sour. Very straight forward sour. Classic jester king funk. Has a berry flavor in the finish. Light bodied. Easy drinking. Well done.

I just drank Omniscience and Proselytism from Jester King, Austin, TX. It is aged in oak barrels and refermented with strawberries, ABV 5.1%, IBU 12 (according to bottle). It was just released on Friday (July 14 2017). I have not had the previous releases but based on what I’ve heard this might be the best one, and I certainly loved this one. This is a really great American Wild.

Look: Orange/amber pink hue with a quickly disappearing thin white head.

Aroma: The aroma is wheat, oak, strawberry and citrus, just a tad funk.

Taste: It’s tart, sweet, a little bit of strawberries, then comes a grapefruity flavor, some funk, and then more strawberries in the aftertaste. I should add that there's no grapefruit in there, of course, but with the tart, sweet, funk, and the slight bitterness, there's an impression of sweet red grapefruit in the middle, or perhaps strawberry with lemon. Anyway, the funk was muted so it really was not too much. It was just the right balance.

Feel: It's juicy, crisp, some carbonation, thirst quenching in the Texas heat.
