On tap at Kings last night.

mild amber with a thin white head that falls off rapidly leaving little lacing this looks solid. The nose is super strawberry, bright, fruity, jammy with a moderate seed character that adds a light acetone and tannin note. Mild lactic and lemon base sourness is noticeable. The palate opens with a big strawberry character, fruity, sour, bright, mildly jammy. The mid palate has a mild nightshade note to go with the phenolic crushed seed tannin notes that are present. Drying, tart on the finish with lingering lactic and strawberry note. Quite excellent.

Had on tap at JK. Absolutely delicious softly tart fruit beer. Perfectly smooth carbonation. Rusty orange color with thin white halo and lacing. Hints of wood, hay and barn but strawberries underlay all with some touches of stone/apricot.
Amazing.

Great strawberry fermentation. Reminds me of freshly made strawberry jam without the sweetness.

Pours a darker amber color with a noise, disappearing white head.

Smells of ripe, sweet strawberries with an additional straw and pith quality, making this not only very pleasant but complex on the nose. Has a whiff of green banana and dusty leather underneath with a whiff of floral, wooden and sweet vanilla. Just a hint of funky cream cheese is needed to act as a reminder of this being a sour beer, by adding a light tartness to the nose.

Drinks light and soft with a well fitting mineralic burst during the beers finish, making this, apart from the thirst quenching sourness, even more refreshing.

Tastes of bread dough mellowed strawberries, which appear stunningly natural in flavors. They taste ripe, mellow with an almost earthy pith quality, giving an incredible initial depth, which gets enhanced by a well rounded tartness featuring lime rind, potato peel, lighter blue cheese and a soothing aqueous softness. Finishes with a present sourness, which grants the strawberries to remain on the palate, turning a little younger and earthier with a light note of almonds.

This is another winner from jester king. The whole experience is defined by its subtlety, which allows a great flavor complexity to unfold in all its rich facetts. While this is certainly all about strawberries, it manages to be much more than a one trick pony. This is great even for people not liking strawberries in particular (that a thing?), because the fruits blend marvellously well into the beers tart foundation, producing flavors which go well beyond each ingredient.
