among the best jester king beers i have ever had, this is absolutely sensational. up there with atrial and the tempranillo one, just so amazing. it doesnt have a lot of head, and the carbonation is a bit light for what i look for in the style, but the flavor is positively next level. the strawberries are about as forward and natural here as i have ever known them to be in any beer, ripe, sweet, juicy, and really the essence of summer, with a funky and mature labic type beer underneath. the berries sweeten it up just enough, and the sourness accentuates the pulpy, seedy, perfectly ripe berry goodness, its on point! pink to almost unnatural red in color, very little head. sweet oak, light vanilla, lemons, red currant piquancy, floral funk, also very summery for brett, and as complex and awesome as can be, equal parts fruit and awesome beer in the flavor, and not too sour to drink a couple glasses of, at least for me. these guys do some of the most complete and special fruited wild beers anywhere in the world, and this is one of their very best in this impressive series. maybe the best strawberry beer i have ever had. after a couple of good but not mind bending jester king beers, this one was outrageously good! tons of strawberry and so natural too, wow!

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.
