this is so delicate and good, a funky light saison with lemons and limes. the beer is super pale in color, lightly hazy and very heady, with a pungent nose of fresh lemon and lie zest, almost like a sprite soda or something, slightly sweet from the fruit but also slightly sour from it, nice with the tartness from the classic jester king yeast profile, which is now so familiar to me and so famous, one of my favorite house cultures anywhere. i love the brightness of this, some nice fruity brett matching well with the citrus, and the lemon and lime in equal proportion to one another, but perhaps with a slight edge to the lime when i really focus in, bitter and pithy to me, as well as oily and zesty. i also get light orange and green apple to this, a veritable fruit salad or white sangria here, with some cool drying sourness from the bacterial element in the fermentation. absolutely bone dry and sparkling in carbonation. the summery, almost cocktail-esque fresh lemon and lime are a nice combination of flavors. super drinkable and refreshing, another winner from one of the best!

I recently had Provenance with Lemon and Lime from Jester King. This is a pretty good Farmhouse Ale that goes well with spicy food as well as an easy drinking crisp thirst quenching beer. I had it with spicy Indian food. However, if you want more flavor and bitterness it may not be right for you.

Look: yellow semi clear wit a one inch chalk white head

Aroma: lemon and lime, and tad yeasty funkiness

Taste: It's tart, and unsurprisingly lemon and lime, more lime than lemon, some yeasty funkiness.

Feel: light and crisp

Only my second from Jester King and I'm looking forward to more from this Texas iconoclast specializing -- and seemingly succeeding -- in their focus on the Belgian tradition. (So far, none are too sour for me.)

Looks like a really friendly ale with its large bubbles. But like most exuberant expressions, that recedes and I Smell a slight funky horse blanket and the lemon/lime. Wonderfully, not as sour as I expected. Citrus is not as subtle in the Taste (and I'd prefer subtly.) But, adding wheat smooths everything out. Citrus tang and bubbly texture make my mouth Feel refreshed.

Overall ? The lemon/lime actually worked against a too sweet tomato sauce (out of the bottle, not one I'd make.) So by serendipity, Provenance went well with dinner and cut the sweet. But then, the lemon/lime stole the final act.
I might try an orange rendition of Provenance's base... but lemon/lime gives me too much pucker.
