Pours a lilac to ember red colour with a big, pink head, which vanishes immediately after pouring.

Offers a floral, herb accompanied fruitiness, which is defined by an acidic sourness, lemon peel and blueberry skin. Offers a jammy sweetness, together with dried earth and ripe sweet cherries.

Drinks truly refreshing with a perfectly nuanced combination of tartness and effervescence, becoming the most present during the beers finish.

Tastes of utmost ripe blueberries from first glance, together with a pleasant cherry jam quality and tart, subtle lemons. Turns a little dryer then, with a note of mushrooms and old, moldy basement among the still present blueberries. Finishes with a well pronounced punch of tartness, which gets easily matched by the fruits, which now appear a little unriper but still very natural and multi facetted.

What a great iteration of a blueberry sour. To me that is, because it isn‘t solely about the berries, since the flavors allow cherries, grass and earth to add in. This creates a perfectly balanced, complex beer, with a moderate, well entangled tartness, reminding me of a very well made lambic. This is how I imagined Blabaer would taste like.

Bottle dated March 2018. I like bottle, I just have to throw that out there. Colour Five pours a bright ruby red with a slight purple hue. Nose is of berry skins and earthy funk. Taste of tart berries, lemon zest, wet oak and earthy funk. It’s tart but not overly. Has a very rustic feel to it as most Jester sours do. A little light on body definitely not jammy like other examples of same style but it is very refreshing. Low carbonation. Low carbonation and light tartness make Colour Five very drinkable.

Wasnt a fan upon initial release, but just had one with about a year of age on it, and it has come along wonderfully. Flavors have come together nicely with a nice tartness to it and the sweetness is no longer overbearing.

Jammy purple color.

Lots of fruit and berries. Tart with a bit of funk. Lemon citrus.

Light bodied. Very easy drinking. Another enjoyable jester king sour.
