750ml Batch #2 into Jester King stemware.

A - Pours a hazy golden orange, thin white head, decent bubblies, which is very good to see.

S - Funky sour, with faint whiskey barrel notes.

T - Sour fruits, very lemony, with boozy whiskey still detectable, slight hops. Delicious.

M - Dry and well carbonated, a step up from the previous bottling.

O - Probably my favorite Jester King offering so far, would love to see their dream of this becoming a year round on Texas shelves become a reality.

750mL bottle into a tulip glass
No bottled on or best by date

A: Pours a hazy, dark straw, golden yellow with 2 fingers width of slightly off white colored head. Decent retention. Leaves a moderate amount of cobweb lacing down the sides of the glass.

S: Tart lactic citrus, lemon-lime, sweet fruits like peach and apricot, banana, white grape. There are also hints of resinous hop bitterness. There is certainly a vinous quality,along with a tart like sournes and hints of the oak barrel. Some funk as it warms. There are so many layers to the aroma, this is probably one of the most complex noses Ive ever experienced in a beer. Needless to say, its amazing in this regard.

T: Surprisingly, there is more hop characters than I anticipated. There is also a noticeable whiskey component. There is some lactic tartness, but not to the degree of the nose, and I wouldnt even describe it as sour really. Significant hop bitterness on the finish. I also get notes of raw oak, citrus rind, herbaceous/grassy characters, booze, hints of barnyard funk. Quite complex as well. Very good, I would have liked more tart sour notes, but thats just personal preference.

M/D: Medium bodied, pretty heavy carbonation which goes well with the fuller body, not thick but maybe a touch syrupy at times. ABV is well restrained (boozy notes are there but add well to the flavor profile rather than detract from it). Drinkability is very good.

O: My first beer from Jester King, and needless to say I am impressed. So complex, yet so drinkable. I would have preferred a little more sour kick, but Im just nit picking. This beer is awesome. Highly recommend.

Not a real fan of sours, but I loved this one.

A: Hazy orange body that is topped by a soapy 2 fingered white head that dissipates quickly reducing to a thin ring around the top of the glass.

S: Tart, funky, tropical fruits like mango, hints of spice with subtle whiskey notes.

T: Follows the smell very closely. First sip is strong in the sour department, but quickly mellows out allowing the complexity of this brew to shine. Tropical fruits are at the forefront and are balanced well with the whiskey undertones.

M: Well carbonated, medium/light bodied.

O: My favorite Wild Ale to date due to its high level of drinkability and surprisingly complex flavor. I WANT MORE!!!

I had a 750mL bottle of Jester King's Boxer's Revenge from the second round of bottling this year, poured into a tulip glass.

A - This pours a cloudy orange/light red with a good amount of white head at the top.

S - On the nose I light fruits, citrus, and yeast.

T - On the palate I mainly get the fruits that were on the aroma, some earthiness to this, having that funk that Jester King beers tend to have. And of course, it has a very nice sour edge to it on the finish.

M - Medium-bodied and it seemed to be pretty highly carbonated.

O - Another great offering from Jester King. Boxer's revenge is a wild ale/sour that delivers a ton of flavor without being too sour and leaving an unpleasant taste in the mouth. I really enjoyed this beer and I am looking forward to seeing how this beer ages.
