Love love love love this beer. It is a vielle saison and it is my kind of sour. Beautiful gold pour with a small head and intricate lacing. Smells like a lemon orchard crossed with a hay bale. Taste is refined. Sour, but not pucker-your-lips sour. Highly drinkable. What little hops are there seem to make the beer cleaner and fresher. This is not only my favorite beer that Jester King makes, it is the best saison I have ever had.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Cloudy, Dirty Golden, almost no carbonation or lacing

Smell: Beautiful, Floral is an understatement, Potpourri, Like Michaels Art Store, Like a Comfortable old musty hobbit hole you never want to leave

Taste: Once it reached 54 degrees it was like Fireworks on the tongue, Subtle Explosions in my mouth of fruity tartness. A Beautiful mustiness, Rustic Glory, Lemony, hints of green apple

Mouthfeel: Little to no Carbonation, Light

Overall: This one is up there with Boxers revenge but so subtle and elegant need more than a bottle to be pick up all the subtle flavors. Just let it warm and open up and it is a beautiful sipper

Bomber poured into Jester King tulip.

Hazy light copper color, turning more to amber where the light hits it. Sizable initial head fades fast but does not disappear completely. Moderate lacing.

Lots of tart fruit and farmhouse funk in this one. Lemon and green apple come through the strongest. Some oak notes come through on the nose.

Immediate hit of tartness followed by fantastic sour notes that linger on the palate. Lots of earthy funkiness underlying both. This is very drinkable, but really rewards being sipped slowly and letting the flavors develop. Jester King bills themselves as a 'farmhouse' brewery and this beer really captures why that fits them so well.

Mouthfeel is light to medium with just enough carbonation to give a crisp finish. Think nice champagne.

If Jester King didn't make this in such limited quantities then I'd consider it their signature beer. The degree of tart/sour flavors here may make it a bit much for anyone who's not a fan of the style, but for those who are or are willing to give it a try this is well worth seeking out.

Served from a 750 bottle into a stemmed Hill Farmstead tulip. Cellar temp.

Appearance- Crystal clear golden color with quick foamy white head that left some nice lacing.

Smell-Funky yeast, lemons, green grapes, grass, light oak. Real nice and earthy.

Taste-Lemons, light cider vinegar, green apples, funked up oak, vanilla, list goes on and on. Nicely tart and funky with fruit forward flavors and a nice bitterness at the end. Reminds me of a white wine.

Mouthfeel- Pretty well carbonated with a super light body. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

Overall-Real nice oak aged tart saison. Super light which is great and not too yeasty. Greast saison.

A: The beer pours a cloudy golden body with a thin white head that quickly disappears to nothing.

S: To me this smells freaking amazing. I get that strong amount of sourness, some wheat and a little bit of sweet fruitiness.

T: Like the smell, I am getting a strong amount of sourness, a decent amount of wheat and a little bit of sweetness.

M: There is a strong amount of carbonation on the back of the tongue and the tip of the tongue. Sort of has a champagne type mouthfeel.

O: Just another great beer by Jester King!
