Jester King Provenance with Oranges and Grapefruit

ProvenanceOrange

The Jester King Provenance beers are a series of dry, highly-attenuated, authentic farmhouse ales, brewed with Hill Country well water, malted barley, malted wheat, hops, and fermented with a unique blend of brewer’s yeast, native wild yeast, and native souring bacteria.

This variation uses Oranges and Grapefruits. The other two use Lemon/Lime and Tangerines/Clementines. Really enjoyed this one. Here’s my full review:

Final Rating: 4.22/5
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Jester King stemmed glass.

Pours a super hazy golden yellow body with a big frothy white head that sticks around for a while, leaving blotchy lacing.

Aromas are fruity and tart – sour apple, ripe bananas, oranges, zesty citrus and lime, Belgian style spice and farmhouse yeast.

Starts off tart, sour citrus; lemony with grapefruit, oranges and bananas, peppery spice, wheat and farmhouse funk on the finish. Aftertaste is tart. Refreshing on the tongue, easy to drink with low carbonation.. a little more carbonation would have beefed up the crispness.

Overall, as for with most of the Jester King wild ales, I am very pleased with this beer. Super balanced and complex, very easy to drink. Wish I was in the JK distro!
