Now I'm a bit of a Jester King fanboy -- their Black Metal Imperial Stout being one of the highlights of 2011, but their brewing philosophy is such that it would make Jolly Pumkin a proud Jedi to their Patawan learner. Jester King has made a sour beer that would hold up to the few -- VERY few -- wild ale brewers in the United States.
Das Wonderkind has plenty of the characteristic tart -- maybe immature peaches, bananas, and lemon -- but finishes like a beer that has had time to get settled in -- like that Cheez-Its commercial that I laugh at every time. Whence, only two months ago, Das Wonderkind was all "Knock Knock", "Who's there" "Interrupting Beer. "Interrupting Bee-" "INTERRUPTING BEEEEEEER LULZ" -- now its asserting, "Good morning sir, beautiful day, isn't it"?
And indeed, with Das Wonderkind, it is.
