3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to MikeWoj. Pours clear golden apple, small white head, dissipates quickly , some lacing. Aroma is stonefruit, skins, some oak, mineral water, light brett, hints of nail polish remover. Flavor is dry, medium tart, a bit harsh and acetonic, light funk, some dirty socks along with stonefruit, mineral water again. Light body, lingering tartness. Try as I might I just can’t get into Jester King.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours hazy and yellow with a fleeting, white head. The fruity aroma is lemony and lightly funky with only a trace of apricot. Full-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is lemony, oaken, fruity and crazy-sour. Finishes crisp, sour, lightly bready, and then dry. I can’t truly discern apricot as the fruity component, but it’s an excellent fruity character nonetheless. Thanks to landhoney for supplying this world-class beer!

Bottle shared by a friend. Batch 2 2014, poured a Slight cloudy pale yellow colour with a slight white ring on top. Fresh apricots, and stone fruits are jumping out of the glass, slight funky tart notes, yoghurt, and a spicy herbal note in the nose (Some kind of basil). Sour lactose hits the mouth with a lot of balance of sweet juicy apricot flesh. Bit to carbonated. But overall very impressing. Nice and refreshing

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a very pale yellow; the head dissipates extremely quickly leaving only a slight ring around the glass. Looks like a nice tart, British-style cider to me. Smells of fruit and wine, wild yeast, the apricot is unmistakeable. Moderately tart. A slight, underlying sweetness from the fruit; the yeast is there, too, but this is far from a funk bomb. Really nice.
