Nice and tart lemon, orange with oak and peppery finish. This beer goes down smooth and making you want to try it over and over again. Great job of blending.

JStax (2772) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2014
750 ml bottle thanks to errl. Pours a clear yellow with a fizzy white head of foam. The aroma has nice citrus notes like lemon zest and oranges, but there’s also a musty, earthy quality coming through. The taste is not really sour, but it’s on the verge of it. Maybe just a touch tart, but more musty would be how I describe it. Medium body with medium to high carbonation. It was a nice way to break up the heavy beers we had opened so far.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle, 75cl. Thanks Sølve. It pours a hazy unclear orange colored body and a small white head. The aroma is pretty lovely, wonderfully funky, with orange peel, pine cones and black pepper. Equally lovely flavor, a nice bitterness chiming in. Some yeast, lots of oranges and pine cones.Dry, effervescent and medium bodied. Lasting finish. Sure a refreshing and tasteful one, hope to see it again. 140329

tom10101 (2612) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). From SlovakSniper, thanks! Hazy golden with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma is mainly of brettanomyces along with plenty of fruits (apricots, citrus), nice funk, light tartness and floral presence. Taste is very fruity with brettanomyces, leather, wood, nice tartness, minty notes and a light floral presence. No alcohol feeling here, it’s drinking like a 4% abv beer. Light body. Low carbonation. Dry finish. Heavily drinkable despite the lack of carbonation (a little more could really help). Enticing aroma. Good use of the brettanomyces. Another good one from Jester King!
