3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2015 750 mL bottle, March 2013, blend 4, drunk 11/28/15.
Clear, coppery blonde color with a moderate amount of white head that sits at cover.
Light, mild brett, floral hops somehow still apparent. Minor oxidation and light lactic acid. Cream of wheat and vanilla. No alcohol or flaws.
Heavy, heavy bile flavor, way too much autolysis. Sharp, flabby and lightly saccharine-like. Obviously sat too long, though itís still nicely carbonated. Will definitely try again soon w a fresh batch. Itís strange how variable Jester Kings beers age. Some are unbelievably pristine at 3-4 years old and others range from undrinkable to just ok at ~2 years old.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught, almost no head, mellow yeasty aroma with some fruit and just a funky hint, flowery flavor, medium shrubby bitterness and a bit of vinegary sourness that becomes stronger, bitter but not too hoppy. Good.

Hazy hay hued with a thin foamy white head. Huge meaty and peppery nose, funky saison and grassy tones. Great peppery and blonde malty flavor with a bit of cured meat and earthy funk. Lovely.
