From backlog. Pale orange with medium floaty head. Lemony brettness on the nose. Taste is sour with some tartness. Medium body for the ABV and low carbo. While I’ve enjoyed other low ABV Jester Kings this doesn’t quite match up to other similar examples out there.

Leighton (11034) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Day 2, Session 2. Pours lightly hazy gold with a fine, white cream head. The aroma holds brett and dry, doughy pale malts. Light to medium sweet flavor with tangy grapefruit, melon and mildly funky brett. Light bodied with average carbonation. Very clean on the finish thanks to brett, with notes of tangerine and grapefruit. Very nice drinker.

Marheb (2059) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2013
Une arôme de douce sauvagerie, beurre, cuir, zest de pamplemousse émane d’un furieux liquide doré qui se calme rapidement. Le vieillissement en barriques est brillant, délicat, complexe et surtout impressionnant considérant le frêle 4.5%. J’adore le brett calibré de cette façon.

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Dense Cloudy gold. Smells sour & brett lemon. Definitely wild. Reminds me of Brux. More acidic and sharp. It’s still easy to drink though but the alcohol is too low. Mild barrel.

jesperhammer (2899) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2013
25-OCT-2013, bottle @Ulkløbben meeting, @Morten. Very hazy yellow/amber with lasting low yellow head. Wonder fruit aroma with peach but also funk and Whisky!. Taste the same. More bitter with hops, grape fruit, pine. Quite creamy for 4,5% with soft carbonation. Very nice drink.

Ontape (304) - Valley Village, California, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Bomber. Good not great, but very solid for a 4.5% ABV brew. Pours an opaque light orange with light head. Smell has considerable funky yeast and bugs -- right up my alley -- plus a hint of whiskey. Taste doesn’t quite deliver on that promise, more of a light saison with a moderate funk and sour but nothing serious -- not a ton of flavor here. A bit watery and pretty thin. This would be a good noon beer on a hot Saturday, drinking it after a DIPA on a chilly autumn night was probably the wrong idea -- oh well. I’ll probably pick up another one and try to do it right next time.

jstraw (1922) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Murky orange with big, flotsam, white head, fine lacing / Delicate nose of orchard, citrus & tropical fruit, straw, spice, brett / Medium body, delicate fruit and lightly sweet, somewhat watery, solid but not dramatic hopping, but dry in the middle, with good bitter finish / Mild flavors of pineapple, orange, apple, straw, coriander, light barnyard / As with most of these low abv things, the weak body ultimately lets the whole thing down, with the nose the highlight of the experience. Not sure really what the point is of a low abv 750. Make it the proper gravity, and share if need be.

Bottle at WTWBA. Hazy yellow golden pour with a white head. Delicate. Sour funk. Wheat. Smooth and easy drinking.

Modularman (129) - - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle, smell is citrusy , color is hazy yellow gold, taste is crisp citrus with a little sour, finishes clean with a little sour lemon lingering. Nice summer beer but wish there was more substance to it.....it just seems a little bland.

jookos (2163) - FINLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Bottled. Orange hazy. Fresh sharp citrus, malts and wheaty notes. Fresh, a bit acidic body. Dry with some peppery spices in the finish. Ok, but not really my thing.
