750ml bottle (thanks Mart). Clear golden color. Huge size, thick white head, stays. Ricotta, farmhouse, faint leather, fruity in aroma. Fruity, yeasty, blackcurrant skins, twiggy, moldy in taste. White wine or grape bunch roots in aftertaste. Dry mouthfeel. Nice brew.

anstei (639) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle. Really, 4.5%ABV? I would have guessed more, because it has lots to offer. White wine character, crispy fizzy carbonizated. Beautiful!

ClarkVV (4841) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 28, 2015
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.
