Crisp and tasty but not a very complex saison. Thereís a slight bitterness there in the finish and just a touch of tartness. Probably would be most welcome on a warm sunny day with some hard cheeses and salty cured meat.

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.

Light yellow clear pour with some lingering white head. Smell is sour and funky. Taste is a bit tart with some funk. Not getting the whiskey barrels but honestly Iím okay with that.

tomer (2427) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 27, 2015
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.

onceblind (6171) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2015
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.
