COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Earthy rye and piny hop flavor and aroma meet spicy, funky characteristics from our farmhouse yeast in this American-inspired farmhouse ale.

Note: This Farmhouse version replaced the original Wytchmaker Rye IPA when Jester King switched to a farmhouse yeast for all beers. The original bottles feature a small Jester King sticker on the neck; newer bottles do not have this sticker and say "Farmhouse" in small print on the label.

Bottle from beastmaster shared after two gushing Black Damnations. This was the third gusher of the night but luckily not sour or gross. I guess the farmhouse yeast went a little crazy. November 4, 2013 dated bottle poured on Jan 25, 2014. Pours cloudy/hazy yellowish orange with a massive white head that goes on forever. Aroma of serious cat piss (in a good way), some lemon peel, some sharp bretty type aromas, and funky grass and hay. Flavor is light honey, lots of lemony citrus, a hint of spice (I assume from the rye but it is far back in the background), and a good bit of dry bretty finish. Light mouthfeel and medium plus carbonation, nice and airy and very drinkable. A nice changeup from the standard stuff out there. Solid brew.

Benfi (532) - DENMARK - JAN 25, 2014
Aroma is very floral, noble hop aroma with some rye. Taste is rye tang with some bitterness up front, hop flavor and some farmhouse funk and spice. This one is extremely well balanced.

Yorker (1190) - Herning, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2014
75 cl bottle @ home (WARNING: gusher, so open in the sink and preferably have a couple of glasses ready, unless you want to lose most of the bottle’s contents - my bottle certainly kept gushing for a while). Pours hazy yellow with some sediment and a white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma and flavour are funk, citrus, yeast, herbs, and pepper - with a dry finish.

Bottle back home with my Dad. Pour is hazy golden with a big white head and great lacing. Big pineappley, lemon peel, soapy, biscuity, doughy, tropical fruity, band-aid, and herbal aroma. Taste is tart lemon peel, soapy, a hint of spicy rye, orange peel, doughy, grassy, pineapple, and peach with a lightly bitter tart finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Really tasty and refreshing.

Bottle. Orange, strong rye malt, and orange peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with large head. Over-ripe orange malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Light funky finish. Very nice beer.
