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.

smells hoppy with tropical fruits and citrus. Pours hazy yellow with nice white head. Taste is not as bitter as an average ipa. More sweet and tangy with a little bitterness throughout. Overall this is a good beer and should be tried simply for its uniqueness.

Bottle. Pours bright yellow with a white head. Smells very fruity- pineapple, citrus, very bright aroma. Has a very strong elastic brett taste, very bitter finish, resinous hops, hay, herbal. Medium carbonation, light body, long finish. Interesting. Good.

Kevin (2056) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 6, 2013
bottle. pours a sparkling bright yellow with a big fucking head. smells of pineapple, and dough. damnit, why didn’t i say pineapple upside down cake? flavor is pineapple, pine, with that mellow funk that makes me think of chewing on rubber bands while smiling. some lemon notes in the finish. overall bitterness works with these flavors. is a hop forward "balanced" beer.

JBPortland (656) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 3, 2013
750ml bottle pours hazy orange with 2 finger head. Nose is funky citrus, lime, musty. Taste is funky lime, faint pine notes, plastic, flour, dough, hay. Finish is a strange earthy lime, hay, dry, bitter, peppery. Weird combination, doesn’t all mesh for my tastes. OK.

SpringsLicker (3120) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Thanks to crajun for the trade! Pours a medium yellow with a tall sticky white head. Complex aroma pine resin, fruit, funk; thinking Saison not IPA here. The flavor follows the aroma; again Saison type complexity. Very nice interesting beer.

ben4321 (3790) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Location: 750 ml bottle from a Spec’s, 10/6/13

Aroma: The nose is sweet and fruity, some hops too, pine, yeast, and a little spice
Appearance: Pours a murky dark orange color with a huge, gushing beige head and heavy lace
Flavor: The flavor is medium sweet, yeasty and fruity, some spice, and a medium bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a slightly sticky feel, and a plus carbonation
Overall Impression: This is a pretty interesting one. It leans more sweet than hoppy for this style. The farmhouse yeast provides a nice component here as well. I’d prefer a little more hop bitterness in this style, but it is a solid one.
