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.

Very enjoyable beer. Color is golden amber with minimal head, great lacing on glass. Good bouquet of hops on the nose, complimenting the bitterness nicely. Finishes dry and crisp with a good yeasty bite to it. Will gladly drink again.

750 split 4 ways... thanks Nick. Hazy pale yellow with a massive white head. Smell is farmy as hell, spicy, peppery, and bright fruitiness. Taste is again with the bright fruit, spice, and yeast. Solid.
