1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bought several of these and had at various ages and just blatantly disappointed, much like other regular JK lineup. Pours a hazy pale straw color with little aroma, minimal amounts of hops and I get no farmhouse character. Flavor is also subdued, as would be expected for a "table beer" I suppose. Light malt flavor and extremely light hop character. Donít bother with this beer...for the money, go buy some Budweiser...equally tasty and 1/5 the price.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium white head. Clear yellow body with carbonation and some
tiny particles. Fruity funky floral aroma with citric notes.
Dry mealy lemony floral taste with funky notes. Light-bodied.
Fizzy mouthfeel. Dry strawy lemony funky aftertaste with watery
notes. Itís fine, but didnít enjoy that much. A bit watery and
low on flavour. (0.75l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.)

Bottle. Hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is yeast and some lagerish hop aromas. Taste follows suit and adds some slight lemon notes and a seltzer like finish. Extremely dry mouthfeel. Nice neutral beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 75cl. Cracked open on a sunny day. It pours a lactic pale yellow beer with a nicely remaining chunky mountainous white head. Baguette, melon, spicy earthy hops, mandarin orange and cloves showing up in the nose which is quite inviting. Nice biscuity pale malt back. Light bodied and remarkably delicate. Dryish finish. A great choice on a hot day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a light cloudy yellow color with aromas of light tart lemon, some light yeast, with some floral notes. Flavors are the same, light funkiness, floral and some light citrus, interesting beer, not my favorite from these guys.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle from IPB.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow wit medium foamy white head. Quite a lot of lacing.
Aroma : Saison yeast with light bananas. Spicy saaz hops with light citrusy notes. Nice hoppy nose with some malt. Quite aromatic with some rather expressive malts considering how small the grain bill is.
Taste : Saison yeast with citrusy and spicy hops. Some malt. Finish is spicy with light citrusy notes. Moderate bitterness.
Palate : Arrival is fairly well bodied but it gets a bit watery afterward but that was expected and is understandable to some extent. Persistent yeasty notes. Carbonation is pretty fizzy. I enjoyed it a bit more when the carbonation had time to fade a bit.
Overall : Pretty nice beer. Great aromatic nose with fairly nice taste. Finish is fairly complex.Pretty impressive overall for such a small beer. Iíd tone down the carbonation a bit. I would like to see more of these low abv beers.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pours a pale yellow-golden color with a fluffy loose white head. The first whiff shows off a musty aroma, thatís followed by earth, lemon, grass, and straw. Very nice and delicate. Light-bodied, as expected, but not thin or watery. Thereís a good amount of flavor here for what this is. Gentle flavors of yeast, citrus, grass, and earthy hops. Dry and crisp. The carbonation seems spot on; active but not out of control. Iím pleasantly surprised by this is low alcohol, farmhouse brew. In the end, it is still a 2.9% beer, though. So it has itís limitations. But Iím impressed with what Jester King has done with this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 75 cl. Pours hazy pale golden in color with a small whitish head. Notes of citrus, hay and summer meadow in aroma, nice hoppy notes indeed. Light soapy notes, some bitter citrus and notes of hay in taste. Refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Batch #9/10 Mar 2013. Subtle, yet defined. Delicate aromas of Dupont-like yeast, and subtle florals, similar to yellow rose petals. Fine, prickly carbonation first hits the palate.. light-bodied mid-palate, yet with good flavor. Delicate flavors of rose petal, yeast and something undefinable. Great mouthfeel; light, yet with a creamy carbonation that keeps it full. More funky yeast comes out as it warms... Which is not a bad thing, just an added layer of complexity. Well made.. Definitely hits its stride as it warms.. Hard to give a big score to a beer with such delicate flavors, though its definitely a solid beer. A great option for those looking for an artisanal, pilsner-like substitution or simply a lighter farmhouse ale. The last couple yeast filled pours are awesome! ...and full of flavor and body. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...
