2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
This poured a very light yellow almost whitish color with a white head. Aroma was almost non existent really, very light herbal notes, and some light grain, some spice there too. Flavor was much the same, not off putting, and i know this is supposed to be a low abv beer, but the taste is really lacking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle via my cheap ass friend. Aroma is hoppy with some random vanilla and a super light funk. Taste is slightly spicy with some rosemary, pepper, and oatmeal. Still tastes somewhat watered down but not so much that I would have guessed this if I hadn’t known the style. I’d definitely drink this as a table beer if such a thing was a known practice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(750ml bottle) cloudy medium gold with bright white head that’s very fine and evident of its natural carbonation. Nose of bright sweet golden raisins, honey, freshly cracked grain and a hint of pepper. Subtle and complex. Taste is nice too, fresh cracked grain, reminds slightly of a light spicy rye, white pepper, Belgian style yeast, and coriander seed. Body is light but great amount of flavor for the abv. Excellent palate finish with soft natural carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma on this is citrus with some lemon hints, light spiciness, and perhaps some coriander and/or grains of paradise. Light banana yeast esters. Pretty quaffable. Moderately hazy yellow body with an effervescent, bubbly, strong whitish head present. Starts overly carbonated with some metallic flavors present. Becomes a little dusty with some yeast character. Light banana, light spice. Finishes with more metallic character. This is obviously a small beer, but they have done a pretty good job of making it seem bigger. As usually, they overcooked the carbonation on this beer, but it’s not nearly as overcooked as my previous Jester King beers.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle) Pours hazy pale golden with a creamy white head. The aroma is fantastic – grassy/herbal/floral/dew, hops, dry white bready/cracker-like malt, clove/metal-smelling phenols, green apples, green banana, woodsy unripe pineapple, lemon juice, coriander, damp basement, raw potato, nettles and a slight touch of horse blanket. Clean, bright and perfect nose, like an over hoped Belgian wheat on acid. The flavour is dry, light to medium bitter and light acidic with notes of grass, herbs, lemon, coriander, wood, green fruits, nettles, crackers, touch of funk, damp basement, pepper and clove. The mouthfeel is clean, tart and bright with a medium carbonation. Grass, lime, phenols and yumminess on the finish. Light bodied.

75 cl bottle @ hotel room, copenhagen
Rather nice farmhouse aroma with earthy notes. Flavour is sourish and somerhat tart with earthy notes. Something between berliner weisse and saison. Very nice and tasty stuff, I find it hard to observe that this is just 2,9%. I would love to have some of this on a hot summer day…
