2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Unfiltered golden pour. Paper white thick head with lots of lacing. Aroma of earthy spicy hops a mild fruity esters. Thick mouthfeel. Esters are focus in flavor. I get banana, apple, and some clove. Mild hop spice aroma comes through too. Fairly bitter finish.

From notes. Poured golden, with a small off-white foam. Mostly fruity nose. Orange peels, grapefruit, hay, raisins, hints of grass in the aroma. Slightly sour, almost salty. Medium, with a dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden color with two fingers of fizzy foam. The nose is lots of rustic grain, yeasty esters and some earthy must. The palate follows the nose with lots of doughy heavy grain notes with underlying yeasty esters, traces of bitter citrus rind, grassy finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Thanks, Jason! Pours an almost fully opaque orange & amber color with a slowly fading, off-white chunky head that leaves some sheety lacing behind. Aroma is full of peppery spice & phenols. Plenty of farmhouse yeast... very spicy. Some pear-like fruity esters buried deep with a bit of dirt & earthiness in the finish. Taste has a woodsy, tree-bark essence up front, followed up by heaps of dry farmhouse yeast & cotton blanket funk. Super yeast, spicy, & very woody. Like licking a barnyard wall... There’s also quite a bitter hop sting on the palate in the finish. Sharp, dry, medium carbonation. While not bad, it’s a little too over the top woodsy & spicy for my preferences overall. Still decent, but probably my least favorite Jester King beer to date.

Hefeweizen nose of banana, citrus, and clove. Cloudy straw color with a large, frothy head. Tastes sweet and bitter-spiced with a very dry finish. Flavors of bitter esters, black pepper, yellow grapefruit, and lemon. Pretty good. Very complex!

How come my scores always look so horrible? I rated it exactly the way I thought it was but I liked it so much better than the score reflects. I hate when that happens...

Bottle from Proof. Deep golden color pour with a rocky white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast phenols, earth, clove spices, touches of citrus acidity and dough malt. Palate is rich and slightly chewy with similar flavor as the nose. Smooth carbonation with no noticeable alcohol. Very nice.

Bottle. Hazy yellow color. The funk from the farmhouse yeast is the star here. It turned an okay beer into a great beer. I like what they’re doing at Jester King. Can’t wait for it to make it to Ohio.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle - 750 ml) Cloudy gold pour with a thick white head. Lots of yeast and spice and dry funk in the aroma. Flavor is the standard saison sweetness but counterbalanced by a funky dry finish with some spicy yeast notes. Normally not a fan of this style but the funk won me over.
