Now this is the type of beer you can drink on a sweltering Texas day right after mowing your acreage and feeling like you deserve a light airy reward. Floral aroma with hints of raspberry. Unfiltered wheat with a delightfully refreshing citrus, mildly yeasty taste. A "close your eyes and smile" sort of beer! Thank you again, jester king! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750mL bottle drunk 5/20/15
Another great appearance from Jester king; huge, fluffy white head is very well-retained atop a ripe peach-colored body with high clarity, leaving sediment in the bottom.
Pure, wonderfully done amarillo in the nose. Heavily floral with just a touch of sweet tangerine and light lime. They are quite uninterrupted by the malts, which, on account of the very low acidity, need very little sweetness to balance. House yeast adds a touch of minerality that is very enjoyable, almost like warm well water. Soft orange blossom-like aromatics continue as it warms while just a touch of light caramel emerges from the cara malt.
Very similar flavor profile, hop-forward but with a complete lack of acidity. Very impressive. Wheat gives a softness to the body, though there is a bit of hardness from the carared (wish they’d left that out, but then, I pretty much never like cara malts in light to mid strength beers). Other than that, it’s just a flowery, soft, incredibly drinkable beer with much more flavor than you’d ever expect for its size. No alcohol or flaws. Everything I’ve had from these guys that hasn’t been oxidized to all hell has been outstanding.

Bottle (gusher!). Pours cloudy gold with off-white head. Aroma is wheat, orange peel, lemon zest, and floral hops. Flavor is dry and a little bland with nice hop presence and faint citrus. Light/medium body.

kevinator (1314) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2015
An interesting ale collaborated with a great brewery. Nice aroma and flavor of wheat and floral hips bitterness. Golden and copper color with a light but dry palate. Felt like it needed a little better balance though.

SpringsLicker (3251) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Pours clear light/medium yellow with a large fluffy white head. Sticky, soapy lace. Fragrant, spicy, floral aroma. The flavor is somewhat dry, spicy, softened. Easy drinking, but nothing really going on that interests me.

JBPortland (1141) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 26, 2014
750ml bottle thanks to Errl! Pours semi clear orange with big 3 finger head and tons of bubbles. Nose is nice mix of earthy floral fruit, apple, grain, citrus, orange. Taste has nice light body, mixed earthy farm grains, good fruitiness and soft mouthfeel, overall a bit rounded in profile with nothing really jumping out, though perhaps I sat on this bottle too long, still a pleasant easy drinker with nice soft citrus and grain and just a touch of doughy spice.
