750mL bottle. Pours a hazy, pale straw yellow with frothy white head, excellent retention. Nose is funky barnyard-ness, daffodils, minerals, general earthiness. Mouth is sharply carbonated, mildly tart and bretty, dry and slightly tanniny, funky citrus fruits, hay, white pepper, grapefruit bitterness on back-end. Refreshingly good beer for summer.

The Masonry, Seattle. At SBW2016 Jester King event. Creamy white foam on a bright, cloudy white-yellow. intense aroma, earthy-onion noble hop. very over-hopped saison. Buttery, earthy hop dominates. Waxy hops really donít work for me, but I see how some would love this.

andrewje41 (2715) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Draft pour at the Masonry as part of their SBW event. Pours a still yellow color with a rocky white foam head. Lemon, grassy aroma. Flavor is a wet citrus, lemon up front, but not too tart. Floral, yeast steady. Soft fruit with a late spice hint. Drinks easy. Intriguing bite to it, and hop content is noticeable. Has a watery side to it, that knocked this down to just great.

stevoj (3774) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle from Whole Foods - Lamar. Batch #17 04.01.2015. Pours out pale cloudy golden color with huge airy head. Spots of sediment for the white head. Yeasty, funky tartness in both aroma and taste. Not sure if itís the age or not, but coming off sour, not too bad, but more tart than your normal farmhouse ale. But itís Jester King...more yeasty funk on the finish.

NBird (626) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2016
Looks.. Murky straw colour & large foamy white head. Smells.. Sugar citrus, straw and a fair bit of Brett showing in the snout. Tastes.. Straw, lemon, strong brettanomyces character.. Balanced nicely, enjoyable.

Ungstrup (34022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 14, 2016
A loght yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of lemons, brettanomyces, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemons, brettanomyces, wood, and straw leading to a tart finish.

Pours a golden cloudy yellow. Aromas of fruit, grass, yeast, a touch of hops, and some funk. Acidic with great yeasty and fruity flavors. Nice little hop touch on the tail.
