Bottle to glass. Batch 12. Pour is a light, pale yellow. Champagne like head. Aroma is tart, funky. Hints of Apple cider vinegar, fresh fruit and grass / hay. Taste is tart, moderate salinity, fresh cut green apples. Finishes bitter, with the hops coming through with grass an earthy notes. Mmm. Palate is light body, medium carbonation. My second jester king beer, and I’m really liking them so far!

HonkeyBra (3443) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazed golden with a big white head. Aroma of bread, mild sour dough and tartness. Nice fruitiness. Flavor is sweet with a mild tartness. Hop presence is there, with mild earth notes. Medium bitterness in the flavor with yeasty twang. Full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Finishes sweet and lingers around a bit.

onceblind (4329) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Hazy light gold under a thick rocky white head. The nose is wonderfully complex with notes of sour yeast, fresh floral hops, malted wheat, hay, citrus, melon, lemongrass and a light barn note. Smooth yet robust flavor that’s prickly yet with a smooth sour twang, a touch leafy and earthy, some slight tropical fruitiness, hay, sour barn bacteria and a nice quaff-inducing refreshing finish with a loss of melon and lemongrass to sweeten it up. Nicely bitter with fresh leafy hops, but balanced and just the right amount of twang.

Sampled via bottle at WTWBA 2014 in Minneapolis. Hazy yellow pour. Soft sour, grass, lemon in this. This was good, but not great for me.

Pours a gold with lots of head. Not as much aroma as others. Very juice like mouth feel. Taste is a little hoppy. Sweet. Hops are the finish. Not bad.
