It’s gorgeous clear, golden orange with fluffy, off-white head, well sustained and leaving nice lacing. It’s got a bright piny aroma, with a bit of citrus and some dank barnyard and hay. After it warms just a bit, it’s a little earthy, biscuity, mild bitters and sweetness. The noble hops do great with this farmhouse style, great concept, well executed. The finish is semi-dry. Mouthfeel is medium-full. It’s a great brew.

Pours a cloudy orange/straw color with fluffy head. Aroma is nice spicy hops with some banana, musty basement, and citrus. Taste is medium sweet with a lightly bitter hoppy finish. Really good stuff.

75 cl. fles gedeeld met Kraddel – leuke fles – benieuw naar dit, Jester King is een van mijn favoriete Amerikaanse brouwerijen geworden – ziet er aanzienlijk wazig amber, licht oranje uit, solide witte kraag – geur is licht fermenterende perziken, lichte boerderij, hooi, wit brood, wit peper, toets hars – bitter Belgisch gist, fermenterende perziken, lichte hooi, wit peper, wit brood, mos, beschimmelde toets, wat wazige Amerikaanse hars hop, florale toets, licht bitter, bloemen – wazig – niet al te enthousiast over dit, het is zeker niet slecht maar ik heb gelijkaardige, betere, goedkopere, specialere,… dingen hier gehad

jbeatty (1098) - New York, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle, 11/12/2012. Pours cloudy orange, dense foamy white head. Aroma is pale cereal malts, yeast, light fruitiness with touch of honey, floral hops. Taste mostly follows suit- pale malts with citrusy, grassy hops, yeast, mellow herbal bitter finish. Medium light palate. Decent, but just.

teorn88 (2705) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle at CPK, London. Poured a hazy lemon color with a giant two-finger head; extremely over carbonated. Smell is citrus, fruity hops, light pepper, a hint of funk, and lemon peel. Taste is lemon, straw, pepper, light brett, and a medium bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with medium carbonation and a lingering aftertaste. Nice hoppy taste, with a crisp finish.

markwise (4543) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Pours a nice hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is a beautiful bouquet of hops both citrus and floral with hints of pine and yeast. Flavor is similar with a nice bit of grassy, herbal, floral, and mildly piney hops. Light in body and interesting, but heavenly with the roasted peppers from the Farm to Table Pavilion at GABF.

Bottle at Barley Swine in Austin. This wheaty, hoppy farmhouse ale is the perfect evocation of a country summer day. Has me excited to get out into Hill Country while we're in town! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beerproject (129) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Aroma is floral, earthy and spicy with a touch of farmhouse yeast. Taste is smooth bitterness with plenty of noble hop flavor (earthy, spicy, floral) followed by belgian farmhouse yeast. Dry finish and high carbonation.
