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.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2012
750ml bottle from West Lakeview Liquors. Pours a hazy golden colored body with an inch thick, dense and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is lightly sweetened pale malts with a light grainy wheat, grass, a good amount of florals with a few citruses, and a lightly spiced Belgian yeast. Flavor is similar. A bit more lemon-zest up front with a slight herbal spicing and a lightly sweetened, somewhat bready pale malt backing with a few grainy wheats as well. Florals in the middle with some spicy Belgian yeast, earth, and a slight sour funk. Finishes dry and fairly spicy with a medium-light bitterness, but well balanced with a light malt sweetness and a decent amount of floral fruits. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid, somewhat hopped up Belgian Ale with a nice balance between the spices, sweetness, and fruits. The slight sour funk from the yeast was also pleasant. Good beer.

patricks110 (2063) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
Really solid session brew with a beautiful Belgian accented flavor. Well hopped and a beautiful flavour overall. The pour is a bright golden orange with a thick foamy off white head with a few lacing splothces. The nose is floral and has a light citrus hop note with a subtle spice and Belgian ester quality. Very balanced and nicely hopped with a good Belgian flavor. Overall, really good solid brew.

750 ml bottle
When I found that these were being distributed to Indiana I grabbed one as soon as possible. Jester King has been on my radar from a while since bullzeye sent me a couple over the years. Hitting a good balance between price and quality I will have to pick up the others before they disappear from the shelves with the shift to winter.

Aroma / Appearance - The semi-transparent carbonated base has a fringe of white head. The polished golden hue shimmers with life. Straw, pencil shavings, lemon essence, and noble hops form a woody profile that hangs in the air.

Flavor / Palate - Dry straw, earth, and bitter hops hit around the same time before this begins to ebb. Melon transitions to a refreshingly gentle finish. Almost like a lower ABV oaky white wine it clings to the back of the throat. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water.
