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.

Bottle at Eulogy. Orange amber pour with a foamy white head. Grassy. Slight funk in the nose. Wildflower honey. Tangerine zest. Lemon thyme. Dried flowers. Some juiciness but also very dry. Nice fragrant brew. Bit more of a full Saison, than a Farmhouse. Lots of flavor.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 30, 2012
For sale in Alberta? Beer distribution can be weird. Cloud and hazy dark amber with strong probability of tiny paticulate. Nice foamy merangue head and thick bubbly lace. Aroma of Belgian yeast and field = Saison, soft with faint spice. Dry, nice bodie, powdery spice, a bit of lemon. The server (Me) has this a little cold so I will hold the finish of the rating for 15 minutes to warm......as it warms the pepperiness really picks up...a little bit of soapiness as well. Store it upright and leave settled or the dust picks up big time.

BeerSkull (1374) - SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2012
(Bottle). Aroma and taste of yeast, floral and grassy hops and some sweet caramel and malt. Especially the yeast is prominent in the taste. The aftertaste is a little citrus toned and dry.

Skinnyviking (8213) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2012
Bottle. Low but lasting fluffy white head. Semi hazy dark yellow body. Fruity and pretty hoppy grass caramel aroma. Hops dominated fruity relatively light grassy flavor with sweet caramel notes. Low carbonation and a long but not strong bitter finish.
