Bottle. Pours golden with white head. Aroma is smokey, not much else. Taste is smokey, BBQ. Aftertaste is way too smokey. A little tart too. This while thing is a but muddled for me, not sure what else too do with it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Piana - Duza, wolno opada.
Zapach - Kwaskowa wedzonosc.
Gaz - Mocno nasycone, nawet po otwarciu butelki troche mi wystrzelilo i piana lala sie z butelki.
Smak - Tu jest bardzo ciekawie. Lekka slonosc, pozniej kwasnie a nastepnie wedzona slodowosc zostajaca juz do konca.
Ogolnie - Po tym piwie spodziwalem sie mocniejszej soli, ale jest ledwo musniecie. Ale absolutnie nie czuje sie zawiedzony, bo okazalo sie naprawde pyszne, bardzo interesujace w przemianach nut smakowych z kazdym lykiem.

Pours a hazy light yellow with no head. Aroma of smoke, wheat with a touch of funk. Taste follows, all smoke. This is a bit hard to drink

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another unique beer from Jester King. Big aroma of smoked malt with a sense of cooked fruit. Nice color with a decent white head. Medium to light palate. Flavors were blended well with the underlying smoke essence being careful to not mask the touches of citrus and sour fruit with just enough hops bitterness.

Taste: good sour notes well balanced with grassy finish. Amazing peat presence, really great notes and amazing. Good surprising !!!! Aftertaste: sour finish and floral bouquet ! Amazing composition beer ! For the balance of sour and peat, it’s a must to try!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle with thanks to Homer! Pours hazy orange, large off-white head, dissipates leaving lots of residual and lacing. Aroma is smoky, campfire, belgian yeast, black pepper and hay, some lemon. Flavor is light sweet initially, giving way to a light tartness. Fairly smoky but not overpowering. Belgian yeast provides hay, mowed grass, black pepper notes as well as a touch of funky musty dusty flavors. Fairly prominent lemon/citrus notes as well. Lightish body, champagnelike carbonation. This one is underrated IMO.

This beer was probably my favorite one that I had in all of 2013. Lots of evolution throughout the tasting, a somewhat funky flavor, with detection of some slightly fruity flavors, that eventually transform into a nice dark wood finish. Beautiful to sip on.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
750 ml bottle from Bieropholie, shared with judges. Very murky golden, minimal head. Strong smoke, phenolic, sour organic acids, a little funk (Lambic), minerals, citrus. Medium mouth feel, relaxed carbonation. Reasonable fruitiness and some Saison spiciness, light funk, citrus; lightly tart, moderately high bitterness, a spiciness in the feel. Interesting if not totally successful.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle-Jan 2013 batch 1 Sampled as I rate it
Pours hazy light orange hue with a small soapy fizzy white head with lots of bubble size, carbonation and some sparse lacing. Nice looking brew as the head settled pretty fast. Nose is bigtime smokey, but just in a beachwood sort of way. Flavors are tart, slightly woody, lite smoke, lots of fruits-peach, orange peal, and maybe a tad of lite melons. Lovely long sweet, tart and smokey finish-very long. A great brew, why the low ratings? I dont get it. great brew! give it some age and it will shine!
