3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle - Once again, I missed who to thank for bringing this] Pours hazy orange with an off-white head. Aroma is weird--lots of yeast and orange juice. The taste is yeast, citrus, coriander, and underlying malt. Unfortunately, it does not mesh together well at all. Medium mouthfeel, long finish. Overall, not very enjoyable, but interesting to try.

750 thanks to SPDickerman. Big yeasty saison/farmhouse. Orange and zest in aroma and body. Cloudy. This is a yeast bomb. Not dry at all. But tasty.

750ml bottle pours a hazy, dark yellow with some cloudy white head. Fruity, sticky nose. Flavor is the same. Full bodied finish. Not the best.

Bottle-purchased at a HEB in San Antonio, TX-pours lightly hazy orange with a rocky white head with lite lacing. nose is very floral, probably from the hops that were used in the dry-hopping process. however, the hop qualities are fairly subdued and diminished, making this a very floral nose, melding well with the beer. lite lemons, lite barnyard character, lite banana. flavors are lovely-spicy hops, lite lemons, lite papaya and some pineapple along with the spicy hops. Im sure when this was fresh, it was a hop bomb, along the lines of La Choffe. Slight sweet malt husks show up on the finish with some lite bitterness. Cool brew that i would like to have fresh on tap sometime.

750 ml bottle shared by Coopers Kid- thanks, Andy! Pours a dull grapefruit juice color with a small eggshell white head. Aroma of pears, grapefruit, floral hops, farmhouse funk, and dry grains. Flavor of pear, peach, grapefruit, funk, sweet malts, bread, and mild peppery spices. Medium-bodied, with a funky, juicy mouthfeel with a dry, bitter finish and medium carbonation. Cool beer, really liked this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle courtesy of a trade with crajun. Pours a hazy gold with a thin-moderate white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of malt and citrus along with some yeasty notes. The flavor is malt with a bit of sweetness, fresh bread, citrus with a bit of spiciness to it. Dries out with moderate bitterness at the finish. Solid.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Very glad to finally try Jester King. Slightly hazy pour with a medium sized off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big citrus and tropical fruit notes, faint earth and spice. The taste is the same with a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied. Very nice.

Many thanks to Terminus for sharing this nice beer. Pours hazy golden / light orange with a small white head. The aroma is very floral and has nectar fruit, light funkiness, mild toast, herbs and Belgian yeastiness. Medium / full body with lots of soft carbonation. The flavor starts with mild toast, dry herbs, pepper, dried apricots and grainy/huskiness. The finish is very dry and grassy and has lots of floral herbal traits. The alcohol is pretty well hidden here.
