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.

Bottle shared @ RBAG 2015. Deep hazy golden, big barnyard funk, grassy undertones. The malts are sweet, but the palate drys out nicely.

RBAG 2015, 750ml brown bottle. Murky yellow colour, a thin small white cap up top. Brett in the nose featuring tart lemon, funk. Taste is rather dryish and full off nice brett. Didn’t seem very hoppy, quite funky and dry.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Reviewed from notes: glad I got to try a couple bottles of this before it was gone. Pours a nice hazy amber color with white head. Citrus, barnyard funk, yeast, wheat, and pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. A nice medium bodied chewy mouthfeel on this one. Finishes with a funky caramel note.

Bottle from Beerman6686. Thanks! This pours a hazy rustic orange color with a booming off-white head. The aroma is this cotton candy, funky yeast, and fruity ester mix. Picking up grapes and strawberry, oddly. Grass eventually creeps in there too. The flavors are dominated by yeast and fruity esters: apple, pear, and a little banana. This shows more alcohol than I’d like, which is sharp in the finish, but it’s a good beer. The sweetness is contrasted by a nice dry funky character. I just never seem to be disappointed by Jester King.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, some pale and caramel malts, a little spiciness, and a little bitterness. Flavor the same with hints of fruits and spices on the finish. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750mL bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a hazy dark golden with a medium white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, light fruitiness, clove and some bready malts. Flavour brings out clove, loads of Belgian yeast, a touch of candied sugar, and even a touch of wild farmhouse notes. Quite dominated by the yeast and clove to a lesser extent. The farmhouse notes don’t come out that much, but the yeast is front and centre.
