COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A golden colored, high gravity (O.G. 1.074) ale, brewed with pilsner, wheat and caramunich malts, along with a good dose of American hops and fermented with Jester Kings farmhouse yeast, finishing at 9.3% alcohol by volume. It is a hop forward beer with dank, resinous hop flavor and aroma, balanced by lightly kilned malt flavors, farmhouse yeast esters and a bit of warming alcohol.

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 Id like, which is sharp in the finish, but its 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.

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 dont come out that much, but the yeast is front and centre.

Bottle shared by GatorGuy92 and PaulUnwin. Cheers, gents! Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is sweet malt, fruity yeast, and banana with some yeast. Flavor is similar with sweet malt, fruity yeast, some banana, some fruit, and a dry finish. Medium in body and lingering Belgian yeast in the finish.

This poured a dark Ruby red with a beige head. Aroma was caramel, dark fruit and Belgian yeast and spice notes. Flavor similar, mild wolfish funkish taste. OK but nothing Id go after again

Got in a trade with Cyde. 750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pear, apple, grape, lemon zest, clove, pepper, floral, grass, light pine, hay, light funk, leather, and spicy yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and yeast ester notes, with a fair amount of malt balance; and good strength. Taste of lemon zest, pear, apple, grape, clove, pepper, bread, wheat, light honey, floral, grass, hay, leather, light funk, and earthy yeast spiciness. Light earthy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, light fruits, pepper, clove, floral, grass, hay, wheat, bread, light funk, and earthy yeast spiciness on the finish for a while. Nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast flavors with moderate hop and malt notes; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a slick, fairly crisp, and earthy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good saison style. Good balance and complexity of malt, hop, and fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Tasted on 8/12/13 from a capped 750mL bottle sent to me as an extra in a trade. Pours cloudy orange with a massive off-white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is full of light caramel malt, spicy, somewhat funky yeast, and some light hops underlying. The flavor is the same, with decent sweetness and some bitterness balancing it out, and the same dry and spicy yeast. The body is full with average, stinging carbonation, and a long lightly sweet brown sugar and spicy yeast finish.
