Hazy straw golden under a thin white foamy top. Lovely lemon zest and funky bretty undertones and a light hay malty base. Brisk semidry and funky flavor with a bright tree fruity juicy backbone that’s not sweet but has a pleasant fruity tartness under the gentle funk and hay tones. Bright and fun. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 28, 2017

HUGE THANKS to Compton25 for the bottle. 750 ml. bottle split by 4. Hazy citrus golden, soapy white head. I have never had a Loquat so no context there. Nose is very soapy big soapy with vaguely sour citrus fruit that I cannot place. Taste is soapy fruit, fruit is nice, vaguely juicy sour, fruity, reminds me a bit of a Mirabelle Plum, plaster. Easy drinking very mellow funk, odd soapy profile is a bit too high. Decent but I expect more from Jester King but it seems like no longer everything that they make is brilliant. balloonbuffoon (533) - - AUG 30, 2017
25.4floz (750ml) bottle, 4% ABV, freshness not mark, so this may be from last year (or not). I paid $13, and poured the contents into a tulip glass. Appears a hazy straw yellow with small retentive layer of white head. Smells kinda like dish soap water, which really isn't as bad as that seems. Out of the sparkling light palate are floral and husky grain flavors. This is pretty good stuff. HonusWagner (2218) - Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2017
It’s a weird one, fitting with the name. Tart, vaguely fruity, weird yeast stuff going on. Not really a fan, tbqh.

Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with fluffy white head that dissipates slowly to leave good lace. Aroma of mild tropical fruit over big saison and farmhouse funk esters, with a touch of wheat. Taste is more balanced, nice fruitiness, nice funk, light and refreshing. This will probably develop nicely as the brett and bacteria take hold more, but its a little underwhelming right now for the price. Scopey (15500) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle at level 42, thanks to LKS. It pours hazy bright yellow - gold with a decent white head. The aroma is soft, mellow, quite fragrant, yellow plum, apricot, juicy, white bread, lemon sherbet and cracker. The taste is crisp, dry, tart, juicy fruit, lemon sherbet, gooseberry, candied citrus peel, light lactic vibe, salted lemon, minerals and tangy fruits. Medium body body and fine carbonation. Refreshing stuff. Good work. Theydon_Bois (20487) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017
