COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Boutip (6620) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle: Poured a light dirty beige color ale with a giant white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fruity hops with light mango notes with dry Brett notes and some light spicy notes form the cedar. Taste is also dominated by light mango fruity notes with some spicy notes from the cedar and the dry aftertaste and funky notes from the yeast. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Incredible amount of complexity can be found in this beer but it also retains an extremely high level of drinkability.

TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2014
This is one of my favorites from Jester King and a very well done beer. Pours a hazy straw yellow color with white head. Citrus, brett, cedar, funk, light fruit, and some earth tones on the nose; follows onto the palate. Very complex, and medium bodied. Finishes dry with a bit of funk.

L_inconnu (69) - Ecublens, SWITZERLAND - APR 20, 2014
Une des bières les plus intéressante, travaillée et marquante qu’il m’ai été donné de goûter. À la première gorgée, on se sent transporté. J’ai fermé les yeux et j’ai cru me trouver en pleine pinède Toscane. L’une des personne avec qui je l’ai dégusté m’a même assuré en avoir rêvé après coup ^^
