Another excellent and unique beer from Jester King. Tropical and slightly funky aroma, citra is definitely evident through and through. Dry on the palate. Bought this in Houston when visiting Ike in 2013.

Batch #4 - July 22, 2013. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a nice hazy golden orange to yellow color with a slight ability to see small carbonation bubbles rising at the edges . There was a two finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light spider web lacing. The smell was absolutely amazing through a piney/resinous aroma with a nice entanglement of lemon zest, lemongrass, sweetened freshly cut grass and cracked pepper. The taste takes those flavors and jumbled them up to practically perfection. The aftertaste, probably one of the absolute best aftertaste I’ve ever encountered in any beer. Okay, it’s a long intriguing sticky sweet lemon with a slight dry touch from the lemongrass that lets in a tad of refreshing tropical fruitiness. The finish is sticky and sweet that brings in a light grapefruit with a light sweet grassiness to it. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Would I have this with food? I might if I could get it again. At the beginning of the beer, the carbonation felt a bit sharper but as the beer warms, it really smooths out. Overall, hot damn! Way to knock one outa the park, Jester King! When are you going to sending your beers to Alaska? Don’t make me have to trade for this again.

Comme prévu, un lever de soleil hyper effervescent avec un bouquet tropical alléchant. En bouche c’est juteux avec une belle tranche de sauvagerie et de dociles tanins facilement attribuable au cèdre. Buvabilité évidente et longueur en bouche spectaculaire.

This was one of the favourite beers I’ve had in a long time. Such a great nose full of fresh fruit from all angles with a lively fresh cedar tone over everything alongside great spice notes. Slightly less impressive on the palate but only by a hair. Such good shit.

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 ^^
