Earthy rye and piny hop flavor and aroma meet spicy, funky characteristics from our farmhouse yeast in this American-inspired farmhouse ale.

Note: This Farmhouse version replaced the original Wytchmaker Rye IPA when Jester King switched to a farmhouse yeast for all beers. The original bottles feature a small Jester King sticker on the neck; newer bottles do not have this sticker and say "Farmhouse" in small print on the label.

Yorker (1955) - Herning, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2014
75 cl bottle @ home (WARNING: gusher, so open in the sink and preferably have a couple of glasses ready, unless you want to lose most of the bottles contents - my bottle certainly kept gushing for a while). Pours hazy yellow with some sediment and a white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma and flavour are funk, citrus, yeast, herbs, and pepper - with a dry finish.

Bottle back home with my Dad. Pour is hazy golden with a big white head and great lacing. Big pineappley, lemon peel, soapy, biscuity, doughy, tropical fruity, band-aid, and herbal aroma. Taste is tart lemon peel, soapy, a hint of spicy rye, orange peel, doughy, grassy, pineapple, and peach with a lightly bitter tart finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Really tasty and refreshing.

shrubber85 (11215) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle. Orange, strong rye malt, and orange peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with large head. Over-ripe orange malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Light funky finish. Very nice beer.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - DEC 19, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2014 Bottle. Nice light, effervescent hoppy aroma. Combination of pine and citrus. Light, lively body. A bit of peppery rye spice comes through midpalate. Very drinkable, cleansing the palate instead of coating it with a resiny feel.

smells hoppy with tropical fruits and citrus. Pours hazy yellow with nice white head. Taste is not as bitter as an average ipa. More sweet and tangy with a little bitterness throughout. Overall this is a good beer and should be tried simply for its uniqueness.

Bottle. Pours bright yellow with a white head. Smells very fruity- pineapple, citrus, very bright aroma. Has a very strong elastic brett taste, very bitter finish, resinous hops, hay, herbal. Medium carbonation, light body, long finish. Interesting. Good.

Kevin (2195) - Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2013
bottle. pours a sparkling bright yellow with a big fucking head. smells of pineapple, and dough. damnit, why didnt i say pineapple upside down cake? flavor is pineapple, pine, with that mellow funk that makes me think of chewing on rubber bands while smiling. some lemon notes in the finish. overall bitterness works with these flavors. is a hop forward "balanced" beer.
