harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottled: unk Pours a cloudy blonde ale with a solid sheet of bone whites. Nose is mostly dry with some dust, grain, a bit of resin and citrus - but faint. Flavor is fairly tame with some initial bitterness and then some wheat flavor and some nuttyness that reminds me of Belgian yeast. Thin body et high. Biting carb. Decent beer, nothing special.

Bottle thanks to Adam. Pours a clear white gold with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong grape, oak, wheat. Thin, grape, wheat, crisp, crushable, good.

On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a cloudy yellow with a medium frothy hea that lasts awhile. The aroma is citrus wheat and fruit. Thin mouthfeel with a fruity citrus light hop with a nice crisp finish. Easy to drink, a good wheat from Jester King.

750ml bottle pours a cloudy orange with a thick frothy head. Aromas of wheat, citrus, barnyard hay, hops and a light bubble gum aroma. Flavors are a mixture of aromas, hops are there but not overpowering. A nice easy drinker to enjoy all day.

Cybercat (6334) - Georgia, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Pours hazy apricot with a thick ivory head. Malty, wheaty and fruity aroma is quite tempting. Wheaty, malty and sweet fruity flavor delivers a hint of hops. Body is average, and fizz is typical - but fruity finish makes this satisfying. Drink this Sunbelt!

BeerandBlues2 (14018) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours cloudy yellow with a large, rocky off-white head, long retention with light lacing. Aroma is earthy, herbal, and spicy hops and wheat malt. Flavor is earthy wheat malt, medium herbal and earthy hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Light body and heavy carbonation.

750mL bottle drunk 5/20/15
Another great appearance from Jester king; huge, fluffy white head is very well-retained atop a ripe peach-colored body with high clarity, leaving sediment in the bottom.
Pure, wonderfully done amarillo in the nose. Heavily floral with just a touch of sweet tangerine and light lime. They are quite uninterrupted by the malts, which, on account of the very low acidity, need very little sweetness to balance. House yeast adds a touch of minerality that is very enjoyable, almost like warm well water. Soft orange blossom-like aromatics continue as it warms while just a touch of light caramel emerges from the cara malt.
Very similar flavor profile, hop-forward but with a complete lack of acidity. Very impressive. Wheat gives a softness to the body, though there is a bit of hardness from the carared (wish they’d left that out, but then, I pretty much never like cara malts in light to mid strength beers). Other than that, it’s just a flowery, soft, incredibly drinkable beer with much more flavor than you’d ever expect for its size. No alcohol or flaws. Everything I’ve had from these guys that hasn’t been oxidized to all hell has been outstanding.

sonnycheeba (6539) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 21, 2015
Bottle (gusher!). Pours cloudy gold with off-white head. Aroma is wheat, orange peel, lemon zest, and floral hops. Flavor is dry and a little bland with nice hop presence and faint citrus. Light/medium body.

kevinator (2860) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2015
An interesting ale collaborated with a great brewery. Nice aroma and flavor of wheat and floral hips bitterness. Golden and copper color with a light but dry palate. Felt like it needed a little better balance though.
