When I found that these were being distributed to Indiana I grabbed one as soon as possible. Jester King has been on my radar from a while since bullzeye sent me a couple over the years. Hitting a good balance between price and quality I will have to pick up the others before they disappear from the shelves with the shift to winter.
Aroma / Appearance - The semi-transparent carbonated base has a fringe of white head. The polished golden hue shimmers with life. Straw, pencil shavings, lemon essence, and noble hops form a woody profile that hangs in the air.
Flavor / Palate - Dry straw, earth, and bitter hops hit around the same time before this begins to ebb. Melon transitions to a refreshingly gentle finish. Almost like a lower ABV oaky white wine it clings to the back of the throat. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water.
Bottle (75 cl) from bierkompass.de. Shady amber, medium white head. Fruity and peppery aroma, some earthy notes, grassy hops. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with medium bitterness.
