750 ml bottle shared by Coopers Kid- thanks, Andy! Pours a dull grapefruit juice color with a small eggshell white head. Aroma of pears, grapefruit, floral hops, farmhouse funk, and dry grains. Flavor of pear, peach, grapefruit, funk, sweet malts, bread, and mild peppery spices. Medium-bodied, with a funky, juicy mouthfeel with a dry, bitter finish and medium carbonation. Cool beer, really liked this one.

750ml bottle courtesy of a trade with crajun. Pours a hazy gold with a thin-moderate white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of malt and citrus along with some yeasty notes. The flavor is malt with a bit of sweetness, fresh bread, citrus with a bit of spiciness to it. Dries out with moderate bitterness at the finish. Solid.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Very glad to finally try Jester King. Slightly hazy pour with a medium sized off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big citrus and tropical fruit notes, faint earth and spice. The taste is the same with a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied. Very nice.

Many thanks to Terminus for sharing this nice beer. Pours hazy golden / light orange with a small white head. The aroma is very floral and has nectar fruit, light funkiness, mild toast, herbs and Belgian yeastiness. Medium / full body with lots of soft carbonation. The flavor starts with mild toast, dry herbs, pepper, dried apricots and grainy/huskiness. The finish is very dry and grassy and has lots of floral herbal traits. The alcohol is pretty well hidden here.

Hazy yellow pole with a small white head. Herbal lemony citrus with hints of nail polish remover. Spicy herbals and a great bready dough character in the flavor give way to grassy citrus peel. Medium body with fluffy carbonation.

750mL. Full haze peach. Small white foam. Cidery off aroma. Lots of celery. Taste is minerally, peach, kumquat, celery. Boozy in a way. Okay. Much too minerally with big celery seed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle, shared by Thorpe429: Pours a clear pale golden with a spotty-lacing froth of white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with some perfume notes and a touch of yeastiness. Starts with light effervescence and pale malty sweetness with a good amount of light fruity esters and floral hoppy bitterness before a drier, crisp finish. Pretty true to style and enjoyable.
