RATINGS: 97   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.57/5   SEASONAL: Winter   EST. CALORIES: 279   ABV: 9.3%
A golden colored, high gravity (O.G. 1.074) ale, brewed with pilsner, wheat and caramunich malts, along with a good dose of American hops and fermented with Jester Kings farmhouse yeast, finishing at 9.3% alcohol by volume. It is a hop forward beer with dank, resinous hop flavor and aroma, balanced by lightly kilned malt flavors, farmhouse yeast esters and a bit of warming alcohol.

wedgie9 (2697) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Tasted on 8/12/13 from a capped 750mL bottle sent to me as an extra in a trade. Pours cloudy orange with a massive off-white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is full of light caramel malt, spicy, somewhat funky yeast, and some light hops underlying. The flavor is the same, with decent sweetness and some bitterness balancing it out, and the same dry and spicy yeast. The body is full with average, stinging carbonation, and a long lightly sweet brown sugar and spicy yeast finish.

Bottle shared @ RBAG 2015. Deep hazy golden, big barnyard funk, grassy undertones. The malts are sweet, but the palate drys out nicely.

RBAG 2015, 750ml brown bottle. Murky yellow colour, a thin small white cap up top. Brett in the nose featuring tart lemon, funk. Taste is rather dryish and full off nice brett. Didnt seem very hoppy, quite funky and dry.

Reviewed from notes: glad I got to try a couple bottles of this before it was gone. Pours a nice hazy amber color with white head. Citrus, barnyard funk, yeast, wheat, and pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. A nice medium bodied chewy mouthfeel on this one. Finishes with a funky caramel note.

Bottle from Beerman6686. Thanks! This pours a hazy rustic orange color with a booming off-white head. The aroma is this cotton candy, funky yeast, and fruity ester mix. Picking up grapes and strawberry, oddly. Grass eventually creeps in there too. The flavors are dominated by yeast and fruity esters: apple, pear, and a little banana. This shows more alcohol than Id like, which is sharp in the finish, but its a good beer. The sweetness is contrasted by a nice dry funky character. I just never seem to be disappointed by Jester King.

jkwood04 (5404) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 3, 2013
750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, some pale and caramel malts, a little spiciness, and a little bitterness. Flavor the same with hints of fruits and spices on the finish. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

750mL bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a hazy dark golden with a medium white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, light fruitiness, clove and some bready malts. Flavour brings out clove, loads of Belgian yeast, a touch of candied sugar, and even a touch of wild farmhouse notes. Quite dominated by the yeast and clove to a lesser extent. The farmhouse notes dont come out that much, but the yeast is front and centre.
