Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this
Review from notes, 7/4/14
Appearance: Somewhere between honey and yellow gold - mostly hazy, but there is some clarity - big carbonation to start but rapidly fades to a small, off-white head, then fades to a few wisps, leaves minimal lacing
Smell: Very, very, VERY unique - fruity, juicy, floral, and minty - some Jester King saison/funky weirdness - to me, the spearmint, the lavender, and the watermelon are the biggest aromas here secondary to the floral, funky saison aromas - maybe a light hint of sour - lightly sweet malts with some lightly sweet fruitiness
Taste: Somehow even weirder than the aroma (which is not a bad thing) - saison yeast, with some funk, some light tartness, and some fruity esters - green apples and pears - watermelon is more obvious than in the aroma, with some nice, remarkably fresh-tasting watermelon flesh - lavender and rosemary, with some spearmint - light sweetness, light tartness, a touch of funk - some truly bizarre co-occuring flavors here, but it works surprisingly well
Mouthfeel: Light, smooth, nice carbonation, very drinkable
Overall: Judgment of this beer is not dichotomous; the answer is always "yes"
Jester King makes a lot of odd beers, yet they still can surprise me. The use of spearmint and watermelon juice seriously makes no sense, but somehow they made it work. Yes.
