Pours clear vibrant orange. A small bubbly white head that fades quickly. A touch of lacing.

Tart aroma. Light gueuze like aromas of hay, lemons and grape. Slight hint of the oak and whiskey.

Semi-strong lemon/grape tartness up front. Earthy and funky hay/grass with a little pinot grigio flavor through the middle and finishes with some oak and whiskey in the back end. Really pretty good until the aftertaste where the whiskey doesn't fit well with the other flavors.

Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Hides the ABV pretty well. Finishes dry.

Have yet to really be impressed by a Jester King beer. This one is so close. I'd love to try a version that leaves out the whiskey barrels. I feel the base flavor profile and the wine barrels create a delicious combo, but the whiskey butts in at the end and completely clashes leaving an muddied aftertaste and overall lowering the enjoyment of this beer.
