Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this beer

Consumed 12/11/13

Appearance: Medium orange with some gold and honey tones - hazy, lightly cloudy - pours with a medium cap, fades to a few wisps - leaves some nice lacing

Smell: Very aromatic and decidedly Jester King - some really nice funky notes - some citrus (orange, grapefruit) and some tropical notes - a ton of wood, and some nice, earthy aromas - some other light fruits, with some light malts in the background

Taste: Nicely funky flavors and some tropical highlights - some grass and straw notes - some orange and grapefruit - vaguely tropical fruits - some tartness, and some earthy sourness - musty, damp, lactic - floral, with a ton of wood - some pale malts as well - finishes pretty clean

Mouthfeel: Medium body, nicely carbonated, smooth, clean

Overall: Das Jester King consistency

This beer probably would be mind-blowing if I haven't had any barrel-aged Jester King beers in the past. But I have. This is very similar to some other (great) Jester Kings beers. Some nice funk, fruit, and wood flavors. Great stuff, even if it reminds me of other beers.
