Deep golden with amber highlights. Honestly the color reminds me of apple juice. Thin layer of minuscule bright white head. A bit hazy with very vibrant carbonation bubbles throughout. I get pears,apples ,earthiness,and peppery notes with an overall sweetness in the aroma. Mouth is highly carbonated,crisp,and refreshing. The front of the palate is sweet with pears and green apples. I get a bit of tartness in the finish from the souring bacteria which is a good contrast.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this beer
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.
