Jester King - Wytchmaker [Farmhouse Rye IPA] (750ml --->Dogfish Head Curved Pint Glass : 7.3% ABV : 55 IBU : FG 1.000)

When popping the cap in this beer, it barely made a sound, but I set it down for a second and it began foaming over like CRAZY!! So needless to say it was somewhat unexpected and leads me to believe this could be HIGHLY overcarbonated, but we shall see... It pours a fairly hazy gold with about a 2 inch head that it supported by plenty of carbonation, it has left a great deal of lacing and quite the retentive cap!! First on the nose is a nice strong spicy funk, with some fresh bananabread in there as well, playing backup... First taste is again the spicy funk, but it's very approachable and blends well with soft citrus/mango hop flavors also there... Mid palate the bitterness kicks in and brings with it some earthy grass notes, but finishes rather smooth with a few faint hints of orange zest and bananabread again... Mouthfeel on the beer is excellent as it suited the flavors very nicely, and varied from what it's visual cues were indicating it would be like... It didn't feel overcarbonated, and in fact finished satiny smooth, which was delightfully pleasant... Overall I'm extremely pleased with this beer, all of its' elements harmonized very well and am looking forward to trying more from this brewery... Another great brew - Cheers!!

4 oz cask pour into a wine glass at Jester King Brewery. Lightly hazy, light gold with slight pink hue; no head but a little lacing and hazy white top. Lots of sour, funky farmhouse notes in the aroma. Tart, white wine flavors tempered by herbal, bitter hops and spicy rye.
