Notes/Commercial Description:
Medium strength, dry, golden ale brewed with our farmhouse yeast, and, as its name suggests, an abundance of noble, European hops. Thoroughly hoppy, yet elegant, dry, balanced, and drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: This pours a nice orange cloudy body, with a thick white head that slowly fades.

S: There is a good amount of Belgian yeast, some malt and a tiny bit of hops. The beer has a nice fruit smell, but it is also a little weak.

T: Just like the smell, it has a good amount of fruity flavors and a bit of malt. The beer fades very fast

M: Now the mouthfeel of this beer is beyond amazing! It is so smooth and only has a slight bit of carbonation on the back of the mouth and tongue.

O: Just another very good quality beer from jester King. There isnt any part of this beer that is bad and only wish this came in a 6 pack.

New Wild Ale batch

A: Cloudy orange body

S: Bit of funk, yeast and wheat

T: This beer has a delicious wild ale flavor to it and really ages well

M: Strong carbonation.

Golden appearance.Very tart, crisp. Very citrusy. Good refreshing beer for a warm day. Not heavy. Almost has a champagne taste (I hate champagne) but turns citrusy. Really impressed me. This is the first beer of its kind I've tried and enjoyed extremely. Since then I've sought out many similar types.

25.4 oz. bottle poured into tulip
November 2013 batch

L: murky yellow, almost looks like orange juice or mango juice; white foam head, not huge

S: lemon, sour apple ... sour is the key note

T: sour ... lemony and with some grain but mostly lemons. no hops whatsoever

F: nice, solid all around with plenty of carbonation

O: super tart and not much else, which is definitely saison-like. But this is a letdown for a handful of reasons, notably the hoppy lion on the bottle and "Noble" in the title of the beer that promises to deliver hops (it doesn't) and the over-hype of the brewery, which is a favorite among the beer geeks in Texas but hasn't delivered a memorable beer for me so far.

after this one, I'm done with Jester King for awhile. i'm not a big sours fan, so there's no reason to bother.
