Notes/Commercial Description:
A clear and simple expression of the delicate interplay between noble hops and farmhouse yeast. Throughout Northern Europe, light-bodied, well-hopped, low alcohol table beers were often the beverage of choice with all meals at times and in places where the water wasn’t always safe to drink.

Pretty good table beer. Served with a nice off white head that lasts all the way down. Coldor is a hazy golden amber. Aroma is yeast, fruit, malt. Flavor's distinctively dry, yeast bitter with a bit of hop, and carbonic tang. Body is crisp and good cairbonation. Finish is like flavor, refreshing and, perhaps a bit too dry for me right now, but great at the table.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A- cloudy golden with a white head that surprises me a bit with how well it retains. Super carbonated

S- bready, citrus notes, some grass/herbs come through but I'm mainly getting citrus and bread

T- I get a real light citrus, some light grass and almost no hops, a real dry finish. I wasnt expecting much flavor given that its so low alcohol, but I'm pleased. Imagine club soda with a touch of lemon, yeast and some grass.

M- SUPER carbonated. Fizzy as hell. Champagne like here. I find myself burping a lot drinking this, I don't like that. However the mouthfeel goes hand in hand perfectly with the flavor

O- I expected something really light and ultimately low in flavor but I really wanted to try it. It has lots of flavor for its ABV, I imagine its great in the heat. I could drink this all day as its real easy drinking and nothing dominates the flavor. I wouldn't drink this all the time, but I could see this being a good option in the summer, or especially when you're with BMC drinkers and wanna give them a light easy drinking beer. Pleasantly surprised.

Jester King should be the king of small beer's, this beer has a very soft mouthfeel and sexy aroma that is hard to put into words. The hop aroma wasn't overpowering and the taste was awesome for a table beer. The price point is crazy at $7.99 for a 750ml, it's worth every dime and then some.

Great job.

From a 750 ml brown bottle. Pours out a hazed straw hue, fluffy white head that slowly settles to a thick cap with sticky lacing.

Clean mild citrusy aroma, soft wheat with some tame sharp yeast.

Soft wheat accompanied by soft citrus zest up front in the flavour, along with a mild acidic yeasty zip.

Mouthfeel is equally soft as the flavour, light-bodied with a smooth texture and light spritzy carbonation.

When trying to sum this up the first word that pops into mind is pleasant. It's a pleasant little beer that is meant to be easy drinking and quenching without being bland, and it accomplishes that quite well.

On tap at Roscoe Village Pub, in conjunction with WLV for Zwanze 2012.

A: Mellow orange body with a small white head.

S: Very light grain, citrus, and mild yeasty esters. Smells like a somewhat hoppy saison.

T: Mild clove, citrus, cakey, grain in the finish. Slightly sweet yet dry.

M: Light, active carbonation.

O: I was surprised by this beer. It's essentially a dry, low alcohol saison, and it's quite tasty.

Serving type: on-tap
