Notes/Commercial Description:
A hop forward beer with dank, resinous hop flavor and aroma, balanced by lightly kilned malt flavors, farmhouse yeast esters and a bit of warming alcohol. Thrash Metal Farmhouse Strong Ale is an homage to thrash metal music, which often fuels us during our daily chores at Jester King.

My new favorite beer, and one that is absolutely perfect in every respect. Wonderful turbid appearance, beautiful color, and perfect head formation/retention/lacing. Great earthy and spicy aroma from the house yeast and the liberal use of hops. Taste is out of this world, with a yeast forward spiciness and a nice balance of hops. The wheat addition is also a very nice touch, as it comes through very subtly while adding a thickness to the pleasantly mid-to-full bodied mouthfeel. I really cannot stress how much I love this beer, and it definitely turned me on to Jester King, whose other offerings (Petite Prince was too watery, Wytchmaker was infected and oxidized, Noble King didn't stand out) were nothing too special. Well done, and cheers!

10th review for this beer. Thanks greid!

Deep golden straw color with a thick haze. Frothy white one inch head.

Smells like a Saison, but I know the ABV is too high for that. Pears come to mind, with a steady dose of bananas as well. Spicy smell. The fruit smells very sweet, like banana bread.

That banana bread smell really translates to the taste, but that pear comes through as well. Like a sweetened fruit. I can feel the wheat malt, as it feels like a Weizen Helles Bock. Picture if Weihenstephaner made a Weizenhellesbock, and youd have this.

Very full mouthfeel, but a light body. Just like a Weizenbock.

Thanks to XicanoBeerRun for sharing this beast! I thought this would be a version of their Black Metal imperial stout so imagine my surprise when it poured a cloudy straw color with lots of foam atop! It has a yeasty estery aroma and is flavor-forward with a little sour, some tartness and a lemony note that opens as it warms. Is this a sour saison? Zesty, vibrant, big and not to be messed with!

A- Pours a golden honey orange into my DFH signature glass. A huge, fluffy, citrus tinted white head floats ontop and takes a really long time to fade away. Really nice sticky lacing dripping all over the glass. Has a nice hazy, grainy appearance.

S- Lemons, honey and a nice mild citrus hop note. Really nice malty backbone on this one. Touches of dried bananas, tangerine, necterine and something just a touch musty. Hints of clove, Pink peppercorns and wet grass.

T- A touch tart and sweet all at the same time. Bright notes of lemon with a sweet honey, maltiness. Really big pepper flavors come thru as it warms up. Nice citrusy hop punch! Subtle hints of banana yeastiness, piney stone fruit hops, and fresh cut grass.

M- Really nice carbonation that pops with lemon, thyme and rosemary. Really nice sweet citrus and piney hops that blast your tongue. A really nice balance between the sweet honey malts and the peppery, lemony, herbal hops.

O- Very well balanced! Amazing mix of honey sweet, lemony citrus, floral spring grass, and belgian yeastiness. I gotta trade for a few more of these. Received as an extra in a very generous trade with bentwookie.

Another offering from Jester King Craft Brewery that I decided to try, a 750mL bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A - Thrash Metal Farmhouse Strong Ale has a cloudy darker blood orange color to it. It also poured more of an off-white/cream colored head, but not much, only about 1/2 inch.

S - On the nose I get some grassy notes, citrus, and a barnyard funk type of smell, most likely due to the yeast.

T - On the palate I got a little bit of spice first, followed by plenty of citrus (lemon and orange), not over powering though. This beer finishes with interesting zest of citrus and, grassy flavors. Also interesting of note is the amount of Belgian style malt that comes through.

M - Medium-bodied on the palate, even a bit light due to the higher than expected amount of carbonation I feel. Which surprised me since I didn't get much head on the pour.

O - Another fantastic job by Jester King, Thrash Metal is well done. The beer is well balanced, and I didn't feel that any one flavor was specifically over powering. It has an interesting complexity that you just have to experience for yourself. I have one more bottle I'm going to let age for a little while and see how this beer changes.

Beer pours a hazy ruddy orange with a pillowy off white head that leaves nice web lacing.

Nose is spicy with some astringent hops. I get some orange and citrus with some dry grass.

Taste big, citrusy with a pronounced spiciness. Lemon and lime rinds appear on the finish. Some candy sugar on the mid palate that lingers through as toffee on the finish. The spiciness and the sweetness complement each other beautifully. There's also a very nice floral component on the mid palate.

Mouthfeel is tingly and slick with a nice medium full body.

Overall this is a fantastic belgian strong. Delicious, would love to have it all the time but won't b/c of the price point.

My third or fourth from Jester King. These guys really know what they're doing. From an electrical tape wrapped 750mL bottle into my Darkness snifter. No bottle date.

Pours a hazy light gold. Relatively gentle pour produced a huge, billowy, three finger head. Eggshell white. Very nice retention and some, spotty, sticky lacing.

Tons of spicy and floral esters. Some lemon zest. Classic Jester King farmhouse funk. Some clean alcohol.

Follows the nose in regards to the esters; very spicy. More Belgian malts come through in the middle, and a more prominent funk. Almost Brett-y and a little tart. Still some citrus and grassy hops, moderate bitterness. Warming alcohol in the finish with some more of that tasty farmhouse funk.

Solidly medium in body lightened by the copious carbonation. Very smooth and almost creamy. Hop resins coat the mouth. Whiff of alcohol evaporates off the tongue.

Overall this is another unique and tasty offering from Jester King. Their farmhouse yeast takes center stage with a well done hop profile taking a supporting role. Maybe the best domestic "Belgian" Strong Pale I've had. If you have access to Jester King you are lucky. These guys are going places. Cheers!

Thanks to dirtygrind (Reddit) for this interesting beer, excited for it. Share with rudzud cause he can be a cool guy when he puts his mind to it.

Nice looking fluffy head hits 1/2 finger but looks bubbly and nice, great lacing, pale grapefruit tangerines hazy colored.

Nose very nice, lots of earthy farmhouse saison aromas, light earthy floral spices, nice hops with a grassy undertone, light citrus, like, very earthy leaf like, little tangertine and grapefruit, great farmhouse grassy hay wheat like light funky aroma.

Taste earthy, very nice Belgian flavors, saison, farmhouse, grassy wheat and hay like, little grainy, nice floral spices, light citrus, light fruity esters pear like, little farmhouse funk, light bitterness great grassy earthy hops, little pine, some grapefruit and tangerine like hops, hay grassy flavors, light Belgian golden malts, some esters, little booze. Finish is dry light bitterness, lots of grassy hops, light fruity citrus and grapefruit, earthy farmhouse funk, light floral spices all lingering.

Mouth is med bodied, nice carb.

Overall great, nice Belgian malts and yeast esters, great floral spices, light but good farmhouse funk, saison flavors, nice grassy light grapefruit hops, and very drinkable. Another big winner from jester king.

Pours a nice thick dense almost white head. Golden hazy orange body. A slight touch of lacing and the alcohol legs are quite nice. Head settles to a touch more than a cap.

Am I smelling an IPA or a farmhouse ale? The balance between the two are great. The hops come through with a nice pine, orange zest, sweet citrus, and white grapefruit aroma. A bready maltiness, faint floral, lemons, white grapes, and fruity yeast esters as well.

Creamy orange, light pine, white pepper, and rye bread flavors. Drys out nicely on the backend much like good ipa's/saison's do. The negative thing about that here is the bitterness from the hops and both the saison peppery dry finish clash. Some more hop flavors or sweet malts on the finish would help smooth this out. The aftertaste lingers with a light touch of pine, orange, and wild flower honey (not sticky sweet) that sits on the back of the tongue. A nice full-bodied beer which reveals hardly any alcohol at all. A quick alcohol bite on the middle of the palate but is shoved aside right away.

A truly unique experience here! Very much the farmhouse/saison style blends really nicely with a west coast style DIPA. It seems like a perfect marriage between the two. For me I would like it to lean a little more towards the IPA side. (But then again I am a Hophead) A hit more hop flavor and aroma would've totally blown me away, but I'm still thoroughly impressed. I think the balance is almost spot on. (the finish is my only slight complaint) I have not had a beer like this before. Some farmhouse/saison beers claim to be hopped up, but they can't say that after Thrash Metal has smashed them over the head. Another awesome brew from Jester King!

[93/100]

A - Pours a very hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of strong banana and orange, with some pepper, clove, other spices, farmhouse yeast esters, citrus hops, sweet malt, and a hint of booze.

T - Starts off with some citrus and banana flavor with some orange peel, lemon, and tangerine, with a bit of peppery spice in the background. Through the middle, more yeast character comes through with some clove alongside some sweet malts and a touch of pine hop and bitterness. Finish is a mix of banana, clove, farmhouse yeast esters, citrus flavors, and a hint of booze.

M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, warming, and lightly sweet finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice balance of flavors with some strong citrus notes and malt flavors. The yeast flavor is also solid here.

750ml bottle into an unmarked tulip glass.

Thrash Metal displays a murky, yet brightly colored goldenrod body with a tall cap of off-white foam. Lacing sticks to the edges of the glass. Aroma is rife with notes of tropical fruit, pine, and citrus from the dry-hopping. Belgian esters are phenolic and spicy in the background with a hint of booze chiming in with each sniff.

The flavor matches the aroma fairly well, with big, juicy bursts of orange flesh, pineapple, and mango. The Kent Golding hops are spicy and sharp, distinct yet juxtaposed nicely against the pungent, spicy Farmhouse yeast flavor. The booze is a bit unchecked, here, but it's forgivable. Mouthfeel is creamy thanks to the malted wheat, but spritzy with carbonation all the same. Finishes with a lingering alcohol and phenolic flavor. Overall, a unique offering from Jester King. Definitely a special occasion beer, and worth the effort to obtain.

Appearance: Like all of the Jester King beers, this one is a great looker, with the clear amber liquid capped by a massive head that leaves copious amounts of lace behind

Smell: A combination of the spicy yeast esters and piney hops

Taste: The hops are there from the outset, with a resinous, rotting pineapple character that is joined by the spicy yeast character that becomes quite peppery, in the middle; after the swallow, the spice and resins build to a crescendo that tingles the tongue

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with prickly carbonation; a hint of warmth in the gullet

Overall: Like Unibroue, many of the Jester King beers coverge in the mind due to the yeast they are using but this brewery still manages to create some very interesting brews; this is a very nice one with some powerful flavors

A: This pours a very nice dark copper orange body with a thick white head that slowly fades and leaves a lot of lace on the side of the glass.

S: There is a strong amount of malt at first and it also has a nice bit of hops. It seems very sweet and fruity too.

T: The first thing I recognize is the nice hops on the palate. The big lingers for a long time and then has a very pleasant malt taste.

M: This to me is the best part of the beer. It is so smooth and easy to drink. When I pour it into my mouth it has a nice fluffy feeling that goes down with ease. There is a tiny bit of crispness too.

O: Just another very solid beer released by Jester King. If you see this, def get it!

The beer pours a light golden yellow with no head. The nose is outstanding with big notes of yeast, citrus fruit, and sugary sweetness. The taste doesn't translate with an overly hoppy, slightly gross aftertaste. I honestly don't like the intense hoppiness of this beer, it doesn't stay as clean as its nose. Overal I probably won't try this beer again, not my style.

750 mL bottle pours a very hazed, medium gold color with a tiny-bubbled white head. Average retention and very nice lacing.

Light tropical hop aroma and a bit of underlying tartness. Has a chalkiness to it...kinda like Smartees candy. Some touches of red apples and grape skins. Interesting smelling brew, the yeast has done some funky stuff here, for sure.

Definitely a nice American-made BSPA here, lots of character. Thick body and the hops are tamer than I thought they would be, maybe equal parts flavoring and bitterness. The mouthfeel is very nice...carbonation is very fine and the creaminess is awesome. I am surprised that the hops and yeast mix so well here, most times I find it to be a clashing combination. Hides the ABV well. It shows off the yeast very well and I am quite impressed by this offering. I'll buy a few more if I can find 'em, even though I dont think this one would fare well in the cellar...I fear many will try however just because of the Belgian heritage and high ABV.

Poured into a brandy snifter. Pours hazy orange with some sediment and an off-white, fluffy head and plenty of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. There is some lacing left on the side of the glass. The aroma is strongly of Farmhouse esters. There are some white wine characteristics to the aroma as well. I can also detect some hops and the malt. The taste really hits those Saison notes. There is that barnyard funk with spice and citrus. Those white wine notes are noticeable as well. There are some pine and grassy characteristics coming through from the hops as well. The hops really come through in the back end bringing a nice bitterness to the beer. There's a nice malty backbone that is grainy and sweet. It's nicely well balanced. The alcohol is present in the taste, but it is not overpowering. The body is light with abundant carbonation. The finish is slightly dry and the carbonation lends crispness. The lighter body makes what this strong ale easy to consume. This really is an excellent beer.

Poured into a Duvel Tulip.

Thrash Metal is a foggy, peach color. Definitely unfiltered and fresh, as there are white lace-marks clinging to the glass. A nice inch-thick head initially appeared but quickly subsided to leave a nice white ring sitting as the crown of the brew.

Sweet citrus hops pop over fresh grain, musk, and sour, tangy saison yeast. The aroma is farmhouse all the way, delicious and inviting; everything a saison or a "rustic" beer should be.

The hops are less dominate on the palate, but still very apparent. The zesty, tangerine/orange flavor blends in extremely well with the funkiness of the yeast. The 9.3% of the brew that is alcohol peeks its head around the corner, especially as the beer warms, and is a welcome addition to the sweet twang of flavors. This mutha tastes goood!

Unfortunately, Thrash Metal is too thin. If it was beefed up a little more, it would make the beer about 10x better; it's a pretty good saison, but could be really great if it didn't finish so weakly. It's nice sour finish is wiped away too quickly. I want a saison that's going to hang around on my palate, especially at 9.3% abv.

Overall a pretty solid brew, I just wish it was a little thicker! I'd definitely buy this one again. Cheers, Jester King.

The beer pours a hazy yellow-pink color with a small white head. The aroma has some orange and pine notes from the hops as well as grass, Belgian yeast, spices and biscuit malt. The flavor has quite a bit of orange and pine, with some biscuit malt, coriander, white pepper and yeast notes. The alcohol is well hidden when the beer is cold, but gets a little more noticeable as it warms. There is quite a bit of hop flavor but the bitterness is low. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Thanks to Lee for this one! Review from notes.

A: Pours a hazy golden/orange color with a nice white head on top (not a massive billowy one like some other JK beers I have had). Nice head retention with moderate lacing.

S: Surprising amount of citrus, lots of orange zest and grapefruit. Some grainy malt and bready and a little bit of spice.

T: More of the same, lots of citrus, mostly orange zest and tangerine with some peppery spice. Sort of reminds of a "white" ipa I had.

M: Medium to full bodied with no sign of the abv at all. Pretty smooth.

O: Another solid beer from Jester King. A hopped up saison really.

a beautiful golden / light copper pour with 2 fingers of head which stayed quite foamy throughout the session. smells of pepper, lemongrass, spicy yeast, banana, strawberry.. lots of nice scents, slightly funky. lots of sweet malt are present, alongside of a spicy booze heavy citrusy drink. lots of yeast, pepper, coriander, slight orange peel flavor..
medium body, nicely carbonated, a bit on the heavy/hot side.. which is AWESOME especially for the freezing cold night we're having. a wonderful saison, on the heavy side, so it's a bit abrasive, however it's a great sipper. very flavorful, with a slight dry finish.

Had this served on-tap at the Draught House in Austin in an imperial half-pint glass.

A: Cloudy light orange; nice head that settles quickly. Lacing only left at top of glass.

S: Definitely a hop-forward farmhouse ale. Resiny hops followed by Belgian funk; light malts in the background.

T: Taste follows the smell; yeasty esters more apparent. Alcohol lets you know it's there without being overbearing. Great warming effect for rainy or cold days.

M: A little on the thick side, but appropriate for such a big ale.

O: Made me think of a hoppy, funky, not quite as complex, Duvel. That's why I designated it as a BSPA, but feel free to edit me on that one. Really enjoyed this one; will grab a bottle when it's released.
