Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: videofrog on 01-09-2012

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.

Dull grassy taste that's close to a blonde ale.
Slight flavor from the malt, low hops. I wouldn't classify this as a"spicy" saison.
Probably best enjoyed at a warmer than colder temperature.
Overall, not an exciting entry in the Jester King portfolio

A: Pours a murky, dirty looking copper color. A large white head forms that sticks around. Light lace.
S: Mango and peach aromas up front. Slightly tart, spicy phenols linger.
T: Slightly tart fruits of mango and peach. Grainy, dirty malt. A lingering rough bitterness. Plenty of alcohol in the finish. Not much else.
M/D: A medium body and low on the carbonation. Really thin and watery. Even dirty like. I wish this was more crisp and clean. The alcohol is strong. A slow sipper for sure, and not that interesting.

This did not do it for me. Seems to be a theme with some of the newer Jester King offerings. I don't know what it is, I guess I just don't enjoy the new stuff as much as everyone else.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours a clear copper color with a two fingers of loose off white bubbly head that quickly receded to a collar of bubbles. Plenty of carbonation streaming up from the bottom of the glass.

Nose is malty, toasted grain and caramel, a little grassy note. A red apple fruity ester note as it warms.

Taking a sip, malty upfront, caramel, toasted grain, fruity ester, apple and a light clove flavor. Finishes cleanly.

Medium body with plenty of soft carbonation that gently hits the tongue.
