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.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing this bottle.

A - Poured into a standard Kate the Great tulip a hazy golden straw hue with a thin light blanket. Light lacing.

S - Aromas of light farmhouse funk ans fruity esters just very inviting .

T - Taste is quite different and unique. Light farmhouse with gentle hay and citrus. Good esters with a light boozy.

M - Mouthfeel is pretty good, in line with other jester king beers.

O - Overall I enjoyed this unique beer from jester king. Glad I got to try it

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.
