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.

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.

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.

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!

Pours a murky honey orange with a 1 inch foamy orange-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks and dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, spices, yeast, and some herbal hop aromas. Taste is of citrus zest and alcohol up front with malty finish. There is a mild level of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but there is something in the taste that I can't put my finger on that is a bit odd.
