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 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!
