12 oz. poured from bottle into Jester King snifter at the brewery 5/14/2017

L: cloudy gold, nearly 100% opaque, huge fluffy head of foam over 1 1/2-inches tall and super sticky; not much lacing but it keeps a thick sudsy collar and 60-70% of skin from a ton of activity

S: tart lemon, lemon peel, earthy kumquats, super dry white wine; some Jester King barn must but the tartness is arguably clean and not overly funky

T: dark, toasted wood, dry coffee beans, something earthy ... not peat but close, charred wood; starts off like a Flanders red with that toasted cranberry flavor then pulls back all the cranberry sweetness as the aftertaste hits

F: light-middleweight, full from carbonation with a creamy ale-soft finish

O: unique ... those mesquite beans are doing something wild in this brew, and early on it truly has a coffee/coffee bean flavor; as the palate adjusts and the beer warms, it gets harder to name the darker toasted-malt flavor, but it is similar to toasted cranberries; a beer I definitely want to revisit

750ml bottle, batch #1 10.19.16. Served in a stemmed glass. Pours a darker orange body, two finger big white head, good retention, rings of lacing. Smell is tart lemon, stonefruit, oranges, zest, kumquats and a bit of earthy, sort of vinous character. Flavour is tart but not sour, dry but not vinegary, mild zest, a bit of lemon, kind of a dry earthy bark character but it isn't astringent by any means, and maybe some lightly ground coffee bean? Not sure. Interesting beer, that's for sure. Mouthfeel is medium-lighter bodied, dry but not quite so dry that you have to wait in between sips. It works well, and has an unique flavour to it, presumably tied to the time, place, and people.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass. Cloudy golden yellow with a bit of brown, nice head and lacing. The smell is great, sour, sweet, orange, cherries and maybe a bit of watermelon. The fruit carries over to the taste with some nut and earth flavor that compliment the slightly sour cherry taste. Very nice, complex beer.

Pours a cloudy hazy light orangish color with fizzy white head. A sweet-tartness, somewhat like the candy, oak, funk, and some citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with a light tartness mellowed out by a molasses style sweetness.
