Poured this into a grand cru glass and it is a golden color. It gave me about 2 inches of head and you can't see through the brew when you put up to the light. The smell is a metallic funk but it tastes very good. You get a slight sour taste with a light oak taste that compliments the brew. Overall it's an easy and tasty drinker.

This beer was not very good. It felt like an experimental homebrew that the brewery bottled to make some money from unsuspecting fans.

Yet another disappointing beer from the Jester King lineup.

Tart and refreshing. Light on the tongue, but wonderfully substantial. Nose is all morning dew and apple, with just a tough of breadiness. The wheat-bread and biscuit notes mix on the tongue with a honey-ish sweetness and a crisp finish. Very little in the spice department. Utterly drinkable.

This is a really nice basic saison. It hits all the notes you expect from the style. Nice carbonation, nice funkiness, and easy to drink. It didn''t blow me away, but was a really nice refreshing drink and would be perfect for a hot summer day.

Batch 15 (Feb 2014). This has greatly improved since fresh. The funk and sour have really come out and the citrus has fallen back a little bit to create what I think is the perfect balance.
