BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Jester King Brewery
Texas, United States
jesterkingbrewery.com

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Notes / Commercial Description:
A clear and simple expression of the delicate interplay between noble hops and farmhouse yeast. Throughout Northern Europe, light-bodied, well-hopped, low alcohol table beers were often the beverage of choice with all meals at times and in places where the water wasn’t always safe to drink.

got this bottle at a localish beer shop probably 2 years ago at this point....and it was on the blowout vintage bin for probably a buck or a few at the time. it is quite probable that this is the first batch of this beer so bear that in mind...

brew looks nice enough with a translucent orange and a finger of frothy head that dissipates to a thin layer of fizz that hangs on the surface. very lively effervescence. nose is heavy mineral over light sweet grassiness. the taste is more of the same, but I'm overwhelmed by the mineral flavor. it really tastes like water...kind of like when you fill your glass at a tasting with water so that you can both rinse your glass while also hydrating...the end result is beer flavored water. that's this...no, beer flavored seltzer. not really my bag. I could see this being a nice beer to sip out in the sun on a REALLY hot day and I could drink this if I had to, but I don't.

Well this is certainly an interesting and unique beer. Being that 90% of beers that describe themselves that way are often uninteresting, not unique and well, shitty, . . . we shall see.

Pours very light, some cloudiness to it, 1/4" white head. Lemon funk very mild but noticeable in the aroma.

Taste is a well carbonated mild saison essentially. Session saison. Bitterness is above what was expected, they hopped this thing. A little bit of spice rack in the mouth feel. A tiny bit of hay to it. I liked it but also found it to be cost prohibitive, so prolly would not seek out again even though it was a good beer.

Very clean. crisp, lager like, almost a kolsch-like body, flavor & mouthfeel. Very dry. Slightly sulfuric on the palate. Very delicate Brett characteristics come through in the finish. Horse blanket, Leather. Such a great expression of a farmhouse beer.

Pours a hazy blonde color like apple juice with about a inch inch head that quickly dissipates and leaves zero lacing. Hints of apples and flowers hit your nose. Upon tasting you get the same apples along with citrus of like Lemon, along with notes of pear. This is not my usual type drink of choice, but I have been wanting to get something from Jester King for a long time it's not available in my area. Just wish it was something of a darker variety.

Pours a clear golden color with a bit of sediment floating, two finger soapy white head settles slowly to a thin layer, nice sheet of lace partway down the glass. Smell: floral and lightly grassy with notes of corn bread, dried apple, unripe pear, and black pepper. Taste: citric in a lemon-lime way, grassy, lightly doughy, notes of: green apple, pepper, coriander, thyme, pear. Light bodied but with enough carbonation and peppery/herbal blast in the finish that it feels like a bigger beer than it is. Really nice low abv saison.
11/2015 bottling.

Batch #18 - 11.18.2015

Lightly hazy blonde color with a nice, authentic-looking frothy white foam head. Fresh, rustic aroma of flowers, apples, dough, grits, and pepper. Flavor opens with a crisp grainy sweetness followed by hay, crackers, granola, and a leafy noble hop bitterness. Light, crisp, frothy feel finishing snappy. Refreshing as intended - a satisfying table beer that would pair well with food.
