I love the Jester King Farmhouse Ales and this one is great.

Look: semi-clear golden and slightly amber hue with a thick solid frothy snow-white head.

Aroma: It has a wonderful cedar and citrus aroma

Taste: The taste is woody/cedar, citrus, grapefruit, mango, pine, elements of an IPA.

Feel: It is light, juicy, and fresh tasting.

I am not a Jester King fan at all. But this is top notch. Beautiful, hoppy, complex, earthy... it's really what I hope for whenever I'm lured into buying a bottle of Jester King. Usually, you end up getting repeatedly punched in the face by yeast. Not the case here. The yeast is there, but it is subtle behind layers of hops and woody-earthy-freshness. These layers take this from a very nice pale ale to a world-class beer. Cheers.

L: Pours a hazy copper gold color, pours a huge white head that dissipates pretty slowly with lots of fingers of white lacing remaining on the glass.

S: Floral hops, with citrus and pine. A nice aroma of cedar in the background. Hints of Saison yeast and some pepper and spice. Toasted grain and malt in the background.

T: Citrus and floral hops backed up by pine. A nice spice and pepper from the yeast, with a mix of toasted grain and cedar.

F: Light body higher carbonation
