Jester King Brewery Queen’s Order (Batch #2) Saison at 4.8% ABV | 34 IBU (C$23.99 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 750 ml, packaged on 1-Apr-2018, acquired 7-Sep-2018, reviewed 28-Jan-2019)

Appearance: bright clear straw with one fat finger of rocky white head, good retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: honey & beeswax, lemon flesh & zest, floral, light funk. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter, light funk. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate-high carbonation, dry lightly funky finish. (4/5)

Light, easy-drinking, and refreshing. Somewhat out of character for JK, the Brett is mild and doesn’t overwhelm the nose or the head. Equally surprising is the way the big honey aroma isn’t followed through by similar levels of sweetness, but instead a refreshing dry bitterness. A very true-to-style rendition. (16/20)
