Tsotsi (178) - Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2010
750ml bottle thanks to Orlando crew. Pours a hazy golden color with a big white head. Nose is sour, funk, citrus, slight fruit notes as well. Flavor is the same as the nose but not as sour as I thought it was going to be. Refreshing flavors with the citrus, funk, also get hints of pineapple in the flavor. Nice dry sour finish to it.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2010
750ml bottle, batch #378. Gorgeous packaging. The body is a very cloudy, glowing, yellowish-golden hue with a dense, lasing head of rocky, off-white froth. Thick, solid sheets of lace are well pronounced, clinging hard to the glass. The first whiff draws a smile, as it reveals that familiar, comforting, and unmistakable JP funk. Further contemplation shows notes of spicy rye grain, peppery lemon peel, light coriander, and ultra-dry, fruity, spicy yeast. Flavors show more of the same, again quite spicy with notes of pepper, lemon peel, caraway, and rye grain, all enveloped in the standard woody, bretty house yeast. The palate is very dry, crisp, and parching, which is a welcome departure from standard tripel fare. Very nice brew. Pretty much exactly what I thought Ron Jeffries would do with a tripel.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2010
750ml bottle courtesy of Fiver29 – thanks John! Pours dark gold with a gigantic head. The nose is light barnyard, lemon zest and funk. The taste is funk, citrus peels, peppery yeast and an astringent finish, most likely from the rye. Medium prickly mouthfeel. Interesting brew for sure.

caesar (5128) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2010
Bottled @ Copenhagen 2010. Clear orange color, big rocky head. Aroma of spicy fruit, hint of marzipan. Belgian-like. Bit dry, bit fruity, cherry? Ok brew.

skortila (4513) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2010
Bottle @ Mikkeller bar. The aroma has yeast and is intense citric. Bit hazy, copper-orange coloured beer with an off-white, big head. The taste is yeasty, citric, has apples and spice (pepper, and others). Bit malty background. Nice.

Ibrew2or3 (6890) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Courtesy of SuzyGreenberg. Pours with loads of light tan foam and copper to amber hued body as well as small dark floaties. The aroma has tart notes to go along with a sweet apple like sense and dark fruitiness off in the background. The taste starts with a rush of sweet fruit and a Brett like tartness in equal quantities and then moving more tart and then a bit more spicy and fruity into the finish.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 18, 2010
(on bottle) Clear rusty red, gushing white head. Interesting aromas, stricking as both withheld, yet an intense tartness. Allmost no carbonating left, while drinking, odd for a gushing beer. Still retained in flavours, dry hay, champagne, cork, zinging appels. Slight barley finish, with a tad of alcohol warmth.

thewolf (11184) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2010
Bottle @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Pours a nice, clear orange with a big, frothy, off-white head. Lovely aroma of oak, vanilla, spicy rye and sweet pilsner malts. Great, prickly carbonation, good dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has green apples, wood, pineapple, rye, spiciness, vanilla. Very dry finish with a hint of pepper. Very delicious.
