1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
2nd October 2010
Persistent slow gusher - mmmmm! Cloudy amber beer, big white head (no surprise!). Lightly sour nose! Light palate - dry and crisp. Creamy malt with fruit and spice. Acidic and sour fruits - dry and yeasty. Light and airy but itís infected I beleive and there is not enough here to make me think itís worth a re-rate. Overdry and bolloxed.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: An original rustic big blond Belgian ale, like a cranked up Saison, very good
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed probably fresh, pplit three-way, thanks to the Trois-RiviŤres comedic duo
The look: Cloudy dark blonde body topped by a medium off-white head
In long: Nose is moderately rye, some dry grass, rustic yeast, musty woody notes (although no wood/barrels here). Taste is crunchy grainy pale malts, very rustic/barnyard, a bit bretty/leathery, rye presence is very discreet, fruity notes of pears. Finishes dry. Drinks more like a big Saison than a Triple per say. I really liked that beer. The Beaudelaire series is far from the usual JP signature funky beers but they are just as good. After that beer we went back to the party, I got drunk again and broke stuff, because when Iím drunk I turn perfectly working items into dozens of useless smaller parts. Basically when Iím drunk Iím like a reverse MacGyver.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled, 0.75l, rated 2011-07-22) Hazy copper with HUGE amounts of foam (had to pour the beer in three glasses right away). Sour, berry-malty and sweetish nose. Flavor is sweet and berryish, with lots of sourness and some green apple. Some rye maltiness, too, and alcohol not completely hidden despite the sweetness. Medium body, foamy CO2. All the JP beers are from the same mold, but this is not among the best of them.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Slight gusher. Amber pour with frothy dirty white head. Aroma is very rye forward, tons of brett, JP funk, some belgian yeast, quite spicey and yeasty. Taste is tart, lots of grain, tripel yeast, bready, a tad of alcohol. Palate is good, full bodied with prickly carbonation, long finish.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.75 l - batch 378, at Pikkulintu, 20110708) Gusher. The beer poured amber and a little bit hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sourness, spices, fruitiness and rye bread. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, fruitiness, sourness, sweetness, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was sour, fruity and bitter. Not the best JP brew.
