Hazy yellow with big white head. Aroma of citrus hops, oak, spice and clove. Tart, Flemish aspect to it. Zesty, herbal flavor with pepper, wood, clove and lemon.

Mild JP funk on the nose with spicy aromas. Pours a pale amber with a thick white head. Mild funk, rye flavors, nice spicy flavors. Very nice!

Sparky (2133) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2010
750ml bottle courtesy of Fiver29 Ė 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.

hirigalzkar (2115) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2010
Bottle. The appearnce is spectacular! Huge, huge creamy and long lasting head. Definitely 5/5! The rest of the beer is not that good. Kind of boring for being a Jolly Pumpkin beer. Sour, dry and with a lot of rye.

illidurit (2051) - Petaluma, USA - JUN 7, 2010
Bottle courtesy of iceicebaby. Pours a hazy dark orange color with a huge fluffy khaki head. Aroma is a first lemony, then appley, then spices like nutmeg and clove come into play, giving it a fleeting apple pie character. Flavor is nice and funky, really bretty and with some phenolics as well. Probably the closest thing to Orval other than Orval that Iíve tasted. There are lots of parallels: orange color, fruity aroma, bretty flavor, bone dry finish, high-but-soft carbonation. The mouthfeel is spot-on Orval. Really not much in the tripel department. Definitely not an ester-forward beer. But thatís fine with me. Orval is incredible, and this sorta-clone is great too.

3-2-10 bottle at JP Cafe. Cloudy golden, orange highlights, huge head, plenty of carbonation. Aroma has a heavy dose of rye up front, really woody, sweaty horse, hints of fruit. Flavor is dominated by the rye spiciness, with hints of wood and fruit, not much else. Mouthfeel is spritzy like 7-up, subtracts a little. Even letting it breath for quite awhile, still retains the carbonation. Solid triple, just not a style Iím really into.

finol (1978) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2010
Bottle. Pours golden brown with a huge and long lasting cloud-looking head, impressingly firm! Fruity and semi sweet with lots of rye in the taste.

hallinghansen (1737) - Odense S, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle @ Odense tasting. Hazy amber body with a large white head. Aroma is sourish, berries, alcohol and light peppar notes. Flavor is alcohol, light sourish, yeast and fruit.

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.

changeup45 (1708) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Bottle from splax23. Batch 378. Dirty gold color and pours with a booming head but not a gusher. Fruity esters in the aroma along with cloves, mild spice, flowers, and the trademark JP funk. The flavors are spicy and dry. Fruity notes; tangerine, sharp citrus. This has some grainy notes and a little bit of the rye comes through as well that I didnít really get in the aroma. Lots of funky yeast provides another element but I expect nothing else from JP. Very dry in the finish with a little alcohol sneaking in there. A very nice beer. Tastes more like a Saison than a Triple to me and Iíve got no problem with that at all.
