3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle. Nut brown shade with patchy foam. Aroma of vinegar, grape skin, apple and all that darker malt brings. Taste has cherry, malty nuttiness, oak. Slight sourness going on. If I didn’t know better I’d say there was an infection, but I’m new to JP and maybe that’s just the way they do things. Not wholly convinced by it anyway.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was just OK. Fruity and some roasted aromas, maybe charred wood . Probably the darkest saison I’ve had as it looked like a dark brown ale. The palate was pretty light and the carbonation relatively low. More of the same with roasted and fruity flavors, slightly tart at the end. Average and not as good as the regular Bam.
