Koelschtrinker (10486) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 8, 2012
Sehr frischer und klarer Säurebeginn, breit, dafür mild, passende Herbe. Apfelnoten, trockene Säure. Erdig, das Bier besitzt einen leichten Essigstich. Zum Ende weiter trocken, eher Limette. Sehr gut! 9/12/11/13/12/12

Lukaduke (2141) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle from JStax. Pours a nice pale golden color with a big fizzy four finger head that laces a bit and falls but keeps a cap throughout the beers life. On the nose... lots of basement funk, sweet citrus and floral touches, bits of sharp cheese.... on the palate it comes across softer than I was expecting and very well balanced. Big sour orange flavors with a bit of bitterness, funk, lime, vinegar lead into a tart dry finish...grassy floral. Yum.

sunevdj (3152) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2012
Sour and Bitter 2012. Bottled. Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Light to medium sweetness with some bitterness and tartness. Light aromas of grapefruit, horse blanket with hints of earth. Medium bodied. Soft carbonation. Bitter finish. Lovely balanced.

SrSilliGose (3248) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 1, 2012
Blend one from december 2010. Bottle hooked up by pampdogg. Aroma of dusty, cobweb cellar funk. Sharp lemon acidity. Taste is toast and light toast. Touch of spoiled milk. Some ginger. Dry rustic leaves. Pretty good stuff. Dry. Somewhat harsh at times. But tasty.

crosamich (431) - Twin Falls, Idaho, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Blend 2, 2011. No way this is only 15% lambic. Tart, dry, lemon. Some funk and horse in the nose but taste is fairly clean. Maybe it is the mouthfeel as heavy but something is slightly amiss. Some bandaid on the back end.

tom10101 (2716) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle (330 ml). Thanks to Pier-Luc for sharing this one! Unclear golden with a small persistent white head and some lacing. There was some particles in my glass that make the beer loose an appearance point but it’s still a good looking beer. Nice aroma where the Saison yeast is recognizable but the lambic take most of the place. Notes of citrus (lemon, grapefruit), green apple and brett with funky barnyard notes. Taste of fruits (lemon, grapefruit, green apple and grapes), wood and good sourness. Mouthfeel is dry. Good carbonation. This beer is a very good blend and probably the best JP beer I’ve had so far.

Sammy (8552) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2012
Perhaps mellow after 2 years but still the foamer. Dark brown, with initially lots of foam. Neutral aroma. A wild ale, some acidity, but not that sour. How shall I say it, dish soap soapy residue aftertaste? Good drinkability, though just OK. Thanks for the rarer one in these parts, FlanderNed.

callmemickey (2689) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Blend #1. Hazy orange body, small-ish white head, whisps of lacing. Nose is quite bretty with hay, cheese, lemon, and some earthiness. Flavor is similar, with a nice unblended lambic vibe going on--a bit raw. Medium bodied, quite acidic and generally tart. A very respectable offering from JP.
