Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 2, 2010
Here is the story; I left my house last night, going to the hospital with my wife. 4½ hours later I return with my new born son Melvin, a perfect little boy. Sitting in my couch at 1 am looking at him I need something to celebrate and find my newly arrived EYO from JP in the fridge. It might be the situation or it might just be the beer, but this is the most perfectly balanced beer I can remember having since.....well since Orval maybe. Fruit, funk, drinkability is just perfect. It makes me think, this is the kind of beer thats the reason I’m in the beer business, the reason I started drinking craft beers to begin with. Thanks a lot JP and cheers to my new son Melvin! I will take you to Dexter when you are old enough so that you can experience maybe the greatest brewery in the world for yourself!

ctipping (228) - Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2015
750 mL bottle poured into a cervoise. Hazy red body. Nice white head. Almost smells fruity. Mostly floral. Light acidity. Strong yeast flavor. Floral flavors behind it lend some sweetness. Slightest hint of tartness dies down quickly. Light body with high carbonation. Not bad, but not very exciting.

Dogbrick (9460) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2015
This beer is a bright reddish-orange color with a thick white head that diminishes gradually. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, florals and yeast. Medium body with flavors of fruity yeast, hibiscus and biscuit malt. The finish is floral and fruity with an herbal yeast aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

02.23.2012 bottle, poured on 05.30.2015. Heavy ruby with a golden white frothy head. The aroma is the Jolly Pumpkin funk, the taste of rose petals is there, but is almost cherry like. Very great with age. Just wow.

NachlamSie (2973) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2015
1 pint 9 oz bottle from Mile High. This beer is a gorgeous deep red with a firm, everlasting white head. A little haze is apparent in the body. The aroma is a little funky, as expected from JP. Notes of barnyard come through with firm and balanced rose hips and hibiscus. The palate is appropriately spritzy and soft on the tongue. Man, this is a dry beer. It’s awesome. The hibiscus and rose hips are not subtle, but so naturally work with the base beer. Notes of coriander come through along with hints at straw, cheese, barnyard and lime zest. It’s pleasantly tart throughout. Another offering from JP which just reeks of craftsmanship.

stangger (608) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2015
On tap at Teresa’s. Floral, rosy aroma. Slight malt, funky, sour, tartness with a spicy floral bite. Quite good but not overpowering. Subtly sour.
