Luk_ (197) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours amber with very small head. Aroma is very woody, bretts and red fruits. Taste has a fruity sourness, vinegar notes, earth and wood. Not my favourite from JP, but a decent flanders red.

MacBoost (1331) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle from trade, as jolly pumpkin has pretty much pulled distro from my area. Pours a hazed Amber with a large just off white head. Aromas of oak and malt. Taste is semi dry and lightly tart. Flavors of oak, oak, oak. Probably the most oak forward beer I’ve ever had. This is almost like liquid, sour oak...which isn’t a bad thing. Finish is dry and lightly tart with some funk. Excellent.

BMMillsy (1438) - Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Big bottle from Tipples. Batch 281/283, bottle 2/20/14. Poured 10/20/14. Pours beautifully clear amber color with a super creamy two finger off white head. Aroma is mostly bready malts with some light grass and a bit of toffee sweetness, and just a hint of barnyard funk. Flavor is on the sweeter side, lots of fruits--apples, cherry, pears--some very sweet caramel malts, a hint of spices, and some funky yeast character. Lightly sour with some lightly dry oak character. Medium plus bodied, and could use a bit more carbonation to lighten things up. Overall, a nice beer for the fall, but wondering if I should have popped it when it was fresher, as it comes in a bit on the sweet side without much hay/hop/funky yeast notes that I was hoping for here.

RexTalionis (2532) - FINLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy amber in color with an off-white head. Nice barnard notes, damp garden fruity atmosphere, tart cherries and oak in aroma. Lemon, tart fruityness, some dark ripe fruits in taste at first. Sour notes later on, some hints of vanilla and vinegar too. Quite the tart finish but there’s also some soft maltyness mixed together with that nice sour funky in the end.

Jow (2207) - New York, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Tap at the Jeffrey. Pours flat ruby but still appealing looking. Nose is wood and tart cherry. Tastes of sour cherry, grapefruit, light pine, wet fresh wood, and some cough syrup. Tart drying palate.

Ionlyrate5s (100) - New York, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Another one of my favorite styles. Sour lemon malty...so balanced in aroma and flavor. Such great carbonation like a champgne. Very dry and so summer like. I loved this brew all around.

Ferris (4526) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
Draft - Orange, spice and lightly soured malts. Cloudy gold with a decent beige head. Soured malts and some light spice. Light clean tartness.

Petkus331 (272) - Redford, Michigan, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Leather and tangy cranberry with mild sweet peach standout in the aroma, a touch of earthy dirt, in a good way. Appears reddish copper with white lace and foam. Tastes of hay, bitter grapefruit rind, sweet prune, and a hint of sour unripe peach. Palate is mouth filling and mildly fizzy. Overall, this is a great beer.

Deep copper colour. Fruity sour aroma. Taste is sour, funky, fruity, nice beer
