Draft. Murky medium brownish amber. Small wispy head. Moderate tartness with a good zing. Fuller Light body. Nice fruitiness. Berry. Nice yeasty. Brett. A little dusty, woody. Mild dryness. Not as Brett dominated as other JP beers and one of my favorite JP beers overall. Really good. Comes together really well. Liked it a lot.

Sour funk and malt-forward enough to balance everything out. Really well done - I’d drink this more often if I could get it!

I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber with a off white head. Taste slightly sour, fruity, citrus. I thought this was pretty good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Steve_0 (2592) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle at home. Pour is deep, rusty amber, with a big tan head and great lacing. Funky, caramelly, green apples, pears, straw, sweet tarts, white grapes, and wood in the aroma. Taste is basil, caramel, tart apples, grassy, bread, tangy, herbal, lemony, and orange peel with a lightly tart finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Solid funky offering.

beernbourbon (1297) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle. Pour is an almost-clear amber with a thin layer of tan foam. Aroma is lightly funky and tart with notes of cherry, leather, and red wine. Also a light mineraly earthiness. Flavor is really quite stunning. Up front, tart cherry notes glide across the palate. That gives way to malt vinegar notes followed by earthy tannin and woody notes. Very well-balanced and quite drinkable. A bit more tart than I would expect from a Biere de Garde but I really like it.

Tap pour @Covenhoven. Opaque copper color. Thin head. Tart, cherry nose. Taste follows. Smooth. Lots of cherries. Some strawberry sweetness lurking behind.

Light house jolly pumpkin bretta. Coppery and cloudy with good head and lacing. Finishes with light sourness. Some grapefruit citrus. Nice balance, probably one of my preferred from Jolly Pumpkin. Tap at Churchkey.

Tap @ Fools Gold NYC. Pours a darkish amber with a very thin tan head. Aroma is oak, sour cherries, acidic wine, brett, funky must. Taste is full of funky granny smith apple, white wine / oak barrel, sour grapes, barnyard brett. Really delicious, great balance.. nice tart sour taste.
