Bottle shared by joebrew, pours a hazy coppery golden brew with a light tan head. Aroma is tart fruit, melon, and grassy hops. The flavor is lightly carbonated, some fruitiness with tastes of caramel and toffee. Finish is spicey with some nutmeg and yeast. Nice fruity aftertaste.

750ml, 07 vintage. pours a glowing dark orange with off white head. nose is pretty funky with hint of citrus in the background. flavor seems rather bland and one dimensional. a hint of orange and some hay, sorta harsh charred wood too. mouthfeel is watery. aftertaste is harsh and unpleasant. by far my least favorite JP beer. still after all my complaining, i drank the whole 750ml, and it was tasty, i just have high expectations for his beloved brewery.

Thanks to joebrew for sharing. Plenty of head on this gold colored pour. This bottle didn’t exploded like the last JP we opened, which was a pleasant surprise. Excellent spicy nose with some nutmeg, cinnamon, and something I don’t recognize. Ripe fruit taste.

Hazy amber/orange with a huge head. Very good lacing. Good retention, with interesting foamy shapes. Aroma is brett, caramel malt and oak. Taste was brett and tropical fruits with sweet malt. More sweet than many of their other brews. But it still has the tangy texture. Another fine brew from JP.

Medium brown with a small white head. Great sour nose with a starburst like sweetness. Great spicy nutmeg, cinnamon, on the mid-palate with a great ripe fruit edge to it. There is a spice I can’t decipher, but it is great nonetheless. Killer dry finish with a good lingering effect. Great beer.

Not the way I wanted to try this one. I dropped the bottle and popped the seal on the cap, forcing the issue. Thanks to my dropping, this one pours a huge off white head. Very fluffy head. It clings to the glass very well. The aroma is a bit sweet with citrus, with a bit of spice. The color is a coppery orange. The flavor is different. You can taste the barrel aging coming through, with a hint of orange, a bit of grass, with a tart finish. This gets better with more air allowed to it.

Bottle: Color is amber brown with a light head. Some malt and tart aroma. Flavor is at first malty and then a moderate sourness with pretty strong woody oak spice that gives it a dry finish.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2008 Bottle. Pours amber with orange highlights. Great nose: joebrew’s comment on "starburst like sweetness" is right on. Spicy, rich dry and complex on the palate. Slightly fruity with a wonderful spicy dryness. Finishes quite dry. Enjoyable.

Bottle. Darker than expected. A little watered down. Less flavor than expected, especially given the darker color.

Just a little sour. Very much in the biere de garde style with a yeast common to these beers. Spicy, herbal character. Some fruit and lots of yeast. It doesn’t do anything to blow me away but it very solid.
