Ungstrup (30685) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 30, 2007
Bottled. A hazy dark amber beer with a thin orange head. The aroma is very sweet with strong notes of caramel and alcohol, as well as light spicy notes. The flavor is sweet with hints of acidity from brettanomyces and with notes of fruits - I pick up passion fruit and pineapples, leading to a dry bitter end that also hides notes of wood.

Grovlam (4167) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 30, 2007
Bottle. [Many thanks to Sk8viking for sharing this one] Average creamy beige head that mostly diminished. Hazy mahogany color. Spar lacing. Nice raisins, sweet grapefruit, caramel, hops. Medium to full bodied with a light dry and alcoholic texture. The Brett is present. Flavor was light bitter notes with some sweet malt base and even some vinegar sour notes as well. Light dry and bitter finish.

madsberg (10801) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 29, 2007
Bottled. Amber coloured. Unclear. Dense off white head. Sweetness, light vinegar and some fruits in the nose. The characteristic brett is there. Flavour as well has brett-notes. Light sour vinegar, fruits and spice comes to mind. Quite complex. Is medium to full bodied. Qutie dry. Is grapish and light bitter in the end. Very refreshing. One of my favourites from JP, which IMO keeps a pretty high standard.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - APR 21, 2007
Bottle. Pours with a dirty brown and reddish color and a medium head. Very fruity aroma of apples and citrus. Flavor is slightly tart at the beginning, that tunrs into bitterness. Medium bodied beer that is quite nice.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2007
Bottle shared by nolankowal: Pours a hazy deep amber color with a big off white head. Aroma, classic Jolly Pumpkin funk to it, some dried fruits, yeasty. Flavor, some roasted notes, fruity, some nice funky musty notes. I’m pretty sure they can do no wrong by me at this point.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2007
this was a lot like one of the fantome’s i’ve had (the dark summer i think?) lots of fruit, plum, pear, apricot, green apple, and lemon with strawberries. some candi sugar, hints of malt, and floral/perfumey flavors. some very nice funky cheese flavor as well. i like my beers sour and fruity. very good.

Ibrew2or3 (7511) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2007 Re-rate 11/17/07 courtesy of Quake1028. Pours clear orange copper with explosive rocky tan head and sheet lacing. The aroma is as explosive as the head with tartness on the front followed by some sweet fruitiness mixed with flower pedals, mild spice and wood. The taste actually starts neutral and almost watery. It then becomes tart with apple fruitiness, some floral senses and funk. The oak woodiness is there and rides the flavor from beginning to end.

03/03/07 Sampled at the O-Town throwdown. Pours straw with lasting off white head. The aroma is sourness, dirt and wet burlap. The flavor is tough to pin down. I get some light sourness without really a tartness along with mustiness and dirt. Thin body and pretty drinkable.
