madsberg (11360) - 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.

Bottle. Crimson-orange pour with a offwhite/tan head. Aroma of brett, vinous notes, light sourness and a bit of funk and oak. Light flavors of yeast, sour, barnyard elements, light fruits and oak. Smooth mouthfeel with a sour/bitter dry finish.

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.

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.

Mild hazed amber looking ale. Laced fine creamy head.3+
Sweet mild flower-fruity aromas.
Milder ale, sweet and sour in character. Soft fruity touches. Pleasing beer. Spring is coming!

Ibrew2or3 (8082) - 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.

From a 750mL Bottle. Fairly transparent, honey-copper colored pour with a small layer of white head. Definitely not the carbonated monster that so many other JP beers are. A pleasant, lightly caramelized malt background supplements a fresh sweet pear and apple fruitiness. Some musky canteloupe rinds and ripening strawberries add further delights to the tart, lightly fruity bouquet. Light to medium bodied mouthfeel with a creamy carbonation. A little on the sweet side for a JP brew, but not cloying, either. Some gently sour, earthy white grape skins start out the flavors, and then morphs in to a delightfully ashy, musky cheese rind character. Some sweaty leather and zest from an aged lemon round out the finish to the palate. Quite enjoyable overall, but a crisper carbonation, fuller head, and drier palate would make it even more so. Thanks, Tom!

Difficult to get a head on this one. Thin and soapy. Decent carbonation. Nice oaky and fruity aroma with some tart apples, musk and some sugary malts. Color is a dark amber. Somewhat thin and tart flavor. Slick and oily with lots of oak, some more tart apples, spices, citrus and some light sweet malts. Little flat in the mouth which is very unlike JP brews. Usually lots of fizzy carbonation in the mouth. Finish is tart, citrusy and pretty dry. Light fruit and spice lingering aftertaste. A decent JP brew but I think that Ilike their other offerings better.
