4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Blend 2 Bottled 2/24/10
Tasted on 9/17/13 from a capped 750mL bottle that has been in the cellar for quite some time. Pours dark, opaque, mahogany with an average white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is very tart with tons of lemon acidity, white wine vinegar, a touch of burnt rubber funk, and just a light hint of the caramel malt that is obviously providing the darkness of this beer. The flavor is extremely sour and tart with tons of lemon, wine vinegar (very vinous), a nice touch of vanilla oak, and a very nice caramel malt underlying. The body is medium with a woody, tannic texture, lively carbonation, and a long, super sour and vinous finish. This beer with age is otherworldly.

Appearance: Brown orange color with thin white head
Aroma: Musty malty and cinnamon
Taste: Toasted caramel malt. Slightly tart with notes of orange, ginger and nutmeg. A bit reminiscent of a hefeweizen
Overview: A good introduction to the sour genre as its seems to be a cross between a kolsch and a oud bruin

Amazing tart fruit nose with the perfect amount of horse blanket. Light and refreshing with a gentle sour finish. Barrel notes, flavors abound. Perfect beer for sushi or even jambalaya. World class, thank u Ron.

Blend 1, bottled 2/2013. Complex and hard to define.. though a very enjoyable sour. Subtle vinous aromas and flavors consisting of subtle dark cherries and damp wood, though unlike a Flanders sour. More subtle, undefinable nuances.. Maybe some cranberry, strawberry and other berry flavors.. A deep earthy, yeast component is also present, though very much in check and balanced with other layers. A very enjoyable sour, that I think may be under-appreciated in my neck of the woods, as it sells slowly. Definitely now one of my favorite JP's.

Bottle from AJs. Pours a reddish brown with a small light tan head. Nose is apple, pear, lightly acetic with wood and a bit of funk. Sweet and sour with more apple, cherry, barnyard, oak, earth, soft maltiness underneath and some bitterness. Definitely has the JP flavor profile. Finishes clean and fairly crisp and dry. Nice.
