COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An artisan white ale brewed in the classic biere blanche tradition. Spiced with orange peel and coriander, you'll find it refreshingly tart, with a wonderful dry finish.

The weakest of the JP beers. I think I need to try it again though. Props for not being an over the top wit like Leinie wheat that my girlfriend just bought.

750 ml bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with large, soapy white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of lemon and apple, some funkiness and gentle spice. Flavour is lemon zest, orange, apple, brett and light coriander. Drying finish. Very lively carbonation. Quite enjoyable.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a huge white fluffy head. Lots of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is of lemon citrus zest, yeast and belgian spice. Taste is lemon, orange, slightly tart, dry, with a medium light mouthful. Overall an enjoyable beer. 1st beer I have had from the brewery and I am impressed. Look forward to more.

Douberd (1719) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle 750 ml at home, into a tumbler. Batch 867, Bottled 11/2011 Clear golden colour on the body with one finger of froathy head, low retention. Light lacing and the thinnest film of foam left on the surface. Aroma has brett, citrus, apples. Taste is refreshingly sour, lemony citrus flavour, apples. Not much of the coriander or the orange peel left in here, but the result is quite good. Thin body, average carbonation. Very tart on the palate. Overall nice, not your usual witbier.

dansac (70) - Loa Angeles, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Very nice beer by JP: basically a brettened up white beer. Pours gorgeous clear hazy yellow with a nice white head. Mouthfeel is big carbonation, medium bodied; very dry. Taste is wheat, banana, lemon cest, a bit of barnyard funk, It’s a really nice, easy to drink beer.

On tap at Bigalora in Ann Arbor. Very smooth, but wish there was more of a bite. Not much on the nose. Pours a very light and clear orange. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Blonde trouble ayant une mousse sans grandes ambitions. Un nez propre au style, mais de façon plutôt faible. Des effluves d’agrumes et des épices quelconques semblent être tout ce qui en émanent. Un goût qui se construit autour du zeste de citron avec de la coriandre et des pointes poivrées qui nous saisit un peu en bouche. Un côté suret sur les bords et aussi minéral. Plutôt aqueuse. Rafraîchissante, comme un Perrier au citron. Je reste sur ma faim. Est-elle trop vieille? (926-171213)

beerbaaron (936) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Batch 913. Bottled 10-10-2011. Rated 12-21-13. Aged 2+ years. Nice artwork. Pours an effervescent golden. Large fluffy, frothy white head, lasting. Big beautiful aroma. Yeasty, bretty, orange, citrus, coriander, some basement and old damp wood/light barnyard. Comfortable sourness, some citrus fruitiness, pleasant dryness. Soft, lighter medium body. The aged took most of the edge off the spices but are still present. Lots of yeast character and plenty of lemony like citrus. I liked this better than most of the other JP beers, although they all seem very similar, this one stands out a little more.
