Thanks, Jim! Served in a Jolly Pumpkin tulip. Nose has a bit of plum skin; fruit not overpowering. Dry bread. Flavor has some plum tannin. Light-medium body. No real funk.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL Bottle. Thanks so much Sean! Bushy, fervent and wild cherry acid aroma. Some plum juice lingers, but I wouldn’t call the character bold. Palate moves along more mildly. The eccentric strength of the aroma lays down to a more watery, wistful texture and a lack of punch. This might be the first JP beer that I would call thin. Some oaky dust, faded grasses, and some mouth puckering astringency on the sides of the tongue. Sadly, an underwhelming effort. My hopes must have been too high.

transparent red copper, thin fizzy white dissipates quickly to a thin ring. Nose is woody, manure, spiced and light berry acetic. Woody front, berries mid, more spice and soft peach finish with Brett chalkiness. Flavor a bit too full for palate, but well balanced, intriguing. Bit watery.
