Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a medium sized foamy beige-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tart, sour, yogurt and hard candies. The flavor was very tart yet sweet with notes of sugar, hard candy, citrus, almost yogurt and rose water. Long tart and sweet citrus and rose water finish. Moderately full bodied. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: amber/orange/yellow, short beige head, average lacing. Aroma: slightly nutty, with good funk, some sourness, a bit of chocolate and pepper, with stone fruits. Taste: earthy, sour chocolate, light spice and smoke, slightly tart fruit. Finish: lingering slightly tart yeast (brett?), with a bit of chocolate and nuts. Notes: As I’ve come to expect from JP beers, this was funky, weird, and interesting. As usual, I didn’t LOVE it, but I certainly enjoyed the oddity of it.
