Thanks to BgBurdman for sharing this at the last Columbus tasting. The aroma is sour and some funky grass smells as well. The pour was a golden brown with a small head. Slightly sour taste with a good bit of yeast and some tangy flavors as well. The mouthfeel was light with ample carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Aroma has notes of yeast, citrus, amber malts, nutty earth. Medium hazy orange amber sparkling hue with a large rocky, foamy, off-white head that mostly lasted and left great lace. Flavor is earthy, nutty, amber malts, and a sour tart finish. Palate is light bodied and lively. Very drinkable with a nice sour finish but could use a little more flavor. Nice though.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very unique beer. Pours a cloudy golden color. Smells of apple and cinnamon. Taste is very different, almost like a sour Flemish ale or a cider. Like green apples. Had in the bottle, batch 902.

light amber appearance with solid white head. flavor is incredibly unique, tasting almost like a gueze with acidic and sharp sourness that finishes very dry with some oak likely from the chestnut. a very enjoyable brew.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice thin head coats this slightly hazy amber colored ale. Aroma is yeast and spice. Taste is strong fruit with a sweet finish. Mild carbonation and a light mouthfeel make the beer smooth. Some tartness distracts but you get kinda used to it.

Opaque hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of apricot and peach, flavor of caramel and bubblegum. Smooth mouthfeel. Pretty good, but not my favorite JP beer...

750mL shared by CanIHave4Beers! Batch 908 bottled on 11/4/11. Oh Ron, you dog you. Chestnuts?! Ok, clear nuts. Hazelnuts, or, probably chestnuts but I don’t really know wtf a chestnut is like. Moderately sour. Earthy, with some cheese funk late in the flavor.
