4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2006 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Cloudy, amber ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Neverending retention. The incredi-nose is funky, fruity, floral, spicy and nutty. Well-balanced, spicy, nutty, tangy, ginger-laden flavor. Medium-bodied and silky with medium carbonation. Finishes tangy, a bit tart and acetic. Another world class offering from J.P.! Thanks go out to artusory for the bottle!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL. Pours cloudy peach with a thick, thin near yellow beige head. Nose is quite incredible. More funky than other JPs with a lot of Lost Abbey Cable Car character: peach, tangerine, dried pineapple, lemonade, cotton candy. Wow. Just floored by this nose. Hints of acetic sourness and as it warms cinnamon and subtle spice emerge. Taste is very neutral and refreshing. No chestnut and fall spice nonsense. Hints of tea leaves and spices but dominant character is quenching Gatorade with peach and tangerine acid. Super fresh, light bodied, quenching. Fall saison perfection. Only qualm is hints of butterscotch that add fullness and deplete crispness. Slicker than wanted palate. Great stuff regardless. Must have more!
