3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Batch #336. Love or hate JP beers.
I was intrigued by the chestnut description, thinking this would be a bombastic style so often found in the Italian beers. No! Once again JP floods the aroma with the sour brett aroma, leaving almost no nose to be enjoyed. You take load of brett + slight chestnut and that sums up the aroma. Itís rather disappointing that JP keep doing this to all of their beers.
Pours hazy golden with white head.
Aroma as mentioned earlier is just filed with brett, and has very faint notes of the chestnut and spices.
Taste was rather fruity, with lingering notes of cherry, light tartness with very light chestnut.
Just too much of brett, way too much of it, please let me enjoy the beer!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the A2 location. Pours a hazy earthy orange with a creamy light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has traditional JP funk with chestnut and a hint of sweet grains and sourness. Flavor begins with sour fruits that combine surprisingly nicely with the chesnut and sweet grains. Real nice.

This copper ale poured with a decent off-white head and a sour aroma. The flavor, too, is mildly sour over an interesting malt base. There are some nice spices to enhance the recipe.
