Blend 2, bottled 10-04-2012. Bottle from Tipples. Pours a clear orange bronze color with fluffy white head and lots of effervescent bubbles coming up from the bottom. Aroma of pleasant spice, apples, pears, oak, brett. Gentle sour funk with light but not intruding background spice, apples, dry sharp oak finish. Light and easy drinking with lots of soft carbonation. Classic JP brew here.

750 bottle. Pours a dark amber with full head. Aromas of wet wood, caramel and toasted malts. Flavours of green wood, light spice, oranges, and malts. Maybe some nutty flavour, but I read the label first. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sour aroma dominates, somewhat grassy underneath the sourness. Malts pretty subdued. Some spice, particularly mild clove.
Cloudy amber color; moderate to heavy white head.
Taste dominated by the sour flavor. Pretty dry. Moderate bitterness.
Medium body; fairly thin texture; lively carbonation; finish is sour.
Overall a decent beer, but the sourness dominates too much for my taste. I like the subtle spice, but overall the complexity is moderate at best.

Pours apple juice, Brownish orange, bit of white foam, not much foam. Aroma is sour but not much, at the same time not really getting much chestnut and nit that spicy. Brett funk and horse-blankety. Taste is also slight sour, more old apple bitterness, some funk and horseblanket. spices coming out at the end, bit of nuttiness also, maybe because I am really looking for it. Nice and enjoyable, not mind-blowing.

Pours a light brown with a foamy white head. Aroma is a spice that stands out with a sharp bite and lactic acid. Flavor is tart lactic acid and that same spice. The tartness has a bit of a bite to it, or maybe that’s the spices used. Pretty good.

2014 Vintage 75cl kindly shared by impuritylaw, merci! - Bref: wisely dosed spices join a host of gently stone fruit sours to make a gentle US crossover Belgian "sour" ale of convincing seasonal charm. - Cinnamon, oak and vanilla well dosed and balanced against apricot and lemon tartness in aroma. Aromas withdraw in flavour to make way for thinned out fruit caramels and a slight vinegar prickle (cf. De Leite’s instant sour Belgian ales). - A few notches behind Bam Noire due to overload, but still an original watercolour blending Belgian ale, US saison and US wild/sour.
