3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great Taste, 2009. One of the best aromas of the day, with notes of orange, fig, apricot, and bing cherry. On the palate is plenty of funk, and the beer shows its complexity and the craft of the brewer. Notes of dried stone fruit and red wine vinegar, with a finish of vanilla and toasty oak. Not quite as refreshing on a hot day as the other JP beers were, but this was the most complex among them.

An interesting take on the Kriek. Oak is pretty apparent, some lingering vanilla, the cherries offer a tartness more than sweetness. Sweet maltiness. Bought in Indy in 2016.

On tap at Redlight in Orlando, FL. Aroma is extremely unique...fermented cherries, cheese rinds, musty oak. Taste is loads of wood, musty cherries. Taste like it was aged 100 years but still so fresh and lovely.

Medium bodied and quite dry with smooth but somehow lively carbonation. Taste is oak and cherry, moderately tart and slightly sweet. Good.

Hazy pink color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherries, wild yeast, some wood. Taste was sweeter cherries, toast, light tartness. Not nearly as good as Rojzilla.
