3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
tart sour nose with hints of brown caramel malts, thin head, deep mirky brown color, palate is quite watery which must be from the excessive dryness of this ale, flavor is acidic and tart but far from overwhelming, significant lingering bitterness, hints at fruit but far from complicated in the ester department, some dark malt flavor sticks around at the finish, very mild brett flavors... Far less complex and bretty than most other JP ales, but more sour than most of the others I’ve had

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours brown-red with half finger of head. Nose is sour apple, earthy, almost mineraly, sour cherry, woody. Taste starts off with sour fruits, very quickly turns woody, dries out a ton, spices, finishes with some plant rind bitterness and spices. Interesting beer, haven't had many Flanders style but I like this beer.

Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Small snifter. Pours a deep reddish brown with a thin eggshell head. Head gone in sixty seconds and very minor lacing. Aroma of sour cherries, funk, wild yeasts, spices, and wine grapes. The taste was quite nice and balanced between the sour cherries, wild yeasts, malts, and cheese. Delicate, but it also seemed to pack a flavor punch. Sour cherry and fruit finish. Light in body, moderate carbonation.

Bottle to chalice. Muddy red with white head and some lacing. Vinegar souring with dirt, wood, red fruit. Very solid representative of the style. Hints of oxidation. Good carbonation soft on the palate. I’ll drink more of this for sure.

Pours a red rubyish color with white head. Sour candy on the aroma, follows through onto the palate. Some wood on the palate as well. Sour, but just a little spice seems to add a little balance to it.

Red pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong cherry notes as well as some brett and a bit of biscuit malt. The flavor is more of the same. I get some tart cherry notes as well as some biscuit malt and a hint of brown sugar. There is also some brett and some light funk notes, as well as some tannic oak character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice sour.
