The Firefly, an artisan pale ale brewed in the Grand Cru tradition. Enjoy its golden effervescence and gentle hop aroma. Coriander and Grains of Paradise round out the spicy palate, melting o so softly into a silken finish of hoppiness and bliss! Make any season a celebration!

Orange colored with white head. Citrus, barnyard, lemon in aroma. Very dry taste, some Brett funk and orange peel. Drinkable and light. Good stuff.

neongolden (728) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
(Bottle sample @ Mikkeller Bar Stockholm, Nov 16 2014) Pours a clear medium orange with a big pillowy white head and lace. Aroma has citrus zest, floral, coriander, light wood, a bit of barnyard Bretty funk, tart or lightly sour. On the palate, bright, sour/tart citrus, touch of sweet fruit too, grassy/floral hops, a little oak and coriander, a bit funky on the finish, which is tart and dry and kind of mineral, herbal notes linger as well. Really clean sort of beer. The body is quite light, and the carb moderate and sharply effervescent. A twist on a Belgian pale or saison style, a bit sour/tart and a little bit barrel kissed. A bit quenching, interesting but subtle in its character, a good table farmhouse for when you want a beer that’s not exactly straight-forward.

From notes. Finally getting around to adding beers from the Detroit Zoo Brew! Enjoyed on September 26. The pour is really orange, with spots of lighter gold or what not passing through. There is a large white head that falls down slowly, leaving a great lace behind. The aroma is pretty sour, but carries a lovely fruitiness with it. There is a little bit of a funk, as I’ve come to just call a JP funk. The flavor is much of the same. Light, fruity, lightly sour, and just a touch of funk on the back end. The mouth feel is well done, light, but carbonated and coating. The aftertaste is dry. a citrusy, fruity sourness. Pretty good

750ml bottle 11/7/14 (Payless Liquors #9-Indy)-Pours orange with a big white head. Aroma of spices, oak, coriander, and a little funk. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is well balanced and goes down easy.

Nice sour. Smooth finish but not a lot of noticeable flavors. Less expensive than other high rated sours.

jhamp9 (1256) - Corinth, Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Hazy orange pour with a massive white head that lasts. A lot of fine carbonation is visible as well. Aroma musty barnyard funk, spice, and light tropical fruit. Taste follows the nose with a nice lactic tartness also. Very dry finish. Really nice beer.

hirigalzkar (2481) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2014
Sample @ SBWF. Is this a post modern ale or what? It’s sweet, pretty sour and at the same time quite hoppy. Nicely balanced. Notes of cookies, citrus, wheat, pepper. Small bitterness in the aftertaste.

"a nice blend of hops and funk, with a slight coriander spiciness in the nose and the back end of the flavor. prickly on the palate. still has the house JP character, but it works well here."
