Tons of green apple flavor. I don’t know if this is a flaw in the batch or if it’s supposed to taste like this. It’s definitely not unpleasant. Some pear and white grape are certainly there as well. Corriander. Very wet mouthfeel, but a dry finish. Big complexity. A little sour and a little tart. Fresh and crisp. The true strength of a JP beer is the freshness and this delivers. Hard to pinpoint flavors, but very complex. Not quite funky, but just a nice sourness. What a great beer. Really beyond my ability to describe it.

Eructoblaster (3545) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2007
Bottle - 750ml. Light amber body with low carbonation and a lasting off-white foamy head. Sharp hoppy aroma that carries herbal and fruity (mainly grapefruit) notes. Very well balanced hoppy taste that ends with a long bitter/sour finish. Very nice!

Clear orange/amber with a huge head. Lots of lacing as the head turns rocky. Aroma of Belgian yeast, peppery spices, coriander, sweet fruit and oak. Tang of fruit in the taste. Moderately sweet, moderately sour and lightly bitter. Light to medium body. Complex, and very good.

Ibrew2or3 (7777) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Sampled at the O-Town throwdown. Pours hazy orange to copper with nice off white head. The aroma is mostly tart. The flavor attacks my taste buds with tart sourness that tails into some tart citrus notes.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Nearly clear dull orange with a firm white head. Clear enough to see the other side of the glass, Has a gem like quality to the look of it. Tart and spicy with noticable citrus. Smells like a Saison. Sour, slightly astringent, puckering and dry. Finishes bitter. Quite bold in flavor but still balaced nicely.

MaxxDaddy (415) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Poured a light, cloudy orange with ample head. The aroma was full of citrus, coriander, and some yeast funkiness. The taste was pretty interesting, in that it was dominated by citrus and pepper; quite the combination. It finished pretty dry and citrusy. I shared this with some friends and we weren’t really sure what to think. It’s certainly quite different than any beer I had previously tasted and I enjoyed it for what it was.

Pours a hazy golden orange with a very thin light white head. Some acidic tannins mixed with light citrus show up in the nose in true JP form. Taste is somewhat spicy and sour mixed together. I get some sweet malts, lemons, and yeast blended together to form the main character of this brew. Ive been wanting to try this one for a long time and it didnt disappoint. i liked it.
