Thanks to RagallachMC for the bottle (750ml). Batch (blend) 3. Hazy burnt orange color with a large head. Aroma of brett and malt with a lot of fruitiness (apricot, pear and cherry). Some spiciness in the taste, as well as a little oak. Tangy texture, dry with a lot of fruit/ funk.

750 ml. YUM! Big malty beer with lots and lots of spice notes that tingle the palate while getting hit simultaneously with a blast of oaky goodness! Small hints of possible cherry notes, and overall, a nice big tartly sour finish. One of my favorite from JP!

DuffMan (9593) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 22, 2008
Deep copper brown, brief scanty head. Very skunky sour aroma. Sour cherry, funky earthy hops, spicey, very woody, puckeringly tart finish. Iíve had a few sour ales recently, and they can be hard to sort out on the palate, but this came across as having a bit more spicey and woody character rounding out the sour tartness. Interesting and delicious, but not for everyone (half the table turned away from this one!).

Bottle. Pours murky amber Brown. Traditional JP funk and citris. Some oak in the flavor and some light pigmented fruit. A nice dry finish to end glass.

Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2009 Bottle from Pailhead. Thanks! Poured muddy brown (though I got the end of the bottle) with a big head. Light retention and excellent lacing. Funky, citrus aroma with notes of horse blanket, lemon, grapefruit and caramel. Very smooth. 7/4/8/4/16

750 mL bottle courtesy of a friend. Pours a clear vibrant red color with a large head. Good head retention and lacing. Fairly funky aroma with a cherry and berry notes, almost like mixed berry lifesavers. Taste is also funky with the same berry lifesavers, citrus, cheese. Slightly vegetal. Soft, lively carbonation. Full bodied. This really hit the spot. 9/4/8/4/17

big bottle, Blend 2 2007, pours a dark brown with HUGE fluffy off white head, taste is super awesome and what makes this a winner for me, 3 sips yielded 3 different tastes, first was that immediate sour funk next came the fruits and yeast then following sip hit with the oak and vanilla faint in the end.. this was a nice brew little too bubbly to break into the 4ís for me though.

bottle 2007 blend 2 - Pours murky brown with a big, foamy head. The aroma is of yeast, some light fruitiness, and sour funk. The flavor is tart and malty with some spices apparent. The oak is very mild. The palate is lively and the finish somewhat dry. Itís different, quite drinkable, but not my favorite.

RSRIZZO (1960) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2008
2007 Vintage Blend 1. Aroma has a strong skunk scent to with some fruit in the back. Why the hell did they put this in a green bottle. Color is a solid orange brown with good carbonation and a thick head. Taste is tart and tangy. Starting with a medium body it goes down fizzy. Finish comes in with a fruit cider tartness with a faint oak flavor. After taste is a sour twang. Its a bit funky but at least thereís no skunk in the taste.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 24, 2008
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil: Nice looking pour of muddy burgundy topped by a light tan ring. Canít see through it at all. Light brett notes in the nose. Some cherry pit, tart raspberry and lemon-rind. Mouthfeel is lacking; has a dull texture. Flavor has a refreshing tartness, some acidic raspberry hints and funky cork notes. The brett is evident, but itís lacking something to complete the flavor scale. Maybe it needs time to get more funky/complex? Not bad though.
