Blend 3, bottled December 30, 2010. Funky, delicious. The aroma gives off an immediate sour. Once tasted, I find it is not as sour as the aroma leads to me to believe. The caraway makes its presence with a little bite. I think it is a great balance. Pours a red-brown. Sediments present. Very small head, minimal lacing, but is spotty. There is a bit that even goes to the nose. I really enjoyed this beer.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique June 2013. Mixture of spice and oak in the aroma. Good beer that is really enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lukaduke (2185) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle thanks to NielsenRatings ! Pours a deep mahogany umber color with a finger or so of khaki foam. The nose is tart plum and cherry with rustic woodsy herbalness, touches of licorice, rye, mint... wow. This beer is complex ! The palate follows the nose with great contrast in flavors from the deep earthy spiced notes of caraway, rye, juniper, autumn leaves, wet oak, tart cherry, rotten plums... nice background acidity ! Very interesting and complex yet still highly chuggable !

Blend 4 Bottled 12/31/2010
Tasted on 12/28/13 from a capped 750mL bottle obtained in a trade quite a while ago, I am very excited to finally try the last of this series. Pours opaque dark brown with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to thick, sticky lace. The nose is sour and funky with the sage coming through as a bit savory, sweet/spicy caraway, and herbal juniper with a touch of caramel malt. The flavor is the same sour and funk from the nose (a bit different than I usually expect from JP), with red wine vinegar, herbal and nicely bitter juniper, sweet and peppery caraway, and savory sage and chestnut, this beer is super complex, and very nicely balanced. The body is medium with just under average carbonation and a long, complex finish that encompasses all flavors and aromas mentioned above.

Sweet cinnimon pumpkin with dark malt aroma. Dark dark brown in color with off cream colored head. Sweet cardimon in start then a very smooth creamy finish. Damn balanced.

Bottle. Brown pour with a slick of tan foam. Aroma is spices, brett, light funk, and lemon. Taste is light tart with brett and spice, lemon, and light bitterness. Clean mouthfeel. Good.

This is absolutely superb. Sort of a beautiful holiday ale, with just the right amount of funk to add intrigue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours a very nice dark amber with unfiltered characteristics. Aromas are spice and funk with even bready malts. Taste is nicely funky with mild spice and quite a nice line of burnt caramel. Palate is even and effervescent. Overall a solid beer that breaks the mold on holiday ales.

Lukter kirsebær. Mørk farve og godt med skum. Smaker som fruktvin med tydelig eikepreg. Melkebaren.

God frisk fruklukt kissebær? En god frisk smaksoplevelse med god ettersmak. Leskende og godt i sommervarmen.
