Bottle. Iím so glad my local store has JP stuff now. Looks beautiful, golden orange color with a big, white head that gets all lumpy as it dies down. Classic spice and fruit aromas. Oakey, yeasty, citrus taste sweet with a dry, hot finish. Good stuff!

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Sampled from a 750 mL bottle at the Brewers Supply Group GABF Kickoff Party in Denver. Lightly hazy, lemon-colored body with dark, fine yeasty particulates and a pure white, persistent foamy head. Aroma has fresh light malt notes with nice orange esters, floral notes, and impressions of lime, coriander, and white pepper. Pleasing balance of rosy esters, medium phenols, honey-like malt, and some oaky dryness. Nice hop presence. Great farmhouse character with an interesting American signature.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Hazy cloudy yellow with lots of carbonation and a pollowy snow white head. Aroma is yeast and spice. Peppery and dry and quite familiar for this style. Fruityness comes up after a bit. Very active on the palate. Very dry finish. Spicy flavors on the tongue. Yeast character and a peppery presence that makes way for a little bit of a spicy hop presence. The overwealming character is the dryness. Itís real great comming after the very active taste. As it warms a bit of a sourness emerges and coats the tongue. It is sweet at the front and sour along the way to a balanced bitter finish.

Nose full of apricots and spice. Dense tightly packes head sitting atop a murky golden brew. Light/medium body, creamy. Underlying alcohol bite that is noticeable in the fiinish. Enjoyable brew.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2005
Faint aroma of light fruits and hay. Hazy golden color with a dense white head. Nice flavor, pale malt, light fruiitiness, a little clove and pepper, and just a bit of hops. All of these flavors are nicely balanced. Medium body with moderate carbonation. One of the better beers Iíve tried from JP. As usual, Iíd like a little more malt sweetness and body, but with this style high degree of attenuation works well.

MrRomero (1975) - Nolanville, USA - SEP 22, 2005
750ml bottle: poured orange with a thick off white head. Light hairspray in the aroma with fruits and light hops. Flavor is lightly sweet with fruit: mild banana and citrus. Semi-full body, nice finish. Good beer.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - SEP 12, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2007 Golden with a small head. Very smooth. Some hints of fruit give it almost a wine feel. The alchol is hidden well.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - SEP 7, 2005
The aroma is spicey and fruity. The color is a cloudy golden and the head is white and very short lasting. There is a fruitiness to the flavor and the finish is astringent.

Aggie80 (785) - Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Smells like a Belgian, spicy and some citrus notes. Big bubbles in a white head that fades away with a touch of lacing. Citrus notes in the flavor with a acidic aftertaste. Astringent quality that is not unpleasant. Gotta love the huge bottle, though!
