A great lemony flavor with just a little tartness and oak that doesnt overpower in any area. A great summer beer. It is very much like a dry white wine; I would recommend it to wine drinkers.

Bottle. Yellow to gold appearance with an airy head. Buttery, with notes of apple, guava, and papaya. Finishes with lemon, pepper, and a distinct tartness.

haukur (1259) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 26, 2014
Golden with a firm head. Huge bouquet of spices, lemons, hops, grass and orange peel grate you in your nose. Just enough acidity, beautifully balanced. Finish is funk, slight hops, peppers. Wow

This is a wonderful, mild belgian ale. Lovely aroma, not too sweet, nice and mild, as I said. pours frothy, with a bright wide head and cloudy orange body. Taste is a little weak, likely on the aforementioned mild side. Nice beer.

Awesome funky dry crisp and chewy beverage. Hazy straw color and slick mouthfeel. Nice.

Zymurgeist2 (934) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 9, 2014
From bottle to tulip. Spice. lemon, and sweet grain bread. Slight tart funk is very nice. Hazy dusted gold with a full white head that leaves moderate lacing down the side. Flavor is moderate low spice with candi sugar and cracker malt. Slightly bacterial with solid yeast accents. All-around goodness.

TXBadger (1217) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with fizzy white head. Oak, cereal grain, and spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes dry, tart and some pepper which is weird. Not my favorite offering from JP.

bytemesis (2927) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 1, 2014
One of the new 375 bottles. Pours quite hazy golden yellow, medium white head, creamy dissipating slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is extremely light, nearly undetectable. A bit of oak, funk and pepper if you work really hard at it. Flavor, on the other hand, is light sweet, lightly funky, a bit of bitterness, some oak, a bit of herbs and pepper, fruity yeast esters. Smooth, clean and refreshing. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. No sign of the 8% in here until later. I really like this beer, would score higher if it had a smell :P, and I would like it even more if the ABV were lower.

Bottle: Clear gold with a small, thick, white head. Pear, yeast, apple aroma.....barnyard. Tart, biting lemon...pear taste. Excellent sharpness and souring. Acidic citrus, funky brightness. Very good.

Bottle pour. Sunlight color. Sour nose. Apricots. Flavor is tart. Some lactic notes. Pineapple and faint woodiness. Finish has a medicinal quality.
