UPDATED: AUG 22, 2010 12 oz bottle from WTF OMG! tasting. Pours a dark brown almost black color with hints of mahogany at the edges. The small kahki colored head dissipates quickly leaving some small dots of lacing in the glass. The aroma is quite roasty and sour at the same time with dark cocoa coming through with the oak, tart cherries, acetic notes, and a touch of sour mash. The flavor follows and is definitely sour with the tart cherries and apples from the La Roja coming through along with some roasty chocolate, acetic vinegar and bretty oak. Some vanilla seaps through the oak and smooths out all the sour and funk just a touch. The flavors are all over the place with roasty chocolate, soured fruits, and funky oak. Medium bodied with soft carbonation with a lingering dry finish. A really nice brew from JP and a pleasure to try.

On cask @ special sour beer tasting via Buckeye Beer Engine in Lakewood, Ohio. For a lover of all things Jolly, this is magic in a glass. It has all the roasty notes of the Noel and all the amazing zing of the Roja. The Madrugada seems to make up the body of the beer. On cask the natural fermentation adds wonderfully to the experience. The best part is tasting it bit by bit as it warms and newer, bolder flavors emerge. Pure heaven! Thanks JP

25 oz bottle. Pours a clear very dark mahogany brown body with just a small wispy beige head. Probably the smallest head Iíve seen on a JP beer yet. The nose is quite sour and tart with lots of cherry skins, heavy oak, some bourbon, chocolate, and roast. The aroma on this thing is all over the place, almost like a sour Porter, reminds me of the Jackie-Oís Grand Wazoo. Some noticeable alcohol. Quite a bit more funky than it is sour really, lots of brett influence. Tart cherry skins, roasty malt, and a good bit of bourbon but itís not overly boozy. The blend seems to be a little heavier on the Roja to me and I donít really get much of the Noel at all. Finishes with a great dry lingering brett flavor and heavy oak tannins. Mouthfeel is fairly thick but the spritzy carbonation keeps it from being overly heavy or cloying. Lingering bourbon and vanilla notes. This was a really neat beer, I keep getting new bursts of flavors as I drink it. Sometimes it seems chocolaty, sometimes coffee, some dark fruits, hints of vanilla, all kinds of stuff. A real treat to sit down with a whole 750 and drink it over two hours or so.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Bottle (dregs)Ö WTF OMG!Ö Murky, dark brown blend with a small, white head. The aroma is malty, acidic and earthy Ė chocolate, lactic acid, wood and a whisper of bourbon. Full-bodied with a whole-milk mouthfeel and zippy carbonation. Mainly sour, but also lots of roastiness and some cocoa and caramel sweetness. Tart, dry finish.

On tap at the stone 13th fest. Pours a dark brown (slightly red), tan head. Cherries, caramel, sweet malt, lemon, a bit of funk and dark malts, and some sourness. Not an extreme sour, but still very tasty.

12 oz bottle. Dark brown with tannish froth. Nose is sour lemon candy, leather, cinnamon and faint chocolate cherry. Juicy and vinous with a slight tingle. Taste is Concord grape, vanilla, caramel, sour peach and dried apricot. Crazy stuff.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2012 Bottle thanks to kryptic!
Plum-sepia colored, no head but a few legs. Nose reminds of Earthmonk, heavy berry fruit, brown coco, some alcohol. Definitely flemish, but not quite as sour as Earthmonk. Incredibly fruity flavor, as fruity as Iíve tasted. Loads of sweet pineapple, orange, strawberry, and kiwi, also some coco, brett hints, even some scotch. Incredible blend. Finishes with dry fruit, light-moderate body, better carbonation than most flemish sours. Incredibly enjoyable stuff, satisfyingly complex though not very sour. Not mind-blowing complexity, but great stuff anyway, and I love the flavor here, the BdM fruit topped with the quality wild yeast control evident in the GR BdM. Oddly enough, itís the least JP-like beer that Iíve had, but itís still fantastic.
