4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL Bottle, graciously provided by Sean! Intoxicating tropical aroma that hints at hibiscus, dragonfruit, and rainier cherries. The body is less fluent in fruit than the aroma. The old stalwart JP characters come through, with soft acidity, drying oak, and a gentle malt base. I really can’t pick up on a ton of fruit here, maybe just a prickle of cherry and a kiss of citrus. But it adds up to a nice dry, lightly tart, and balanced sour with a modicum of fruit extras. This reminds me of the JP classics like La Roja and Biere de Mars. Fun stuff.
