Big thanks to yourefragile for opening up this bottle. Long time want. Served in a Jolly Pumpkin tulip. Pours a clear light copper with a huge, rocky white head of foam. Very creamy and extremely long lasting. Cap throughout and really nice lacing on the sides of the glass. The nose has a bit of oxidized malt along with a sizable rye presence. Some light pepper and phenols as well. Flavor begins with rye and a fairly-heavy phenolic presence. A bit of rye in the background, as well as a touch of bread. Body is light, dry, and crisp. A bit bitter. Very mild touch of bubblegum in the nose as it warms. Probably a bit past its prime, and ages different than most Jolly Pumpkin beers. Im not sure what the design was, but this doesnt have any oak, funk, or acidity. As a plain tripel, its not bad, but it isnt anything noteworthy either.

Aroma is fruit, mild spiciness, malts and a hint of hops. The flavor is fruit/raspberries, mild sour notes, malts and a mild spiciness in the finish.

Persistent slow gusher - mmmmm! Cloudy amber beer, big white head (no surprise!). Lightly sour nose! Light palate - dry and crisp. Creamy malt with fruit and spice. Acidic and sour fruits - dry and yeasty. Light and airy but its infected I beleive and there is not enough here to make me think its worth a re-rate. Overdry and bolloxed.

In short: An original rustic big blond Belgian ale, like a cranked up Saison, very good
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed probably fresh, pplit three-way, thanks to the Trois-Rivires comedic duo
The look: Cloudy dark blonde body topped by a medium off-white head
In long: Nose is moderately rye, some dry grass, rustic yeast, musty woody notes (although no wood/barrels here). Taste is crunchy grainy pale malts, very rustic/barnyard, a bit bretty/leathery, rye presence is very discreet, fruity notes of pears. Finishes dry. Drinks more like a big Saison than a Triple per say. I really liked that beer. The Beaudelaire series is far from the usual JP signature funky beers but they are just as good. After that beer we went back to the party, I got drunk again and broke stuff, because when Im drunk I turn perfectly working items into dozens of useless smaller parts. Basically when Im drunk Im like a reverse MacGyver.

(Bottled, 0.75l, rated 2011-07-22) Hazy copper with HUGE amounts of foam (had to pour the beer in three glasses right away). Sour, berry-malty and sweetish nose. Flavor is sweet and berryish, with lots of sourness and some green apple. Some rye maltiness, too, and alcohol not completely hidden despite the sweetness. Medium body, foamy CO2. All the JP beers are from the same mold, but this is not among the best of them.

JulienHuxley (5691) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2011
Bottle. Slight gusher. Amber pour with frothy dirty white head. Aroma is very rye forward, tons of brett, JP funk, some belgian yeast, quite spicey and yeasty. Taste is tart, lots of grain, tripel yeast, bready, a tad of alcohol. Palate is good, full bodied with prickly carbonation, long finish.

(Bottle, 0.75 l - batch 378, at Pikkulintu, 20110708) Gusher. The beer poured amber and a little bit hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sourness, spices, fruitiness and rye bread. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, fruitiness, sourness, sweetness, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was sour, fruity and bitter. Not the best JP brew.

Kens bottle, lovely stuff. Malty aroma. Enormous amount of foam in my pour. Wild wild, love the brett, good malt and yeast, and a little rye edge. A minority in tha it tastes better than it smells.Very smooth, lots of head even 15 minutes in.

[email protected] 2nd ES/CS Beer Tasting. (thanks XA). Deep goldeny orange/amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is spices, some tart wood, mild rye as well as some yeasty notes. Flavour is a bunch of fruits, some tart fruits, wood, mild ryebready and bready notes. Rather sour/tart wooden notes towards the finish.
