UPDATED: JAN 2, 2008 Sample at Barley Island tasting Jan 20, 2007 - Bought at brewery Dec 2006 - Aroma is sour, nuts and berries with a caramel yeasty finish. Pours clear brown with a small head and no lacing. Flavor matches aroma. Palate is thin and tart. Different and tasty, but not as good as I was expecting.zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Added one to flavor and one to overall. Upon a revisit it has a nice gentle spice and good yeasty back that makes all JP brews so tasty.
Bottle. Pours hazy orange/amber. Ample off white head. Aroma is funky, musty, tangy, citrus, & spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, coriander, allspice). Smells very autumnal. Flavor is funky (slight tangy bleu cheese), spicy, sour, wheat, a little bit of crispy bacon. Excellent. apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2006
I really like this beer from JP. Dark orange body, thin white head. Slightly musty, and earthy, yet it retains a bit of fruitiness in the flavor as well. Some caramel malt, but its quite sour. Interesting and complex.

Denmark, Ulfborg tasting with J&C. hazy amber/orange color with small head. Sweet malty with lots of fruit notes ad a sour touch. Taste is sweet malty, sour, spicy, some yeast, didn’t get any chestnuts. xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Gift from my GF. 750 bottle. Bottle bomb, did not flow over but had to sit and wait for head to settle for quite a long time. (needless to say) huge white head on dark brown/red body, almost opaque. Aroma has nice funk with cherries, spices, cloves. Flavor is sour, woody, warrming, sherry, sweet and green apple. Body is med and creamy. Very delicious, unfortunate about the crazy carb though. awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2006
From 750mL Bottle. Pours a rich, orange hued, ruddy amber sunset topped with a luscious layer of sustaining ivory head. Intriguing, musty aroma of applewood dusted with a coating of Estevant pine bark sawdust. Plenty of green fruits to freshen up the old woods aroma, including some green pears and white grapes. A subtle underlayer of allspice seasoned honey adds another sweeter dimension for my olfactory enjoyment. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel with a soft pinch of dry vermouth tartness. Very musty and only a touch sour, but plenty of flavor. Leather baseball glove stitching, tart ripe apples, a sprinkle of cinnimon, and a squeeze of fresh lemon to start off. Freshly baked whole wheat bread and a bit of grated ginger root follow soon thereafter. Quite nice, overall. Thanks, Tom! thome50 (1295) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Bottle via wavvers, thanks Baker. Pours a light golden color with a frothy white head for a sour. Lots of carbonation in this one. Sour funk aroma comes through very early and only grows. A little bit of nuttiness in the aroma but not overpowering. The taste is more sour but very well balanced, lactic, and then some malt characters but not a lot of other spices seem to come through. A very good beer but not necessarily screaming "FALL!!" like I was expecting. wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Pours hazy amber. Nose lactic tartness, berries, spices, mild caramels, and a touch of waxy honey. Flavor is tart lemons, cranberries, cherries, all spice, caramels. Tart and day but the supporting malt character doesn’t leave you puckering in te finish and isn’t too thin. Pretty nice beer.
