Bottle: Poured a dark orange with a tan head. The aroma was fruity (apples), oak, and spices. The flavor was somewhat tart, dry oak with a hint of apple spice, nuts and cinnamon. Overall, a really tasty brew, high quality and sophisticated. DoublEE (781) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2012
So well integrated, and so well balanced. The wood character, the tartness, the funky notes, the fruit character and everything else just combines to form a really nice drinking, complex brew. Once again JP has created a masterful brew!

Bottle. Pours golden with white 1 finger head. Aroma has light Duchesse notes. Vinegar, fruity, grapes, cherry, malts, some peach and light nutty. Taste is light and delicate. Spices are there. Lige a krydderkage. Some yam. Prickling carbonation and light peppery dry finish. JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUN 2, 2006
Medium copper color with big foamy off white head. Aroma is fairly bretty, tart, with fair amount of caramel, hint of cherries. Flavor is slightly tart, sour, touch of caramel and vanilla. thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Tap @ Spuyten Duyvil. Pours a deep orange with a wispy and quickly-dissipating head. Aroma is spice (cinnamon and coriander), nut, malt, and yeast. Taste is roughly the same, with a character that effortlessly evokes the autumn season. Quite a nice beer.

750ml bottle. The bottle is now green, unfortunately, unlike the old brown ones. Batch 244,245. Wonderful appearance on this one, just like I’ve come to expect with this company. A clear golden honey color with a huge rocky white head with great retention and great lacing. Amazingly complex aroma on this baby. Freshly roasted honey nuts, slight chocolate, brown sugar, christmas, normal JP funk, all integrated together and blended beautifully. Chestnuts roasting over an open fire. The nuttiness here is more appetizing than any other beer (mostly brown ales) where I have noticed a nutty character, it must be the chestnuts. Taste is subdued in its funky and tart flavors with some of the nuttiness and chocolate of the aroma coming through but much, much more subtle. This beer smells better than it tastes, unfortunately. Probably the least sour and funky tasting JP I’ve had to date, probably because it’s new. Drinkability is very high. Nice soft mouthfeel with a slight dryness. I’d be interested to see how this ages, though it is certainly nice right now. mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2009

Hazy deep orange-amberish beer with a nice creamy slight yellowish-off white head. Aroma is mild and soft malty, it has touches of nuts and almond liquor. Also touches of chesnut skin that gives a untherbuild tart sharpness in this brew. Aroma is sweeter than the taste. The mouthfeel is quit dry, it has a soft malty carracter with a slight spicy touch and sharp accents of sour apple skins (renette apples) and orange zest. In the afthertaste there is a nice earthy touch with hints of humide forrest soil, wild berries and wet wood The more this beer gets warmer, the more wine like the beer gets.

Brewed in th USA !!!! Courtesy of AFI96... Thanks Waylo. Pours a orange/amber color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of barn yard funk and apples. Taste has a spritzy sourness followed by some lemon zing, spices and toasty notes. Mouthfeel is sour but not overpowering with some serious earthy funk at the finish. firstsip (752) - Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2014
