3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great Taste, 2009. One of the best aromas of the day, with notes of orange, fig, apricot, and bing cherry. On the palate is plenty of funk, and the beer shows its complexity and the craft of the brewer. Notes of dried stone fruit and red wine vinegar, with a finish of vanilla and toasty oak. Not quite as refreshing on a hot day as the other JP beers were, but this was the most complex among them.
