ughh...im tired of JP"s beers...deep chesnut body/brownish red with minimal head..aroma is, as usual, much more pronounced and enjoyable that the flavor..very flemish-like, with hints of vinegar, raspberry, sour funk and must...oaky flavor with unpleasant hints of wet socks..like you are harboring a damp basement in your mouth...somewhat offensive..stone, slate, chalk...who wants that? I am starting to wonder why this brewery is so well-regarded...

Thanks to RagallachMC for the bottle (750ml). Batch (blend) 3. Hazy burnt orange color with a large head. Aroma of brett and malt with a lot of fruitiness (apricot, pear and cherry). Some spiciness in the taste, as well as a little oak. Tangy texture, dry with a lot of fruit/ funk.

skoisirius (1908) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2008
750 ml. YUM! Big malty beer with lots and lots of spice notes that tingle the palate while getting hit simultaneously with a blast of oaky goodness! Small hints of possible cherry notes, and overall, a nice big tartly sour finish. One of my favorite from JP!

DuffMan (9741) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 22, 2008
Deep copper brown, brief scanty head. Very skunky sour aroma. Sour cherry, funky earthy hops, spicey, very woody, puckeringly tart finish. Ive had a few sour ales recently, and they can be hard to sort out on the palate, but this came across as having a bit more spicey and woody character rounding out the sour tartness. Interesting and delicious, but not for everyone (half the table turned away from this one!).

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Bottle. Pours murky amber Brown. Traditional JP funk and citris. Some oak in the flavor and some light pigmented fruit. A nice dry finish to end glass.
