This one lacks some of the depth of some of the others, although they all seem to be missing something I cant put my finger on. Pleasant tartness. Good fruitiness. Peppery spice. Im not sure what it is that I want this beer to have that it doesnt have.

Bottle via trade with zathrus13. "11/05 "hand written on the crown. GUSHER! About ten minutes later Ive cleaned the room up a bit, the whole room smells like a spicy Belgian yeast and the bottle is sitting in the bath tub where it sits in a pool of murky golden liquid with reddish colored chunks in it. Despite what Id usually consider to be a sign of infection the beer actually smells pretty good; yeasty with a lot of spices, slight clove and apple notes too. TART apple flavors with some lemony notes. Hints of banana, straw, grain of paradise(?) and some oranges. Very effervescent, like champagne. Extremely dry finish, actually makes you thirsty!

Light on the palate and slightly fizzy. A little bit of sour fruit, hints of grape juice, wine, and yeast. Alcohol provides a slight dryness. Hints of pepper. This beer also has a little bit of that brett quality that you find in some Belgian beers. Not a bad beer, but seems a little bit raw.

Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours golden with a large billowing white head, becareful it may go over the top. Aroma of citrus, fruit, spices, and yeast. Flavor is sweet, smooth, spices, citrus, fruitiness. Good body, impressive beer for a style i am not a fan of.

One of those beers where the first sip really blows me away and takes me a second to wrap my head around. Flavors of lemon, pear, corriander and other spices. Lots of brett funk, including a nice sourness in the finish. A beer that really plays on your palate. The flavors seem to move around, come together, separate, etc. I dont know how they do this, but it is great. Manages to be quite sweet, but also finishes dry. Nice thick coating mouthfeel, but ultimately light and airy. Not sure how either of these contradictions work, but they do. The thing that really blows me away is how fresh it tastes. Typically, a funky brett style belgian like this tastes musty and old (in good way). This one manages to stay rich and explosive. Very impressive beer.

The aroma has alcohol, yeast (barnyard), malt, fruit, and spice. The appearance is deep gold with some small particles. The flavor is exactly like the aroma with plenty of pepper and citrus. The palate is smooth. Its a must have.

Yellow orange pour in a snifter. Sour, green apple lemon notes in the aroma. Very nice mix of interesting aromatics meshed with the usual barnyard characteristics typical of JP. White grape flavor similar to a sweet white wine like a Gewuerztraminer. High carbonation and a sweet, sugary body tails off into a short yeasty finish. Quite nice. I really enjoy JP!
