Pours a dark hazy amber into a tulip glass. About 2 fingers of off white head thats lingering for quite a while.
Smell is mostly funk from the wild yeast. Theres a generic spicy smell in the as well. Hard to pinpoint the invidual spices. Taste is an initial rush of wild yeast funk. Pretty typical JP. What follows the funk is what really sets this beer apart. The spice in the nose becomes much more easy to pick apart. A nice dry cocoa flavor is the most dominant with some coriander and Ginger as well.
Mouthfeel is good with just enough carbonation. Finish is perfect. Fairly dry with just enough sweetness. Flavor stays on the palate making it real easy to enjoy this one for a while.
Serving type: bottle

On tap at Winos in BG. I had this beer a while back, but just getting around to entering the review. Boring day at work.
A. Light mahogany with dark amber hues. Translucent. Poured a thick, fine bubble egg shell head that retreats to a frothy rim. Strong laces. Healthy head.
S. Traditional JP yeast. Neutral oak, light malts. Bretts.
T. Medium to light tartness. Medium roasted malts. Neutral oak. Fairly simple flavor.
O. Smooth, medium body, medium body.
O. This is a very straight-forward, lightly sour ale. I usually pass on browns, but this is not your typical brown. This is a sour, no doubt. This has session written in BIG LETTERS. I go for this every summer, but this can be enjoyed any season.
Serving type: on-tap
