Poured from a 750ml bottle and served in a tulip. This beer poured a murky brown with a sustained head of fluffy tan foam. Solid lace encompassed the entire glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of caramel, mild citrus, cinnamon, and also an oaky, vinous note. The flavor included lightly sour cherries, orange, spicy yeast, and an almost hidden trace of roasted malt. Mildly funky, but the taste seems to be muted by this aspect. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with light carbonation. This beer definately has the house characteristics you'd expect from a JP beer, but not much else. Still fairly enjoyable though.

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
