Once upon a funk beer. All funk from smell to taste, still being a good drinker and under control. Much funkier than any JP I have ever tried. Great looks with a big fomay head and lots of lace, that also serve to cushion the tongue and make for a smooth drinkable beer. Thanks for scoring, Doug K.

Wanted to try this beer forever, don't remember who shared it at FFF's 15th, but thanks a bunch.

A - Dark orange beer that's got some haze. Not a lot of head on it, and what was there didn't stay around for very long.

S - Has some yeast, tart apples, grapes. Decent sourness and tartness. Slight acetone with some oak and vanilla.

T - Taste is pretty nice. There's a bit of wood there, decently sour with some tartness. You get the apples in there, and a bit of other fruit with a hint of spice. Solid.

M - Mild carbonation with a medium bodied beer.

O - Good stuff. Has a good bit going on with it, wouldn't mind tracking this down again and revisiting with a larger share of the bottle.
