Much like goose island matilda. Light golden orange color with overwhelming head following a gentle pour. Leaves bubble bath lacing in its wake. Spicy, mildly funky aroma. Flavor is spicy upfront with plenty of coriander and white pepper. Citric, detergent like hop. Minima acidity. Subtle Brett funk. Well balanced. Moderate body. Sharp carbonation. Dry feel. Overall, very good. I would classify this as a Belgian pale ale though more than a wild ale.

Tried this one along with LA Roja. Definitely enjoyed this one a bit more. The farmhouse ale style shines through.

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.
