I’m not in love with JP beers by any stretch of the imagination, mainly because when they classify a beer within a style I only crack it open to find a beer that is full of funk and therefore OUT of style. Of course with this being labeled a Saison, the funk is appropriate and I will score it higher accordingly.
$6.00, 12oz bottle, Taco Mac, Marietta. Pours a golden hazy color with a good looking, rocky, large head. Ice-cream like on the top, but much less dense at the bottom of the head with some quite large bubbles.
Happy (for a change) to report a JP beer with significant funk in the nose – in this case appropriate. Smooth and easy drinking, this does have a little much sourness for my taste, but at least that particular element is OK in this beer – in so many other JP beers it is not. Tasty notes of weak honey and apples.
Not my favorite beer in the style, nor my favorite brewer, but this beer is a t least non-offensive.
