arminjewell (9210) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, gusher from the bottle. Hazy orange-red pour with fluffy and lacing white head, aroma brought notes of sour grain, hints of lemon, slight spice, yeast, rye notes into a bit of oak, apricot jam, hints of slight funk. Taste is a mix of oak, lemon, some slight booze into a bit of earth, grain, slight harsh notes into some funk, slight yeast, rye, finishing fairly sweet, slightly tart, funky.

Pailhead (6278) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of funky brett, lemon peel, candi sugar, dusty yeast notes, sweet citrus, tropical fruit, and faint floral notes. It pours a hazy dark orange with a three finger white head that has pretty good retention before eventually settling to a thick film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus with a touch of candi sugar. The finish has a lot of brett funkiness, lemon, lemon peel, floral notes, and light pepper. As it warms, I get a hint of alcohol. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate-lively carbonation with a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, it’s very tasty, but like a lot of Jolly Pumpkin beers, flavor-wise, this is a Tripel in name only.

SHIG (4381) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Sample at Culmination Fest: Poured a clear yellow with off white head. Aroma was a bit sour and spice. Taste was very spicy rye but not much depth otherwise.

Bottle thanks to mark. Not as sour as a typical JP brew. Nice color and aroma. Not my favorite flavor combo.

vyvvy (5381) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 24, 2014
Pours dull golden / orange with a nice soapy off-white head. The aroma has banana, rich malt, rye spice, lemon, dry spices, mustiness, caramel and a touch of tartness. It has a medium crisp body with pretty soft carbonation. The taste starts out on the drier side for the style. On the buggy side and some tartness included. Light crackers, citric tartness/spice and rye spice. The finish has a bit of an oakiness even though this doesn’t say it was aged in any barrel. Interesting - I really like this one.
