Pailhead (5588) - 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 (3923) - 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 (4625) - 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.

SpongeRuiner (906) - Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2014
Pours a deep thick golden color. With a thick foamy white head. Very funky tart smell. A lot of different flavors all over this. Initially a strong rye flavor that really lasts the whole thing. A lot of bubblegum flavors mixed in with a hop background. Leaves a sour flavor on your lips after every sip. Really a unique beer.
