NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Bottle at RBSG Grand Tasting ’10. Pours a coppery-blond with fluffy head. Plenty of fizz. Nose is spicy and full. Quite bready with a nice phenolic overtone that lends a sweetness. booze hides out in the background. On taste, the rye keeps it spicy and dry. full bodied and alcohol is well hidden. some cloves. Well fermented. Finishes dry. Very tasty stuff.

changeup45 (1715) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Bottle from splax23. Batch 378. Dirty gold color and pours with a booming head but not a gusher. Fruity esters in the aroma along with cloves, mild spice, flowers, and the trademark JP funk. The flavors are spicy and dry. Fruity notes; tangerine, sharp citrus. This has some grainy notes and a little bit of the rye comes through as well that I didn’t really get in the aroma. Lots of funky yeast provides another element but I expect nothing else from JP. Very dry in the finish with a little alcohol sneaking in there. A very nice beer. Tastes more like a Saison than a Triple to me and I’ve got no problem with that at all.

brokensail (10530) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 12, 2010
A: The pour is a slightly hazy golden color with some hints of orange and amber. The head is a tower of white foam that takes some time to settle down to a level that allows drinking. S: A wonderful spice note is present right away, that seems to be the rye with maybe a hint of pepper or just some yeasty esters. A light funkiness along with some citrus zest and a hint of green fruits. T: The rye and yeast esters provide a really great spice note along with some bready malts that are the base of this beer. A gentle funk character with some hay and straw, and a great dry, bretty quality. A lightly tart lemon flavor and some hints of green apple. M: The body is medium with a very full carbonation that sort of tickles the tongue. D: The last couple Jolly Pumpkin special releases have really been fantastic. This one was no exception and I really enjoyed this beer.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2010
Bottle…RBSG 2010… Pours cloudy amber with a small, creamy, white head. Fantastic, permanent retention. I’m really picking up some nice funk in the otherwise acidic, spicy, herbal aroma. Medium to full-bodied and very creamy with tickling carbonation. The flavor is perfectly balanced between bitter and sweet. A bit funky and tart. The lengthy, bitter finish is also a touch dry.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Had this while camping at BCTC this year. Pours a hazy milky orange brown with a thin white head. Light spicy rye, soft caramel, and sweet fruit with a light Jolly Pumpkin funk on the nose. Spicy, toast and rye with some alcohol behind it. Long rye finish, sweet and spicy.

from Erzbierschof.ch - hazy reddish-brown in colour and with a solid persistent beige foam; aroma of dust, apples and vinegar; creamy palate and medium-bodied, unexpected notes of cork in the finish along with sourish, nutty and creamy notes

juiceisloose (1055) - Windermere, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2010
750 ml bottle, courtesy beerlando. This one pours a cloudy golden yellow color and topped by a thick, well retained head of off white foam. Thick rings of lace stick to the glass as the head recedes. The aroma shows notes of spicy rye grains, dry fruits, lemon peel, and the classic JP funk from the yeast. The flavor follows and is quite spicy with notes of lemon peel, pepper, and rye to go with the funky yeast. The fruits are there, but quite dry, which is nice. Medium bodied, crisp, and dry with balanced carbonation and a nice spicy finish. This is a nice brew and much better than any standard tripel.

Tmoney99 (10400) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Bottle shared at RBSG 2010. Poured clear brown with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Complex funky toasted malt and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration with a small alcohol bite. This is a complex good beer.
