Big floral and lemon pepper nose. The taste is very hoppy, fairly tart, with pepper, lemons, flowers and honey malts. Very dry finish. Very nice.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Bottle, Batch #378. Medium to deep slightly hazy orange body, thick, puffy buff head. Sweet, fruity nose with pear, caramel, bread dough, and spice. Doughy body, plump for a Jolly Pumpkin beer, with light fruit, brown sugar, and spice, also plummy, with warming alcohol. Tart and tannic in the finish, building after a few sips, but thankfully never overwhelming the palate. This beer was a gusher, but I am happy that I was able to salvage most of the bottle.

auerbrau (3166) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 1, 2009
750mL Bottle. Aroma is a spicy amalgam of mulled cider, cooked coconut and seared pineapple, light, tropically floral and spicy. Carbonation furiously mixes a murky orange liquid beneath a fluffy, quite tall pear-flesh-colored head. The flavor is funky and unique. Heavily herbal and a bit meaty, with some sharp spiciness. Hard to parse and very muddled. Some fig paste, white cumin, sandalwood, incense, dried maple leaves, and white grape must. Sharp on the tongue and a bit alcoholic. A bite of generic hop bitterness hits me on the way down. The finish produces a half sweet/half savory spice and herb finish that lingers. While Im incredibly grateful to have an opportunity to try this, Im not sure its JPs finest effort.

JulienHuxley (3015) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2011
Bottle. Slight gusher. Amber pour with frothy dirty white head. Aroma is very rye forward, tons of brett, JP funk, some belgian yeast, quite spicey and yeasty. Taste is tart, lots of grain, tripel yeast, bready, a tad of alcohol. Palate is good, full bodied with prickly carbonation, long finish.

Brigadier (2930) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2014
750 ml bottle
Despite being an immediate gusher this was another excellent production from Jolly Pumpkin. Throwing rye into a tripel did not create some strange novelty. Instead this, kind of like rye IPAs, sets itself apart while retaining the characteristics of a beer true to style.

Aroma / Appearance - After the foam settled the glass was full of caramel bronze liquid. The bubbly foam never really settled 100% but instead left a layer of frosting. Graham crackers, caramel, pretzels, sourdough bread, and rye all contribute to a thick and sweet experience.

Flavor / Palate - Creamy with a tickle of spices this is not subtle. The full bodied mouthfeel contains within a blend of yeast, rye, caramel, and bittersweet chocolate. The long lasting finish gives plenty of time for reflection as well. A well rounded release is definitely a winner if you want something different than your average tripel.

Bottled 75cl. Brettanomyces throughout. Not bothered to write too much, because I am talking on the phone with grandma and rating and drinking this beer. Delicious.

BuckeyeBoy (2692) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Bottle thanks to ditmier Batch #378. Pours out cloudy golden topped with a white head. Aroma was of sweet pit fruit, belg yeast, spice, and light malts. Taste was all of the aroma along with a little more light malts, hops, and rye. A little wood and bitterness on the end.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Hazy amber pour with a rocky white head and drippy lace.. This slowly gushed. Aroma is light clove, dark fruit and sour mash. Cotton candy, doughnut, sour grape and green apple. Tart and kinda slick finish

Defreni (2603) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2010
Flaske: Meget sjov l. Rugen er meget dominerende i bde smag, duft og farve. Orange l med et fint skumhoved. Proteinklumper i bunden. Duften er lkker med en tand jolly i den. Smagen er kompleks men ikke helt balanceret, for megen rug. Fin mundfylde men ikke helt oppe og ringe.
