On Tap: Another good offering from Jolly Pumpkin. I had it with a Turkey Reuben, not a bad paring. Dark carmel color. Moderate carbonation. Slight yeastiness. Fruit notes.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2006
Loud PSSHH upon cracking the cap; was afraid I’d have a gusher. It settled down and poured a hazy yellowish amber color. Thick fizzy lingering head. Aroma has yeasty fruit (orange-pineapple juice), spice, funky wheat. Initial taste is light, tart fruit with a dry yeasty finish. Very "summer" feeling. Delicately balanced, and a great drink but an initial shock to the tastebuds that wanted something bigger.

Darkover (1518) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2007 Gold/bronze color with a huge fluffy beige head. Aroma of spices and yeast. Flavor of spices and tart fruit.

12 oz bottle. Clear pale gold in color with a nice white fluffy head. Sweet and fruity aroma. Tart. Apple notes. Lemony, yeasty and spicey flavor. Crisp tasting. Finish is hoppy. Refreshing. Enjoyable.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 10, 2006
Bottle. Cider gold with a bubbly, white head, and lacing. Aroma is sweet and sour apple and grape. Taste is barnyard and lemon with a sweet streak and a refreshing carbonation. Perfect in the abv and just a delight to savor. My favorite JP beer in a while.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - APR 7, 2006
Nose of pears, spice, and pepper; in addition, something interesting that I can put a face on. Pours a sparkling hazy golden straw. The large white rocky head is wispy with exceptional retention. O how I love big hunks o’lace sticking to the side of my glass. The toasty character reminds me initially of a dortmunder/helles somewhat, but with more acidity. This offering is an example of how balanced a brew can be. Subtle and clever. The medium body is very lively and creamy.

iowaherkeye (2696) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2006 12oz. bottle. Pours a hazy light golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma of pepper, clove, Belgian yeast, sour cherries. I think it’s pretty balanced because I sit here thinking, it’s sweet, no it’s bitter, etc. Tartness is definitely there, and finishes into a grassy sweet mustiness. Sharp carbonation Pretty good.

TheBeerGod (5341) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Schroppfy! Pours a golden amber with a bubbly but dense white head. Nose instantly exudes Bretty aromas, tart fruits, horseblanket and light litterbox/cat urine hints. Lots of dusty, cobweeby yeasts in this as well as flowers and light spices(hints of pepper). Taste is suitably bitter and hoppy, though floral. Sour fruit flavors intersect with Belgian yeasts, soft wood notes, horseblanket, semi-sweet maltiness, light Bretty notes and spices. Body is light and very bubbly with a sharp carbonation feel at times. However, like some other saisons, it still feel "full". Ends on a spicy and floral hop note. Lots of bitterness during the finish. Flowers, yeast, soft, citrus fruit flavors, light barnyard, and a nice tartness. Very pleasant saison!

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2006
I hope this will break the string of brews that have been less than appealing to me tonight. Lightly hazed straw color with a foamy off white head that settles to a centimeter of foam and leases one large ring of lace. Light grapes, lemon zest, hints of horseblanket, wild flowers and weeds, light anise and mild melon swim through the nasal cavities. Somewhat watery in feel, but i would guess that there should be some airiness to this one. A delicate balance of pale malts and a floral hops existence. Light lemony finish that keeps things crisp and clean. A summers evening or even a bright spring day type brew. Enjoy the warmth of the breeze or buds sprouting. This one seeks the soul and drives out the bad spirits. Thanks Michael and Jason.

shadey (1913) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2006
Beautiful golden color with a huge chunky white head that slowly receeds, leaving a very nice lace on the glass. The aroma is a little sour with floral and hop notes. There is also yeast and some of that funk. The flavor is different. Upfront it is rough hopiness and then it fads to a sour funkiness and the finish is actually slightly toasted sweetness. I can definitely understand the attraction. For a beer with only 4.5% alcohol there is an amazing level of complexity here. Very well done.
