4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nearly opaque peachy orange. Looks really pretty.
Faint citrus(grapefruit stands out) and funk. Wood.
Sweet, sour, and vinous with lots of citrus and tropical fruit, particularly grapefruit, lemon, passion fruit, and pineapple. Finishes with bitter pink grapefruit and oaky funk. Dry as a bone.
I’d love to get another taste of this, but I doubt I’ll ever see it again. Rats!

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a large off white head. The aroma is tart, slightly fruity lemony citrus, hay, mild honey sweetness and the typical JP funk. The flavor has the JP funk, tart, citrus, acidic, wood, yeast, with a hint of hay. Brett character.

Shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad!
The beer appears straw yellow colored with 3/4" white head which leaves a thick sheet of sticky lacing slowly cascading down the snifter.
The aroma is delightful. Sour, funk, grass, lemons, lemon zest, pepper.
The flavor is equally enjoyable. Complex and well balanced. Loads of funk with a floral hop finish. Lemons and a hint of assorted citrus. Really drinkable. I would love to have more of this. One of the most delicious beers I have had from Jolly Pumpkin.

Bottle 330ml @ fonefan
Pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is sour with an aroma almost like belgian lambic with a vinegar and acetone. Taste is light sweet and medium to heavy sour with a dry, sour finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. It’s a lightly hazy one, golden in color and with a small, off-white head. Lovely aroma with some barnyard hints, a spiced touch and some lemon notes. The flavor too has a nice spiced touch, with some faint vinegar notes. Lemon peel, barnyard, old leather and some grapefruit. Medium body, quite tart, but far from too dry. Lasting finish with grapefruit and funk. A really pleasant one, tasteful and very enjoyable. 121109

Sehr frischer und klarer Säurebeginn, breit, dafür mild, passende Herbe. Apfelnoten, trockene Säure. Erdig, das Bier besitzt einen leichten Essigstich. Zum Ende weiter trocken, eher Limette. Sehr gut! 9/12/11/13/12/12

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from JStax. Pours a nice pale golden color with a big fizzy four finger head that laces a bit and falls but keeps a cap throughout the beers life. On the nose... lots of basement funk, sweet citrus and floral touches, bits of sharp cheese.... on the palate it comes across softer than I was expecting and very well balanced. Big sour orange flavors with a bit of bitterness, funk, lime, vinegar lead into a tart dry finish...grassy floral. Yum.
