Hazy yellow pour with big effervescent bubbles. Smells like cheesy feet, aromas open up into pear and wine and grape witha little bit of some bramble fruit once beer was at proper serving temperature. Extremely dry finish that left the tongue feeling almost leathery. Crazy all over the place but works.

Pour is bright golden amber with a right white head. Nose is heavy brett, leather, dusty earthy. Notes of lacto and a touch acetic. Stinging carbonation, sour on the edges, light hint of lacto. Dusty brett, touch of acetic acid with some golden fruits finishing highly carbonated and earthy. Body is very light an refreshing.

BoostIPA (1105) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - FEB 6, 2014
11.2oz bottle, blend 4, bottle 12-23-2011. Thanks, Atom! Pours a hazed light gold color with a large white head. Aromas of lots of funk, vaginal bacteria, sweat and oak. Taste is mildly tart, with a mineral presence, some oak is offered and a whole lotta funk. Bone dry. Medium-low carb. Finish is sweaty, oaky, musty with gym socks and crotch itch. Fantastic. Would drink again and again. Atom, please send me more of this!!!
I FUCKING LOVE CROTCH FUNK!!!

Clownoisseur (137) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Blend 2, bottled 3/15/2011. Pours a light blonde, fine carbonation, minimal head, very fine lacing. Aroma of must, oak, grapefruit, peach and a bit more funk. Taste is pretty acidic. Strong musty basement, hints of oak, more ctirus/grapefruit/peach...and some vineous notes. Very nice blend. The finish is very sharp, dry and acidic. Great sour.

Jesterdeal (1655) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2013
11oz. bottle shared by what’s his face. Aroma is mineral, lemon peel, brine, pears, and barnyard. Pours light blonde with a wispy film throughout the whole beer. Very well carbonated (but not overly). Taste is light with notes of lemon, starfruit, pear, brine, barnyard funk and mineral. This is about as close to a perfect Belgian gueuze that I’ve ever had from an American brewery. For such a subtle style I say, "Bravo, Jolly Pumpkin."

Steve_0 (2234) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Matt. Pour is light orange with a small white head and decent lacing. Funky, lemony, green apples, pears, lightly citrusy, biscuity, urine, and doughy aroma. Taste is big oak, light pear, lemons, sour citrus, grapefruity, orange peels, urine, and floral with a big sour finish. Medium body with light carbonation. Really nice stuff, thanks again Matt!!

mcberko (5368) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2013
12 oz. bottle, sent from pantanap (thanks a lot, Kan), pours a hazy golden orange with a small-medium white head. Nose is very funky, bringing out moderate acetic notes, barnyard funk, and some tart light fruit skins - exceedingly complex aromatics. Flavour brings out moderate-to-high tartness from light fruit skins, some low-to-medium funkiness, a lemon tang, and medium acidity. Really wonderful blend and well-crafted here. It doesn’t really taste like a lambic, but more of an American sour with some lambic influences. Highly complex and drinkable, despite being high carbonation. Wonderful stuff.

330 split 2 ways. Pours a nice orange color with a good sized white head that fades to nothing. Scent is extremely funky, dank wet basement. Taste is really nice... Sour, tart, and very smooth just enough carbonation to light up your taste buds. Nice clean finish. Another impressive offering from JP.

Wonderful acidic nose, slight acetic flavor on top of Chardonnay grapes. Great, lambicus finish.
