Thanks Adam. Golden orange body with a small white head. Funky brett, fruity notes, malt, yeast. Lovely flavor. Bready citrus with loads of Jolly Pumpkin brett funk. Delicious.

Bomber at Jerry’s. Brilliant, clear orange-amber with frothy white head, good lacing / Clean nose of orange, banana, resin, spun sugar, earth, rye spice / Medium body, resinous, some sweetness but well balanced by biting hops, bitter finish / Subdued flavors of orange rind, lemon, wildflower, grain / A departure for JP, not as successful, especially as nuanced, as their more established style.

This is not a tripel. This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing roaming here and there around the glass. The smell had a nice real authentic citrus to spicy rye. A light rye malt enters in as it warms. The taste was mainly sweet but had a light spicy rye to the flavor. A nice light sweet rye aftertaste accompanies the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. I’d say that the carbonation was good for me and for the style. Overall, I say this was a pretty good rye beer. This is not a tripel, there’s nothing that tells me it has the characteristics of a tripel in the smell and taste.

adnielsen (10081) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2014
GABF 2014. Pours a fairly clean golden appearance with a tan head. Some twangy citrus notes along with a spicy element. A little juicy. Kind of bland. Disappointing.

jredmond (6297) - Manhattan, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle sampled at GABF 2014. Pours a hazy maber body with thick white head. Aroma is funky fruit and typical JP souring character. Flavors are much more pronounced than the nose. Light, gentle grain in the finish.

solidfunk (5286) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Awesome balance. A little heavier on the bretta side than the tripel side. Still some coriander here. Pours golden with good head and lacing. Some grapefruit as well. Finishes with light sweetness and some tangy sense. Good sense. Bottle shared by Ed at Churchkey - thanks!

Bottle courtesy of Ed, at Churchkey. Thanks! Poured a hazy golden color, with a white head. Aroma was light wheat notes, tartness, with some rye spice notes. Flavor had nice yeast character, with some light sour fruits. Very tasty.

Travlr (15893) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Ed, thanks! Slightly hazy golden color, bright white head. Aroma of beautiful white wine, dust, pepper. Taste is really nice, softly sour fruit and dusty barnyards and attic corners. Delicious.

marcus (7554) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle from Supermarket Liquors. Pours dirty blonde with a decent off-white head and a fruit and rye aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with that slight sourness that is typical to this brewery. The rye adds some nice bitterness and counteracts the usual banana esters from the yeast.

bhensonb (12454) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours translucent gold with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is typical tripel with rye spice and an underlying sour note. Med body. Flavor is JP sour with rye spice and fruity esters. It’s not sour sour, but it has that signature. Quite nice.
