Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, - APR 2, 2010
Here is the story; I left my house last night, going to the hospital with my wife. 4½ hours later I return with my new born son Melvin, a perfect little boy. Sitting in my couch at 1 am looking at him I need something to celebrate and find my newly arrived EYO from JP in the fridge. It might be the situation or it might just be the beer, but this is the most perfectly balanced beer I can remember having since.....well since Orval maybe. Fruit, funk, drinkability is just perfect. It makes me think, this is the kind of beer thats the reason I’m in the beer business, the reason I started drinking craft beers to begin with. Thanks a lot JP and cheers to my new son Melvin! I will take you to Dexter when you are old enough so that you can experience maybe the greatest brewery in the world for yourself!

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2014
750 ml bottle from The Wine and Cheese Place. 2011 vintage. I can’t remember the blend or batch and can’t find the bottle now. Anyway, this one pours a somewhat hazy amber, especially on later pours, with an inch of off-white head. Big funk all the way through. Very floral still, and the rose and hibiscus are apparent. Also some mixed fruits (citrus, tropical, berry), earth, mixed malts and grains, straw, and grass. Medium-bodied, with a funky mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Holds up pretty well. I liked this.

weark (276) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle from Erzbierschof - Hazy amber/reddish color with a small white head, good lasting and lacing - Aroma of Bret., vinous/cider, floral, rose, rose hip and red fruits - Flavor is malty, wheat, rose and flower - Medium body, fizzy carbonation, creamy, sour and dry, light bitterness, long sour and dry finish - I’m starting to appreciate more and more sour beer this one is very complex and very good

Dfonorow (1329) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Pour is orange/red with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is subdued because of the head, but includes notes of pear, apple juice, pine, cloves, and roses. Flavor is sweet and slightly sour with a finish of spice and fruit.

On tap at Jackie O’s Public House on 4/22/14. Clear red pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of funk, slight tart cherry and herbs. Tart flavor giving way to sweet malt before a funky and fruity finish.

unclemike (2213) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAY 2, 2014
wow what a great beer Poured a medium to deeper amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of floralness, herbal, citrus, and lightly funky. Tastes of caramel, floral, spices, and the same lighter funkiness. Nice light sour and tart after taste. Wow, only 4.3% - I could drink this one all day!

veronneaupy (105) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2014
Très bonne saison. On reconnaît le côté surette signature de Jolly Pumpkin. Je l'ai pe bu un peu froide, mais le nez était assez tranquille mais tout le reste très délicieux! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlackerMads (1413) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2014
Non gushing bottle, batch 389. Hazy orange with a large frothy off white head. Strong flowery nose with some barnyard, mustiness and light lactic notes as well. Flavor is dominated by wood and dried strawberry with barnyard and lighter flowery notes in the background lasting into a mild finish. Light biscuity malt notes. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, medium sweet and acidic with little bitterness. Good balance and drinkability but also enough going on to have contemplative qualities.
