5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
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!

From a bottle, into snifter. Body is a cloudy peach, nose is fantastic, with light fruit, peach, apricot, very floral. Body is medium to light with silky carbonation that tingles the tounge, moderately sour with hints of funk. Balanced complex refreshing, great beer.

bottle. borderline bottle bomb. just really, really carbonated. kind of an odd amber color with huge head. the least sour JP beer i’ve had. definitely some funky tartness, but not truly sour. big fruity, floral notes. excellent flavor. wish the carbonation would be dialed back, but otherwise great.

Funky tart aroma. Murky amber color with a strong off-white head. Starts off tart but fades to a light spiced saison.

A real gusher, not sure it is as it should. Pours a milky amber body with a guant head. A sour aroma. Sour fruity taste.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ Jolly Pumpkin: Deep, swamp ruby-red color with patches of brown. Dense in color, although light does make it’s way through a bit. Topped with a thin, soapy, rose-tinted layer of foam. Aroma is extremely unique & incredibly complex. Such a mix of spice, flowers, & fruit. Heavily floral up front, like a patch of wild flowers. Notes of heavy hibiscus, lavender, roses, leaves, wood, wet oak, damp & earthy forest floor. Balanced well by notes of cherries, plums, tart apples, & some modest perfume. Back-end complete with a twinge of that signature JP funk; light cork, damp hay, & a nice, old barnyard stall mustiness. Wow. Nice flavor; very refreshing. Also heavily floral, yet soft at the same time. Lightly herbal tea leaves, white pepper, lavender oil, dry hibiscus, clove, tart cherries, light apple, sopping wet driftwood & funky oak. Funk grows to a cheesecloth & damp cellar floor finish with plenty of tannins, grape flavors, spicy yeast esters, & a small kiss of fruit. Dry, crisp, light, quaffable. My head is going to explode. Fantastic beer, one of my favorites from Jolly Pumpkin.
