4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brought by Todd for my birthday tasting. Thanks a bunch for this Todd! Cloudy golden orange in color with a fingers worth of tight white head. Nose is ridiculously complex. It is bursting with juicy citrus fruit and some subtle grassy, citrusy hops. It reminds me kinda like Hill Farmstead Mimosa, but I think this is slightly better. Flavor is bright and tart, white wine character, citrus, and classic Jolly Pumpkin yeast. Light mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, light acidity, and a long finish. Might be over thinking this a bit, but this beer is one of the best American sours I’ve had to date. It’s so bright and juicy and just alive with flavor. Thanks a bunch for introducing this to me Todd, this was a memorable experience.

Pours murky deep yellow amber with a grayish white head. Aroma brings some soft mint and floral notes, suggestions of lavender. Flavor brings a tart balanced dryness with dry lemony tang ending, nice herbal notes from the healthy additions.

Batch 522, bottled 7/22/2010. 750ml bottle pours a very hazy straw gold with some creamy, white head. Nose is lemony, herbal, mild oak, grass, straw, musty but also floral. Flavor is mildly tart, earthy, mildly sweet, a little almond, grass, lime, parsley, a little celery seed. Herbal although clean finish. Really cool.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye ! Pours a hazy yellow golden color with two fingers of thick white foamy fizz. This beer rides the line of weird and strange and delicious. Lots going on from vegetal barnyard soaked musky oak to bright lemon, stonefruit and tart funk. Really interesting balance...hard to wrap your head around. Pepper, twig tea, some pumpkin roundness...Mouthfeel is perfection with great tiny bubble carbonation that fizzes the finish out into something special.

Bottle (750 ml). Bottled on 7-22-2010. Shared by Pier-Luc, thanks! Slightly hazy golden/orange, small fully lasting white head and good lacing. Aroma is of Jolly Pumpkin usual funk (but lesser than most of their beers), nice spices mix, pumpkin, oak, winey notes and lemon/citrus. Taste is slightly sweet with light funk, nice acidic presence, spices, lemon/citrus, oak, light herbal notes and pumpkin. Light to medium body. Light carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Nice balance. Really fresh despite being 3 years. Not too acetic. Mild, but really complex. I really enjoyed that one.

Bottle shared by craytonic. Thanks Matt!
The beer is hazy and orange, with a finger of dense, white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. The aroma offers some funky citrus, with some lemon zest and subtle spice. Lots of citrus and funk in the flavor. Delicious Brett character. Quite good. Very drinkable. Smooth on the palate, with a pleasant lingering aftertaste.
