Pours dark reddish orange with a small head. Aroma of tart berries, earthy notes, spices and ripe fruits. Taste is smooth, tartish and yeasty with some earthy notes, spices and wood. Finish is oaky, woody and tartish with some earthy notes and yeast. Okay sourish farmhouse ale.

On tap at Jolly Pumpkin. Very nice, refreshing, cider-y but with a great biter back end. Really nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This sour is so complex but so refreshing & out of the box. Earthy fruity flavors are abundant with a huge sour kick. Not for the beginner sour drinker, but a huge success for us that love sours.

Had a glass on tap at the pub. Wow, this is pretty outstanding. Quite funky, good sourness, but well balanced and very light and drinkable.

Bottle, batch two bottled 2/28/2013. Pours clear ruby amber with a small beige head and good lacing. Aroma is light tart cherry, oak, a bit o’funk and some lemon. Flavor is lightly tart, light sweet, lemon, oaky with a little bit of astringency, vanilla, cherries. Medium body, low carbonation. Refreshing and tasty; hints of a milder more sessionable supplication. Light herbal notes develop as the beer warms.

DrSilverworm (5917) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2014
750ml bottle, shared with my hosts at a dinner party. Batch 2, bottled 2/28/13. Mostly clear red orange brown color. Thin off-white head. Couple dots and ropes of lace. Medium to bigger body, more full than you’d expect from 4.5% [was this 4.5%? I thought that’s what the bottle said..]. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink. Nice, complex aroma. Good dark fruit. Light cherry. Some fig. Light floral, citrus. Just a hint of spice. Light vanilla, butterscotch. Where I work, this seems to be a favorite among fans of Jolly Pumpkin. Now I understand why. Very robust and complex, and more rich than expected. Nice moderate sour taste, light tart more, really. Moderate sweet. Much haze in the last pour. Wonderful, complex, robust, surprisingly easy drinking and rich open-fermented ale.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, dark reddish brown pour with white head, aroma brought tart red fruits, hints of vanilla, nice oaky notes in there with a mix of big spice, yeast, slight caramel and toffee as well. Taste is a mix of toffee, dark fruits and caramel into lots of spice, yeast, slight tart lemon, oak, finishing earthy, dry, slightly tart.

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have the usual JP funk from their house yeast, grass, lightly toasted bread, mild citrus, some acidity. Medium bodied, just a hint of caramel. Solid beer, but not my favorite from these guys.
