Slightly cloudy deep amber, slight off-white head. Aroma is funky with some brett, slightly fruity. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Flavor is tart, some tannins, astringent and wine-like.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2007
Large frothy light tan head. Cloudy and somewhat dark rust colored body. Sweet and soured bananas with a funk in the aroma. Taste is an aged sweet caramelly malt blanketed with some bretty lemon sourness. Leaves a drying stale character in the mouth after a minute. Really good and full of flavor. Great sour balance and creamy mouthfeel.

Hangover (1092) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Amber pour with a nice looking white head that retains nicely Aroma is spicy with some sourness and apple. Taste is nicely carbonated making it seem fuller than it really is. Malty middle leading quickly to a tart, bitter finish. There is quite a long finish where I picked up some oak, yeast and dried fruit. Slightly acidic. Pretty good.

I really enjoy the Jolly Pumpkin beers, but as I’ve stated before they kinda taste the same, this repeats that. Light sourness, high carbonation, dry, earhty, spicy and crisp. Nice oak flavor that amplifies the dry character. Really enjoyable as always.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Deep amber color with a thick head. Spicy aroma that is slightly perfumy and yeasty. Smooth body and crips flavor, sweet, somewhat tart, and a little spicy - has that distinct "Jolly Pumpkin" touch. Finish is dry. All in all a well balanced and good beer.

Aubrey (3490) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2008 Bottle: Burgundy-red with a wonderfully fluffy and lasting head. Very inviting nose had elements of yeast, citrus and spice. Yeast notes were especially great to smell. Mouthfeel was really nice. Lively carbonation at first, but it mellowed to perfection. Texture was chewy and smooth. Finish was dry and not cloying. Wheaty malts had only a slight sweetness, which offset the bitterness very nicely. In the background there was oak, dried apricot and tart raspberries. Tartness was perfect, btw. What a wonderfully pleasant beer. Very nice.

bgburdman9 (860) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Poured dark hazy brown color with a white head that actually grew for about 5 minutes after the beer was poured. The aroma made me think this was going to have quite a bit of sourness. The aroma had a nice yeast maltiness to it. Flavor was really smooth and easy to drink. A lot of light fruitiness maybe a slight citrus feel to it. A slight tartness and bitterness to this one. This one feels great in the mouth, good carbonation and a body that fits the beer well. This beer would be pleasing on a cold winter night or a hot summer day. Refreshing yet still packs a mouthful of flavor.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of sk8viking. Hazy, orangey golden with a beige head. Acidic, woody aroma with some "noble rot" - very much like a Flemish Sour. Medium body with extremely dy caramel accents, overripe fruit and flowers. The finish is both acidic and bitter. Very delicate indeed. 290407
