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.

One of the best Jolly Pumpkin beers I’ve had. Really funky and weird. Very refreshing. Will definitely be getting more of this.

Blend 2 Bottled 2/24/10
Tasted on 9/17/13 from a capped 750mL bottle that has been in the cellar for quite some time. Pours dark, opaque, mahogany with an average white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is very tart with tons of lemon acidity, white wine vinegar, a touch of burnt rubber funk, and just a light hint of the caramel malt that is obviously providing the darkness of this beer. The flavor is extremely sour and tart with tons of lemon, wine vinegar (very vinous), a nice touch of vanilla oak, and a very nice caramel malt underlying. The body is medium with a woody, tannic texture, lively carbonation, and a long, super sour and vinous finish. This beer with age is otherworldly.

Appearance: Brown orange color with thin white head
Aroma: Musty malty and cinnamon
Taste: Toasted caramel malt. Slightly tart with notes of orange, ginger and nutmeg. A bit reminiscent of a hefeweizen
Overview: A good introduction to the sour genre as its seems to be a cross between a kolsch and a oud bruin

Amazing tart fruit nose with the perfect amount of horse blanket. Light and refreshing with a gentle sour finish. Barrel notes, flavors abound. Perfect beer for sushi or even jambalaya. World class, thank u Ron.
