AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 23, 2007
2006 Vintage. An orangey-red color, lightly hazy with an uncharacteriscally Jolly Pumpkin, thin head that is bone white. Aroma is intense with rotting, sour cherries, oak, vanilla, coconut, and a red wine-like acidic overlay. Powerfully intense flavor profile. All of the aroma components are in the flavor with the oak showing freshness, lots of coconut, a solid sweetness, and a balancing tannic bite.

nimbleprop (7006) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2016
On tap at Jolly Pumpkin in Detroit pours a muddy brownish amber with basically no head. Nose is a mix of dark fruit, some dried fruit, a little vinegar, some wood pulp. Flavor is tart with acid and underipened fruit, raisins, dates, some apricot too, light tobacco notes, some cooked greens, some neutral oak. Dry finish.

Bottle from Spec's. Hazy, almost muddy, reddish-brown with a very tiny off-whitish head. Aroma of sour cherry, musty wood, and caramel. Taste is sour and woody. Slick, slightly dry, and medium bodied. Good.

NikkTwist (2469) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2016 Draft at Bru Craft. Cloudy chestnut brown pour that started with a solid top of soft khaki foam. Big tannic brown fruit sour. Prunes. Sour cherries. Browned peaches. Dried lemons, apricots and figs. Pineapples. Lots of drying oak tannins but still sharply tart.

kidmartinek (4387) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2016
Clouded brown with a red tint. Sticky head. Sour aroma and very sour flavor with notes of citrus fruit with a cool, light body. Well made. Good balance and very easy to continually enjoy.

Tap at Vinsetta’s garage. Pours hazy copper, off white head. Aroma is fig, dark cherry, oak, sour funk. Amazing. Flavor is dark cherries, sour funk, fig, some. Toffee, slightly woody. It has a lot going on. A hop bitterness in the finish. Awesome.

Lilja (2540) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2016
Ölföreningen 2015. Flaska, 2012 vintage. Smak och doft av trä, körsbär, ek, jord, toner av hallon och frysta jordgubbar, karamell med toner av vinäger. Fruktig, något syrlig, stor sötma, bra balans mellan smakerna. Mycket gott!

Very good.

Vignale (3090) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2015
Flaska från demolenbeershop drucken med ölgörningen. 2012 vintage. Större kropp och mer sötma än ett genomsnittsöl från JP som funkar väldigt bra med laktosyrligheten som är bryggeriets hussmak. Sötman lyfter verkligen smakerna och höjer fuktigheten, honungsmjuk vinäger, aprikos, körsbär- och plommon kärnor, kastanjer. riktigt gott.

tightslice (789) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle from Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is mild musty things, animal horns, stone fruits, dried apricots, underripe cherries. Taste is tart underripe cherries, fermented strawberries / stone fruits and bone dry, oakiness. The pre-cursor to all things Prairie Artisan Ales but not as wild.
