The oak aging is very prominent. Looks really good poured in the glass. Real light aroma.

mcberko (9752) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy dark orangey brown with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of oak, light tartness, and light wild yeast. Flavour is complex, with loads of oak, light tartness like a Flanders Red, and some wild yeast. Super complex, with a lovely tartness and oakiness. An archetype for Biere de Gardes out there. Fantastic.

NachlamSie (3000) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2015
750 mL from Mile High. This is a brilliant dark amber with a long lasting white head. The aroma is funky with notes of baking spices, dark fruits, chestnuts and acidity. The palate is medium full and soft in the mouth. Carbonation is assertive. There are flavors of wool, goats, toffee, nuts, vinaigrette, berries, and bread. Finish is bone dry. Needless to say, Jolly Pumpkin has been and continues to master sour beer.

slowrunner77 (7278) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 19, 2015
A very interesting mix of fruit, tartness, funk and malt. No real hop presence. Definitely has that house JP flavor, but that’s ok too. Slightly overcarbonated, but good stuff.

EtTuCthulhu (1385) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUN 18, 2015
The beer pours a hazy orange color with an enormous off-white head that fades slowly. The aroma blends acidity, sour fruit, and some low-level caramel malts. The taste is mildly sour and a touch sweet with a slightly oak flavor alongside some sour fruit notes. The palate fuses a medium body, slick texture, and a soft carbonation.

Meilby (9762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle 750ml @ Jolly Pumpkin Cafe & Brewery, Ann Arbor, MI
Pours hazy amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, yeast, funk and citrus. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter and light sour with a long slightly dry, fruity, funky and citrus finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle, 75cl, at Jolly Pumpkin, Ann Arbor. A hazy amber colored beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is tad weak I think, with dried fruit notes, lemon juice, some leathery, barnyard funk and a hint of fruit caramel. It’s medium bodied and dry on the palate, quite effervescent, with flavors of dried fruit, lemon juice and funk. Grapefruit bitter. Lasting finish. Needs some temperature this one, but even then it’s not more than good. 150614

ttoadee (1010) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2015
Brown pour, amber hue, quick off white head. Nose is a hint of cherries, wood, funky yeast. Somewhat sour. Middle is soft leather, plums, sweet malt, and light toffee. Finish is sour and refreshing. Try this one, preferably with food (Mild Italian sausage, baked beans and fresh Roma tomatoes for me.)

bwa5879 (817) - Portage, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Very cloudy orange brown pour with white corona of head. Cottony sweet tart aroma, apple and florals with a hint of lactose, straightforward. Very soft carbonation, tingly mouthfeel - detectable sour, crisp dry finish. Flavor of cracked pepper, lots of lemon and apple, barnyard funk, earthy malt. Nice light bodied sour that doesn’t overdo it.

spacecube (1378) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2015
750ml bottle, pours amber, chestnut with a small white head. Aroma is light malt, oak, balsamic vinegar, sour yeast. Light bodied, oily texture, finish is light medium sour with light hop bitterness. Carbonation is soft. Not had a Brett beer quite like this and its very drinkable.
