Tap pour @Covenhoven. Opaque copper color. Thin head. Tart, cherry nose. Taste follows. Smooth. Lots of cherries. Some strawberry sweetness lurking behind.

Bottle - 75 cl. Heads up for an excellent work with the labels. Dark and amber-golden that is almost clear with a white head. I scent citrus and almonds and something like lactose. The taste is calm, sourish and not very powerfull. I taste vinegar, some orange-peel and tonicwater

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle (batch #256), thanks sersdf. Chestnut color with a whipped egg-white-like head. Smells slightly flemish - oak, funk, spices (clove, cardamom), apple pie, hay, cheesey. Pithy flavor with more funkiness. Tartness left on the lips. Tonic water aftertaste and light bodied. Not my favorite JP, but it has it’s merits.

T: nice tropical fruit flavors, hints of papaya, coconut, and a dash of mango. big time sours in this. absolutely delicious. great malt, but the barrel aging in outstanding. M: higher carbonation level, bu fits the beer. great palate all over this one. very unique mouthfeel. velvety.

jimmack34 (640) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Pours dark amber brown with a decent beige head. Smells of sour apple bubble gum and spiced malt. Tastes like sour apples, sour grape, some smoked wood, some spice, slightly citrusy, tart, very acidic. White wine-like dry finsh. This is the first beer of this style that I have tryed and it is overwhelmingly good. Its not like anything Ive tried. Very complex and very unusual. Awesome.

Bottle courtesy of unclejedi. Thank you, sir. This has been one of my most wanted beers for quite a while, very excited to finally try it.Pours a really nice looking amber/orange body, tons of carbonation shooting up from the bottom of the glass. Huge, pillowy white head, very sudsy and soapy looking. Unbelievable lacing all over the glass, I don’t see how a beer of this style could look any better, so I have to give it a 5. Nose is tremendous, lots of flower petals, various spices, yeast, barnyard funk, oranges, lemons, apples and pears. I’m probably shorting it by not giving it a 9, but for some reason I can’t quite go there. Flavor brings a ton of oak into play that I really couldn’t get in the aroma, along with the wonderful sour fruits and yeasts that were present in the nose. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. Very refreshing, even when we were freezing our asses off. Finishes crisp and bitter, also with a nice sour note to round things out. Wonderful beer, criminally underrated I think.

Although this beer is not recieving much praise, I completely disagree; it’s a great beer. Wonderful tart fruit flavors, intermingled with bitter organic and vegetable notes. The sourness is beautiful. Very nice.

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.

hezron (610) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Bottle at GTMW. Aroma is much like their others, what I would call "celery." This time it has more of a rich, caramel malty undertone. Orangish-brown in color without much of a head. Great sour/tart caramel with that celery twist. Some peppery spice notes. Light body, creamy texture and a dry finish.
