4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home. Hazy yellow, headless. Complex aroma of sour melons, funk, orange creamsicle, wheat, oak, and a faint Brett - like yeasty smell with hints of leather and rubber. Very light and spritzy body, with a creamy wheat texture. Sour and tart, fruity, earthy, funky, with fresh melon flavors, more Bretty notes, and a surprisingly clean, tart, dry finish. Outstanding.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
750ml bottle @Unknown cellar, Riga, thanks. Clear pale yellow color. Fruity, citrus, malty and grainy aroma. Fizzy aroma! Sour and malty base which is flavored with some graininess and citrus. I think it’s off or going off very soon. It tastes old and more acidic sour than it should be. Need to have one fresh.

Looks opaque yellow (the first thing I thought when I poured it was "lemon sherbet"), quick very white head, no lace. Light citrus and wheat on the nose. Tart and bittersweet. Middle is a garden of sour citrus with hints of coriander and verbena. Finish is dry, sour, and brisk. Yum.

Excellent lightly tart witbier, similar to the Anchorage version of the style. Great stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
750 mL from Mile High. This is a very cloudy and light beer with a quickly diminishing white head. The aroma is fantastic, as I would expect from Jolly Pumpkin. It’s pleasantly tart with barnyard funk and sour fruits. Light orange and coriander come through along with wheat and pepper. The palate is light and spritzy, but still has a decent body on account of the wheat. The flavor is complex, refreshing and excellently executed. It’s got a perfect level of tartness to accompany the citrus and spice profile. The finish brings vinous suggestions. This is another top notch offering from JP.

Backlog. 375 ml bottle shared, purchased at The Proper Pour I think. Orange and pretty clear appearance with a fully dissipating head. Aroma of sour notes, orange peel, coriander and wheat malts. Similar flavor, tart, zesty and herbal with a light sour and dry finish. Refreshing and pretty fun to drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Bierkeller. Cloudy yellow pour with almost no head. Aroma is mostly coriander and orange peel. Some grains and flowers too. Very light sourness and tartness in the taste. Really just coriander and oranges for flavor. Maybe some lemon juice too. Solid witbier but this is one of my least favorite styles.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is metallic. Iron. Honey. White wine.
Looks really nice. Hazy pale lighter yellow.
Taste is on point. Just sour enough. Tart. Flavors are subtle and balanced. Oak is there on the finish but not a big player.
Palate is smooth. A little yeasty on the finish. Somewhat dry. Medium body.
Overall this is a really good beer.

Tap at Sunset. Wheaty, bit creamy, light sourness, bit of citrus. Vinous and berries. Bit of yoghurt. Interesting.
