COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An artisan white ale brewed in the classic biere blanche tradition. Spiced with orange peel and coriander, you'll find it refreshingly tart, with a wonderful dry finish.

Very nice beer by JP: basically a brettened up white beer. Pours gorgeous clear hazy yellow with a nice white head. Mouthfeel is big carbonation, medium bodied; very dry. Taste is wheat, banana, lemon cest, a bit of barnyard funk, It’s a really nice, easy to drink beer.

On tap at Bigalora in Ann Arbor. Very smooth, but wish there was more of a bite. Not much on the nose. Pours a very light and clear orange. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Blonde trouble ayant une mousse sans grandes ambitions. Un nez propre au style, mais de façon plutôt faible. Des effluves d’agrumes et des épices quelconques semblent être tout ce qui en émanent. Un goût qui se construit autour du zeste de citron avec de la coriandre et des pointes poivrées qui nous saisit un peu en bouche. Un côté suret sur les bords et aussi minéral. Plutôt aqueuse. Rafraîchissante, comme un Perrier au citron. Je reste sur ma faim. Est-elle trop vieille? (926-171213)

Batch 913. Bottled 10-10-2011. Rated 12-21-13. Aged 2+ years. Nice artwork. Pours an effervescent golden. Large fluffy, frothy white head, lasting. Big beautiful aroma. Yeasty, bretty, orange, citrus, coriander, some basement and old damp wood/light barnyard. Comfortable sourness, some citrus fruitiness, pleasant dryness. Soft, lighter medium body. The aged took most of the edge off the spices but are still present. Lots of yeast character and plenty of lemony like citrus. I liked this better than most of the other JP beers, although they all seem very similar, this one stands out a little more.

Aged 2+ years. Very yeasty, creamy, citrus aroma. Coriander, spices. Taste is similar, very smooth, a little tart, lots of orange, citrus, and spices. Smooth but complex. A little dry at the finish, yes, but just barely.

Bottle at the parentals with my dad. Pour is hazy yellow with a big white head and great lacing. Funky, tangy, citrusy, lemony, peppery, biscuity, urine, grassy, biscuity, and honey in the aroma. Taste is spritzy, tart lemons, doughy, biscuity, white pepper, wheaty, basil, and citrus with a tangy tart finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Really easy drinking, perfect for summer.

Bottle 750. Straw color, hazy but consistent all the way through. Smells of yeast, orange pith, ever so lightly spiced with coriander. Super light bodied, carbonation is fluffy which takes away some of the body. Taste is light, clean dry finish. Perfectly sessionable. Pair with a summer salad.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Tom C’s place. Cloudy golden with a big white head. Aroma is wheaty and spicy, a bit lemony, with great barnyard funk. Flavor is wheaty, sourish, and citric with bready notes, light sweetness, fruitiness and mild spiciness. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation. Really nice and refreshing.

Another solid beer from Jolly Pumpkin. Would like to have this one again. Mostly all Jolly Pumpkins I like to get again often.
