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.

Pours with that unfiltered hazy pale yellow look like most white ales....whoa, a big pillowy white head formed. Aroma is all about spiciness with some yeast and hops to boot. Flavor is more of the same with a tinge of coriander and orange zest. A lingering bitterness accompanies the nice maltiness too. Fuller than expected mouthfeel. A very nice white ale.

750ml bottle.
This is the best witbier Iíve had yet, though it defeats Lake Louie Prairie Moon for that title by a technicality: Prairie Moon is called a "farmhous ale" by the brewery and classified here as a saison even though it has all the characteristics of a witbier: light straw color, unfiltered yeast haze, coriander and orange peel. But I digress -- back to the Jolly Pumpkin.<P> Hazy light straw-colored pour with a huge fluffy white head that grudgingly agrees to settle down to half an inch where it remains in perpetuity or until you drink the last drop, whichever comes first. Spectacular witbier aroma -- spicy hops, coriander, citrus/orange peel, and more spicy hops. Coriander takes center stage in the flavor, suppored by that big hop spice, light hop bitterness, orange peel, and light sugary malt. Medium body (actually a bit heavy for the style), fizzy palate with a long citrus aftertaste. Quite a remarkable witbier. This is one Iíll buy again and again.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2005
Hazy amber body beneath a fizzy white head. The aroma is tart, lemon and orange zest, a little hot spice, ginger, clove, malt and yeast. Light/medium body with lively carbonation and a creamy feel. The flavor was semi-sweet, cirtus tart, spicy. Not bad.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Nice combination of spicey refreshment and tart appetizing zest. Orange peel is prominent with some Lactic and Pedio. hints. Soft mouthfeel that is round and full. Slightly hoppy and effervescent finish. Very nice beer that is more than just a white ale. Had at celebrator tasting.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Pours a very nice hazy yellow with a creamy white head. Aromas of coriander, oranges and some sugar rise from the grass with bananas and oak in the wake. Taste is not as grand, unfortunately but still pleasant with nice coriander and citrus elements. Finish is on the light end, but overall this would make an excellent session beer in the summer.

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2005
pours out a hazy yellow with bubbly head. Aroma of yeast, light fruit, corriander. Flavor incorporates the wood, as well as the orange peel and mix em together to make up a nice refreshing tasting witbier.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2005
Hazy,golden with a big,fluffy,head that settles. Aroma is large on the coriander,but the malt,cookie,and spicy,yeast presence is there as well. Body is substantial,and moderately,carbonated. Flavors of the wood,yeast,malt are all well integrated,and the hops balance in with these perfectly. The finish is my favorite part of the beer,starting spicy,and hoppy,but with a lingering,dough,malt flavor.A fav in a style I usually donít care for.

Kevin (2098) - New Mexico, USA - OCT 17, 2005
cloudy infected looking dark yellow pour with a lasting white head. aroma is pound cake with a moonshine taste. biting earthy flavor with vanilla, biting lemon zest. finish is sour. wheatyness does not hold this together. lingering tinfoil finish that reminds me of bad bananas and zinc. thanks for sharing this fly.
