750 ml bottle @ RIP camp.
Pours a dark copper colour with a white head. Aroma of tart berries, grains, citrus and some weak wort-like notes. Flavour of caramel malts, tart berries, citrus, mild floral bitterness, hay and gooseberry bush. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a tart berryish finish. Classic Jolly Pumpkin -style Belgian Ale, but this one has some unpleasant raw wort-like notes.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 750ml bottle into my wee 4oz sampler mug at World Expo of Beer in Frankenmuth, Michigan.
Appearance: Poured as smoothly as possibly, eliminating any head that may have come up otherwise. A red, cinnamon color. Very attractive.
Smell: Hey, speaking of cinnamon ... a spicy cinnamon sort of nose. Sort of fruity.
Taste: My first of the style, and... interesting. Cinnamon, fruit, sour, tart, sweet... itís all over the place and should be a mess, but it isnít. Iíve not had a beer like this before, and Iím glad to finally have gotten the chance to try some Jolly Pumpkin. Itís a good beer that Iíd buy in 12oz bottles, but I wouldnít ever see myself buying a 750ml.

Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a cloudy orange with a large off white head. Funky nose with hints of musty yeast, light spices, and cider vinegar. Tart from start to finish with lots of yeast, cellar character, earthy nuttiness, and subtle spice all in a light body with plenty of carbonation. Delicious.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is hazy copper with a medium ivory head. Nose is spicy with notes of dark fruits and sweet malts. Very Belgian in smell. Taste is sour with hints of dark cherry and plum. Not sure but makes me think Brett may have been in the aging barrels. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall this is a lovely beer. Like the sour notes and the tastes certainly scream of fall
