4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from CBX. Deep hazy amber pour with a large frothy white head with thick sheets of lacing. Funky, musty,oak yeasty aroma, tangy citrus along with hints of spices, flowers and a very light sweetness. Citrus, oak, yeast funkiness and lactic acid. Relatively smooth body and lower carbonation for JP beers. Very tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at pita kabob in Visalia. Warming spice aroma with distant autumn vegetable. Beautiful late sunset deep orange with moderate white head that quickly dissipates to a bubbly white collar. Taste is orange and kumquat with slight persimmon. Thin mouthfeel surprises with a spike of spice in the mid palate. Altogether interesting if not outstanding.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very unique beer. Pours a cloudy golden color. Smells of apple and cinnamon. Taste is very different, almost like a sour Flemish ale or a cider. Like green apples. Had in the bottle, batch 902.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaque hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of apricot and peach, flavor of caramel and bubblegum. Smooth mouthfeel. Pretty good, but not my favorite JP beer...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium amber body with a... hey, whatís that smell? A strong aroma of mint? Also gentle bretty hints. Lots of mint in the flavours as well, this is like drinking a mint bubblegum. Also herbs and a gentle wildness. A fun thing with the mint, but itís just a bit too much for me.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2007 bottle. Nice golden-orange color with a pleasant, oaky aroma that features some pleasant sourness, spices, and citrus. Flavor has a nice citrus bite with a bit of bretty sourness that is well balanced with gentle spices, oak, and assorted fruits. Nice mouthfeel. This is a classic example of why JP rules!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Batch 244,245) The aroma starts with the standard tart funk of almost all of Jolly Pumpkin’s beers. Underneath that, there are hints of nuts, and a touch of chocolate. Pours a clear amber, with a huge rocky white head. The taste is a peppery, nutty ale, crisp on the palate with a slight bit of tartness to it. Very tasty, and works quite well even in summer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer is all over the place. Copper color with a small bubble white head. Aroma is tart, bret funk, woody oak, some fruit. Flavor is rich and complex...huge profile. Well balanced and very interesting.
