3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium amber body with a... hey, what’s 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 it’s just a bit too much for me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another really cool label from JP with a fairy looking creature holding some sort of puzzle. This is a really bright orange color with a 1cm white head. The smell is funky, spicy, musty, and swampy. A little stinkier than the other Jolly Pumpkin beers I have had. The first taste is grassy, sour, and dry at the end. maybe some tart lemon flavor as it warms.

Excellent orange appearance. Funky smell, herbal. Lemony spritzy flavor with an interesting finish. There is some sour going on but it is faint and enjoyable. Some biscuity malts and then a dry finish iwth sour edges.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2012 Draft. Pours a cloudy golden amber with a large white head. Aroma is medium sour, lots of fruit, and some spice. Flavor is fruit (apricot in particular), spice (nutmeg predominates), caramel, medium sour, some earthy funk. Finely carbonated, great mouthfeel. Strikes me as a biere de garde or maybe a strongly flavored saison. Great beer, great brewery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small white head that fades quickly. The aroma blends a certain level of sourness, nuttiness, Belgian yeast, and a hint of nutmeg. The taste is mildly sour, slightly sweet, and a touch umami, with an aftertaste that is slightly sour with some clove flavor emerging. The palate fuses a lively carbonation, slick texture, and a light body.
