3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light brown with a foamy white head. Aroma is a spice that stands out with a sharp bite and lactic acid. Flavor is tart lactic acid and that same spice. The tartness has a bit of a bite to it, or maybe that’s the spices used. Pretty good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich golden orange pour with foamy white head that leaves very artistic lacing. Nose is that wonderful sour brett with some nutty notes. Flavor is tart sour, like pear or apple skins, with a drying tannic quality. Good earth and nut flavors too. Just washes beautifully around the mouth and finishes tart, acidic and drying. Another great beer from JP.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is light sour, funk, skins. Appearance is amber golden, off white head. Taste is lightly sour, malt, bitter from hops (possibly) not much else. Mouthfeel is medium body and crisp carbonation. Overall, not real impressive for my first Jolly Pumpkin.
