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

Bottle. Blend #5. Almost a year old now. Aroma is tart fruit, nuts, oak, and funk. Appearance is a dark, cloudy orange with a thin white head. Taste is nuts, soft caramel, spice, oak, and moderately sour. Medium body with light carbonation. Overall another great jp.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2007 Wow ... I got this as a cask pull at "Buckeye Beer Engine" in Lakewood, Ohio. This was infinitely more interesting as it was around 55 degrees and the head was substantially different than anything I have had before. It was like a soft whipped cream instead of the other Jolly’s that are effervescent and sticky. The slightly hazy completion was nice and it was slightly more sour than their Bam. High on my list, especially if you can get it off a cask pull. Amended 11/3/07: had a taste of the regular draft today, very different texture. More sour than the cask and significantly more effervescent. Chestnut still present but more muted than the cask, probably a function of temperature.

750 ml bottle at Logans Alley. Wonderful amount of pleasant sourness with a nice hint of cinnamon and chestnuts. Delicious anytime of the year.

Poured dark orange. Sour, yeasty aroma. Light-medium body, very dry mouthfeel. Funky palate, almost gueze-like. Cherry undertones, agressive yeast throughout. Dry finish. Very drinkable ale...

Smell of spice and leaves. Pours a foggy tan. Taste is sour and tart spice. Little hints of caramel and chestnuts. Not overpowering. Moderate change of pace. Worth a taste.
