Glowing hazy pink peach. Cherry sour scents. Crisp sour start that turns to a slowly fading spiced finish. Flavors to guide you from summer to winter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Blend #6, Bottled 10/10/12, 25.4 oz Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a finger of fine off-white head. Decent retention with some lacing. Aroma is moderately funky, barnyard, tangy, spicy. Flavor is moderately sour up front and builds slightly, fades into herbal, vegetal, and spicy finish. Mild bitter that lingers. Moderate carbonation, less than many sours, and a light, crisp body. Slightly tart, oily, finish. Not a very traditional belgian ale, it is more herbal like a sour saison. Regardless, it is an excellent, tasty, refreshing beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bouteille de 750 ml. Arômes typiques du funk de Jolly Pumpkin, très porté sur les brettanomyces. Robe blonde foncée et trouble, légère dentelle et effervescence assez active. En bouche, le caractère des brettanomyces de Jolly Pumpkin est également à l’avant-plan, créant une impression de pulpe d’orange et de pamplemousse blanc. Légère présence épicée (cannelle ?). Finale très sèche montrant une belle acidité rappelant les agrumes. Toujours agréable.

An explosion of sour citrus in your mouth. Bottled in October, it would have aged beautifully for many years.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy yellow gold pour with a big rocky white head. The aroma has the same sour apple right upfront that I get from all JP beers. There’s also some various hints of spice, chestnut, coriander, lemon and orange zest, and some pepper. Mouth puckering sourness hits the taste buds first and then fades to grassy, floral hops, soft caramel and biscuit, some ripe fruits, damp oak, citrus, and apple cider vinegar. Dry medium body with lots of carbonation. Im really a little amazed at how delicate the numerous flavors are in this and yet the sourness is still quite strong.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Murky medium brown with a mist of white haze on top. Very soft carbonation, creamy viscous mouthfeel, effervescent finish. Fruity but indistinct sweet tart aroma. Floral taste, a bit of fine wheat, hint of red wine tannin and lager yeast. Crisp and refreshing, more for summer for me than fall.
