3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A ruddy, brown color with orange highlights and a thick, lasting, rocky, tan head. Aroma is mostly actectobacteria like a flemish red ale with some warm caramel and brady notes. Flavor has definite cooking spices dominating the profile that I did not get in the aroma. The acetic nose takes a backseat in the flavor but balances the beer nicely and there seems to be an earthy hop presence that shows itself on the palate each time you swallow. A few points off for simplicity and lack of unity between the flavor and aroma but I do like the CO2 level on this beer as it is not overdone like many of their offerings. He is definitely locking down on some solid stuff.

A delightful beverage. I enjoy a mixture of the sour/wild ale & the Belgium style ale. This brew will affect your palate slightly. The appearance was wonderful. Overall it is better than the average beer beverage and I would enjoy having this again.

Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Tart fruity aroma with some barnyard notes. Tart flavor with citrus and tropical fruit notes. Light body with a grainy mouthfeel and a high level of carbonation.

OK, it’s official, I’m not a fan of Jolly Pumpkin beers. The last one was classified as a Sour Ale, and I didn’t like it. This one is classified as a Belgian, and it tasted again like a Sour Ale. 750ml bottle, poured a nice clear amber with a foamy off-white head. Very nice looking beer. Aroma was of tart, sour apple. Taste was tart, sour, and biting. Poured this one down the drain.

750ml bottle poured into a shaker. This beer pours orange-yellow and murky with a large creamy head. The aroma is tart and fruity. This is a pretty sour beer but it has a saison feel to it. It’s okay but not really my style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Si presenta come una meraviglia: ambrata con un bello e fitto cappello di schiuma. Aroma di caramello, legno, spezie con una leggera acidità. Al palato ingresso dolce speziato poi evolve decisamente in maniera acida ma senza eccesso. L’acido è accompagnato poi dal sentore "farinoso" e classico delle castagne. Finale leggermente luppolato. Un’altra ottima birra di Jolly Pumpkin.

Pours golden amber with thick rocky head... aroma of brett, malts and floral notes. Flavor is brett... nice sourness but not overwhelming... smooth. Nuttiness at finish. Very nice.
