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.

I forgot to rate this one. Poured a darker amber with a minimal white head. Aroma was sweet yeast and spice...loads of fresh citrus and mellon. Aroma was spicey and tart...typical jolly pumpkin. Mouthfeel is fantastic.

Classic JP profile. Pours deep orange, with an amber hue. Sour orange citrus, red fruit, spice, saline and JP yeast notes on the nose. On the palate, subtle, complex flavors intermingle with each sip. Layers of sour orange citrus, red fruit and saline, combine with nuances of herbs, JP yeast, savory chestnut, spice, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Wonderful texture, carbonation and weight on the palate... Super easy to drink! Mouthwatering and refreshing, with a dry finish. Balanced!! Glad I picked this up.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange/gold with typical billowy head. Aroma is unmistakenly brett and funky. Probably the most in any Jolly Pumpkin Iíve tried. Slight nuttiness in the taste to go along with the funk, pepper, and brett. Somewhat prickly on the palate and goes down yeasty and slightly tart.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy copper/orange color with a frothy two finger head that settles very slowly to a thick cap that sticks around for the entire beer. The lacing thatís left behind is thick, and covers most of the inside of my glass.
Smell; there are some definite tart and sour aromas present. Once you get past those a little fruitiness comes out with apples, lemons and hints of oranges. Itís a bit on the funky side with some interesting barnyard aromas, with some cinnamon and other spices mixed in with an oak barrel presence in there as well.
Taste; itís definitely on the tart side, but itís in no way overwhelming. Caramel and cinnamon blend well with the apple flavors, with an interesting lemon twist mixed on with them. The barnyard funk and oak barrel flavors round out the beer very nicely. I wasnít sure the flavor would live up to the smell, but it definitely has, with all of the flavors smoothly flowing into the next. Mouthfeel is on the full side with a lively but smooth carbonation. The only real problem I have with this beer, is that I only had one of them.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
75cL, batch 244,245. Pours a drop dead gorgeous deep golden orange with dense stark white foam, phenomenal lacing and retention. Aroma is at first a little wild with some sharp acidic notes, then some nice nutty malt notes appear and just a little hint of pear skins in there also. Flavor follow the aromas line of attack, big and bretty from the start with a beautiful slightly nutty malt intermission followed by a some sharp fruit skin bitterness to finish it all off. Easily the most enjoyable and drinkable JP Iíve had and thatís no knock against their lineup, this was a damn fine beer!
