Shared a bottle of this with BeerBaron617. It poured a nice hazy orange/amber/chestnut color with a thick off white foamy head. Doesnít have the super sour aroma that many Jolly Pumpkin beers have. It tasted sour, but not quite as sour as some we have had. The spices in the flavor are quite subtle, and it wasnít very remarkable.

Thanks to footbalm for this one
I had high expectations for this beer and I was disappointed. First of all, I tasted neither chestnuts nor spices. In fact, it tasted simply like a sour beer.

Bottle. Dark amber colour with a big off-white head. Light acid, fruity, citrus, gueuze like aroma and taste. Medium body with a light dry finish.

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. Itís okay but not really my style.

Pretty much tastes like pure brett with a slight hint of chestnuts. Has nice carbonation and a nice mouth feel. I like some Brett beers and a lot of sours; this was not one of them.

Thanks to JohnC for sharing. Mostly just tart malty flavors, was not able to detect any benefit from barrel aging likely due to sourness that overpowered the whole experience.

NorCal tasting July 07 - This is one beer from Jolly Pumpkin that I just couldnít get into. An aroma of ginger and bubblegum, a touch nutty, malty and it brings the obvious funk into everything. Appearance is amber in color with a huge head. Flavors were mostly dominated by the sourness of the beer, but underneath it it carried some caramel-nuttyness to it along with a bit of dark fruity (figs?). Hard to tell due to the Brett.

OK, itís official, Iím not a fan of Jolly Pumpkin beers. The last one was classified as a Sour Ale, and I didnít 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.

Smells floral. Color is golden and cloudy. Light body, light sour touch, spicy. Flavor disappears fast, not a fan of this beer.

Has the definite presence of malts and spices, I can feel the heat the spices on the back of my throat. The head pour outs and just stays there. however the mild sour taste of the beer sorta ruins this for me. not really for me.
