3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled in 2011. I believe I got this one in Lake Tahoe. Aroma and flavor is bing cherry and sour brown all the way. Good carb out of the bottle dissipates into zero head and lacing. Some nice funk here, not a ton, but still present. Other thing is a bitter note in the middle. Could be that I held this one too long. Still, very good sour.

I am continually disappointed by Jolly Pumpkin. But this brew was pretty good. Iím not very familiar with the style but standing alone I liked it.

Pours a red copper color with white head. Aromas of tart fruits and yeasty funks. Flavors of spice, sour fruits, and brett. This was descent, but not exceptional.

Another winner from Jolly Pumpkin. Bottle split with my brother. Aroma is tart barnyard and cranberry. Pours light apple red with lots of bubbles and a quick but medium-large head. Taste is fresh cranberry, apple skin, barnyard, and slight caramel. Very light on all the tastes but a great taste it is. Easy to sip and enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful reddish-brown with nice head retention. Unfortunately, this fell short of expectations. Smell is typical of a Flanders Red but a bit weak. Taste is much the same. Gets better as it warms but there are many better sours out there. I wanted more kick, more character or something. Overall, I found this one decent but a bit thin and lacking a solid finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled July 2013. Pours a rusty orange with no head or lacing. Looks like a wine and not a beer. Aroma of tart fruit, like cherry. Thin mouthfeel, slightly sour. Does not remind me of a beer. It's like a watered down Cabernet/Zinfandel Not my thing.....I may wash it down with a Ten Fidy to remind me again of what beer is like.

A very drinkable JP effort. A real quality tartness and follows up with the nice funk patented by Jolly Pumpkin.
