stevencon (446) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2014
Bottle to chalice. Muddy red with white head and some lacing. Vinegar souring with dirt, wood, red fruit. Very solid representative of the style. Hints of oxidation. Good carbonation soft on the palate. I’ll drink more of this for sure.

TXBadger (1385) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2014
Pours a red rubyish color with white head. Sour candy on the aroma, follows through onto the palate. Some wood on the palate as well. Sour, but just a little spice seems to add a little balance to it.

Mora2000 (5695) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Red pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong cherry notes as well as some brett and a bit of biscuit malt. The flavor is more of the same. I get some tart cherry notes as well as some biscuit malt and a hint of brown sugar. There is also some brett and some light funk notes, as well as some tannic oak character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice sour.

tomekk1978 (468) - POLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Barwa: miedziana, mętna. Piana biała, niewielka, drobno pęcherzykowa, szybko zanikająca. Wysycenie niewielkie. Aromat: dziki, kwaśny, estrowy (wiśnie, porzeczki ?), ale niezbyt intensywny. Lekko drewniany pochodzący zapewne z beczki. Smak: kwaśny, ale z wytrawną kontrą i nieco drewniany pozostający na końcu. Mimo wszystko zbalansowany. Pierwsze piwo z browaru Jolly Pumpkin, które miałem okazję próbować. Było wielokrotnie nagradzane i pozostaje w czołówce rankingów internetowych. Jak dla mnie nie prezentuje się jednak wcale lepiej niż rodzimy Artezan Chateau, który choć również drogi to wydaje się ciekawszy zarówno pod względem smaku, jak i aromatu. Etykieta z pirackim kotem jest interesująca, ale to za mało żeby płacić aż taką kwotę. Niestety...

750 ml bottle; Blend 13 Bottled 5-24-2013. Clear red copper, tan foam fades and rings. Light sour fruity aroma. Taste is tart and fruity, some faint funk and mild malts. Softer carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. Nice clean quencher. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)
