Light orange color with big white head. Funky citrus and yeast aroma. Taste is pungent up front and mellows out to a smooth, slightly bitter swallow. The power of the aromas and tastes at first are a little offsetting but interesting for a beer.

(big thanks to bbb63 for the hookup on this.)cloudy orange with a thick off-white head.the head sits around for many moments after the pour.as it sits it leaves thick webbing on the glass.the aroma mixes up citrus,funk,coriander,and caramel malts.flavor is a mix of the aroma.plus some seltzer water,salt,and maybe a bit of pear.not as fizzy and light in the palate as the reserve.pretty nice stuff.

Grapefruit, orange peel, noble hops and more citrus fruits in the aroma. The body is a golden brown color toped by a fluffy white head. Lightly sweet bread like malts are accompanied by corriander and black peppercorns. Soft mouthfeel. Nice stuff.

Pours a slighty murky medium aber color, with a light tan almost white head. Cascading bubbles are cool. THe smell is of a light Belgian, not over powering but noticable. Up front it smells like cirtisy(sp?), this may be the first time I actually smelled apple. Very tart taste to it, but not over powering. A little over carbonated IMO. Really fizzy at the begining, finishing dry. THis is a very good brew, just a few things keeping it from being great.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 6, 2007
750mL bottle. Murky golden orange with a massive rocky white head. Perfumey spice, earthy floral hops, and bretty phenols in the aroma. Slight citrus-tinged maltiness with peppery spice. Floral tones emerge with a tart character midpalate. Residual tartness in the finish with a large yeasty component and citrus rind. Mouthfeel is a light medium, somewhat dry.

From a 750 ml. capped bottle with a blurb along the right side of label, poured carefully to leave the yeast in the bottom of the bottle. Poured a bright reddish orange with a fluffy, foamy head, decent retention. Aromas of earthy, musty yeast, coriander, spices, tart fruitiness, and sweet pale maltiness. Good active carbonation and a crisp, dry, tart, velvety carbonated smooth light bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant sour, tart taste, orange, lemon and pears, coriander, grains of paradise, a white peppery spiciness, a little candied sugariness that adds a subtle sweetness, herbal, the hops have a light bitterness, a flash of alcohol towards the end, and a dry malty, yeasty finish. Another well made ale from Jolly Pumpkin, well worth trying.

Pours orange with a tall cream colored head that is very thick. Sweet nose with a earthy spice to it, light straw character, orange peel, and soft hops. Very high carbonation really brings the beer to life strengthening the spices. The lemony sourness builds in the finish blending well with the spiciness of the yeast strain. Dry and oaky flavor up front that gets balanced against the sourness.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JAN 28, 2007
Hazy orange-gold pour with a nice dense and lasting white head and good lacing. Lots of sour lemon, grapefruit, and orange aroma with hints of spice. Loads of funk and citrus in the flavor with a very light and delicate malt and candi sugar balance, dry an lightly piny on the finish. Medium body, lively carbonation, and dry champagne like finish.

High carbonation, great funky aroma. The flavor and aroma are much the same as the other Jolly Pumpkins. Good beer, maltier than the Otono.
