COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Firefly, an artisan pale ale brewed in the Grand Cru tradition. Enjoy its golden effervescence and gentle hop aroma. Coriander and Grains of Paradise round out the spicy palate, melting o so softly into a silken finish of hoppiness and bliss! Make any season a celebration!

Cask, Spuyten Duyvil. Pours a hazy amber with a thin lasting head and almost no carbonation. Aroma is very complex with lots of brett (either infected or just came from an oak cask.) either way it was fantastic. Had a slight acidic and tart aroma, some lemon zest and citrus in the aroma as well. Flavor is very smooth and mellow with a great complexity of fruits, caramel malts, citrus, lemon, spices, and a nice slight lactic and brett finish. I think this was a lot better on cask, although I dont remember how I liked this in bottle.

(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy orange body with a large beige head. Aroma of orange, pepper, florals, lemon, and herbs. Flavor of bacteria strains, citrus, coriander, herbs, and malt. Another fabulous beer from Jolly Pumpkin!

BigNasty (55) - South Lyon, Michigan, USA - JAN 30, 2006
In a word, awesome! Pours with a massive head which settles slowly. Hoppy, spicy aroma. Not to steal from the commercial description, but definitely a silky mouthfeel with a massive (but not vegetal) hop flavor. Reminds me of some of the best homebrewed pale ales I’ve tried. If Jolly Pumpkin ever stops brewing this, I’ll probably cry myself to sleep for days!

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2006
Foamy off-white head, unclear orange body. Extremly fruity in the aroma with a sharp spicyness of white pepper and other and a note of yeast. Reminds me somewhat of a De Dolle brew, which is a positive thing! Yeasty and fruity flavor with a nice dry spicyness, tones of vanilla. A nice beer from a good brewery!

imzugzug (103) - Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2006
Clouds reddish coper color with a nice fluffy head. Sour fruits and hops in the aroma. Very spicy fruity flavored highly carbonated beer. A little more bitter in the finish than I would have lided. Overall not bad, just not my style. Worth the purchase price for the stunning label art work!
