gvmdw7 (188) - California, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Poured pale orange with a ton of carbonation. It was almost Chanpagne like. Smells of citrus and the acidic tones of cider. Has a distinct lemon flavor. The hops aren’t very noticeable except a little bitterness. Very refreshing beer with the carbonation. The bottle was a year and a half old so the flavor profile of a new batch would probably be significantly different.

Grzesiek79 (4000) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 14, 2016
Grand Cru Classe. To prawda. Piwo kwaskowe, wytrawne i zlozone. Szampanskie wysycenie, piana wielka i trwala, wystrzelil kapsel i przy tym z polowa piwa tak wiec za bardzo musujące. Ale wspaniale w smaku cos miedzy lambickiem a lekkim belgijskim Blond Ale. Aromat stajni, w smaku kwas z kapusty kwaszonej, cytryny i limonki, do tego tarta jablkowa, kwaskowe jabłka granny smith. Jasne jaskrawe i bardzo mętne. Posmak drewna i wytrawnego wina gronowego pozostawia. Klasa niesamowita tego piwa. Niemal perfekcyjne piwo. Blisko mu do spontanicznej fermentacji i dzikich drozdzy, przypominalo w każdym aspekcie najlepsze belgijskie Oude Gueuze.

scirtes (431) - POLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle. Pours amber, hazy, with large off-white head with perfect lacing. Aromas of fruits (apricots, grapes), some phenolic, spicy notes, and woody, a bit funky notes as well. Taste is lightly sweet, with subtle sourness. Medium bodied, lively carbonated, with somewhat woody, tannic aftertaste. Nice and complex, a bit saison-like.

Gold, with a white head. Sour apple aroma and taste, with a drying biscuity finish that seems to include Brett. Thanks, Dan! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PanMarek (241) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Mild resiney hop nose with a touch of spice. Cloudy, slightly dark golden pour. It tastes of coriander / pepper at the outset and finishes with the piney hops. Moderately dry at the end. Smooth mouthfeel with slight bitter coarseness around the edges. RateBeer calls it a Belgian Ale, but it tastes to me more like a dry, yeasty pale ale.

tightslice (958) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 28, 2016
On tap at Redlight in Orlando, FL. Aroma is especially fruity and floral without being nauseous, obnoxious or noxious. Getting dry wood, minerals, lightly spiced fruits. Silky and dry. Jolly Pumpkin can do no wrong.
