Strykzone (4826) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Pint at Global Brew O’Fallon. $10 for the beer. This had a nice frothy shaving cream foam. A sweet fruity and slightly funky aroma. The first sip is brett and it is only slightly funky, somehow. The brett is very clean here but finished plastic like. Some spiciness with nice fruit and sweetness and that coriander does nice things here. This is nice and interesting.

rbrazell (1589) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle from CBX. Hazy deep golden pour with a large rocky white head that stick arounds. Funky yeast aroma, barnyard, wheat, lemons and grapefruit, spices, herbs and a hint of hops. Enter with a light pale malt sweetness fading in yeast funkiness, lemons and citrus, and then a big herbal spice drying out the back end. Layered palate depth with lively carbonation. Good stuff.

Bottled. Pours clear, pale amber with a small, off-white head. Aroma of funk, brett notes, grass, citrus notes, coriander and caramel. Slightly sweet flavor tat ends up dry, tart and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and lively carb. A very nice and crisp Belgian style ale.

Earthy and fruity. Nice rich grain notes with some Belgian funk. Darker color and flavor than some of the others in my sampler.

Torrefacto (516) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 6, 2014
Color caoba, espuma color crema densa. Aromas afrutados de fruta madura, naranja y levadura. En boca tiene un cuerpo medio-bajo,algo aguado, bien carbonatado que comienza con un sabor afrutado, dulce con un toque ácido, algo cítrico, cilantro y un final seco pero suave. No responde a ningún estilo concreto, apunta a belga pero con gran presencia de lúpulos afrutados. Buena.

Pours a cloudy amber color with white head. Spice, coriander, tartness, and some hop citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes tart and dry.

750ml bottle. Pours a cloudy amber color with a fluffy white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice overall bretty character, JP funk, oak, lemony citrus, vanilla, vinous notes and subtle coriander. Nice dry finish with a creamy mouthfeel. Another solid beer from Jolly Pumpkin.
