Nephilium (1307) - Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2007
This starts with an aroma of spice, with a certain sourness hiding behind it. It pours an opaque amber, with a thick white head. The flavor is peppery, with a hint of dryness there. Strong presence of spice, with a hint of citrus fruits. Very light palate. I don’t think there’s a Jolly Pumpkin beer that hasn’t impressed me.

Habanero (2431) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2014
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.

AgentAle (579) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 25, 2014
Aroma is tart, lemon grass, clove and slight vinegar. Taste is a tarty bitterness with hints of clove and citrus. Light wine dryness and some earthy funkiness. Appearance i an earthy orange/gold with a fluffy pearl head that retains well.

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

Torrefacto (494) - 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.

beerbaaron (1124) - Arizona, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Bottled 6/14/13. Cloudy light orange golden. Very effervescent. Mammoth frothy fluffy white head. Aroma is very yeasty, moderate citrus. Dusty, cobweb, basement, dry woody, lemon, accompanying light citrus, lightly spiced. Flavor follows. Pretty complex. Just enough sweetness. Awesome balance. Very well put together. Lighter medium body. Dry. A little acidic. Kinda zesty.Mild to moderate grassy/herbal bitterness.

super carbonated and beautiful white head, burnt orange color. Beautiful Belgium aroma, yeasty, citrus, crisp yet smooth and velvety. Super tasty. Smooth, sweet, a little fruity, citrus, orange/lemon, light spices. So delicious and smooth hard to concentrate more on anything particular. Very will put together.

Holy smokes, did I every love this beer. Chestnut brown pout with a thin tan head. Lightly carbonated on tap. Amazing fruity tart nose, with a touch of funk. On tasting, the sour was ramped up a couple of notches - wow! The mouthfeel was slightly sticky, but in this context it worked. I loved it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
