Nephilium (1495) - 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.

Lukasmh (548) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours all haze orange with huge frothy off-white head. Aroma is super funky, brett, yeast, dry oak, candy, citrusy, mandarin, tang, apricots, vanilla, spices, slight tart wheat, slight krydder-snaps, deep honey. Taste has sweet apricots, citrusy, mandarin, tang, slight tangy, fresh cherries. Candied citrus fruits. Slight sweet oaky vanilla. Super dry brett and oaky finish. Spicy fee, and slight bitterl. Smooth body, avergage carbonation. Really complex and yet so crisp! More funk as it warms.

Bottle. It poured a cloudy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of fruits, yeast and spices. The taste was similar to the aroma with more fruit, funk, spices and bread. Good stuff.

Opaque amber, very strong white head. Belgian yeastiness, hop and coriander nose. Medium bodied, balanced bitter, sweet an light sourness. Finishes sour and dry. Very nice.

Good but a little flat. May be due to getting last beer in the keg. Still pretty tasty.

gyllenbock (5796) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle from Bierkompass, bought in March 2015. Clear amber with a medium white head. On the sweet side with brett, citrus, light pepper and some apples. The finish was a bit bitter. A refreshing and easy to drink one.

@ Gyllenbock 15-6-6: en ganska trevlig lite brettig doft. Smaken är trevlig av diskret äpple och en mycket diskret brettighet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Iphonephan (4437) - McLean, Virginia, USA - MAY 15, 2015
From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Opened an absolute gusher. When the massive head finally died down the beer was a cloudy gold with a slightly funky nose. Flavors of coriander and spices. Bitter finish.

Franckg (463) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2015
Gros col de mousse long à dissiper. Les premières gorgées sont beaucoup trop effervescentes. On a de la difficulté à goûter tellement la langue nous pique. Le liquide est en général très fade. Léger gout fruité, un peu de levures épicées... Buvable mais décevante.
