Ok. Pours brown. Typical Jolly Pumpkin yeast. Like a brown with the bretta. Pours brown without much head or lacing. Tap at BRU.

Pours a hazy brown with a foamy white head. Has a tart fruit and cinnamon aroma. Flavor is orange and tart fruit. I don’t really taste the cocoa - perhaps the strong tart flavor masks it. I do enjoy the blend of tart and spice here. Very well done.

Glowing hazy apple juice brown. Big sour apple smells with a light earthyness. Sour taste that is mediated by the cinnamon and cacao nibs. Great dry flavor left over that moisten your mouth.

750ml capped bottle pours a slightly hazy amber brown color with a generous off-white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is orange zest with hints of chocolate and cinnamon. Taste is an orange zesty bitterness with some light fruit and malty sweetness. Medium bodied with ample carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. An interesting brew that is worth sampling.

Blend 3, 2009 bottle from a trade that kept following me around. Light bronze color with a small tan head. Interesting aroma that has some citrus and a little tart funk. The flavor has more Beglian/tart sourness but not over-the-top. I probably waited a little long on this one because some of the chocolate and spice is gone just leaving some mild cocoa.

On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Amber and cloudy appearance with a sticky off-white head. Aroma of cocoa, spices, cinnamon, tart fruit, sour notes and funky yeast. Similar flavor, tart, mildly sour, lightly sweet, pretty complex and fun to drink.

Draft - Caramel and cherry. Cloudy amber with a thin white head. Flemish red goodness that is awesome, why Belgian strong? Cherry and great woody funky notes. Superb.

Ogot this bad boy on sale! I love Jp beers but too expensive for buying on the reg. anyway.
Smell has lots of like Bret sourness. Maybe a little cinnamon. Maybe a little cocoa.
Look is good. Hazy brown with creamy tan head.
Taste has a sour Bret note. Lighter. A dull bitterness maybe some nutmeg. Not picking up so much on the cocoa. Maybe ill pair it with something here.... Hummus!!!!! Definitely softens it up on the palate almost gives it a lemon note. Not really well defined flavors.
Palate is good. Smooth. Bubbly. Flavorful. Some dull note hidden in there.
Overall not a bad beer but not mind blowing. The Belgian wild sour notes are there but nothing really to back them up. I’m not picking up on the cocoa a bit on the cinnamon. I’ll let it get to room temp see why happen. Otherwise I’ve had better from jolly p.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky orange brown color with an off white head and good lacing. Aroma of light fruit and some tartness and cinnamon. Mild tartness in taste with light fruit skin and some toastiness. Some spiciness and very light pepper in finish. Finishes semi dry with mild spice and some graininess. Mouthfeel is crisp with a light/medium body and high carbonation. Easy drinking with good flavor but a little muddled.
