4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Blend 3, 2009
Tasted on 9/8/13 from a capped 750mL bottle purchased at Lush West Town a couple years back. Pours hazy dark amber with a very thick tan head that slowly recedes to just thicker than average lace. The nose is nicely tart with wine vinegar, brown sugar, orange peel, and a touch of baking spice. The flavor is not quite as sour as expected, but nicely tart with the same brown sugar, orange peel, baking spice, and just a light touch of pleasant bitterness. The body is medium with a tannic texture, average, but stinging carbonation, and a long tart and lightly bitter spiced finish.

9th July 2016: on-tap in the NaparBCN Brewpub with the RBESG guys. Another American beer a long way from home, found in Barcelona. Off-white head on an autumnal orange body. Fruity nose with sour pointers, taste had a bit of spiciness within the semi-sour fruity flavours. Liked it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Mikkeller & Friends, march 26th 2016. Amber body with a small white head. Aroma of curned malt, lactic, with old oranges and cardamom. Taste is sour, not as intense as many JPís, probably partly due to a sweet chocolate and caramel note, with fruity esters. Sharp bretty finish. A bit different from many sours, though itís no doubting itís a Jolly Pumpkin.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2016 Tap during RBESG16. Hazy reddish light brown. Plastic, sour overripe fruit, glue, bitter leaves and spices. Under medium sour and bitter, light sweet. Medium bodied. 3.2
Update: Tap at Jolly Pumpkin Detroit. Still a bit of weird plastic spices, cinnamon, lemon. It seems better now, but still the spices and sourness donít really mix.
