Hazy dark ruby in color with an big tan head great lacy as well. Aroma of dark caramel dark fruit, with an underlaying essence of sour green apple. Flavor is of caramel, raisins, plum, spice, typical Jolly Pumpkin funkiness that I enjoy. Finish is sour/tart long. Great beer and thankfully as of this review date I still have 5 bottles.

AmEricanbrew (6181) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Bottle blend 4, 2007. Hazy garnet with a frothy light tan head. JP house funk/wood aroma with dry hay, lemon, and dark caramel. Frothy mouthfeel with a light to medium body. Good flavors of seered dark caramel, sour oak, and tart lemon; the oak blends nicely with the funk and alcohol. Has a dry yeasty oak finish. Good choice for a winter brew.

BOLTZ7555 (2935) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Much darker than expected with bright aromas of citrus and Granny Smith apple. Minimal oak influence...with the majority of flavors reminiscent of the typical sour (lemon rind, barnyard funk, and a huge Brett focus). A bit thin compared to others in the style. Tasty but not exceptional.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Blend 3 from southbay. Dark brown pour with thick tan head and thick lace. Tart fruit with a touch of spice. It is the perfect amount of spice blended well with the oak

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 5, 2008
The aroma was full of dark fruit, allspice, a little nutmeg and light roast. The beer poured a thick cloudy brown color with very thick lasting head and light lace. The flavor was fruity, allspice, light clove, nutmeg, and plums. The mouthfeel was medium to full bodied with a lot of carbonation.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 3, 2008
ughh...im tired of JP"s beers...deep chesnut body/brownish red with minimal head..aroma is, as usual, much more pronounced and enjoyable that the flavor..very flemish-like, with hints of vinegar, raspberry, sour funk and must...oaky flavor with unpleasant hints of wet socks..like you are harboring a damp basement in your mouth...somewhat offensive..stone, slate, chalk...who wants that? I am starting to wonder why this brewery is so well-regarded...

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of FlacoAlto. Clear amber golden with a dense and lively lacing beige head. Tart Brettish aroma. Medium body, a little low in carbonation. Fruit and woody accents but also an astringet phenolic finish, that isn’t overly pleasant. 190608
