4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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...
