I spy with my little eye a nice hazy golden ale. She has a great white head, not too frothy though, and with very little lace. She smells of yeast and musty lemon, with a little bit of hops spice. Her flavor was quite a surprise, Tart with candied lemon, pepper, coriander, and a bit of apple, pear, mango, peach, pomegranate, and other juicy fruit flavors. She makes a very clean get away. This was my first Jolly Pumpkin brew. I was pleasantly surprised. This is a great interpretation of a Belgian farmhouse brew. I picked the bottle up at John’s Grocery in Iowa City. If you dig funky tart candy shit, give this a try. I dug it.

A nice beer with good characteristics, but not a great deal of depth. Nice color, but a fairly thin head. Good nose and flavor.
