My taste or the brewers attention has sure changed over these 3 and a half years. I got a hazy, dark orange beer, small white head. Citric and spritzy aromas, with notes of coriander and orange peel too. Gets more intense as the beer warms, more spicy and yeasted. Very nice, full barleyed mouthfeel, but the real hit is the fabouless finish. Superb combo of peppercorns, vanilla, esters, alcohol and carbonation. A very nice and complex golden ale. Gets one real warm.

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.

Musty yeasty lemon aroma with a peppery note.
