Wonderful nose, lots of sweet cookie dough, big notes of coconut, with a light and gentle maltyness. Light hazy golden body with a medium sized white head. Mlaty flavor, very bready, little yeast flavor, ends on a nice and pleasant hop note. The best Biere de Garde ive had i think.

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

Cloudy, with good head,yeasty, lace. Well carbonated though somewhat prickly on tongue. Drying. Understated spice taste - Its clearly there, but its Not as bold a spice taste as Jenlain. Not complaining, its a creamy and easy drink. It’s a good one and a fine brewery.

White pepper and lemon grass nose with a touch of white wine. Wonderful rich mouthfeel with a touch of belgian trople to it. White fruits and nuts abound in the nose and dance on the palate. Clean, soft and mildly lactic finish make for a great beer.

Nice fruity, mild aroma. The beer was a light golden hazy color with a small creamy white head. The flavor was mild at first and as I continued to drink it, the fruitiness and spices came out more. It was very easy to drink. Highly carbonated, light as it is going down,

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Barley’s Alehouse #2 - Pours hazy golden with a short white head that fades quick. Aroma of lemon, yeast, and sweet tarts. Flavor is quite sharp, tart, citrus, sour, yeast, bread, and some spice. Mouthfeel is quite carbonated and feels o.k. but the sourness was so unexpected in this one for me it was tough to overcome. I’m a tad disappointed because I liked the other 2 Jolly Pumpkin beers that I’ve tried so much...
