JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2005
Dark slightly cloudy liquid with a tall light cream colored head. Aromas of light fruit and cookies with mild floral and spicy undertones. Hint od yeast and alcohol come out as it warms. Mild flavors, with raisins, pale malt, light yeast vanilla and and sweet alcohol. Full and satisfying. More a cross with a golden and a triple, but I like the way it works and is a most enjoyable belgian style ale. Thanks Lou, you know who!

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2005
Bottle pours a deep, dull, cloudy golden, large white foamy head, with attractive lacing. † Sweet bready aroma, seems thick and viscous. † Slight spices, orange peel, minor pepper, with a hint of alcohol. † Malty/Bready up front, subtle spices and the aformentioned pepper. † Alcohol heat & a slight medicinal twinge at first, but as it warms it mellows out nicely. † Almost thought it was a young/hot Grand Cru at first. † Still feel the heat in my chest tho. † Very nice body, flavor lingers and coats well. † Medium to full mouthfeel, slightly syrupy. † Mellows out at the finish, remains malty/bready, with soft spices & pepper. † More noticeable fig/date in the aftertaste. † As with my prior Jolly Pumpkin, it seems to go through quite a few changes as it warms. † Enjoyable! † Thanks goes out to CaptainCougar for the trade!

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2005
Funky but sweet, with some fresh meadow hopiness and some spiciness on the nose. Hazy amber with a sweet medium body. Lingers very nicely although the carbonation seemed a little to high for me. Overall very nice.

Wow, this has an aroma of a tripel with the taste of Duvel. A hazy orange color with a huge rich head. Aroma of pepper, sugar, Belgian yeast. Taste of spices, hops, yeast. Smooth feel, easy to drink, 8% not noticable at all. This beer is an achievment to the craft beer movement of Michigan as it is hard to believe that this did not come from Belgium. Wonderful beer and brewery.

Ernest (6345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2011 Bottle (Oct 2011 batch). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, barnyard), with notes of lemon/lime zest, pepper, oak, sour apple skin. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Itís been years since Iíve had a blockbuster batch, but itís usually very good.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2005
Thanks to BBB63 for this one. Pours hazy dark straw with a huge off-white head and hop and yeast floaties (green and brown both floating). Aroma of malt, some hopcit, Brett, barnyard, spice. Tastes malty, with solid citrus and fruit, also spice, Brett, candi sugar, and bell pepper. Very smooth, complex, dense palate. Again, in a blind taste test, I think 99% of people would say this came from Belgium. Gets better as you drink it. JP is one of the best new brewers Iíve had in 2005.

Bottle. Thanks to wohlfs for this! hazed amber with a frothy white head. Aroma is spices, candy sugar, yeast, flowers and fruits(banana and melon, mainly). Taste is sweet and spicy with more candy sugar, fruits, light floral notes, yeast and some light earthy notes. Body is fully carbonated and overal very smooth. Light tingling to this. Finishes with more fruit and candy sugar with light spices and yeastiness. An odd bitterness towrd the end that I canít quite place. Sort of woody and covered in over-ripe fruits. Nice beer, nonetheless.
