So I’m up in michigan, first time in a while. Decided, after some research, that Jolly Pumpkin was the brewer to hit up north. This is comparable to duvel, in my opinion.

Pours a clear golden orange with a decent white head that goes quickly. Smell is slight basement funk and crackers. Taste super light for a 8% beer, slight funk, a little tart, bathwater yeast. Really nice. Another great beer from Jolly Pumpkin.

My first Jolly Pumpkin and wouldn’t be the last. Still transferring my Beer Advocate over. I got a lot of black pepper out of this one. Along with the tart and funk.

jahshuwuh (304) - USA - SEP 24, 2013
Hazy murky yellow/orange minimal head. Smells of sour funk, pepper, pineapple. An initial subtle sour taste with some spiciness and a little bit of hop bitter. Pretty smooth, dry finish. A little bit of sweetness but overall the sour, sweet, and spicy are well balanced and subtle. Very well done unique taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
