poured a vibrant yet murky yellow with a big, marshmellow head. aroma is of big citrus, mild yeast, and fermented fruits. flavor is tangy with cherries, lemon and an unusual candy sweetness. excellent medium to full mouthfeel that makes me look forward to the next bottle.

Fun beer! Pours a cloudy yellow-orange color, but as you drain the glass, the color approaches more of a pale yellow, like a witbier. Oh yea, it gushed like nuts...even after I poured a glass to make some room, it gushed a second time! Anyway, big fresh aroma of melons, pineapple, and sourdough. Flavor is medium sweet up front, with peaches. Also, fairly tart with a yeasty bread dough character plus sour cherries. Perhaps a vanilla pepper character is hiding in there. Maybe a slight leafy and spicy hop aromatic. Mild alcohol presence. I enjoyed the buzz this 750 gave me...this beer makes me horny.

Poured a nice pretty yellow with a great head and lacing. The aroma was pepper and melon. Flavor is sour on the front of the tongue with a lot of carbonation and a spicy saison like body. Very nice beer that I wish I had access to.

Crisp, cirtusy and dry. Very bubbly. The beer left a nice lace all the way down the glass with good head retention. Champagne pallate and flavor. No alcohol flavor at all.

Shared with csbosox. Poured light amber with a dirty white head. Sticky lace and good clarity. I think I’m getting yeast character up front in the aroma. Typical JP wood character. A bit of spicy hops. Pepper or maybe a minty spice flavor. Toast and caramel. Oak. Medium body. High carbonation. Dry finish. Easier to drink that most JP offerings.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fragrant, fabulous aroma. Hits you head on as soon as you pour, even from a foot away. It has a soft sourness reminiscent of the best flemish sours, along with a velvet oak characteristic, spicy notes, and all sorts of exotic fruits: kiwi, lime, passionfruit, mango. I rarely give a 10 in flavor or aroma but this one is just so perfect. The pour is fabulous too; a semi-clear, liquid gold with quickly rising carbonation and a large, chunky, thick white head. In the mouth it is strong and alcoholic, with pungent floral notes and spices, and a spritzy mouthfeel. Jolly Pumpkin is a seriously awesome brewer.

750 ml bottle. Spicey fermented aroma. Hazy darker shade of yellow with decent white head some floaters and good bubble carbination. Flavor starts out with some strong spice, pepper, tart and hop bite. This beer takes a 180 turn by finish and mellows out for a smooth finish. Good brew.

thanks to cmubeerman for sharing. smells like a jolly pumpkin. looks great. got the yeast, but that was a mistake. pretty sour, interesting. pretty easy to like for the sour biere de garde type beer. way too carbonated, though.
