Explodes out of bottle with a five+ finger off-white head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color. Strong carbonation and medium bodied. Piney nose. Starts sweet and sour, then tartness - maybe cherries, smooth finish, high ABV is not noticeable. $8.99 for a 750ml bottle from Hi-Time Cellars Costa Mesa, Ca.

Courtesy of beastiefan2k. From 750. Pours a cloudy light orange with white head. Nose is a sour oakiness, with vinegar and apple. Flavor follows with a grapefruit rind aftertaste. Palate is nicely carbonated. Another fascinating brew from JP.

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.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUL 29, 2006
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.

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.
