CapFlu (4589) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2005
(750ml bottle) Sampled at TiggMTL’s Montreal Crew YEHa!05 Christmas Party on December 17, 2005. Pours a quick dissipating white head with a non cabonated deep golden body. Nose of orange, ginger, spiced, yeast and iodine. Sharp hoppiness without the cascade bite, lime, seville oranges (marmelade). Bitter, lasting acidity in subtle quantities round out the finish. Very good.

Clear golden color with a large white head. Aroma is sweet and spicy with moderate citrisy hop presance. flavor also has plenty of citris and sweet malty feel, bready finish and a very slight sour peppery note. Overall it was good but slightly too sweet.

tomxcs (321) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 19, 2005
I got a wonderful deal on a bottle through my girlfriend... This beer pours light golden and mostly clear, with a nice-looking white head. Aroma of spicy and slightly citrusy hops. Body is light but not watery, refreshing, and zesty -- wheaty in a way. A little more citrus in the taste, some pepper/generic "spice," and yeast/bread. Very clean and smooth, fairly dry,with no clues as to its strength. Reminiscent of a biere de garde I had in France last winter. Very good beer -- I like that it is easy to drink but still has a certain level of complexity.

The pour reveals a hazy blonde color with a ring of white lace on top of it. Interesting aroma of candy, fruits, yeast and alcohol. Good flavor of fruits, candy, yeast and alcohol. The palate is light and dry with moderate carbonation. This beer is delicate and subtle, it slowly delivers its secrets sip after sip and makes you want to know more, and have more.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - DEC 12, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2008 (on bottle at CPH Yeha05) Orange colour, white head. Mild yoghurt fatness. Aroma of rotten meat, peppers and perlehops.Has too many resemblents with a heavy weissbier for me. Notes of anis too. Vague, watery mouth, but a hash alcohol warmth too. Rated at 2.7 RERATED august 08. My taste or the brewers attention has sure changed over these 3 and a half years. I got a hazy, dark orange beer, small white head. Citric and spritzy aromas, with notes of coriander and orange peel too. Gets more intense as the beer warms, more spicy and yeasted. Very nice, full barleyed mouthfeel, but the real hit is the fabouless finish. Superb combo of peppercorns, vanilla, esters, alcohol and carbonation. A very nice and complex golden ale. Gets one real warm.

coonarky (2) - iowa city, Iowa, USA - DEC 10, 2005 does not count
I spy with my little eye a nice hazy golden ale. She has a great white head, not too frothy though, and with very little lace. She smells of yeast and musty lemon, with a little bit of hops spice. Her flavor was quite a surprise, Tart with candied lemon, pepper, coriander, and a bit of apple, pear, mango, peach, pomegranate, and other juicy fruit flavors. She makes a very clean get away. This was my first Jolly Pumpkin brew. I was pleasantly surprised. This is a great interpretation of a Belgian farmhouse brew. I picked the bottle up at John’s Grocery in Iowa City. If you dig funky tart candy shit, give this a try. I dug it.
