markducommun (168) - Wilmette, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Lightly clouded pale yellow, no head. Dry, tart berry, light floral nose. Some spice. Dry bitterness initially, sour. Finishes long and extremely dry. Lighter body, fairly effervescent. Alcohol is present but far from overbearing. Very well balanced, quite interesting. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlackerMads (1429) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle batch 1119/1146 date 01-08-2013. Haven’t had a Jolly Pumpkin for a while, so I forgot about the gushing. Pours hazy yellow, medium/high effervescence with a medium sized white head. Barnyard, leather, yellow apples and pear, melon, white pepper, light toasted wood, a bit of candy sugar. Medium body, oily/soft texture, medium carbonation, medium sweet with light bitterness and acidity. Long light sweet spicy finish. Tasty.

zach8270 (3376) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUL 11, 2014
(bottle - 750 ml - batch 297) Cloudy gold pour with a ton of white foam. A Jolly Pumpkin beer that’s way too carbonated? Who knew? Sweet yeast and vanilla wood notes in the aroma. Some light hops. Lots of yeast and dry malts in the flavor with a definite hint of the barrel aging. Spicy and clean finish. Just too much carbonation.

Bottle. Yellow to gold appearance with an airy head. Buttery, with notes of apple, guava, and papaya. Finishes with lemon, pepper, and a distinct tartness.

haukur (1269) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 26, 2014
Golden with a firm head. Huge bouquet of spices, lemons, hops, grass and orange peel grate you in your nose. Just enough acidity, beautifully balanced. Finish is funk, slight hops, peppers. Wow

jde123 (763) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 21, 2014
This is a wonderful, mild belgian ale. Lovely aroma, not too sweet, nice and mild, as I said. pours frothy, with a bright wide head and cloudy orange body. Taste is a little weak, likely on the aforementioned mild side. Nice beer.

Awesome funky dry crisp and chewy beverage. Hazy straw color and slick mouthfeel. Nice.

Zymurgeist2 (952) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 9, 2014
From bottle to tulip. Spice. lemon, and sweet grain bread. Slight tart funk is very nice. Hazy dusted gold with a full white head that leaves moderate lacing down the side. Flavor is moderate low spice with candi sugar and cracker malt. Slightly bacterial with solid yeast accents. All-around goodness.

TXBadger (1246) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with fizzy white head. Oak, cereal grain, and spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes dry, tart and some pepper which is weird. Not my favorite offering from JP.
