Cavie (3829) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2009
Bottle courtesy of AmEricanbrew. Clouded orange color with sediment apparent. Sour and tart aroma. Sweet notes but tartness prevails. Taste is tart but in the greatest way. Nice balance. This is a sour I can relate to.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Huge thanks to AmEricanbrew! Pours with a small white head over a hazy amber body. Aroma of wet wood, wine barrel (red wine), caramel and a hint of vinegar. Taste is caramel, lightly tannic and light bitter with some vinegar, brett and florals. Not super sour, but beautifully balanced and easy to drink. Light bubbles. Great.

TAR (2517) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Lightly hazed rufous. Minute yet condensed white foam. Vibrantly lactic, stewed peach aromas with dabs of iron, fresh leather, and distant nutty oak and straw-tinged malt. Soft and slick in body. Oak and minerals immediately grip the palate with a tight clinch as slick notes of acetic acid try to take foothold. Brett-generated minerals bludgeon many of the subtle esters and phenols, as well as the powdery malt textures. Soft tropical fruit and juicy leather suggestions link up with assertive stewed-peach fruitiness and coconut-shaded oak. Savory interplay between the peach and springy malt, though the center lacks depth. Tartness is understated yet well-rounded. Finishes with a vaguely defined dusting of oak and straw with peach fuzz bitterness trailed by an astringent bite of acetic acid reminiscent of uric acid. Not very impressed with this...very fuzzy and muddled. Nose is overrun with acetic acid, and there is little in the way of depth or yeast/phenolic/estery nuance. I adore this brewery, but this is not one of Ron’s finer efforts. Thanks for sharing, mj.

3fourths (8216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2009
750ml bottle. Pours clear copper with a white head. Nose is intense white wine grapes, musty barnyard lacto and pedio... horseblanket, leather, olive oil, red apple skins... intense, beautiful. Body is oily up front, big, full, chewy, syrupy... then a medium acidity, some oily and tart olives, canola, that sort of thing. Finish is herbal tarragon, black pepper, roasted pears, prickly and tannic oak... awesomely strange stuff.

kramer (5063) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2009
25 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy orangish amber body with a very small fizzy off-white head that faded very quickly. Lots of visible carbonation. Very funky nose, lots of brett and a little bit of sweaty feet and horse blanket. Oak, light apple cider vinegar, and some lighter sweet caramel maltiness. The flavor is very dry, slightly tart, with a restrained acidity. Lots of JP house character here, prominent oak, light cider vinegar, and some vanilla. Mouthfeel is dry and mouth puckering with a lingering funk laced finish. This was a nice one, it stands up to the best of American Wild Ales out there.

Pailhead (5037) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAY 4, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2009 Courtesy of GrandCruDrew at northernbrews’ November ’08 sour tasting

Bottle: The aroma consists of apple, oak, lemon, and vanilla. It pours a transparent amber with some sediment and a small off-white head. The flavor starts with sour apple up front. It finishes with modeate vanilla and faint oak. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Last pour from 750 ml, and not positive on batch #, so hopefully I get to taste and rate again, but hazy pour, heavy oak and malt aroma, sour apple flavor, sweet finish.

Big thanks to Beerlando for sharing. Cloudy amber with a thin broken white head. Sour fruity aroma, peppery classic JP funk, slight tartness, gets fruitier as it warms a bit. Great taste - I taste a lot of La Roja-like influence, subtle sour tones, almost a lingering sour cherry note. Subtle.

750ml bottle. The body is a mostly clear, dark apple cider color. A frothy, cream colored head settles slowly to film with a thick, foamy edge. Skinny arches and random spots of lace mark the glass. Aromas include dusty apples, caramel malts, loads of strong, virgin oak, and vanilla. Of course, what would the nose be without the signature Jolly Pumpkin brett funk, an element that this brew has plenty of. The flavor is quite sour, strikingly so in fact, with heaps of apple influence from the La Roja. Oak just oozes from this brew, almost to the point of being overbearing. Vanilla and caramel smooth things out a bit, calming some of the intense sourness, while the brett does its job in drying everything out with funky, farmhouse flavor. Medium bodied, bubbly, and crisp, the apple tartness and the oak linger for a good while after the finish. Another very good offering from JP, although I’m not convinced that it is significantly better than its primary contributor, the La Roja.
