Beerlando is now my best friend for sharing this. Great beer. Slight red wine smell with some lemons and the signature Jolly Pumpkin funk. Taste has a lot of La Roja influence with the sour funk leading the way and some slight spice in the background. There is a great balance in the flavors and the oak from the aging.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2008
Appears deep amber golden with practically no head what so ever. I scient something similar to lactose, some marcipan and hazelnuts and breadcrums. Besides that there is spirits and you clearly sense the wooden barrels. The taste is very sour and like the nose the taste is rather alcohol-dominated in heavy compatition with wooden tastes from the barrelaging. The palate is creamy with a sourness that makes your tounge play twister..

JAXSON (526) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2008
750ml bottle, thanks Jeremy! Pours a tepid orange/amber with a soapy white ring. Sour and really oaky on the nose, with a definite quality of fermenting apples. Oak and sourness abound in the mouth. Especially sour near the back, but really quite dry. More apples. Some residual sweetness and a tropical fruit presence like coconut creeps in on the finish. Very nice. Prickly sourness throughout, but not at all abrasive. This is probably the best Jolly Pumpkin beer Ive had. A really delicious treat, and Ill probably never have it again.

Guerde (1162) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 19, 2008
(bottle shared by Stine, thanks Eben!) Pours hazy amber with no head. Typical sour ale aroma of nail polish, cherry skin, and oak, which is rather Rodenbach-esque. The flavor is lightly sweet, substantially oaky and peppery, with a hint of butter, and moderate sourness. The mouthfeel was medium, with a light sourness on the finish.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Pours amber with a thin white head. Smells of funky yeast, some tartness, residual sugar. Tastes of sweet malt, lots of bretty dryness and some lactic hints on the finish. Nice!

Shared by Stine, thanks Eben, super cool. I am very surprised with the JP special releases, surprised that I do not seem to enjoy them that much. The beer starts fine. Aroma has a good amount of sourness but it has all these other characteristics that are coming to describe American sour ales. There is a whole bunch of barrel (similar to Springfield Mueller Reserve, Buzzards Bay Farmhouse), lots of buttery oak, sweet oak sugars. Taste has a lot oak coming through, a negative astringent fruitiness and a nice thick vinegar like sourness. Not enough sourness to offset the other over-oaked characteristics. I am really glad I got to try this but this goes in line with a lot of the other brews that spend a lot of time in the barrel. Too much time? Maybe the barrels are newer, who knows?

Bottle from WeeHeavySD, thanks Jon. Pours slightly amber with off-white head. Aroma of sourness and funk, oh yes. Flavors were sour but not over the top with somw sweetness.
