4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very pale straw color with a very big fluffy white head.
The aroma does retain some of the Hefe-Weizen banana and spice character, but it’s pretty muted by the lemony & earthy/barn-yardy funkiness. There is some yeasty bread dough to it as well. It’s a very fun & inviting bouquet as far as I"m concerned.
The flavor is bright & lemony with some nice earthy hoppiness. The beer has some citrus rind, banana & some spiciness, but a lot of the flavor that the Hefe-Weizen yeast imparts is really pretty muted. It’s tart, it’s dry.... it definitely crosses the line into Sour Ale stylistically as it’s far more a sour than a Hefe-Weizen. It’s really a nice beer from Jolly Pumpkin, very balanced, very complex, well aged.
The palate is very lively, prickly, & delightful.
This exceeds all expectations of the beer, I had expected a sort of banana on oak awkwardness, but this is really something.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 5-15-2010 - Bottle and Batch 399/400. This beer pours a medium sized fizzy white head that mostly diminishes, hazy golden body, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is yeasty, funky, sweet, banana, and spicy. The taste is sweet, banana, spicy, and has a short dry finish. The palate is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer has a nice balance between the aromas and the flavors, but I am not a fan of Farmhouse beers.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells of Belgian yeast, citrus, grassy and a bit earthy. Very light and almost watery mouthfeel. Very slight tartness, but not very noticeable. Mainly a saison that is earthy and grassy and not quite full flavored enough to be great.

Pours a clear golden yellow. Highly carbonated. Head dissipates quickly. Wheat and yeast on the nose. Some sourness is evident also. Smells clean and crisp. Flavor is slightly sour and really nice. Great beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Unique and definitely more sour than Weizen. The aroma was sour and wheat with some citrus. It looked like a clear hefeweizen with a white head. Light and puckering mouthfeel, somewhat watery. Decent carbonation. Sour hits you first followed by wheat, lemon and yeast. It was OK, just not outstanding.
