Bottle. Pours with a hazy yellow color. Aromas of citrus and lemon, flavors are of tart citrus, with a yeast backbone. This beer is similar to a RR Temptation, similar carbonation and similar sourness without the oak component.

Bottle. Hazy honey color with a big white head. Nice, fresh aroma - gueze-esque. Straw, yeast, grass, marvelous hop notes, and light malty backbone. Slightly tart flavor. Flavor isn’t as nice as the aroma... Still, great upfront spiciness and a super mellow finish. Highly carbonated, almost like seltzer, but it works. This is a nice saison - give it to me with a bratwurst and some sunshine and I’ll be your friend forever.

Cliff (355) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2007
Bottle, this stuff is great! Poured a slightly hazy deep straw color with a billowy white head. Great aromas of spicy yeastiness and earthy hops. I was skeptical about a dry hopped saison, but that quickly faded as I took my first sip of this delight. Bubbly mouthfeel and a great spicy flavor with anote of sourness and dry finish. Wonderful beer. The more Jolly Pumpkin I drink the more I want.

Bottle from the legend MartinT! My god i wasnt expecting this, peachy, earthy, lambic goodness, tart, amazing. Taste is going down the same lines as the aroma, what a beer i could drink this till it came out my tits.

hoppymeal (38) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2007
Straw colored and hazy with a tight white head. First smells are perfumy, tart green apples, and then a light honey with a little spice. A lot going on in the aroma of this one. There is a slight sweetness first on the tongue which is followed by a lemony, grassy tartness with a bitter finish. The beer is crisp and refreshing and although this might not be something I choose for everyday drinking, Jolly Pumpkin has a very wide array of aromas and flavors built into this beer.

Stine (1793) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 15, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2008 The pour is thick and cloudy, dandelion yellow. Dried red apple and spice aromas lead - paprika and clove. Sundried tomato. Dusty mint leaf hops with a trace of citrus. Grassy, damp taste with a spicy, herbal sentiment. Sparkly, sprightly mouthfeel, distantly dry in the finish. A perfect balance of complexity and refreshment, fitting to satisfy any occasion. Outstanding.

Bottle from City Beer Store. Miller Lite color, but the slight haziness and creamy white head give it away. Beautiful aroma of belgian yeast, sour apple, a little dirt, lavender. Thin mouthfeel, fruity, smooth, a little more bitter than I was expecting but not unpleasantly so. Made my ears perk up a little.

demitriustown (1192) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2007
12 oz bottle: A wonderful sour apple aroma at first. a wonderful floral aromatic to the scent, herbs, and almost a white wine aroma to it too. Very interesting aroma to say the least. Pours a cloudy orangeish/yellow with a rocky white head that lingers. Flavor is I can tell that the yeast is in there. with a fruity smoothness that is quite sessionable. nicely spiced and overall a thirst quenching beer, I really like this Jolly Pumpkin beer.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2007 Hazy golden color with a big cakey head. Aroma is musty, spicy, and sweet with some sweet fruits, yeast, and earthen scents detectable. Taste is a complex mix of sweet & bitter fruits, yeast, earthy malt flavors, and some light spices. Another good JP beer. 12/8/07 - Just bought another case of this and found the latest batch to be even better - nearly a "9" in taste as the sourness is more pronounced and pleasant. Greater sour-citrus aroma that really appetizes. Oh, and its still only 4.5%ABV so I can have one (or perhaps two?) with lunch or dinner without feeling any effects.
