Well this bottle was my first adventure into the Jolly Pumpkin line of beers. And I have to say I really didn’t enjoy it all that much. I think that the sourheads wont have another member soon. The funk and tartness is just too much for me. mar (5434) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 29, 2008
bottle courtesy of bu11zeye. black until held up to light color with no real head. slight sourness along with some spices in the background. sweet, sourness flavor that is very smooth. nice mouthfeel and a very balanced flavor overall. GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2008
Bottle (750ml) shared at ’Biegaman’s Second Annual Saison Tasting’ - courtesy of blankboy. Hazy reddish-brown with lotsa small floaties. Great aroma - very funky with some interesting sweet/sour malt notes and a subtle spiciness. Medium bodied. Flavour is milder then expected, with some controlled funkiness along with toasted malt and yeast. Very tasty, very refreshing - I could drink a lot of this! thedm (6275) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 26, 2008
This bottled brew from Indianapolis, IN poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized cream colored long lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent dark golden brown colored body with strong soda pop like carbonation and a good lacing. The aroma was funky and lambic like with a mild brown malty note. The mouth feel was tingly and crisp with a sour palate. The flavor contained notes of tingly bubbly lambic like sour and mild brown malts. madsberg (11774) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2008

750mL bottle. Poured deep iced tea brown with a creamy, sticky cap of off-white head.. just beautiful! The aroma was also delightful with chocolate and caramel notes over spicy lemon and funky notes.. quite engaging. The flavor had an odd blend of darker malts (the aforementioned chocolate and caramel) paired with sour, funky notes, light wheat, and toasted barley.. didn’t come across nearly as well as the nose.. sour finish with the same dark malts. The carbonation was too aggressive on the palate.. sourness worked OK in here, but it clashed a bit with the grain bill.. drier finish. This was just OK overall for me. bgburdman9 (865) - columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2008
An old rating i finally got to entering. Flavor was really tart and yeasty. Aroma was a little funky. Not as dry as bam biere which was much better i thought. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 24, 2008
Bottle batch 258/259. Garnet color with a tight white head. Cheesy barnyard and sourdough yeasty aroma. Light/medium body. Has a citrusy, tart lemon flavor at first, then dusty roasted malts. Very dry flavors. Brett yeast doesn’t work with every beer style. Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of SoLan/tertons. Pours a clear orangey brown with a tall and lively off-white head leaving some lacework. Refreshingly light Brett aroma. Light in body with dry woody accents, a vague fruitiness and a dry and lightly astringent finish. Quite refreshing. 190608 joergen (28704) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2008
