copestx (227) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle. Wild yeast, cherries and oak in the aroma. Taste is sour fruits, oak, chestnuts, plums, a more classic Flanders red (as opposed to the more vinegary brown) but with some funk and lemon as well. Mild carbonation. Really, really good.

3.5
chucklemation (1684) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Pours an amber/brown with a thin white head. Aroma is lactic acid, fruit, and herbal and spice notes. Flavor is similar. This is pretty sour. Pretty good.

3.7
Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2016
750ml bottle. Murky orange shade. Finger of head. Notes of grape, green apple, citrus, deep earthiness and oak. Dry and slightly sour taste. Nicely joined up. Seems like a good example of this style.

3.6
jhamp9 (1860) - Corinth, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Clear red copper pour with a white head. Aroma is earthy funk, wood, and some tart cherry. Taste is funk, earth, wood, berry skin, and faint apple cider vinegar. Dry finish. Light body.

3.4
onceblind (9664) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Clear deep amber with a thin off white bubbly head that recedes a little fast. Earthy funky and peppery nose full of white pepper, lactic and bretty combined funk, earthy Amber brine and something almost like Colby jack cheese. Funky earthy flavor with a slightly tart Amber malt, gentle citrus fruitiness, light sour, and some barrel notes. Earthy and peppery and slightly red-berry flavored throughout.

Kr1srobn (1) - Metairie, Louisiana, USA - JUN 3, 2016 does not count
2016-2-12 bottle, the yeast seemed too spontaneous ferment, good pucker factor, no malt, little body, have had better Flanders, but this was enjoyable.

There have been only two beers I’ve had that I took two sips of and poured down the sink. This, sadly, was one. Average smell and appearance still didn’t prepare me for way-too-fruity and sour flavor that was unpalatable to me. Didn’t get any taste of the oak barreling at all. After taste wasn’t any better. It’s the first Jolly Pumpkin that l’ve had after being intrigued for a while. May be a while before I stick my toe back into the water.

3.6
nimbleprop (8382) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2016
On tap at Jolly Pumpkin in Detroit pours a muddy brownish amber with basically no head. Nose is a mix of dark fruit, some dried fruit, a little vinegar, some wood pulp. Flavor is tart with acid and underipened fruit, raisins, dates, some apricot too, light tobacco notes, some cooked greens, some neutral oak. Dry finish.

3.9
rougeau13 (3014) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Bottle from Spec's. Hazy, almost muddy, reddish-brown with a very tiny off-whitish head. Aroma of sour cherry, musty wood, and caramel. Taste is sour and woody. Slick, slightly dry, and medium bodied. Good.
