Dark clear red color with close to no foam. Light sour smell. The taste is sweetish, sour a tiny bit bitter. A quite fitting combination. Nice beer with a satisfying aftertaste.

Shared bottle at Uber. Hazy amber with big head. Mild sweetness. Actually, pretty mild everything. Light yeast and musty flavor....a good drinker, but not very overwhelming. A little bit of sour fruit. Not what I expected.

this was a lot like one of the fantome’s i’ve had (the dark summer i think?) lots of fruit, plum, pear, apricot, green apple, and lemon with strawberries. some candi sugar, hints of malt, and floral/perfumey flavors. some very nice funky cheese flavor as well. i like my beers sour and fruity. very good.

Light sour apple aroma starts things off. Deep golden brown body with an eternal, fluffy, off-white head. Full palate with perfect carbonation. The taste is very light. Wood, sour flavors and some yeast. Very restrained and easy to drink.

Bottle. Aroma of sour fruits with musty bread. Medium brown hazy hue with a small fully diminishing head that left no lace. Flavor is sweet and tart with a nice dry earthy finish. Palate is light-medium bodied and soft. Very good beer. Wonderful sour falvor and aroma with a great earthy balance. Bravo!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL: rich dark brown appearing brew with a very mild white head with very little retention. some oakiness and sour notes to the nose. mild hop presence, initial main flavor is some tartness/sourness followed by the first tinge of oakiness then some fruity yeast flavors and a lingering oak and alcohol flavor. very dry finish, but there is some malt flavor that is present, which is pretty rare for jolly pumpkin. perfectly fermented beer and the oak is proudly evident, but not overbearing. very good brew.
