After being slightly disappointed with the Bam Biere, I decided to open this one. It was 95 here today, and I was outside most of the day, so once this one was very cold, I opened it up. Pours out with a giant head, with chunks of shit floating all down through it. Fear not, it does not four up the flavor of this beer. Smells fruity, with a nice smell of oranges and some oak. Taste is very similar, and very refreshing. Much more complex than say...Hoegaarden is. This beer definately makes the brewery stand out, as any brewery that makes a really good solid Witbier gets my vote. Really great beer, and worth trying at any cost.

Light to dark yellow color with a big bountiful head. Sweet spicy aroma almost pasta like. Fruity in the flavor, some hints of lemon, has a nice wheat character to it. A little tart but ends up with a nice dry finish. My first jolly pumpkin very interesting

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Poured a light straw color with a very slight haze and a fluffy tight white head. Aroma has a very wheaty, hay-field character, with lots of lemon. Flavor is lemon, with mint, and sourdough. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry and tart. What I really enjoy about Jolly Pumpkin ales are the brettanomyces chraracter that leaves and interesting depth to their beers. This would go well with white fleshed pan sheared fish or under the shade of a tree on a warm summers evening.

Delicious aroma, very enticing, dried flowers and fresh cut wheat stalks, with a spicy citrus zing in the flavor, and some nice toasted malt, clean and very dry, with some nice fruitiness, and yeasty esthers. Still has that JP sour flavor, with evident corriander zest. Definitely worth trying.

It had a thin, fizzy head and a body that was way too translucent for a witbier. It is quite dry but the aroma is just not the spice and citrus that a good wit should be. Agree that its closer to a saison than a witbier. Not what I was expecting out of a top ten wit for this site.

Bottle. Sour, musty wheat aroma. Light yellow with giant head and high effervescence. Light dry orange and musty flavor with spice tones in the finish - coriander and vanilla. Probably the driest witbier available - tastewise closer to a saison or lambic. A very nice tasting beer but if you’re expecting a taste like Hoegaarden, you’re going to be disappointed.

Bockyhorsey (2638) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 14, 2006
12oz. Bottle. Multiple aromas of spice, banana, vanilla and mustard. Cloudy yellow body with creamy head. Vanilla and banana flavor with spices in the background. Smooth on the palate and leves some light spice and vanilla aftertaste. Good brew suprised to see Jolly Pumkin in 12 oz. bottles in AZ.

Ok, this one didn’t impress me. Poured a bit too clear of a golden yellow color with a very thin head and near to none lacing. The aroma was tart and lemon-like. The flavor was all funky lemon tart, coriander/spices underplayed. Tasted like a Berliner Weisse (but with more tart than lactic acids) crossed with Martens Madonna. The mouthfeel was thin, lightly carbonated.

Shag (3059) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 11, 2006
A spicy lemon aroma. The flavor is rather sour and dusty with a mix of some mouth pukering citrus fruit. The mouthfeel is rather dry. Pretty good wit beer.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded-one. Pours hazy golden with a huge fluffly white lasting head. Aroma of citrus, fermented fruit, champange like nose. Flavor is carbonated, sour, citrusy, not my thing, i wasn’t into this as much as I originally thought I would be. Reminded me of an unblended lambic (Cantillon Iris)
