Poured pale yellow with a foamy white head. Nice appearance. Smelled like corriander, orange, lemon and spice. Taste was way too sour for me. Bad bottle perhaps.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy pale golden coloured body with a huge frothy white head. Funky aroma - cheesy and oaky yeast with a good dose of lemon zest and pears. Similar to a typical Wit but then you have the JP twist of tart funkiness. Soft creamy yeast mouthfeel with lots of fruity flavour. Mild sweetness up front then leading into some citric lemony finish with some soapiness. Pretty good and interesting. Purchased at The Beer Depot, Ann Arbor in February 2006.

egajdzis (6239) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2006
Poured a hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of earthy yeast, spices, citrus, orange peel, and some grassy hops. Taste was quite sour, grapes, green apple, more citrus, that was tart and acidic. Medium carbonation.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 3, 2006
Pours a lightly hazy golden yellow with a small bubbly white head. Aroma of spices, wheat, barnyard, lemon coriander, some orange and vanilla. Flavor was more of the wheat, slightly tart and tingly carbonation. Was also picking up some of the wood in the aroma and flavor.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 30, 2006
Hazy straw yellow with a huge rocky white head. Spicy aroma, coriander, lemon. The lemon flavor dominates the flavor here, though it could just be this bottle is past its prime. Thin and watery at times as well.

pulykamell (4) - USA - APR 23, 2006 does not count
Lambic, wild-yeast aroma, reminiscent of a gueuze. Carbonated, lively mouthfeel, almost like champagne. No Belgian lacing whatsoever in this beer. Immediate flavor is citrus, fades to sour yeast, and leaves an almost tannic dryness on finish. Its short aftertaste with sparkling acidity makes this a refreshing beer. Its a different take on the witbier. Think witbier meets saison.

OldMrCrow (2427) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 22, 2006
From the bottle.

Pours a hazy straw-gold with an ambitious white head. The aroma is sour yeasts and a bit of orange and candy-shop and hint of coconut and nutmeg. On the tongue, the beer is surprisingly sour and rustic, almost heading into saison territory. Lemon juice dominates the flavor early, spiced up by belgian witbeer yeasts and ginger and again the coconut with a nice and impressively bitter grassy-hop finish that only appears very late in the sip. The palate is sparkling and refreshing.

This my first taste of Jolly Pumpkins wares, and Im impressed. This is a very nice take on a belgian witbeer.

Zeswaft (1706) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 22, 2006
Still has that ridiculous sour aroma. Ive never seen a more carbonated beer. I thought the glass was going to explode. Flavor is a watered down Bam Biere which is good because that beer is horribly bad. This has the same sour vinegar taste. Doesnt taste at all like witbier. again, not that bad because its not as intensely gross as the Bam Biere.
