COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve teamed up with Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales to create a special collaborative oak aged ale with plums, brewed to celebrate Plum Market’s 5 year anniversary. The special sour blend is aged on organic Royal Diamond plums; it’s an amber with a hint of roast, malty, sweet, and sour, and the delicate aroma and delicious flavor of more plums than you can shake a stick at.

yngwie (16613) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle, 75cl corked. Batch 976. It’s a more or less clear one, dark amber in color and with a dense, light beige head of moderate size. The aroma is quite fruity, plums and some lemony hints. A faint peppery and bretty touch too. Some faint caramel notes in the flavor, but it’s the fruityness that dominates. Plums and some lemon. Peppery hints towards the end, and a nice bitterness. A quite nice one, but not impressive in any way. Drinks easy and tastes well. 131122

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2013
In short: A fruity amber sour-acidic ale with a dirty farmhouse character. Ok.
How: Bottle 750ml, consumed when approximately 1 year of age. Bottle from my man sarro, thanks a lot Kyle.
The look: Cloudy amber body topped by a persistent small beige head.
In long: Nose is funky-sour, a strong fruity character, a wet dog sleeping on a horse blanket. In mouth the beer offers a medium body with an active tickling carbonation. Taste is a strange array of not-always-harmonious flavors, plums, tart dark grapes, funky sourness, caramel, dirty wood, leathery brett, earth, woody wine, dirty wet cloth, citric acidity. A too much acidity bite, that lowers the drinkability. Not that plumy, seems to me that with age the plums faded away a bit and developed grapes and vinous flavors. All in all a decent sour ale, but a below average Jolly Pumpkin. I really need to rate all Jolly Pumpkin beers I can find, is it a sign that I have an obsessive compulsive problem? Honestly, is it? I need to know. Am I obsessive? Seriously. Am I? Please bm me, I really need to know. Have you sent me a bm yet?

jredmond (7787) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Body courtesy of Ramy at Paul’s Housewarming 2013. Pours a deep orange body with nice thick white head and lacing. Aroma is spice, grapes, funky peach and additional sour fruits. Mouthfeel is medium with nice lightly acidic palate and notes of tangy citrus fruits, grapes, peach and that classic JP funk. Decent wheat and malt character balances out the sour/tart flavor bringing this closer to a saison than a sour ale.
