UPDATED: MAY 17, 2009 750ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) - shared by oh6gdx - thanks!TBone (18565) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2009
Deep orange, small head. Bizarre aroma - odd fruitiness and brett acidity, but with a noticeable malt component too. Palate crisp. Orange taste, some dry spices too, old cloves perhaps, and a touch of soap. Sourness doesn’t fit in perfectly. Certainly interesting and well-made beer (though the brett is clearly not spontaneous, and sticks out a mile), but not my style.
Bottled (Pikkulintu, 0,75 ltr).
Hazy orange color, small off-white head. Very herbal, hayish, a bit perfumic nose. Sour, grapefruity, some tangerine peel, vanilla. Herbal-spicey cooking, weird beer. It’s like some Fantome saisons. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2009
Bottled. Hazy amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruits, sourness, some spices and yeast. Flavour is sour fruits, some hops, mild notes of spices. Quite sour wooden notes. malrubius (3088) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 7, 2009
750ml in all-purpose Duvel glass. Pale amber with flat head and lace. Mild spicy cinnamon funky fruity caramel aroma. Funky fruity sweet pineapple and spicy flavors with funky spicy woody clean finish. Medium-light body. Nice mouthfeel. Very refreshing. I just can’t stop sipping it. Nice.

Bottle. Aroma of plastic, caramel malt, toasted coconut, standard JP funk. Flavor a mix of caramel malt and that JP funk. A little more body and malt to balance the by now boring funk than in some other JP’s, but still not really getting me going. Dedollewaitor (16545) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 29, 2009
75cl bottle at VV tasting, Odense. Batch 335. Pours amber orange with a small creamy white head. Nose is funky - barnyard, oak, brett and hops. Lively mouthfeel - close to spritzy. Dry and warm taste with hops, oak, brett and vanilla. A little tart & yeasty. Very nice and complex beer. LilBeerDoctor (4236) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours a deep clear amber with a small ring of white head. Aroma of nice sour funk, sweettart candies, lemons, and a touch of oak. Flavor of sour brett and bitter, lemony hops in the finish. Pretty similar to any other Jolly Pumpkin beer, but it’s still quite tasty.

Pours a murky red. Lots of fruity brett nose. Some wood flavor, sour fruits, green apple. Slight nutty oily mouthfeel. Christian (13930) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 24, 2009
Cloudy amber with a lasting white head. Aroma has fresh oak, coconut and bourbon notes on top of grapefruit and brett. Dry and tart grapefruit and brett flavour with a strong tannin character, with a faint note of christmas spices and possibly a nutty touch. There is a little spicy hotness in the finish.
