750 poured into a tulip. The aroma was perfume and coriander. The flavors were citrus, pepper, apple cider, and fresh bread. The finish was sweet apple cider and grapes. This beer was hoppy and refreshing with tons of fruit and spices. Jolly Pumpkin has been outstanding thus far... now I have to try them all.

Great smelling brew, spices really take the lead here. Funky barnyard is also there, with an Orval like dryness and crisp hop finish.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2007 Spicy sour aroma, corriander and some citrus. Pours pale amber with a thick white head. So good. Gentle hops, smooth sourness with good spices. So drinkable, im happy to finish the 750 all by myself! I love Jolly Pumpkin!

This Belgian Ale pours a deep orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Large sized white foamy head, long lasting with lots of head retention. Aroma is citrus and spices, mostly orange with some hops and a touch of herbal. A medium to lighter bodied Belgian ale. Malts are fruity and not too sweet. Lots of spices, some yeast, must and barnyard. Dry and crisp, yet there is some sweetness. Lively carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and very dry. Aftertaste is a touch sweet with contrasts nicely with the dry finish.

750ml. Bottle $7.49 Binnys Orland Luciernaga poured a hazed over orange into my tulip glass. There are many tiny carbonation bubbles rising from everywhere. A 3 finger white microbubbled head appeared on the pour that faded to a 2 finger rockiness. Leaves chunk lacing after each drink. Smell is dominated by spices but they are in no way overwhelming. Im picking up clove and cardamom that are really nicely balanced. There is that summer field weediness and barn muskiness that are common in saisons. Very refreshing. Theres is much more malt in the flavor and the spices are more subdued. Nice malty sweetness with a twang on the finish. Its all together spicy and herbal. Very nice. Saison like with a slight sourness and a little more malt backbone. Mouthfeel is light and lively. Dancing on the tongue. Finishes crisp and dry. Drinkability is very good. The spices are in no way overpowering. Dry and leaving me wanting more. The lower 6.5% ABV will let you enjoy more than one glass easily. The Firefly is an extremely goodbeer from Jolly Pumpkin. Definately worth a try if you see it. A nice little twist on a good saison. 1/21/07

this one was a bit of a gusher. slightly hazy orange/amber with a great fluffy white head that lasts forever. great lacing that sticks to the glass long after the beer is gone. orange coriander aroma with notes of fresh baked bread with light caramelization. nice balance of sweet tart and bitter flavors.sweet/tart orange apple coriander are in the forefront light caramel and bread notes with bitter spicy underling hops rounding out the flavor. sweet tart bitter dry finish. orange coriander apple. lively carbonation. some slightly herbal notes throughout....what i cant quite put my finger on.... medium body. nice. interesting. very reminiscent of orval....but there is something i like about this one a bit more.

750ml bottle, courtesy of jimbowood (big thanks!), pours a murky dark golden with a large pillowy persistent head and great lacing. Aroma of coriander and a lot of general spices. Theres a lot going on in the aroma and its very pleasant and familiar but I cant quite place everything there. Flavor is a bit sweet and a bit hoppy, and works very well. Notes of orange, apple, a some yeastiness. Palate is light, lively, with a dry finish; very enjoyable. This is not what I was expecting, but was pleasantly surprised.
