Bottle. Pours cloudy copper/amber. A very unique nose: barely any of the bright, citrusy sweetness I’m used to in JP beers. Hints of cedar wood, musty basement and sour yeast. There’s a bit of a sourdough bread component, too. Fairly lively carbonation. Nice balance of of spice, sweet and dryness on the palate. Notes of pepper, citrus and new oak. Finishes fairly dry.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 Hazy golden-orange pour with a substantial fizzy head. Aroma has some nice citrus, spice, yeast, and light breadiness. Taste is a really nice blend of bread, orange, a pleasant hop bite. This one is really nice. JP does a great job as always. pintocb (654) - Hoon, Georgia, USA - JUN 16, 2007
Slightly clear orange beer with a white head. Smells sour and bready. Almost biscuity. Almost Saison like flavor. Sweet and sour. The finish is really bitter. I didn’t expect such a bitter finish.

A cloudy yellow appearance with a large white head. An herbal, lemon, and banana filled aroma. This one was very carbonated and sour with some vinegar and lemon notes. A spicy and sour finish. Nice one.

750 thanks to Beastiefan2k. Pours a hazy light orange/golden in color. Medium to large off white head. Aroma is really nice, spices, musty yeast, citrus fruit, light notes of funk. Taste is a bit of a letdown in comparison to the aroma. Up front, spices, light citrus and musty, earthy/spicy, lightly funky yeast, and wood. The beer seems to suffer in the mid palate where it becomes bland and watery right through the finish. Perhaps this needed some time to get a bit funkier and tart. skibumphishead (259) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 1, 2007
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. elmatador00 (519) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2007

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