CheesedMan (572) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Pours a beautifully clouded auburn color. Head is huge and billowy, with peaks much like freshly whipped meringue. Aroma is spicy and citrusy, some yeast and funk thrown in for good measure. I find myself wanting to continue to inhale. Flavor is bright and spicy, with a nice hop "pop" on the finish. Very amazing beer.

Nephilium (1821) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2007
This starts with an aroma of spice, with a certain sourness hiding behind it. It pours an opaque amber, with a thick white head. The flavor is peppery, with a hint of dryness there. Strong presence of spice, with a hint of citrus fruits. Very light palate. I don’t think there’s a Jolly Pumpkin beer that hasn’t impressed me.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Pours a ruby red color with a big, foamy white head. Aroma is spicy, sour Jolly Pumpkin funk smell. The tart, vinegar like smell of a Flemish Sour is here but a little more subdued and appetizing. Taste is smooth, tart, subtly sour that is flavorful but extremely easy to drink. Another solid brew from JP.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 I’m not huge on the sour beers, but this one I enjoyed. Didn’t find it to be as drinkable as I would’ve liked, but the taste was pretty good.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JUL 3, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2007 750ml bottle. Pours hazy reddish copper with an off-white head. Aroma is corriander, yeast, other spices, and sour citrus. Initial taste is spicy, earthy, and corriander followed by a funkiness with horseblanket and barnyard aspects. Finish is spicy hops. Full mouthfeel. Really good.Old rating, just added.

750ml bottle brought back from Chicago. A great belgian style pale ale. Nice malt backing, some spiciness, mild funkiness and sourness, and a big flavorful, hoppy finish. This is an amazing session beer.

3.8
Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2007
Second brew sampled at joebrew’s Friday evening beer tasting at Cellars. Pours a burt golden yellow brew with a thick foamy off white head with excellent retention. Around of floral hops, citrus (lemon) peel, and some light vanilla. Taste is like a Flemish sour but with more yeast and esters with extra carbonation. Finish is slightly sour and tart with some spice aftertaste.

3.2
badgerben (5324) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Murky copper color with a thick head. Musty coriander aroma and something almost smells pickled. The taste is extremely bitter and puckering right away. Dry wheat and lots of spices. I almost think I can taste cranberries.

3.4
tyler_mn (2464) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2007
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.

4.3
JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2007
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.

3.2
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.
