3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured pale orange with a ton of carbonation. It was almost Chanpagne like. Smells of citrus and the acidic tones of cider. Has a distinct lemon flavor. The hops aren’t very noticeable except a little bitterness. Very refreshing beer with the carbonation. The bottle was a year and a half old so the flavor profile of a new batch would probably be significantly different.
A small taste from a bottle @ Matinkylä. OKS cellar tasting. Pours hazy golden with a huge head. Escaped from the bottle. Aroma sweet and sour malts with some candy fruits. Flavor is sour malts, fruits, some hops. Pretty good. Dorita (51) - SPAIN - AUG 9, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2017 Light amber colour and white head. Fruity and spicy aroma. Farmhouse yeast, sour and hoppy. Nice beer Hopper8 (210) - Holland, Michigan, USA - MAY 13, 2017
I liked this beer and it’s really interesting. The spicy/sourness of the Grand Cru tradition compliment the hops in a very interesting and bold way. I think I prefer the oak aged sour in other iterations more and it is likely costing my rating of the beer. That being said for a hoppier pale ale, the sourness and spice of the beer go along to really make this a nice sipper. Jolly Pumpkin continues to be one of my favorite breweries.

0,75 litre Bottle ordered from systembolaget, at home. Dark Golden, Nice fruity aroma. Pretty Good stuff! anstei (2467) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 14, 2017
Bottle, once bought at Erzbierschof Liebefeld, bottled 03/11/14. Pours clear amber, but a huge gusher. Slightly oxidized, but aroma is otherwise little stables and funk, flowers. Body is medium, quite bitter, but with a decent sweetness. Super balanced, beautiful fruit. Medium fruity palate. Light, refreshing, yet complex and interesting. Very good.

White wine oak, light vinegar, spicy, vanilla, brett funk, light acidity, light noble hop finish, light bitterness. Borup (14982) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2017
66 cl. bottle. Hazy orange colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of yeast, spice, hops, fruit, oak and acidic. jinroh (2013) - ESTONIA - DEC 5, 2016
Pours cloudy orange, some beige foam that is coming down slowly. Aroma is autumny, nice colored leaves, apple peels and yes, I am getting also tropical fruits, papaya and a bit of mango. Little horse blanket from the brett. Taste is a bit prickly bitter and sourness is also strong. Apple peel bitterness, if it makes any sense. Would be just perfect with lemon tart. Body has become a bit watery with time but still great.

Hazy light medium amber. Sour nose with bread and the spice rack has been dumped in with lots of grains of paradise, and fennel I think. Sour mouth, tons of spicy with aggressive bitter finish. Very interesting but a but all over the place. Lots of fennel finish. Interesting.
