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.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2017 Pours a hazy orange/amber color with small white head and spots of lacing. Aroma is has brett, peach, lemon, apricot and coriander, Taste is medium sour with hops coming out in the finish. Body is light to medium with a silky mouthfeel. This one is complex and refreshing, and doesn't hit you over the head.

750ml bottle. A gushing bottle. Hazy yellow amber beer, small frothy white head. Nose is bretty, apricots, yeast notes, fruits. Flavor is fruity and slightly sour, pretty dry and fruity, coriander. Crisp and dry finish, woody notes, something like hoppy bitterness in the finish. Nice balance of fruitiness and sourness.

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.

anstei (2610) - 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.
