Clareeses (160) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 14, 2017
On draft at Hop Cat. Pours opaque brown, little head. Plum esters in the nose. Taste is sour and fruity (plum, raisin), finishes with a little bit of plum skin flavor. Really drinkable and unique wild ale - Another great one by Jolly Pumpkin! tmzl (367) - SLOVENIA - FEB 14, 2017

Keg in BrewDog, Newcastle. Ruby with a thin cream head. The taste is sour with dry spice, red fruits and some warming booze. Apple skin dryness. Decent. evergreen0199 (3492) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Keg at Brewdog Shepherds Bush, London. A hazy amber/brown coloured pour with a thin off white head on top. Sour, yeasty, spice aroma. Tastes rather similar, sour, fruity, yeasty, spice. Not really my style of beer but I can still appreciate the quality of this one.
The_Osprey (9148) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Keg at Brewdog as Jolly Pumpkin Maracaibo Especial, 7.5%. Hazy murky brown, almost opaque, foamy light brown head. Aroma is digestive biscuits up front, some light toffee and wafer. Body is fairly light, tingly carbonation and a touch frothy. Taste is quite fruity, in contrast to the aroma. Fig and raisin, sugary, prunes, a touch salty. Quite sweet but dries out into the finish. Decent enough. Probably the least impressive of the JP beers I tried today. leaparsons (10765) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2017
Keg, Brewdog Leicester. Red brown with a thin foam. Plummy, figgy with red wine vinous character. Orange rind with mixed spices. Bready with toffee malts. Cherry stone with a tart, usual Jolly Pumpkin cheesiness. Green apple. Dry cocoa finish. Very good. john44 (3400) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2017

Fruity; orange citrus, peel, cherries, dark fruit notes. Vinous and a bit syrupy. Spicy, cinnamon. Bittersweet slightly sour malty fruity spicy throughout. Nice! (2016-10-06)

1200th rate and it didn’t work out. I will avoid this brewer; second brew that is over soured. if they would just say that it would #*# help. nice pour, aroma had a few things going on - no chocolate - taste was just tart up front with carbonation - not what I like or was looking for....

75 cl bottle, served in tulip. Poured a clear amber brown with an two finger light tan head. Lively carbonation as well as bits of yeast in glass. Aroma: funk, barnyard, green apples, orange peel, citrus, cherries, caramel. Taste: orange peel, tart, citrus, caramel, toffee, cherries, bread, raisins, apricots, grannie smith apples, blood orange, burnt brown sugar, some cinnamon, hazelnuts. Cacao was not present until the the yeast from the bottom of the bottle was poured into the glass. I really swirled the bottle to get all the yeast out. And this changed the beer into murky hazelnut brown with more malty chocolate flavours coming to the foreground. The last bit of yeast on the bottom of the bottle really made the difference for me. Where the sourness dominated in the beginning it is now more in balance with the malts. Medium sourness. Medium body with a long, nice tart and spicy finish. Very good!
