beerplace (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2016
On tap at St. Augustines on Rare Beer Tap Takeover. Fruity, spices aroma and taste with hippy bitterness. Like a hybrid of Flemish, Saison and Sour Ale. Pleasant.

9th July 2016: on-tap in the NaparBCN Brewpub with the RBESG guys. Another American beer a long way from home, found in Barcelona. Off-white head on an autumnal orange body. Fruity nose with sour pointers, taste had a bit of spiciness within the semi-sour fruity flavours. Liked it.

On tap at Mikkeller & Friends, march 26th 2016. Amber body with a small white head. Aroma of curned malt, lactic, with old oranges and cardamom. Taste is sour, not as intense as many JP’s, probably partly due to a sweet chocolate and caramel note, with fruity esters. Sharp bretty finish. A bit different from many sours, though it’s no doubting it’s a Jolly Pumpkin.

Dark copper color with a heavily lacing white head. Aroma is sour wood. Flavor is sour church but the finish is quick and lightly bitter.

Maakun (5560) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2016 Tap during RBESG16. Hazy reddish light brown. Plastic, sour overripe fruit, glue, bitter leaves and spices. Under medium sour and bitter, light sweet. Medium bodied. 3.2

Update: Tap at Jolly Pumpkin Detroit. Still a bit of weird plastic spices, cinnamon, lemon. It seems better now, but still the spices and sourness don’t really mix.

Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2016
0.75l bottle shared @ Inbreak. Quite a dark cloudy one this, deep dark orange colored with him a nice lacing small off-white head in the top. Interesting noce. Lots of dandelion and quite a nice sweetness. Hints of cocoa and chocolate combined with the woody arch typical Jolly aroma. Orange vinegar and marmalade. Lots of marmalade. Smells quite nice this. Milder in the taste, but really refreshing. Thin oily in the mouth and it’s really prickling on the allow average carbonation level. Bitterish also, dandelion and quick finish. Quite good. 30.03.2015

alteregoo (1445) - Kalisz, POLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Po nalaniu do szkła tworzy się drobna, zwarta piana, obfita i trwała, ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Barwa czerwono rubinowa, lekko mętna. Aromat budzi skojarzenia z czerwoną porzeczką, czerwonym winem, ciemnym winogronem, drewnem i rodzynkami. W smaku kwaskowo winne, półwytrawne, sporo nut taninowych, dębowych, beczkowych (ale czystych, bez waniliowych naleciałości) oraz nut czerwonych owoców, może karmelu. Pojawiają się także przyprawowe smaczki, delikatne kandyzowane morele, wiśnie, migdały... Kakao, cynamon i skórka pomarańczy stanowią jakiś marginalny, ledwo wyczuwalny dodatek zapachowo-smakowy. Goryczka niska, pestkowa. Wysycenie średnie, drobne, półpełne z niewyczuwalnym alkoholem.
Niezwykle szlachetny trunek, faktycznie w odbiorze jest to bardziej Sour Brown Ale niż BSA. Ogólnie jestem pod wrażeniem - nieźle pijalne, złożone i kompleksowe piwo, blisko spokrewnione z drogim czerwonym winem.

Even toned rusty brown, with a bit of white head. Aroma is rich and tart, and taste is a tiny bit of a letdown after the aroma, but it's very drinkable. Dan ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
