UPDATED: AUG 15, 2008 Bottle. Nice pour, honey colored with a foamy white head. Big sweet and spiced aroma, definite fruit (pineapple, cider), and only a hint of alcohol as it warms. Sweet up front with a peppery backdrop and very little bitterness. Floral, super faint hoppiness. Very sweet on the lips. Alcohol is hidden very well, slight yeast in the end. Dry finish. Nice, fresh mouthfeel. This is a fun beer, I think I would’ve liked it better in the summer, but I can appreciate it. I couldn’t really taste the alcohol. This is my first Jolly Pumpkin, and I can’t wait to try some more. Rerate - funky and a tiny bit sour. Soft, mushy flavors of peach and flowers. Nice beer.

Bottle. Nice spicy aroma. Pours a big head that is savored around my snifter. Golden color with little activity. Very peppery flavor with another spice (candy) mixed in. Very well balanced and pretty smooth despite a slight alcohol burn. Finishes well and makes my mouth want more. Cheers!

From bottle. Huge fluffy, cloud like white head. Poured golden yellow. Aroma was sweet. Head did leave nice lacing on the glass. Notes of sour apple, honey, and spice. Flavor very strong on the yeast with some honey in the end. I also picked up some mild sour hints. This beer is very complex, but seems to go well together. Lemon notes, pepper notes, corriander notes. Smokey notes as it warmed and still all through was strong yeasty notes. Medium mouthfeel. Well balanced. Nice beer.

Thanks to Kook! Golden orange body with a good size white head. The nose is yeasty and lemon zest. Peppery in the taste without overpowering the flavour, light to medium body, more fruit coming through, easier to drink than the previous Biere de Garde tasted on the night.

750 mL bottle... we have a gusher! After it exploded all over my counter, it poured an effervescent medium golden with a solid cap of white head. Nose was bright with sour lemon zest, old musty blanket, and peppery alcohol. The flavor maintained the brew’s sensory assault with a heavy and sour funky citrus blast, vinegar feel on the tip of the tongue, sweet grainy/wheaty malts across the middle, and peppery alcohol as it glides down the throat. Carbonation remained high, but still allowed the brew to methodically stop for every necessary taste bud... long, warm spicy citrus finish. Excellent as usual from JP!

Another jolly pumpkin winner. 5 finger head. Quite a lomony wheaty smell bursting with the sam flavor. Beautiful light golden haze.

My 700th beer.<P> 750. Gusher. Beer is murky, bright copper-gold colored with a larger. white, frothy, mostly diminishing head. Small halo of particulates in the bottom of the snifter.<P> The aroma made me wag my tail upon impact. It’s malty with moderate notes of toasted grain, light note of caramel, french fries; Hoppy with a moderate-to-heavy note of lemon zest, light tarragon-like herb and a gentle floral bouquet; Yeasty with light notes of barnyard, sweat; trace of purfumed soap; Miscellaneous notes include a trace of vanilla-tinted tropical fruit, and light-to-moderate notes of white vinosity, alcohol.<P> The flavor is moderately sweet, trace bitter, moderately acidic/dry/sour with a long, lightly sweet, light-to-moderately acidic finish.<P> The body is light-to-medium, the texture is velvety and the carbonation is lively.
