Dogbrick (11855) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Sample at the Ann Arbor brewpub. Slightly hazy straw color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily to a film. Short strings of lace. Spice, tart fruit, yeast and malt aromas. Medium body with flavors of funky fruit, oak, coriander, yeast and malt. The finish is funky citrus and peppery yeast. Pretty good all around.

Une belle blonde paille, voilée et coiffée d’une mousse immaculée, toutefois éphémère. Poivré, fruité, de douces arômes de levures sauvages et rustiques seraient des particularités qui brossent bien le portrait du bouquet. L’effervescence, intense, picote la langue avant qu’on puisse détecter, et ce, pas aisément, les subtilités des saveurs. C’est acidulé, comme le citron. C’est aussi allègrement poivré et une légère amertume s’installe en arrière-goût. (Emb. 03/09/16 Blend 3) (1943-190816)

cagou007 (1080) - FRANCE - AUG 15, 2016
Pours hazy yellow with very thin white head. Nose is tart and spicy. Huge tart and sour taste. Aromas are spices (pepper), herbal hops, alcohol, farmhouse yeast. Lively carbonation, light body. Long sour and peppery finish. Weird balance between sourness and bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (4424) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Heavyweight 375 ml bottle served in a Belgian snifter. This "Gold of Pumpkin" ale has an obvious wild yeast component which I find interesting and acceptable in the flavor, but overbearing and unappealing in the aroma. Moderate oak barrel influence. Mildly bitter and tart. Excellent, lively mouthfeel.

On tap at St. Augustines on Rare Beer Tap Takeover. Fruity, spicy, hoppy, refreshing. Very good.

Bulk_Carrier (4103) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JUL 16, 2016
This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a burnt crisp yellow color with a thin white cap of a white head. Mild thin lacing. The smell starts off with some bright sweet citrus, peppercorn, dry floral qualities, white pepper, light wood. The flavor is sharply sweet with pronounced dry floral qualities hitting nicely. Spice kicks on in on the aftertaste. Quick semi-sweet dry finish. Appropriate bitterness hits my tongue. Overall, another fantastic offering by Jolly Pumpkin.
