Classic ’Pumpkin. Strong on the acetic sour side, but with a subtly fruity flavor. Delicious and refreshing.

Bomber thanks to someone! A Christmas miracle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a medium white head. A nice fruity nose with cherries and wood. The flavor has tart sawdust, sour cherries, sweeter tropical notes, vinous at times, some light Brett comes in. Good.

2nd favorite of the night in a terrific sours line up. Lively carbonation, pinkish brown, pretty persistent lacing. Man, this blow’s Maui’s half of the collaboration away. Earthy papaya flesh nose along with lemon citrus and some brett. Bit thin, but carbonation really livens it up. Great passionfruit and strawberry guava flavors with some neutral wood and tart lemon finish. Takes me back to picking them fresh off the tree on a hike on the Na Pali Coast. Need to see if there is any more of this kicking around locally.

Bottle at home with my wife. Appearance is murky amber, with a light pink tint and a frothy, off-white head; good lacing. Somewhat funky, cherry, fruity aroma with lighter notes of oak, cranberries, light vinous, and tannin. Taste is lightly sour, nicely refined with touches of strawberres, raspberries, peach, passionfruit, wood, light vinegar, some orange and grapefruit juice with a lightly tart finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Highly drinkable beer with awesome fruit notes, a touch of brett and not over-the-top sourness. Nice beer and much better than the Maui version.

Bottle pours a cloudy amber with a medium khaki head. Bright aroma of tropical fruits, prickly sweet, berries, and balanced brett. Taste is tart cherries, brett, slight barrel presence, and tropical fruit, nice sourness until the finish which is kind of flat and empty. Pretty nice except for the finish which was a let down.

Bottle. Hazy iced tea look to this. How did I manage to get almost no head when pouring this beer? I’m not impressed with my pour. A bit more sour and acidic smelling than what I normally get from jolly pumpkin beers. Good amount of funky cheese, lemon, and raspberry. Makes my nose tingle. A bit thin bodied, but damn does it have a sour punch towards the finish. Bile, raspberry, lots of acid. Good. Not as dry as most JP beers, and this focuses more on sour aspects.

Blend 7 batch, bottled 05/16/2012. Pours ruby brown, moderate head with decent lacing. Aroma is rich tropical passion fruit, juicy sour cherries, mildly acetic, caramel and oak. Taste is again very fruity, tart but not overly sour- tropical notes, berries, cherries- sour grains, barnyard character, woody. Light, juicy body. Not bad at all, light and fruity.
