December 16th, 2013 - Jolly Pumpkin and Maui Brewing must have put in some serious air miles to get this done, but the product is a fine sassy potion, cramming essence of cranberry into every milliliter. Enjoyed at home, I popped the top to find the cranberry scent quickly unfurling itself like a genie, colonizing the room and settling in for the whole bottle’s drinking time. It’s a sour scent with tons of raspberry and cherry, with a tang (distinct from the sour) but it is largely defined by its own acerbic quality. The taste leads with more of the tang, behind which a collection of fruit flavors gather - pomegranate, cranberry and tangerine. It’s not too sweet, instead stuffed with cranberries. That bitter-acidic sweetness doesn’t last long either, blooming then quickly wilting, leaving the beer demanding another sip. It’s not too bright, just acidic, with each intake screwing up the face and lips a bit. But in a good way. A human way. ICEatALAMO (1353) - Troy, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Blend 4. The pour is a muted ruby color. The aroma is vinegar and flowers. The taste is sour and a little bland. Don't get much oak from it.

Bottle. Darker amber, off-white head. Tart berries and cherry vibes on the nose at first. Funkyness and vinegar notes are present too. Quite nice actually. Lemons, some straw and dry sour berries in taste. Tart and funky finish. No need for further rant here, it’s just simply good and delicious brew. Time to enjoy the rest of the bottle.

Bottled. Pours slightly hazy, pale amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of brett, caramel, citrus and woody notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Medium bodied, oily texture and flat carbonation. A very nice Sour. Beer5000 (6731) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2015
750 ml bottle. Deep golden body with a small, dense off-white head. Quite fresh and fruity aroma with some malt and some funkiness. Flavor is both sweet and sour with mild malt, citric fruit, some acidity and funk. Fine body and aftertaste. Another nice and well balanced creature from JP. tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle: Opaque amber, red-ish tints all around. Small, off-white head dissipates quickly, leaving the top of the beer bare. Aroma of sour & musty fruits. Cherry, citrus, lemon, mild tropical notes, sour pineapple. Some heavy must & cellar floor funk in the background. Bright, heavy citrus flavors hit the palate up front; sour, tart, & backed by a strong acetic character. The sourness mellows out eventually into a softer sweetness that seems accompanied by more of a tropical fruit essence; tangerine, pineapple, maybe mango? Something tropical. Mild vinegar & a touch of sour lacto. Wet wood & lingering oak in the finish with a hint of barnyard hay. Really tasty. Had another bottle maybe 8 months later & at wasn’t nearly as sour. More sweet. Surprising, as I thought it would be the opposite. wedgie9 (2703) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 2, 2014
From notes. Tasted some time near the summer of 2012 from a capped 750mL bottle obtained in a trade. Pours hazy burnt orange with a thin white head that leaves thin, sticky lace. The nose is signature JP funk with orange pith, a lightly acetic white wine vinegar note, spicy hibiscus, and just a touch of vanilla oak. The flavor is nicely sour with tons of lemon, orange, white peppercorn, hibiscus, funk, and light touch of oak. The body is medium with some tannin, average carbonation, and a long sour and spicy peppercorn and hibiscus finish.
