One of the more straight-up sour smelling beers I’ve... smelled. A grinning slap in the face. Both cheeks. Beautiful, rare coloring and all the looks a beer needs. Fruity, fruity, SOUR flavor that permeates the palate. Overall, a beer that’s worth about 4391 miles of travel and more. myxologyst66 (10) - lahaina, Hawaii, USA - AUG 23, 2013
A barrel aged blended sour ale with Maui lilikoi and bing cherries from Michigan. Fruity floral aroma, rich ruby red color with a complex sour fruit taste and tart dry finish. Perfectly balanced with a lingering sourness that leaves u wanting more. Ron had told me this beer gets even better after a year and after tasting a batch of the blend 8-2012 I agree 100%.

Aroma is cherries, tart apple, oak, and floral notes. Apperance is mahogany, good clarity. Flavor is cherry, sour apple, oak, earth, and herbal spice. Medium body, good carbonation. Overall a excellent beer. DocLock (10728) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2012
750 from PUB’R via one of my infantrymen, King I’Wana’Layawife, who was gratuitized generously for his diligence. The pour here is turbid, thick, and dark maple orangy color, with minimal off-white head. Nose is huge tangerine and pineapple juice, resiny piney hops, some funky sour mashy fruit. Tastes extremely tart and gueuezy, with sour mashy cherry fruity notes, huge tangerine, pineapple, black pepper, and funky lactosy malt. This one is like a gueuze/tropical IIPA hybrid with a Hawaiian flair, and is downright delicious. Pailhead (6541) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2012
On tap: The aroma consists tart cherries, lemon, spice, oak, and faint vanilla. It’s a hazy amber with a small beige head that leaves behind minimal webbing for lacing. The flavor starts with a quick dose of tart cherries that is quickly overtaken by sour lemon with some light acidity. The sour lemon lingers in the finish and mixes with some light oak. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2013 Amber color, with a touch of pink. Less head than most Jolly Pumpkin brews. Cherries dominated aroma, but taste was mostly sour. Lemon like. Pepper showed up in after-taste.
Rerated after having 1 year old bottle. More sour lemon taste and big enduring head! DoublEE (782) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Tart fruity notes, somewhat indistinct but acidic and juicy, overall a vague tropical impression (which seems to be what the collaboration was going for). Mellow feel, aftertaste of light dry woodiness, typical of JP's output. Overall cohesive and pleasant.

750 mL bottle, Blend 10 bottled 5/24/12, courtesy of northernbrews. Thanks! Pours a hazy rust color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. The tart cherry and funk notes in the aroma blend extremely well, along with notes of grapes and currants. The taste is very similar but with an earthy note also. Medium bodied. Exceptional beer. podey (638) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle. Batch 7 bottled 05-16-2012. Pours clear reddish amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is sour cherry, tropical fruit and some nice funkiness. Taste is beautiful; tart cherry, limes, ruby grapefruit and some yeast. Balance is excellent between sour and slightly sweet. Really enjoyed this beer. jale (11) - Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2012 Had on tap at the pub in Ann Arbor. Amber in color. Smell is Passion fruit, tart cherry and that great J.P. barnyard funk. Taste is tart passion fruit to start followed by cherries and some tobacco. Really drinkable.
