750ml - Aroma tells me "this is a Jolly Pumpkin beer" which always gets me excited. Funky sour with spicy yeast, banana and clove. Flavor doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. It still has the spicy yeast, banana and clove. Missing the funk. Palate is creamy with a crisp tart finish. Another winner from JP. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Golden color with a small head. Aroma is sour, citrus and a hint of spice and yeast. Flavor if bright and citrus a little sour and pretty good. Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Cask. Pours a golden body with a light white head. Sweet fruity wheat notes with a light sour lemongrass and hints of banana bubblegum spices. Thin and session able. Good call. MullMan (1099) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2009
On cask at Rattle N’ Hum NYC. very cloudy straw/yellow gold body, no head. Aroma is brett, sour wheat malt, and bubblegum. Flavor is tart and sour yet smooth and slick mouthfeel. Low carbonation (cask) and a bit of funk, much like a wheaty saison/sour and then a slightly bitter finish like grapefruit juice. vtafro (7444) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - SEP 6, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2009 Tap @ Rattle ’N’ Hum. Golden pour. Has a subtle sour aroma with mostly wheat. Flavor only has slight sour tinge, along with the farmhouse flavor.

Chalky dry and sour tart. Lemon juice flavor. Soft lemon aroma. Note much wheat notes, hidden tart. joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2009
hazy golden appearance with large white head, interesting combination of weizen and belgian esters to the nose. very high carbonation. a reasonable hop bitterness, followed by belgian fruitiness followed by some grainy wheat malt and some mild banana/cloves flavor, the finish is not as dry as many jolly pumpkin brews, but is rather dry. good beer from a unique brewery phaleslu (10673) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2009
22 oz. bottle from Ludlow Wines in Cincinnati. Pours cloudy pale yellow with active carbonation and frothy white head. Aroma of lemon, banana, and spice. Tart, sweet flavor of lemon, banana, spice, yeast, metallic notes. Crisp, refreshing, light mouthfeel. Short, sweet, sour/tart finish. Very nice summer brew, excellent session beer.

I shared a bottle of this with BeerBaron617 on the night before he left for Basic Training. For such occasion, this beer didn’t disappoint.
This beer pours an almost greenish yellow color. It was very cloudy, and had a big fluffy white head. The aroma is not like any of the Jolly Pumpkin beers we’ve had before. Actually, this is one of the first beers that I have gotten a real banana aroma...Usually Belgians are more typical of this aroma, but It’s all here in this beer.
It almost seems like Jolly did more with this beer to make it less Jolly, and more "Wheat Beer"...I mean, Jolly typically does their beer in their own signature way, and this beer seems more like what you would typically get from a German Hefeweizen...at least with aroma :)
Now taste, that’s a different story. Typical Jolly Pumpkin all the way. Highly carbonated, sour, clove, and it has a creamy mouthfeel. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Bottle: Very pale yellow, thick and cloudy, large white fluffy head, a few rings of lacing.   Tart nose, very musty, slightly floral.   This smells like a cross between a Saison and a Biere de Garde.   Not very German Hefe like.   Even has aspects of a Sour Ale.   Quite a tart beer, a little sweet, minor wood character.   Even though this is nothing like a German Hefe, it is tasty in its own right.
