The pour is hazy orange with a nice white head. The nose is typical jolly pumpkin yeast smell, cirtrus, wood, vinegar funk. The taste is high sweet, medium high tart and low bitter. The texture is sharp and clean, the body is light with a long finish. Not bad at all. tom10101 (6135) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by BeerGolem, thanks! Golden/orange with a medium white head and good lacing. Aroma of citrus, funk, Jolly Pumpkin presence here (!), fruits and Belgian yeast. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with citrus, oak, funky notes, slight underlying malt presence and nice fruity notes. Medium body. Drinkable and refreshing, but also quite complex for a low abv Belgian Ale. Loved it! podey (638) - New York, New York, USA - APR 7, 2013

750mL thanks to jtclockwork. Hazy orange pour. Weaker head than expected. Wispy white lacing. Nose is extreme Brett B smackdown. Oval esque with fresh cedar, bright farmhouse hay and leather. Taste is lighter, lemon tea. Refreshing, lactic. Fresh and light bodied. Great Orval clone. jtclockwork (16685) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 6, 2013

Bottle at Monks Cafe. Unusual clear pink orange pour with some lasting foam. Bottled Feb-25-2010. Had this before but this feels completely different due to the aging with Brett. Sensing light peach and cherry flavors that were not there in the fresh versions. Delicate yet pronounced. French oak notes. I have had a billion beers yet this one feels completely unique. Like it quite a bit. I Suspect with Jolly Pumpkin involved the variation is such that, even should I have this vintage again, it might taste very different. To this particular bottle, I was most impressed! wlajwl (6873) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Aroma is Belgian sugar, sharp tartness and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is sour ale-like tart fruit, malts, a hint of bubble gum and a tangy finish. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Bottled 3-12-2012. Smells and tastes like La Roja. Nice funk and just a touch biscuit. Funky leather. Medium body. Super dry. Dunt (316) - Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle brought over by Todd. This is the only one from them I havent tried. Pours a cloudy orange in color. Not much head on the pour and very minimal lacing. Nose is vegetal and bretty, it’s actually pretty gross. Flavor is pretty bland, it’s lightly spiced, somewat bretty, and lightly tart. It’s pretty watery and insignficant in flavor. Mouthfeel is light, watery, carbonation is low, and a short finish. This is 2 years old and it definitely tastes like it. I love seeing Good Harbor and thought this was going to be decent, it was pretty awful. Still cool to finally get a chance to try it. lachrymalisis (441) - Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 this beer is quintessential of what I perceive to be the defining characteristics of Leelanau Brewing. tart green apple and mineral rain water nose, rounding out to oaky earth and fresh orchard air. Taste is tart, smooth golden fruits, oak, and amazing mineral notes that taste like fresh rain in an orchard. beautiful and memorable.
