On tap at Jolly Pumpkin Ann Arbor. Pours golden with tall white head that settles after a while and leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is orchard fruit, funk, oak, and some pepper. Taste is tart, spicy, funky, and slightly malty. Medium bodied, creamy texture, medium-high but soft carbonation, dry and slightly puckering tart finish.

Citrous bouquet with a mellow aftertaste, refreshing with a subtle spicy undertone. I enjoyed this product and I will recommend this with such entrees as fish, chicken, or spicy pork.

A: Pale yellow, mostly opaque. Moderate thickness, large white head that appears and recedes to a finger's width quickly, strong suds that rise steadily.

S: Moderate lemon, light sour and sweet.

T: Medium citrus with a moderate sour bite, lightly sweet. Light alcohol taste for the ABV.

M: Moderately viscous and crisp.

O: Refreshingly fruity and sour. Reminds of Sprite /w lemon juice, with slight alcohol aftertaste.

T- Sour, Lemons, Citrus, not overpowering though
F- Smooth, lightly carbonated
O- Very good sour beer. Not too sweet. Grabbed a 25 oz bottle while my girlfriend had a fruit beer of some acclaim and this was actually fruitier than her's.

Amazing balance in this sour beer. The appearance, smell, and mouthfeel are second only to the taste. Another Jolly Pumpkin masterpiece.

750ml bottle served in a tulip. Batch 1308, 1322, 1328, 1329, 1334, 1335 - bottled on 05-31-2013 indicated on the bottle. Pours a bright honey-gold hue with a translucent clarity, a rocky two inch, bright white head and copious tiny bubbles present effervescing in solution from the base of the glass to the underside of the cap. Head eventually settles into a 1/4 inch lid with beautiful spots and swaths of textured lacing coating the walls of the glass. Interesting note - buttery oak notes, a spicy/peppery quality and wet grass. Taste follows nose with the addition of an herbal/medicinal quality as well as a slight sour mash quality towards the back. Mouthfeel is light in body with a bright carbonation and a pleasant acidity. Overall - a wonderful beer. Very appealing to look at in the glass and the oak in the nose is quite wonderful. I'm generally not a biere de garde fan but I found this quite enjoyable.
