This one pours out to a brownish-amber in the glass with a huge, brown, candied sugar looking head. The aroma is that of plums and light fruit. The taste is superb, with raisin, anise and caramel all coming to the forefront. The bottle of this went down almost too easy, thus showing off its incridble drinkability.
Jolly Pumpkin beers are such a gem. I feel lucky to be able to get beer this good so close to home.

On tap at Winos in BG. I had this beer a while back, but just getting around to entering the review. Boring day at work.
A. Light mahogany with dark amber hues. Translucent. Poured a thick, fine bubble egg shell head that retreats to a frothy rim. Strong laces. Healthy head.
S. Traditional JP yeast. Neutral oak, light malts. Bretts.
T. Medium to light tartness. Medium roasted malts. Neutral oak. Fairly simple flavor.
O. Smooth, medium body, medium body.
O. This is a very straight-forward, lightly sour ale. I usually pass on browns, but this is not your typical brown. This is a sour, no doubt. This has session written in BIG LETTERS. I go for this every summer, but this can be enjoyed any season.
Serving type: on-tap
