From notes on November 13, 2012.

From a 750 ml bottle (dated 2-1-12) into a tulip.

A-This beer poured with a fluffy, two-finger head of shiny, off-white foam. The beer was cloudy and orange-tinted. I could see a few streams of carbonation through the murk.

S-The smell was slightly sour lemon and funky wet hay and grass (just like you would expect from Jolly Pumpkin...). Had a bit of a brett component to it.

T-The taste was pretty mild with some of the same funky, brett-like flavors that showed up in the smell. There is also lemon, light pepper spice, and hay. Flavors are pretty well-integrated, but a bit feeble.

F-Carbonation is noticeable, but not huge. The beer is lighter to medium bodied.

O-I was slightly disappointed with the mild flavor, but then I realized that this brew has half the ABV of many of the other beers I was comparing it against and it clicked why the flavors were less intense. Keeping that thought in mind, I would drink this again on a hot summer day or as a session-type beer. As a stand-alone, however, this brew is a little light on taste for me.
