look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75
Whitey yellow color with a huge mushroom aired head with eternal retention. Some floating particles.
Nice funky aroma, notes of lemon, horse mantle and a mild on yeast.
Mouth brings an elegant tart flavor of lemons, green pears, biscuit malt, green apples and nectarines. Hints of Brett and dry aftertaste.
Light body that almost vanishes on an explosion of carbonation. Slightly acid sensation.
Very good brew. A tart Farmhouse ale that is not too biased to yeast and it is not really sweet. Utterly refreshing and not aggressive, I could easily drink it a whole afternoon.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Batch 160. Bottled 08/14/13.
A: Cloudy golden yellow body with a towering 3 fingers of rocky, white head. Good retention. Light lacing.
S: Yeast and funk. Lactic acid. Hay. Lemon. Soil and earth. Nice.
T: Tart and musty up front. A balancing hop bitterness develops. Finishes very dry. Lingering sour and earth on the finish. No significant alcohol. A twinge of sweetness somewhere in the middle.
M: Moderate to high carbonation with light, spritzy body. Nice saison character.
O: My first Jolly Pumpkin. Legit, I'd say. Saison by way of gueze. Dig it. I'll seek out more.

Pour is hazed golden amber with a tight white head. Nose is hoppy and juicy, clean grain, juicy golden fruits, and a light dustiness. Grains are more in the forefront, clean. Dusty yeast, juicy golden fruits, extremely strong carbonation on a light body. Pear, lemon, nice integration and bright flavors but the carb takes a hint away from the finish.
Serving type: on-tap
