look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Batch 1257/1258, bottled Nov 21, 2012. The nose is a lot funkier than I was expecting from a farmhouse ale, but if I remember correctly, all of Jolly Pumpkin’s ales are sour/wild in some way. There are tart fruit scents, green grapes, granny smith apples, cherries, spices like clove and cinnamon, roasty malts, some earthiness, old leather and a bit of a hay/farmhouse funk.

The taste is pretty surprising after the nose. Its a lot more powerful with a lot of citrus, some white wine, green grapes, some woody, earthy funk, sharp, peppery spiciness, lavender, a hidden background thread of roasted malts and a tart, dry finish.

The body on this is light, as you’d expect from a saison/farmhouse ale, with a ton of carbonation and dry finish. What a fantastic brew. This is my second experience with Jolly Pumpkin and I continue to be impressed.
