A: Yellow and hazy. Light bubbles.

S: Tart lemons and orange peel.

T: Floral and piney (not in the IPA kind of way per se), lemon juice, orange, some yeast, bright grape flavor like a wine.

M: Light and bubbly. Very nice.

O: Awesome beer! On tap I had this one, but in the store I know it can be quite pricey...

I had this beer for the first time at the Publick House in Boston earlier this year and loved it. I really wish Jolly Pumpkin was easier to get in Virginia!
A: Yellow, golden color; fairly clear; weak head
S: Notes of banana, pineapple, green apple
M: Good carbonation, light body, clean
T: This is a strongly sour beer with crisp citrus and spicy notes. There were also notes of pineapple and green apple. Something about the beer put me in the mind of champagne.

Would love to trade for this beer!

750 ml poured into a JP goblet.

A: Very pale straw color with a bright white head that doesn't linger around much.

S: Lightly tart, hay, earthy hops. Nice spicy yeast character with good lemony notes. Smells refreshing.

T: Gentle tartness. Very citrus and a delicious Brett character with a nice malt breadiness. Brett character is almost like a very lightly tart geuze, very lambic like brett character. Yum!

M: Nice and dry with a great lingering Brett character that molds well with the slight malt character.

O: An amazing summer day drinking farmhouse brew. The brett character is present and add so much body to the beer. Amazing, give it a try if you can get a hold of it.

Not sure when or where I first had this, but it was on tap at the Khyber, so I figured I'd revisit it and give a rating.

Served in a tulip, hazy, bright golden color, with a thin cap of bubbly white head that retained as a collar, and left light lacing on the glass. In the nose, toasted wheat, lemony lacto, light grassy funk. The aroma was reflected in the taste, lemon-apple-lacto tartness that was ever-present yet pretty mellow, toasted wheat, light barnyard funk, and some sugary sweetness in the background. Somewhere between a saison and a Berliner weisse. Body was light-medium, mouthfeel was crisp and dry, and while the flavor wasn't incredibly bold, this sure was an easy drinker. Nice beer overall.
