750 mL bottle, bottled 6-29-11,
A: We've got a gusher, a big one. The first pour is almost all head. Once it comes down it reveals a light gold beer, cloudy and translucent. Good head retention, though on the fizzy side, spotty lace.
S: Farmhouse, Bretty/earthy smell, hay, light spice.
T: Lots of lemons and grass. Has an unsweetened lemonade aspect which is interesting. Tangy wheat flavour is exceptional, Bretty finish, really good.
M: Light-bodied, very refreshing, crisp but ultimately soft carbonation, dry/brut overall, light acidity makes it very approachable.
O: This is a great summer seasonal if they bring it back. Low ABV, thirst quenching, more so than Bam Biere, I think the wheat helps a lot. The $10 price tag is annoying, I'd love it at $6-7 since it isn't high gravity, but it's well worth a purchase.

pours a crazy hazy light orange peach sort of color, with a thin white head that fades to a ring rather quickly. nice bretty nose. the funk dominates, sort of gueuze-like, though it never quite attains that sharp zest, though there are some lemony notes, and a bit of ginger ale. tastes surprisingly like a hefeweizen! the banana/clove section isn’t playing as loudly, but the taste is mostly a normal, eminently drinkable wheat beer. wheat malt, some hefe esters, and a hint of funk lurking around the edges. the finish is the best part. slightly dry, with a perfect almost creamy, but noticeably bubbly mouthfeel. no real bitterness or sweetness standing out. great, refreshing beer.

Had a 10 ounce snifter of this.
A-Huge white foamy head that was a little much with this yellow color that is a bit urine like with a lot of carbonation. To me I thought it looked like urine with alka selzer.
S-Smells like hay, grass, and lemon.
T-Pretty average taste. Not very sour but sour enough where it is not enjoyable. Very herbal and lemony with this grass like taste with an almost creamy aftertaste. There was even a little orange and coriander.
M-Nice carbonation, lots of it. Probably the best thing about this beer.
O-This probably was the least enjoyable beer I have had from jolly pumpkin. A real waste of money and just not that special.

First pour erupted into all head, white, and subsequent pours gave a half inch. Body is a hazy lemonade yellow. Smells primarily sour and then the follow-up is the traditional spice, banana, clove of the style. Taste mirrors the smell and I have to say the sour is 2 folds stronger than all the rest of the flavors. Body feels rich and quality, better than other wheats. But the sour aspect just is not my thing.

Big thanks to RBlaszak for sending me this bottle.
The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of funky wheat along with some apples and lemons. The funk and tartness in the aroma are very inviting.
The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of tart lemons and sour apples, as well as some wheat and some barnyard funk. There is also some yeast character in the flavor that is pretty nice. The beer is very easy drinking and is very dry.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
