I hate to give any beer a perfect rating, But this one does not fault in any category... Juiciest sour ever created by a commercial brewery. I tried this on tap and in bottles at Great Lakes Coffee in Detroit back in January. I believe the tap version to be a bit more on the puckering end, whereas the bottled version has developed some malty flavors at this point. The canned version by Maui brewing is not sour.

A - Holds a beautiful deep-red hue with a two-finger head that lasts for as long as you can milk this brew. The glass is laced with white legs running down the side as you swirl the liquids inside.

S -Cherries, passion fruit, oak, and the signature JP barnyard funk

T - Same as the smell with a puckering sour taste. very juicy. Can definitely taste the wood from the barrels and horseblanket from the brett.

M - Very drinkable, in fact, this beer can be too drinkable. Well-carbonated and leaves a puckering smack on your lips for hours after consumption

O - In my opinion, this is the best sour ever brewed...Having tried various other barrel-aged sours by Jolly P, Cantillon, 3Font's, RR, Bruery, Lost Abbey, etc. I believe the Jolly Pumpkin version of Sobrehumano, particularly on tap is outstanding and above the rest. If you have a chance to try it, please do so!

Split a 750 into my Russian River glass.

Pours murky red with a small brief lasting head.

Strong fruit aromas. Sour cherry and tropical fruits which I'm assuming is the liliko'i, a fruit I've never heard of. Some oak and just a mild bit of sourness. Very pleasant.

Start out with a lush tropical fruit flavor along with some sour cherries. Cherries and oak come out a bit more near the end of the palate and their presence also increasing a bit as it warms. The typical "Jolly Pumpkin funk" works very well with the tropical fruits. Finishes somewhat oaky with a unique tropical fruit juiciness. Sour, but not overly so.

Juicy mouthfeel drying a bit toward the end. Medium carbonation levels.

Fantastic! I'm not sure what a liliko'i is, but I'm pretty sure I want to eat a lot of them if the taste of this beer is any indication. A great summer patio beer with unique and delicious flavors. Looks like I'm going to be ISO a few more bottles.

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

A - Copper firm coloring, slightly turbid, very little lacing

S - Grapefruit, lemony notes like champagne, lemon skin, white peppercorn, great brett funkiness, oak barrel, leathery, some fresh strawberries, honeydew melon, sugar, vinous, grape vine; and a very, very slight touch of rye bread/carraway seed.

T/M - A real mellow tartness, smooth like fruit juice, grapefruit juice, white peppercorn, white wine, lemon, rolls over the tongue, acidic, mineral water; finishes with a real distinct vegetal quality, and IMO this beer comes the closest to that Cantillon-like barnyard, vegetal backbone, like fresh picked berries, again very vinous like grape vine, grape skin.

D - This is a homerun from JP, I would put only the grand reserves ahead of this beer. Just a wonderful sour beer, so good.

Big thanks to theeabyss for getting this out for us to try. Served in a Jolly Pumpkin tulip. Pours with a very nice cherry red hue and a fizzy off-white head that sticks around for a bit. The nose carries really excellent notes of passion fruit and cherry, with the former really standing out in all of its glory. Note to brewers: please use more passion fruit. Behind that is a touch of oak and that signature Jolly Pumpkin funk. Flavor has more cherry than the nose did, splitting the passion fruit and cherry evenly. Background funk and a touch of something almost vinous. Very light fruity acidity and dryness through the finish. So extremely drinkable. Big winner.

(Served in a chalice)
Batch 5 bottles 5/9/12

A- This beer pours a slightly hazy deep orange body with a sea of slow tiny bubbles. There is a thick sticky film of off-white that last a good bit. The second pour turns a bit more hazy.

S- Even during the pour, the full Jolly Pumpkin house yeast character comes through. There is a rich aroma with brett characters coming though as earthy and green grapefruit.

T- The nice flavor of passion fruit has a softer dark cherry note of support followed by some nice wet barrel flavors and a soft Brett flavor in the finish. Some tartness develops in the finish and a fruity and Brett flavor hangs on the tongue after each sip. The white cheese rind flavor comes through nicely aswell.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle fizz that compliments the finish and no alcohol heat or astringency noticed.

O- This beer has a great balance of fruit and wild yeast/Brett flavors. The touch of sweetness in the beginning enhances the fruit character while the wild ale finish is supported by the more dry tartness. This was a tasty beer.

A: poured a bright brown in color with reddish highlights and a nice half finger of head that left a little lacing sticking to the glass.

S: definitely lots going on in the aroma but consisted of acidic, hints of berries, cherries, citric, a little vinous character, but had vinegar undertones and good funky oaky barnyard notes.

T: the fruity berry cherry character was more apparent on the taste with a bretty funky oaky backbone alongside acidic, citrusy and vinous accents.

M: the brew was medium in body with a fair amount of. Carbonation which had slight sweet, mild fruity, oaky, funky, citrusy, tart and dry finish.

O: very interesting delicious beer that is definitely going to be on my must get list. Somebody mail me one.

S- there is not a very strong smell to this beer but you can definitely pick up on cherries. 
T- the taste comes and goes very quickly. The cherries are very defined however there is little by way of the Hawaiian fruit that was used. I do wish that I had a bit more knowledge on the fruit and what it has addded to the beer.  
M-there did not seem to be much by way of mouth feel in fact it was quite thin. There is however, somewhat of a sensation on the tip of the tongue. 
O- I definitely recommend this beer for anyone who loves sours or even if you are a beginner. It is very good either way.

Bottled 5/09/12 - Blend 5

A: Pours a burnt orange, amber body. Fizzy, bubbly head forms and disappears quickly into a thin ring of bubbles. Cloudy. No lacing, as to be expected from style and ABV.

S: Lots of cherries, citrus and oak. Orange and grapefruit rind. Yeasty funk. Lots of tart smells.

T: Tart, strong funk. Sweet fruitiness. Lots of cherry and oak.

M: High carbonation. Dry, but crisp and refreshing. Light body.

O: The best offering I've had from Jolly Pumpkin. This was had great funk and sweet balance. Not too yeasty, but great tastes from the cherries and other fruits.

From notes. Served on tap in at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor.

Sobrehumano pours slightly darker than the usual pale ale. It has a golden caramel color, but there is also an amber tint in the center of the glass. A moderate white froth coats the top of the beer in the pitcher and remains on top in the glass for a few minutes as well before fading to a ring around the edge.

The aroma is fairly tart and acetic, with some berries and citrus fruit. There is a woody oak presence behind it as well.

There is just a quick fruit sweetness to the start of the flavor before it turns totally sour. Tart lemon and a bit of vinegar set the palate to how sour Sobrehumano is, allowing cherries, currants, green apples, and white grapes to dance on the tongue and add further depth. Tannic woody notes come through and add a slight astringency to the finish.

A moderate level of both lemony sour and cherry acetic acidity exists in this beer. The tartness causes gentle salivation and alerts the senses to the flavor sensations on the tongue. At the beginning of the sip the body seems to be in the middle of the spectrum, with the oak and crisp carbonation lightening the feel by the end.

This is yet another very drinkable sour from Jolly Pumpkin. It does not quite match up to Biere de Mars for me, but I would relax over a few glasses of this beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

This beer is a dark red-brown, murky and thick, with a smallish tan head on top. Retention is fair, and the head that exists remains as a decently thick foam on top, leaving spotty lacing.
One thing that defines a good sour is complexity. What I like about the style is that it can take many different directions. While all have some fruity qualities, and, obviously, sour flavors, there are many directions to go. this one foregoes the wine-like and leans toward earthy and sort of raw, or at least what I'd consider natural. There's a cidery note, very slightly vinegar but in such a way that it's beneficial to the overall profile, with lots of tart and sour tropical as well as more domestic fruits; grape and particularly cheery come to mind along with something firm and fleshy of the lighter-colored tropical variety, something like starfruit. The wild yeast is evident, and some leafiness even sneaks in, though that may be more of a vinous element. It goes dry and woody without drying too much, integrating nicely in the overall profile.
The body is medium and carbonation is moderate, though the body itself gets a little inconsistent from time to time. Crispness remains but fades just slightly, and smoothness is in moderation but present.

Obtained at the release party - downtown Ann Arbor pub.
1 pint 9.4 oz bottle. Bottled 4/26/2012. Blend 1. Price $18.
Bottle mentions that this beer is a collaboration between JP and Maui Brewing. It contains signature fruit juices from each state. From Michigan, tart cherries. From Hawaii, liliko'i.

This beer pours a hazy red/orange amber color. Very nice off-white head is explosive at first and then settles into a compact and finely textured cap. Lace is less sticky than I would expect.

Aromas of marinated cracked green olives, ripe mango, passion fruit, fresh Italian lemon juice, a hint of vanilla toasty barrel. Brett laden underworld of cob web clad barrels. Dusty, musty cellar, freshly turned earth.

Flavors of hibiscus, lemon juice, honeyed malt tones, wonderfully clean lactic brightness, geranium leaf, olive pit. In the finish there is a dusty, dry herbal flavor that lingers well with a soft refined bitterness.

Body is medium thin and it finishes dry and tart. Very nice. Very refreshing.

The draft version of this beer (served at the release party) was like Hawaiian Punch. Incredibly fruity, but less sour. The bottled version has more maturation of the JP funk and it is less fruity. I am glad I drank it young when it still had a bit of fruit left.

Split a 750 ml poured into a duvel glass blend #6 5/10/12

A: a browny orange with a hint of red, half a finger of head that dissapates quickly to a film, a few light spots of lacing.

S: deffinatly fruity, sour cherry and a light tropical fruit smell which I assume must be the liliko'i fruit. A nice sourness as well.... Faint vinegar and oak... A very nice smelling beer. At first the aroma was a bit muted I felt, buch once the brew warmed it's aroma really came out.

T: oak and sour cherries up front, cherry skin, a very pleasant tartness, and a hint of red wine vinegar.... I feel like the tropical fruit really makes its presence felt on the finish here, I've never had the fruit before but it reminds me of berryish pineapple dragon fruit. I fell like it gives the beer a almost tropical fruit punch taste.

M: medium lush mouthfeel, with a bit of juiciness on the finish.... Finish is almost like sour lemon rinds/green apple skin and oak. A very nice medium creamy level of carbonation.

O: this is yummy, at first I felt as though it perhaps needed to be a touch more sour, but now as the beer has warmed and I've gotten most of the glass in me, I'm starting to feel more like it was spot on, for a cherry tropical fruit punch sour... Yum.

Wanted to try this and see how it compares to the Maui version. Plus I always need to know how many bottles to buy. Into New Belgium globe.

A - A finger or so of very red head (still light). Body is cloudy and mostly orange with slight red. Great lacing.

S - Whoa. Tons of real grapefruit, like spot on. Lime and green berries.

T - Again with the crazy amount of grapefruit. Delicious. Well balanced sweet and sour, just wonderful. Nice berry flavors and lemon.

M - Nothing special but decent carbonation. Body is a little light, but still good.

O - This was a real surprise. Not expecting that strong fruit flavor and only slight sour. Can taste a lot of Hawaii in this (unlike the Maui version). Refreshing and a nice summer brew.

Split five ways at a recent tasting. Pours a highly opaque amber color with some dark prune and red tints all around. A very small, slightly off-white head dissipates pretty quickly, leaving almost the entire top of the beer bare.

The aroma contains some intensely sour and musky fruits, jam-packed and heavy right from the start. Cherries, citrus, lemon, and some other, unidentifiable tropical aromas linger around and immediately string the nostrils with a pungent sour aroma. There is a bit of musty and damp cellar-like characteristics floating around, something common to many Jolly Pumpkin brews. The aroma gets my saliva glands flowing - I can't wait to try this one.

The initial taste starts off with some bright, crispy citrus; alongside it are heaps of juicy, ripe cherries and slight lemon juice. I'm still getting a mild tropical character, but I can't really just pinpoint a specific fruit. This mofo is super sour and super tart - something I realize as soon as the beer hits my palate. Simply calling it puckering or lip-smacking would be the understatement of the year.

Acidity takes over halfway through and little by little, the sourness calms itself down and fades into a mouth-quenching sweetness. As the sourness subsides, the other flavors start to come out as well: light funk, wet wood, and some mild oak. This isn't as funky as some other JP beers I've had, but just enough to give the brett-lovers a kick. Aftertaste dies with the fading sweetness and a bit of the damp oak. Medium-high carbonation and a medium body at best.

Hot damn, talk about sour. Definitely one of the more tart things to hit my palate - highly fruit, sour, tart, and juicy. Plays well with a moderate amount of funk and finishes with a nice fruity sweetness. Overall, this sucker was pretty enjoyable to drink.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a somewhat hazy mahogany color; the tap cap fades away but leaves some rocky islands on the liquid as well as some spotty lace

Smell: Funky fruit, with the passion fruit prominent, along with the tart cherries; quite acetic

Taste: Acetically tart from the outset, with passion fruit and, to a lesser extent, cherry; by mid-palate, the tartness and funk reduces its dominance, allowing the fruit and malty undertones to make their statement; the finish is more balanced and while the tartness lingers, the fruit flavors are more pronounced

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation; puckerish

Overall: While this beer has a lot of fruit, it brings an exotic fruit element with the passion fruit; very different and quite enjoyable

O - Nice and clean fruity sour beer. Stands out comparably well to other fruit beers.

750ml bottle, with a nice creepy label, appropriate for the upcoming, and already well decorated Hallowe'en 'season'. Also the twin American state inputs to this offering come from the two states that I've visited in the past year or so. Neat.

This beer pours a hazy dark golden amber hue, with two fingers of densely foamy pale beige head, which leaves a fuzzy undulating ridge of painted lace around the glass as it slowly recedes.

It smells of tart, fruity acetic acid, a moderated funkiness - some cheese, some musty barn essence - an actual workaday fruitiness in the way of plum, apple, and cherry, and a soft oakey woodiness. The taste is a weaker sour fruitiness, the cherry and apple notes still most prominent, with a pale grainy maltiness burbling underfoot, some sour milk character, indistinct, tamed funk, and more of that subtle woody astringency.

The bubbles are fairly restrained, but not entirely absent, the body a leaky medium weight, and a bit pithy, but generally all right, and smooth with the expected fruit interference. It finishes mostly dry, the tartness of the fruit still in the forefront, with the latent fleshy sweetness, lingering spoiled milk and hayloft funk doing well to keep things down to earth.

A pretty pleasant version of this usually forceful style - all the big expected marks are there, but none overtake or become overbearing, they just seem to get along, under the auspices of a sturdy fruit base. The passionfruit from the Hawai'i side does seem to get lost in the more pungent mire of the Midwest sour cherries, but I don't think that it loses all, as the overall weight benefits as such. Tasty, and heartwarming, to me, at least, as Michigan and Hawai'i play a large part in my very being, as far as they are from my current existence.

Pours a murky, ruby orange rust color with a small white head. Aroma immediately reminded me of a childhood favorite soft drink, Squirt. Tart cherries with pineapple and a lot of tropical fruit. Lots of grapefruit and other tropical fruits, that I can't recall. Taste has that trademark JP funkiness. I love it! Lovely grapefruit and tropical fruit flavor. Finishes with some tart cherries. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a creamy feel. Tart finish. Drinkability is very high. Overall, I love this beer. This is much better than the canned, Maui version of the beer.

First had: on tap at Monk's, Philly, PA

Collaboration with Maui Brewing.

Served in a tulip glass, a hazy liquid of reddish-amber hue, with a thin white head that receded to a ringlet, leaving spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherries, melons, red wine, mildly acetic. Sour taste, but quite manageable and not at all puckering, tart with a good even mix of cherries and passionfruit, herbal, lightly acetic, with a touch of potpourri and bready yeast. The milder sourness and soft carbonation make for a very drinkable beer that goes down smooth and easy. Very nice overall.

T: I was mildly disappointed by the taste. It is very sour and slightly fruity, but it doesn't stand out as amazing.

750 mL bottle, allowed to warm a little bit before being poured into my Brooklyn Brewery tulip.

Sobrehumano Palena'ole pours a polished auburn that starts pretty clear, but is fairly murky by the time I get to the last pour. Maybe two fingers of bone colored foam cap the beer, with not much head retention or lacing. The nose has a bit of vinous acidity, and a srong tart cherry presence. The flavor still has a little bit of biscuit maltiness to it before the sour and fruit aspects of the beer come in. The flavor of the Liliko'i doesn't really come through at all, but it does contribute to a certain brightness in the acidity that I normally don't find in a sour cherry beer. That cherry - sour interplay is what comes through and fills the rest of the palate. The carbonation has a nice bit liveliness to it, but the body is just a little too slick for its own good. I don't know if Sobrehumano Palena'ole was worth the higher than usual for JP price tag, but it's a very good beer nevertheless.

750 ml bottle, blend 5 bottled 5/9/12. Pours a hazy reddish amber with a small off white head that quickly goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is cherries and tropical fruit with some musty yeast and brett. Yum.

The flavor is tart acidic fruits (cherry, tropical fruit), some wood and some brett and sourness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, wow! Completely different and so much better than the Maui version. Love the sourness and brett and it brings out more fruits and complements them. A bit pricey at $20 a bottle though.

1503rd Review on BA
Bottle to JP/Maui Collab Glass
750ml Cap

Batch 1- 4/12 Bottling.

Thanks to Egadbananas for this one

App- A little bit of a hiss when the cap popped on this one. The beer pours out with a few colors in the glass. It was a light red/orange/yellow color with a good density behind it. Really couldn't see through the center. A good 1-1/2 to 2 finger light tan head was there and fell pretty quick. A little bit of cling but not much.

Smell- The nose on the one was really nice. The opening aromas of the blended cherries from both sides created a nice duality of competiting dryness and earthy bitter and funk at the same time. The oak created a nice aroma with the yeasts casting a great net to hold it all together.

Taste- Its a nice sour. Originally brewed as a red ale with cherries, I was glad the flavors on this one were a bit better than the Maui version. The cherries are dry and tart and the barrel aging creates a good wood earthy bite. The yeasts are a bit funky and complex without over doing it.

Mouth- A little bit of a lighter body with a pretty high carbonation on this one. Residual cherry and funky yeast flavors remain on this one.

Drink- A good sour, not a great sour. Not sure what I was expecting going in, but wasnt disappointed though. Well layered and tasty. I did like this one a lot better than the canned Maui version.

Blend 7, bottled 5/16/2012.

A nice looking beer: copper body, good retention on its white head. Unique aroma has tons of grapefruit; fresh, juicy hops; funky yeast; even hints of weed. Mild sourness starts things off, backed up by a mouthful of fresh grapefruit. Tons of fruits and hops dance on my taste buds.

Tasty and refreshing. One of the better JP brews.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/8/2012. Pours lightly hazy orange amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Good spotty soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big sour cherry, apple, oak, hay, grass, earth, pepper, clove, light vinegar, leather, barnyard funk, and yeast spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance; nicely funky. Taste of tart cherry, apple, hay, grass, oak, pepper, clove, leather, light vinegar, funk, earth, and yeast spiciness. Light earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of sour cherry, apple, pepper, hay, grass, leather, clove, earth, funk, oak, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a bit. Very nice flavor balance and complexity; with a nice balance of light acidity and yeast flavor complexity; zero cloying flavors on the finish; moderately dry on the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly acidic and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent wild ale brewed with fruit juice. Great overall flavor complexity and balance; and very smooth and crisp to sip on with the light acidity. I really enjoyed this one.
