Big thanks goes out to funkydelic for sharing this one during our Labor Day tasting! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured a deep red-orange with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, tart cherry, sour, earth, and grain. The flavor was of sweet malt, tart cherry, grain, sour, and earth. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. We tasted this one side-by-side with the Maui version and HOLY SHIT! These things are night and day different from each other. Lots more complexity going on in this one with a nice tart and sour note that was very intriguing. Not sure what Jolly Pumpkin did differently on this one, but whatever it was it TOTALLY worked. Well worth seeking out if you have not had it.

A: The beer is very hazy reddish amber in color. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down and left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: The smell has aromas of sourness and brettanomyces yeast
T: The taste is rather tart and has some sourness with notes of oak from the barrel aging and hints of sour cherries in the flavors. The sourness becomes stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The oak lends a bit of dryness in the finish.
O: This beer isn’t as sour as some of the other Jolly Pumpkin beers so it could make for a good introduction to the style.

Note: Blend #7

We opened this along side the maui version at the Baltimore BA get together. Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy amber color with a red hue. There is a layer of white head that fades to a ring around the pour.

Smell: Sweet and rather herbal. There is a tartness along with some tropical fruit notes. Definitely picking up the traditional Jolly Pumpkin yeast.

Taste: Tart and a bit fruity. There is a mild note that reminds me of herbal tea. The finish is rather tart with some of the fruit notes. The sourness is similar to other JP offerings.

Mouthfeel; Medium body with tingly carbonation and a finish that is a bit dry.

Overall: This is much better than the Maui offering. I wouldn't have known the two were related if you didn't tell me. I would have this one again.

I was pretty excited to see this arrive. Indiana only got six cases.

Sobrehumano pours a light bodied bright blood orange in color with a light and creamy one finger, off white head. The nose is light and approachable. It smells of tart cherry juice. I appreciate that the cherry is authentic. The flavors too are light and approachable. It's very cherry forward and features a nice evel of tartness. I'm glad it doesn't feature any of the sweet aspects of cherry juice, which can be a little much. It's nice but I can't get anything other than cherry juice. It just doesn't have the opportunity to be more complex. Most Jolly Pumpkins have a lot of their house yeast flavor but i just don't get that with this one. I like this beer. It's a lighter sour, it just doesn't grade particularly well.

Pours a hazy deep orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, a dry, dark cherry fruitiness. In the taste, dryer, big dark cherry fruitiness. A small cherry like bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry cherry flavor in the aftertaste. Huge cherry presence, expecting a bit more sour, but nice nonetheless.
