750ml bottle served in a pint glass.

Enjoyed @ PiBar - Lausanne

A: Pours a pale yellow color. Slightly hazy. Forms a big bubbled and aired white head. Medium to low retention and many lingering lacings left in the glass

S: Quite funky. Malty and sour in the nose. Reminds a Saison somehow since it's also quite spicy and peppery. Lemony hops and a bit woody

T: Sweet malts followed by a nice moderate sourness. Lemony and peppery. Notes of oak and citrus fruits. Interesting and mild touch of grassy and lemony hops

M: Medium body and carbonation. Sour and citruses aftertaste

O: Excellent drinkability. My first Jolly Pumpkin. Good surprise.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip.

Look: Bright, hazy golden color with a puffy white head and active carbonation. Head fades to a ring over time.

Smell: Green apple skin, sweet tarts, peach, oak, black pepper, lemon rind, and ripe melon as it warms.

Taste: Crisp, fluffy carbonated mouth feel. Sour and tart upfront, green apple, lemon, funk, and oak come through. Finishes slightly bitter and dry. As it warmed some of the sour fruit flavors seemed more sweet and ripe.

Overall: I really enjoyed this one, great mouth feel, very refreshing and layered. It really opened up in the nose and taste as it warmed. I will definitely pick up more this one.
