Caterwaul (51) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Nearly opaque peachy orange. Looks really pretty. Faint citrus(grapefruit stands out) and funk. Wood. Sweet, sour, and vinous with lots of citrus and tropical fruit, particularly grapefruit, lemon, passion fruit, and pineapple. Finishes with bitter pink grapefruit and oaky funk. Dry as a bone. I’d love to get another taste of this, but I doubt I’ll ever see it again. Rats!

koleminer20 (979) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Shared at a tasting hosted by Steebo on February 13. 2011 Vintage. The pour is a bright gold with a big foamy off-white head that falls down quickly. The aroma has a lot of peach and funk. Maybe a little apple as well. The flavor is really tart, sharp, and delicious. There is a ton of peach and apple. The back end holds some really sour lemon. The mouth feel is a little light, and the carbonation seemed to have faded a bit in the few moments it was in the glass, so it fell off a little quicker than I’d like. But the aftertaste is tart, sour, peachy, and a little lemony. Great beer!

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2015 Bottle: 2011 vintage. Slightly hazed bright golden body, foamy off-white head fades to a collar quickly. Huge sour yogurty lacto aroma, pear skins, peach, stone fruit, apple skin, lemon, & moderate hay-cork funk. A little sweat in the back-end. Sharp, acidic stone fruit flavor; lemons, apple, peach. Very sour & full of lacto, hay, light straw & cork; modest funky wood & stone fruit finish, lovely oak profile. Sharp mouth feel, super dry. Jolly Pumpkin nails another one.

"this batch 85% bam, 15% lambic, aged in oak. Persistent funky sour aroma and flavor, mostly very good, but with a hint of baby diaper in there as well. Has the house JP brettyness, but there’s more to it, which is really nice. Slightly acidic with a long dry finish."

Funky sour that leans toward dry yeastiness rather than fruity sour notes. Really tasty.
