Courtesy of mibirder. Cloudy yellow, minimal white head. Aroma has nice lacto sour up front, hints of pils malt and light floral/citrus character. Flavor much the same, really nice combo of floral/citrus, donít really get any goord, dig it none the less. Highly carbonated, great mouthfeel. Thanks Sean! Much appreciated.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Courtesy of mibirder
Bottle: The aroma consists of lemon, tropical fruit, and a hint of pepper. It pours a hazy dull golden-orange with a small white head that leaves behind some wispy lacing. The flavor starts with a quick dose of tropical fruits. The finish has moderate lemon tartness with a touch of floral and oak notes. Light-medium bodied with somewhat lively, but not prickly, carbonation.

Thanks to Sean for bringing this. Nice nose with sweet squash and honey, some nice vanilla oak notes, and just a touch of musty yeast. The taste is lightly sweet and lightly tart, light a lightly spiced pumpkin pie, some light citrus/brett/JP funk, some light pineapple. Just a bit vegetal at the end. Finishes with a very dry and bitter citrus peel note.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2010-12-04. Hazy dark yellow body with a modest foamy white head. 3+ Pleasant aroma of sour fruit, and sour tropical fruit with just a hint of acetone? Lemon seed notes make varying appearances. 7+ Flavour has a moderate sourness throughout, sour tropical notes, mixed with lemon and lemon seed accents. I am not sure I would pick pumpkin out of the flavour profile if not indicated on the label. 7+ Average palate. Very good, but not sure I would come back to it often. Enjoyable. Love the label.

Bottle shared by Turdferguson. Cheers, Sam. Pours a bright cloudy golden with lovely and large white head. Aroma is Jolly Pumpkin-esque. Lemony and bright. Taste is tart, with wood and earth notes and citrus rind. The kale is actually present and pretty good. Very interesting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle at the Blue Monk. Still pretty cold after half an hour. Cloudy peachy colour with a white bubbly head, a sheet of lace down the cup. Farmhouse aromas, however a tolerable farmhouse aroma. Medium mouthfeel. A wild ale, a tad of pumpkin and vegetable but mostly a strong bold wild ale. Decent drinkability, however bomber must be shared by three.
