Sour funk and malt-forward enough to balance everything out. Really well done - I’d drink this more often if I could get it!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Pour is deep, rusty amber, with a big tan head and great lacing. Funky, caramelly, green apples, pears, straw, sweet tarts, white grapes, and wood in the aroma. Taste is basil, caramel, tart apples, grassy, bread, tangy, herbal, lemony, and orange peel with a lightly tart finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Solid funky offering.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pour is an almost-clear amber with a thin layer of tan foam. Aroma is lightly funky and tart with notes of cherry, leather, and red wine. Also a light mineraly earthiness. Flavor is really quite stunning. Up front, tart cherry notes glide across the palate. That gives way to malt vinegar notes followed by earthy tannin and woody notes. Very well-balanced and quite drinkable. A bit more tart than I would expect from a Biere de Garde but I really like it.

Light house jolly pumpkin bretta. Coppery and cloudy with good head and lacing. Finishes with light sourness. Some grapefruit citrus. Nice balance, probably one of my preferred from Jolly Pumpkin. Tap at Churchkey.

Draft at Clinton hall. Pours a cloudy dark brown color. No head. Taste is like a mash up of a bier de garde and a sour. Very interesting in its complexity

Draught @ City Beer, San Francisco, California
Pours dark reddish orange with a small head. Aroma of tart berries, earthy notes, spices and ripe fruits. Taste is smooth, tartish and yeasty with some earthy notes, spices and wood. Finish is oaky, woody and tartish with some earthy notes and yeast. Okay sourish farmhouse ale.
