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.

Tap pour @Covenhoven. Opaque copper color. Thin head. Tart, cherry nose. Taste follows. Smooth. Lots of cherries. Some strawberry sweetness lurking behind.

solidfunk (4489) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2014
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.

Tap @ Fools Gold NYC. Pours a darkish amber with a very thin tan head. Aroma is oak, sour cherries, acidic wine, brett, funky must. Taste is full of funky granny smith apple, white wine / oak barrel, sour grapes, barnyard brett. Really delicious, great balance.. nice tart sour taste.

BrewBoxer (2141) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2014
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

tiong (4018) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2014
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.

On tap at Jolly Pumpkin. Very nice, refreshing, cider-y but with a great biter back end. Really nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hops_Scotch (2) - - MAY 7, 2014 does not count
This sour is so complex but so refreshing & out of the box. Earthy fruity flavors are abundant with a huge sour kick. Not for the beginner sour drinker, but a huge success for us that love sours.

Had a glass on tap at the pub. Wow, this is pretty outstanding. Quite funky, good sourness, but well balanced and very light and drinkable.
