4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big thanks to Hopscotch for sending this magnificent beer my way. Pours deep amber brown with a small off-white head with a good amount of retention. The aroma has lots of Belgium funk with smooth maltiness that offsets the funk well. There is also a strong spiciness. Medium / full body with a good amount of sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with sour yeastiness and good amount of funk - there is also some smoothness from the malt and nuttiness. The finish is spicy and sharp spice with some chestnuts showing through to mellow things out. Another BIG thumbs up from Jolly Pumpkin, one of the most consistently wonderful breweries in the states.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The medicinal aroma of this ale took away from my enjoyment. Hazy brown with a large, good-lacing beige head, it smells of anise, oak, pepper, unripe sour cherries, and chewed mint leaves. There’s a slight sourness to the flavor that combines all the elements of the aroma, adds a quietly sweet malt, and has a touch of alcohol. Obviously well crafted, but this will probably be the only time that I will drink it.
