3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2008 Rerate, 750mL bottle, batch 244,245, again courtesy of artusory. Much more tartness, better composed: bready, tart citrus, and some nuttiness. This sour version is much improved. 188.8.131.52.15=4.0
750mL bottle, courtesy of artusory. Thanks, Ryan! Pours a hazy, orangish-red appearance; huge, textured white head with great retention and lacing. Yeast and marshmallow in the aroma. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: plenty of yeasty and bready notes; pleasant belgian profile with coriander, cardamom, and hints of butterscotch and white pepper; well-balanced and layered mouthfeel. I just wish it was a bit sour... Medium, yeasty and spicy finish. 184.108.40.206.14=3.8

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.

Bottle. [Blind tasting session @ Sk8viking] #6 Large fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting. Good lacing. Body was clear sparkling with an amber hue.

Reminded me of a light Lambic.
