Batch 229. Pours a hazy golden straw color. Fluffy white one inch head. Very nice lacing. Earthy aromas, oak, yeasty bread dough, ripe pears. Excellent carbonation on the palate. Flavorful tartness offset slightly by a nice floral hop bitterness. Lemon grass, grapefruit, turmeric. Very refreshing on a warm sunny day. Outstanding!

Just my style. I canít pass Jolly Pumpkins beers up. I did it a couple of times and it did not settle well with me. I vowed never to skip over one again.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2007 bottle, 750 ml. And I should have planned for an old bottle of Belgian wild-fermented beer mught be a gusher, but still I donít plan. So, lots of foam, and when I stuck the bottle into my mouth to keep the beer off the carpet, I got a few bits of grain, too. Zesty smell of a beer with a nice dose of brett, or sour mash. Hazy gold color; after the big chunky gushing foam settles, it almost disappears into a slight ring. Taste is indeed spicy, and more than a bit of it still seems to come from muddled hops. Warming alcohol on a night when itís just 4į above. Just a bit grainy, with sharp effervescence. Green apples in the foreground, lemon in the back, and just a touch of grass from either wild yeast or hops.

On tap at the GCB for 4$ (thanks!). Not sure how I havenít rated this one yet; its probably my third or fourth time having it. Pours golden in a tulip glass with slight haze. 5mm of moderately-coarse white head that fades. Aroma/flavor are grass, grain, bit of Parmesan cheese, some herb, dust. Body is medium light, a tad bit syrupy for the style. Delicious.
