3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle thanks to Nanoslug. Pours dark brown with a small off-white head and decent lacing. Nice tart aroma, funky and wild with slight roastiness and tart fruits. The flavor has sour dark fruit, blackberry maybe, with roast and funk. Medium sourness for Jolly Pumpkin. Medium-bodied with good carbonation and acidity. Good stuff, which I appreciate for a "guido" beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A-pours a dark brown, almost black liquid with a little tan colored head that sits quite dense.
S-the nose has a good malt body to it, tart aromas, lots of tart cherries, lightly acidic, dry oak, a little vinous and earthy, hints of leather with some subtle red wine qualities.
T-malt base is present but less so than the nose, more sourness than expected from the nose but not overly sour. tons of ripe fruits, cherries, strawberries, well balanced tartness. oak is there, light and very dry oak and a little earthy, hints of brett and just a touch of acidity.
M-full bodied, well carbonated, smooth and crisp finish that is semi dry leaving you wanting more.
D-great flaovrs, love the oak presence along with the huge sweet fruit flavors and somewhat wine like characteristics. the sourness is moderate and balances this nicely, very good beer!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this side by side with P1 thanks to Ryan at the DC epic tasting. Thanks man! This one was slightly darker in the glass. Not as great of an aroma. Theres not as much acetyl or sour notes and there’s a little chocolate in there somewhere. Slightly sour. Still thin mouthfeel and lack of body. Meh. Overhyped
