Dunt (284) - Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Opened this at a random Sunday tasting. 12 oz. poured into a Stone IRS tulip. Pours a relatively flat murky, dirty brown in color. Nose is heavy on the la Roja GR and bam. Itís slightly medicinal, a little vinegar, earthy, and some malt. Flavor is an amalgam of malt and cherry, some light vinegar, and a little band aid. Mouthfeel is light, carbonation is obsolete, acidity is moderate, and itís a short to medium finish. I think this itís slightly past itís prime, seems slightly oxidized. Itís still relatively tasty, but it should be consumed pretty quickly as I donít see it getting better.

Glouglouburp (6004) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2013
In short: A very oaky, tannic and dry funky/farmhouse golden ale.
How: Bottle 12oz. Consumed when over 1 year of age, bottle sent to me by tyler_mn, thanks a lot Tyler.
The look: Clear deep golden body topped by a small beige head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is full of oak, a nice farmhouse funk, horse blanket. Taste is surprisingly not too intense, dry biscuits, lots of dry oak, fresh red apple skin, dried grapes, tannins, funk, light cheesy notes, minerals sensation. Attack is juicy and the finish is bone dry. Sourness level is in the low-medium range relative to the style. It is the intense tannic dryness that makes this Sour Ale intense and not its sourness. Yes despite the intense oaky-tannic dryness I found the beer very easy to drink, but you need a glass of water to go along with the saliva-sucking beer. Quite happy to add another rating for one of my favourite breweries, but rating all Jolly Pumpkin beers I can find is not an Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, because between ordering my entire beer cellar in alphabetic order on weekdays and reordering it by style on week-ends, I really donít have time for this OCD thing.
