2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of fine to medium sized off-white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body appeared uncarbonated transparent and copper in color. The nose contained notes of mild malt and hops. The mouth feel was tingly and hoppy initially then continued to linger around in the finish. It had a mild red flavor that was clean and crisp with notes of hops and mild malts.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ruby tinted amber coloured body with a very frothy brown head. Aroma of malt and a very potent caramel flavour with tons of fresh hops! Medium-bodied; Great flavour of fresh hops, a ton of rich caramel and toffee. Good malt flavours throughout and a slight spice note at the very end. Aftertaste shows bitterness with hops predominently with a little caramel as well. Overall, a nice beer and a great one to sample first here in Northern Michigan! I sampled this pint on cask at the brewery in Traverse City, Michigan on 05-November-2010.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2010 First off, I’m expecting a meaty Red Lager. Something real low ball and cheap. Instead, these thoughts are interrupted by a delicately perfumed sweet green apples, right off the wild tree in September. The skins shine in Brett glory and mix with sour wafts of passionfruit nectar. Florally brillant. Even the appearance is shimmering beauty, with a clear deep florid amber, with coarse bubbles and a toothy rim of off-white. The flavor is a sweet coursing dance of sour wildness and strict malt body. The intermidably terse grain sugars melt into a sweet candy caramel apples, dusted with chocolate powder. Hiding behind a facade of the most exacting beautiful fresh apple flavor is a backbone of real grain malt and the biting coalescence of hops for balance is exquisite. The hops are intended for a red, but work well in a wild fermented belgian. The brett character is smooth and soft, with perfumed edges of sourness and earth. This bottled version by Ron Jefferies is the best kept secret in the Upper Peninsula. Was swinging for a ground out and hit a home run. Really another exciting Jolly Pumpkin brew, hidden behind a North Peak bottle. Amazing!
