Jolly Pumpkin Lambicus Dexterius


Brewed by Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales
Dexter, Michigan USA
Style: Lambic Style - Gueuze | Ratings: 151 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 6.3%
Belgian style Lambic brewed traditionally (100% spontaneous fermentation). (Blend of 4 yr, 3.5 yr and 2.5 yr)

Malts: Pils Malt, Raw Wheat
Hops: Aged Hallertauer

One of Jolly Pumpkins founding goals was not only to be the first all oak aged sour brewery in the US, but the first production Lambic brewery as well. We began creating this beer over four years ago. Brewed using a traditional turbid step mash, an extended boil, and allowed to cool overnight in one of our open fermenters. Moved the next day into some of our most sour barrels. No culture yeast is used, only our native Dexter cultures.

Notes of orange, grapefruit, and a wonderful funky sourness complete the picture. Bottled Still.
