A hazy orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with quite a lot of alcohol as well as peaches, the sweet notes reminds me of candy. The flavor is slightly acidic and bret-like combined with notes of grapes and wood. I’m surprised that I don’t pick up any bourbon notes when it has been on a bourbon cask for 14 months - maybe the cask is what gives it the bret note? I’m not really impressed - but it is not my favorite style.

Bottle at Argo0 pre-RBSG tasting on 13 July 2006. Pretty much as I anticipated from Jolly Pumpkin, which I had heard a lot about. Mushroomy and barnyard notes on the nose. But a bit more restrained than I expected. Moderate funky farmyard character on the palate. There was a slightly odd edge that I thought seemed a bit like plastic but it didn’t detract too much. Moderate sourness. Sharp mouthfeel. The bourbon aging contributed just a slight accent without overwhelming. Perhaps it smoothed things out a bit too. Good but I was expecting something a bit more extreme.

Bottle. Pours reddish amber brown. Nose/taste of cherry vinegar, tart red berries, oak, vanilla, brown sugar and tannins. I don’t get any of the bourbon from the barrel treatment. Aggressive acidity up front. Settles down after a few sips. Medium body.

brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 9, 2010
A: The pour is a dark amber color with a head that dies quickly and becomes a thin ring of off-white head. S: The oak and lactic acidity are quite evident on the nose. A bit of sweet caramel and vanilla, as well as some light funkiness. Some hints of sour cherries and vinegar, as well. T: Oak is dominant throughout and provides a tannic quality to the beer. Some light vinegar and and cherries, but not overly sour or tart. There’s a distinct earthiness to this beer which I find enjoyable. M: The body is medium with a soft carbonation and lightly dry finish. D: Like most of Jolly Pumpkin’s beers, this is a good one. I haven’t had the regular Biere de Mars, but this has inspired me to pick one up at some point.
