Jolly Pumpkin Biere de Mars
750 ml bottle
Released 04/07, idealized 05/07.
Moderate pour in a beer mug (it’s all I had :(
Poured a clear brown with a huge frothy to rocky fully lasting head with excellent lacing.
Smelt of strong sour brett and citrus, and moderate leather, oak, toasted malt, spices.
Taste was upfront strong sour brett, orange lemon zest, moderate oak and toasted malt followed by a strong horseblanket sourness and leathery oakiness on a long finish.
Palate was light to medium bodied, lively carbonated, watery on a dry finish, lightly to moderately puckering.
Overall, this one kind of took me by surprise. I didn’t really know what to expect, but the sourness is not over the top and the oak balance is way above par. There isn’t anything to hate in this one. Ionlyrate5s (103) - New York, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Another one of my favorite styles. Sour lemon malty...so balanced in aroma and flavor. Such great carbonation like a champgne. Very dry and so summer like. I loved this brew all around.
