foundmd (210) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2011
750ml bottle. Batch 585, bottled 7-27-10. Pours beautiful pale yellow with a white head. Aroma of tart green apple, wild yeast, straw, lemon zest, and a touch of oak. Moderate tart sourness hits the palate first followed by delicate wild yeast, lemon, tangerine, green apple. apricot, peach, banana, clove, oak, pepper, floral hops, and bready malt. Light mouthfeel with a dry finish and some lingering tartness. A lot of white wine character, but of course much better. Absolutely fantastic.

Wersja butelkowa 2014.

Aromat: coś na pograniczu dzikiego saisona i tripela z nutami ciastek, cukru kandyzowanego, cytrusw czy przypraw. Odrobina wanilii czy dębiny także obecne, jednak po chwili oprcz dzikości zaczyna dominować alkohol. Interesujące.

Wygląd: barwa złota, lekko zamglona z białą, umiarkowaną pianą. Niezbyt trwałą, ale ładnie oblepiającą szkło.

Smak: wyraźna kwaskowość w stylu lambikw, jednak wyczuwalny jest rwnież cukrowy podkład, przyprawy i alkohol. Goryczka niezbyt imponująca, jednak usta wykleja jakby tłustawy akcent. dziwne odczucie. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane do wysokiego wysycenie i kwaskowo- alkoholowy finisz z nutami pieprznymi. Niezłe, ale liczyłem na większy wpływ beczki.

Like Jolly Pumpkins other brews, Oro de Calabaza reveals the smells and flavors of the Franco-Belgian farmhouse brewing techniques. Oro de Calabaza pours gold. Its nose is yeasty, floral, and peppery. Tastes like bread-like malt, grass, stone fruit, white pepper, and acidic funk. Theres some earthy sourness on the palate. Theres a lot of the old world in this brew.

Nice maltiness with some funky brett impact. Citrus, some fresh grass. Light sweetness with light bitterness. Awesome balance, refreshing and enjoyable. Not sure about style though

jinroh (1456) - ESTONIA - APR 9, 2017
Pours usual orange, quite clear. Lacing and other great things going on with the foam. Aroma is nicely funky, frost bitten berries, soft sourness. Taste is also soft, some tannins there, smooth sour that has some bitter edges but still easily delivers what you are looking from sour beers. Well done.
