Bomber- pours a cloudy straw color. Nice earthy barn smell with some spicy citrus on the back. Nice white head. Spicy sour initially, but it resolves to a refreshing nip of hoppiness.

colui72 (938) - HONG KONG - MAY 16, 2017
Pours pale golden/straw, minimal head and some sticky lacing. Aroma if floral, very delicate, malty, some lemon and peppery. It gets more flavourful to the palate, with spices, pepper, malts, honey, lemon, grass, wood and some yeasty funk. Low bitterness but not sweet either (yes!). Body is quite light, with a flat carbonation. Damn good ale, and I dont fancy pale beers!

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.
