COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cucurbitophobia ("the fear of pumpkins") our first collaboration with our friend and sensei, Jolly Pumpkin. Ron at Jolly Pumpkin has been a huge inspiration for our brewery, and a pioneer for breweries into mixed culture, barrel-aging beers. This is a saison we open fermented and aged in oak barrels with a blend of both of our house cultures. Given Jolly Pumpkin’s deft hand at subtle spicing, we gave this tart saison delicate, subtle layers of complexities by brewing with black lava salt, rainbow peppercorns, and blood oranges zest and juice.

Thanks to Andrew for this interesting beer. RBSG bottle sharing is sure a kick Pours gold with white foam. Nose is fund and spice. Medium body. Flavor is citrus and wood, but funky. Finishes with the pepper spice but mildly. Really tasty. Very good.

Bottle at home dated 6/30/16. Hazy yellow. Some white foam, dissipates. Funky, damp cellar aroma. Lemon citrus. Faint lambic notes. Taste is mellow tart. Light spice. Citrus flavors - zest. Subtle bitterness, not much. Dry, low to medium carbonation. Lighter bodied. Pretty good, will get another and cellar it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From notes. This was enjoyed at Jolly Pumpkin on October 1 for Zwanze Day 2016! This is under the Monkish label, so I’m going to rate is as such. The pour is a lazy golden yellow with a thicker white head that falls down slowly leaving a little lace. The aroma is pretty good. There is a bright citrus up front, a good funkiness, a nice oak, and a bit of stone fruit in there. I don’t really get any peppercorn, but the salt is detectable on the back end. The flavor mimics this. There is a nice citric funk up front and a lovely light fruit that blends with a yeastiness that comes in. The balance is really nice. Again, there is no peppercorn. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a little softer carbonation and a lingeringly funky and salty finish. This is pretty good.

On tap @ Monkish. Clear golden beer with a white head. Two of my favorite brewers, particularly of this sort of beer. Really big time lemon, orange, and stone fruit. That bit of melon and peach is sort of that archetypal Jolly Pumpkin thing but Henry is doing it really well at Monkish, too. Don’t get much in the way of the spices/pepper, which is okay with me. A nice touch of oak, light musty funk, and a touch of yeast. Really nice.

Marheb (6238) - Montréal, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 10, 2016
(En fût à la source): Un nez puissant de nectarines, poires et zestes de lime qui se réflète avec cohérence dans les saveurs. Une impression poivrée se mêle au boisé et glisse grassement sur la langue. Les saveurs sont propres et éclatantes avec une acidité intelligemment dosé.

Wanted to rate this one for a while but someone deleted my entry. This was always for the Monkish version made in Cali. Bottle shared by Al, pours hazy golden with smaller head. Notes are banging lemon funk, oak, sour nectarine, and layered yeast complexities. Really well executed collab beer with one of my old favorites, Jolly Pumpkin and new brewing in Monkish that I’ve been digging lately.
