Reviewed on 8/12/09. This is a limited run beer made with butternut squash, pumpkin (and other vegetables I think), spices, and spontaneously fermented to give it a sour taste. Growler from Bellport Beer & Soda. Pours a clear light brown/orange with hardly any head. Aroma of pumpkin, allspice, sweet potato. Flavor is quite sour initially (tart and acidic) with a vegetably finish (pumpkin, squash). I'm not sure the sour-spice/herb/vegetable fusion was a great idea. The palate was too acidic and the beer was very difficult to drink. Overall, this is quite an odd beer, but it's nice to see Butternuts experimenting.

Pours a crystal clear amber with a frothy crème head. Nose is a biting sour with some spices it seems. Really attacks the sense. Flavor is quite unique. And odd. So apparently there are sweet potatoes and all other kinds of fall/winter goodies used in this. And it shows. There is the whole sour and brett edge, but it really is matched by the heavy use of spices and all things food in this beer. Definitely can notice the spices. Feel has a fairly full carbonation. Liquid is typical I suppose. This is a pretty nice sour I guess. But a whole growler of it is too much really.
