This beer reminds me of the orange juice commercial where they strip back the carton and there is pulpy flesh underneath and then a spout is opened and the juice pours ripe from the box. Well, put a keg tap into a bag of Brachs' spicy gum drops with some fine festering yeast and spring water and here's what you have: a tart beer gumdrop. A peppery confection that froths with an infected head. I mean this in a good way. Like when a rich pumpkin pie and whipped cream begin to swirl and meld together from a thorough forking. As with all the Jolly Pumpkin beers they leave you thinking "designer beer" but also, "one more bottle to figure out if I like it." Yes I do.

S- Sour. Brett and sour apple. A little grain, and bready malt characters.
T- Sour apple. A little dry citrus, grapefruit.
M- Light body, with a bubbly carbonation. Semi-dry finish, but with a huge pucker.
O- Tart and sour. Really nice.
