Oregon

3.9/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a pint glass. 03/01/09.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with an inch of soft bubbly white head. The head slowly dropped to a thin layer, great retention. Aroma is tart with citrus (lemon, orange) and slight wheat, and some coriander as well.

Taste is slightly sweet up front with hints of wheat. That is followed by a rush of citrusy tartness, zesty lemon and orange peel, pepper and coriander. Some white wine flavor as well. Very funky. A bit heavy on the tart side, it masks some of the other flavors.

Feel is light-medium bodied and very bubbly like champagne. The finish is bone dry. Drinkability is decent aside from the heavy tartness. If that were dialed down a notch or two, this would drink very easily.

I believe this is my first beer from Jolly Pumpkin. It is an interesting take on the style. I don't recommend this for people that don't like sour/tart beers. But it is a very interesting beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

750ml bottle into nonic pint. bottled on january 21, 2014. consumed on july 25, 2014

a: fully cloudy pale yellow. three fingers of frothy, bubbly, web-like head

s: a nice banana scent up front, then oak, spices, pineapple, lemon, and sour funk

t: tart lemon, wheaty malt, orange, funk, pineapple, oak, coriander, and banana, in that order. has a really dry finish with lingering oak, malt, and slight funk flavours

m: really harsh carbonation right when it hits the tongue, could be toned down a bit. light-bodied

o: a tasty and complex beer with lots of interesting flavours. finishes a bit too dry and i'm not a fan of the bubbly mouthfeel, but other than that, great stuff
