Just received a shipment of Jolly Pumpkin beers from Colorado as I am becoming more and more a fan of Artisan style barrel-aged ales and wild yeast. The first bottle I've tried is Luciernaga.

A: Pours honey-gold with a thick, bubbly and foamy head.

S: Funky woody with a hint of oak.

T: Light then follows with a tart finish with pear and green apples.

M: Extremely carbonated.

O: I am very spoiled living next to Jester King Brewery with their excellent sour and tart flavor profiles. My expectations may be too high although I am looking forward to trying and reviewing the remaining Jolly Pumpkin. That's why I bought several as I am sure there are one or two that will be even better. I'd say this is more of a Session Style Beer similar to the Le Petite France at Jester King.
