On tap at the Avenue Pub, NOLA

A: Rust colored with an off-white one finger head that held on for dear life. Curtainy lacing.

S: All kinds of things pop up. Brown sugar, citrus, coriander, malts and chocolate.

T: The tartness really surprised me, coming from a brown ale. This was surrounded by a sweet caramel maltiness with bits of cacao and some spiciness. But the tart lingers.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: My first Jolly Pumpkin experience. Unusual. Tarty cool.

On tap at Forequarter, Madison. A hazy garnet liquid, with a light tan head and superior retention.

It's a sharp, tart, vinous complex brown ale aroma. The aroma is pretty awesome, serious vinegar-yeast / cherry tartness, yet sugar cookie malt in the background. A moderately pronounced alcohol.

Creaminess, cut by moderate carbonation.

I could drink this all day.

Pours a hazy deep orange gold with an inch of yellow-white head, dissipates slowly.

Smells of Belgian candi sugar and melon.

Flavor is of melon, lemon, coriander, and a dry vegetal hoppiness over grassy malts.

Medium body with a tingle of carbonation on the tongue.

A nice, interesting tart ale, good flavor and easy-drinking. Not what I was expecting but pleasantly surprising.
