2.3/5  rDev -44.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

Batch 346/348, for reference.

Pours a very dark brown, pruney almost. Odd for a BdM or BdG. Slight head, quickly dissipates. Smells hugely vinegaric - like an absolute sour bomb with nothing else in it. Like a Oud Bruin with no balance to it whatsoever, no malt for balance. Wearily, I try a sip. It goes beyond vinegaric to downright offensive - with this style though, I don't know if they were shooting for a sour bomb, or if it has an infection (given the yeasts they go for). I think I made it about 3 sips with this before drainpouring the rest. I'm going to check into it, and will edit the review if it is not supposed to be like this.

4.08/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear amber with a creamy, lingering khaki head.

S: The nose presents delicate aromas of cider vinegar, oak, must, pineapple, carambola, guava, caramel, toffee apples, and spiced pear.

T: Notes of dark bread, nougat, toffee apples, caramel, spiced pear, cider vinegar, must, oak, pineapple, carambola, guava, toasted almonds, sour cherries, and unripened grape fill the mouth. The finish is clipped and dry with sour cherry, must, oak, pineapple, spiced pear, and toffee apple notes.

M: Medium-to-full in body and very dry. Carbonation is spritzy. There is a slight alcohol warmth in the mouth.

O: An awesome sour ale. To this point, this might be one of my favorite offerings from Jolly Pumpkin.
