Big thanks to thorpe429 for this long time want and romolux for supplying more of this in a recent trade.
bottle poured into bruery tulip
Blend 1 2011
Color: Brownish red hues for this beer.... glows differently from every angle. A hazy beer, not plenty of light getting through this one. A nickle sized head forms after the pour of the off white shade. Some minor soapy lacing is left on the glass as you drink the beer down.
Nose: Big funky smells come from this beer. Vinegar comes up at the forefront followed by some wicked barnyard scents. Dried pit fruit floats around in the glass and the smell of apples and cranberries swim in the background.
Palate: Interesting! mellow sourness/tart. Funky and fruity with a medium body feel. The drinkability is awesome.... the carbonation is spot on and the abv is well masked. As the beer warms it gets a tad more complex,but a bit harder to drink, but not really a bad thing.
Finish: Dry and tart with a lingering texture of sour fruit and mild vinegar. I really enjoyed this brew. I wish it was available a lot more especially in California. JP another solid brew!

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.
