Every bottle is a slightly different story, but a good tale resonates in all forms.

Pours a spectacle of tinny copper with a thick near-moussy head, just short of a clean white. Such high shine with ruddy wood tones, so spectacular I almost forget the wall to wall stain.

Not always much on the nose, mostly arid brett tartness with an even body of toasted pale nuts, no shell, just the meat. Could never pin down the light fruity presence, pleasing nonetheless.

Foremost is the shy Vienna backing lending a slightly nutty backdrop of firm malt structure for the brett, light new oaking, and earthy-spicy hop pops. Toasty and neutral when young, later bottles stretched into a more phenolic range of vanilla airiness and pitted fruit sharpness. Upon first release the hops stretched across the palette with a true crackle, though time rounded it out a maerzen balance of nuts, herbal tingle, but then the always-Jolly brett citrus. Noble in refined balancing, not quite as guiding as other Pumpkins.

Roast vegetables and Jalisco specialties paired well with this beer. Drink it soon before the brettanomyces suck it dry of its soul.
