4.14/5 rDev +1.5%
Poured from a capped 750 mL bottle into a Duvel tulip. Moderately gentle hand. Batch 304,306. Bottled on 02/12/14.
A: Cloudy orange with a pink tint. 3 fingers of rocky off-white head. Good retention. Gushed a bit with opening. Nice lacing.
S: Lightly musty, lightly tart Belgian yeast. Hints of rose petals and other florals. Lemon. Interesting strawberry notes.
T: Tart and lightly fruity up front with development of a faint pale maltiness and mild hop bitterness. Berry sweetness flashes before a fairly dry finish. A floral, slightly sour bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. Alcohol is minimal.
M: Moderate to high carbonation, but not overly prickly. Actually rather smooth feeling. Light to moderate body. Good vehicle for the flavors noted above.
O: Another solid offering from Jolly Pumpkin. Enough embellishment to create some interesting depth, but even-handed enough not to overwhelm the underlying base beer. The berry notes, in particular, are quite nice.
