25.4 oz. bottle poured into tulip

L: between gold and copper (7-8 SRM), beautifully clear, tons of activity in the glass; sticky 4/5-inch head of offwhite foam; all those bubbles flying up a wide swath in the glass are leaving a huge collar and nearly full skin of foam; enough sticking to give it the stamp of 5 ... a work of art

S: sour/tart lemon, something sweet, a bit of fingernail polish/fingernail polish remover; musty barn underneath, wet grain sacks ... all classic Jolly Pumpkin

T: all of the nose topped by walnuts/peanuts finish, almost meaty; very little sweetness at first, a ton of of that musty barn/earthiness giving it a big bitter flavor throughout; the nutty finish keeps showing up, but it's very subtle; kumquats, lots of lemon/lemon peel, sour grapes -- super dry white wine; never opens up into anything very sweet, but the rounded earthy/tart base flavor and subtle nut flavored finish is making for a solid session

F: perfect ... light but full, the Belgian-inspired carbonation is wonderful

O: not my favorite JP, but again, true to the brewery's track record, it's a fine beer and definitely worth the price and effort ... it's also a beer I might cellar for a while to see if any other flavors show up as it ages. probably a one-off for me, but I wouldn't dare turn this one down.

(Re-review 7/30/17, original score 4.16)

This beer pours a cloudy red color. The head is billowy, and last long. Lacing is good, and sticky. The aroma is sour and tart with dark fruits, and barnyard funk. The taste is less sour than the aroma, and the fruit comes out much stronger. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, this is a solid beer, but I prefer the more aggressively soured offerings from Jolly Pumpkin.
