Presentation: Bomber bottle, bottled two months ago, poured into a Bruery tulip glass. Poured a touch chilled, just below cellar temperature. I am rating this as an American wild ale, after taking a sip, definitely fits far better there over pumpkin ale.

Appearance: Orange to light brown in color. Pours a nice one finger white head. A tad cloudy.

Aroma: Big barnyard and funk notes, very reminiscent of almost all Jolly Pumpkin offerings. A touch of lemon zest and sour cherry. Very complex and balanced.

Taste: Funk and sour notes upfront. The lemon zest and cherry notes are here too. The sour is far more upfront than I would expect. Touches of cocoa bean and toasted malt. Horse blanket and barnyard notes throughout. Really nice.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with bright carbonation.

Overall, a really nice and complex sour. Jolly Pumpkin beers never cease to amaze me. The balance and funk of this beer is really nice. Really easy to drink. I will be seeking this out again.
