Jolly Pumpkin "Bam Bière"
Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales - Dexter, Michigan USA
Farmhouse Ale (ABV 4.5%)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a murky medium golden orange with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that diminished down to a thin cap with a small collar and had some good sheets of streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a light grain malt, a mild floral hop and a funky barnyard Brett yeast with notes of green apple, citrus (orange), white wine, a mild peppery spice and a slight tartness.

The taste had a decent tartness and a slight fruity sweetness with a hint of green apple and a mild wine presence early on, then become very sour with a mild citrus sweetness, a strong funky yeast taste and a mild bitter peppery ending. The flavor lasted and average time proceeding the swallow with a tart citrus peel bitter taste left behind.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry, watery texture and a fizzy carbonation.

Overall a satisfying sweetly-tart Farmhouse Ale with a strong bitter presence and a nice spicy finish...
