jolly pumpkin oro de calabaza artisan golden ale oak aged sour michigan bier - bottled 1/31/18, 8% abv. this is one of their year round releases and I think it’s one of their older recipes as well as one of the first really bretty beers I had. it’s got the same brett and oak notes that most of their beers have, which means there’s a combination of lemon and green apple with a lot of oak in the background, and a dry finish that has a lot more funk in it than I usually like. most of jolly pumpkin’s beers have a pretty similar set of basic flavors, which I usually like a lot, but all the oak puts this is a little bit too close to a bad chardonnay for me. the brett flavor comes through well enough that this is still pretty enjoyable, and I’m sure I’d like it more if I hadn’t had the special version they made with anchorage that’s one of the best brett beers I can remember yadda yadda

eta: I think vinegar is often an unhelpful description of sour beer because it brings rotting wine to mind but I think it fits here.
