JOLLY PUMPKIN LUCIERNAGA

NOTES: Draft @ Brick Store Pub in Hotlanta

STYLE: Belgian Pale Ale

ABV: 6.5%

APPEARANCE: Hazy orange

HEAD: Thick, pillowy white head with very good retention

LACING: Thorough and unflagging

NOSE: Fruit, spice and everything nice. Oranges and apricots, coriander and clove, and a healthy dose of funky Brettanomyces yeast aroma.

TASTE: Slightly sour citrus fruits up front with a heady mix of sweet, pale malt and big, peppery spices in the middle. The finish is drying, slightly bitter, and mouth-puckering. The funk from the Brett is subtle, but present throughout the sip.

MOUTHFEEL: Nice effervescence cuts through a medium-to-light body

DRINKABILITY: Highly drinkable and refreshing. Not overwhelming at all, but plenty of complexity and character to make it worth revisiting. Another solid effort from Jolly Pumpkin.

RATING: 3 Hops
