Oro De Calabaza

Name – Oro De Calabaza
Country – United States
Type – Bière de Garde

Appearance – Poured a very cloudy orange color with a big fluffy white head.

Smell – Acidic sour apple, yeasty and a slight bit of vinegar.

Taste – Very crisp lemony and sour apple tartness to it.  There is a small bit of a vinegar taste but not overbearing at all.

I was careful with this bottle after many Jolly Pumpkin beers turn into gushers so I opened and poured the beer over the sink.  Luckily no gushing here, just a nice pour.  Another really good beer from America’s sour masters.  I still wish Shelton Brothers would bring more of their stuff down in the southern part of the state like they do central.

Overall Grade – A

    My review -> LOVE IT! Quite frankly I’m a huge fan of JP. I haven’t found a beer from then that I didn’t like and wasn’t unique. (love double negatives, makes ya think in the AM)

    Me too…this beer is spectacular. Last night I had a dream I was touring JP and tasting all their beers with Captain Ron. I rarely have dreams like that. It was quite fun.

    @Peter – I too am a big fan of their stuff. I have liked everything of theirs I have tried. I admit I was a little let down by La Roja but only because I built up something different in my head. But it was still good.

    @Nate – Absolutely awesome dream!

    This is a really solid beer. The sour apple you mentioned was the part that really dominated when I had it. I enjoyed this one a lot.
