This is a 4.7% ABV bottle-conditioned hoppy farmhouse ale from Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales of Dexter, Michigan. This is batch 1072 bottled on 4-16-2012. I wish it was fresher, bu it was in the discount bin ($4), and I figured it worth a try. Bam is the brewery's Extra Special Dog who survived being hit by a car.
The beer pours a hazy dark amber and medium
copper brown in color. There is a massive, foaming head that is off-white to
very light brown in color. The aroma is very floral and very yeasty, with an
earthy, funky, tangy tartness. The taste follows the aromas, all sitting over
roasted malt. The finish is fairly bitter and quite dry. This is massively
floral, yeasty and funky. There is much leather in the taste as well. It is
finely and intensely carbonated, true to its bottle conditioned style. This is
like drinking old, dusty leather, infused with marigolds and geraniums, but in
an oddly pleasant way.
