Beer Review - Jolly Pumpkin Rosie Del Barrio Wild Ale

Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales - Rosie Del Barrio Wild Ale

Beer Type: American Wild Ale - 8.20% ABV

Appearance: Bomber with some art of a cat jumping off a building in an alley. Beer poured a hazy golden orange color with a thin but frothy beige head.

 Mostly just sour and wild yeast aromas. Wild ales always reminds me a bit of sweet tarts candy.

First Drink:
 Sour (of course) but pretty diverse hits of flavor - berries, lemons, something a bit woodsy and vanilla.

 Medium bodied with good carbonation.

Last Drink:
 A lot of stuff going on here. More ripe fruit flavors (stone fruit?) and something a bit floral as well. Complex.

 This is a sipper if ever there were one!

 I believe this was a one off special beer (says it was made for the rare beer club). It was given to me as a gift.

4.5 out of 5. A nice wild sour with quite a bit going on.
