Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza Grand Reserve
Oro de Calabaza is brewed in the Franco-Belgian tradition of strong golden ales. Spicy and peppery with a gentle hop bouquet and beguiling influence of wild yeast. For our Grand Reserve Ron selected the following batches.Batch # Put in wood Months in wood157 7-29-13 21212 9-23-13 19293 12-23-13 16295 12-26-13 16327 2-4-14 15That is an average of 17.5 months in oak before we bottled the final product back in May 2015. We then allowed this batch to bottle condition, tasting every few weeks, until Ron said it was time to let these birds soar! The result combines the taste of green papaya and the near rind edge of a fresh pineapple entwined with thin sliced orange peel. With each successive sip a light wash of Brettanomyces ties together with our classic Jolly funk like a bow, finishing slightly dry and refreshing. This is a very limited release of one of our most acclaimed beers so don't miss out!
