Funky Pumpkin – Spiced Sour Ale
Slated for an early September release in six packs of 12 ounce bottles
and on draft, Funky Pumpkin is our unique spin on a pumpkin beer. Spiced
with nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and ginger, the final beer is a blend
of brewhouse soured beer and beer aged in a stainless steel tank with
brettanomyces. Tart and slightly earthy, Funky Pumpkin features a subtle
toffee/caramel malt character that allows pumpkin pie spices to shine.
ABV – 5.8% IBU – 28
My thoughts? I found enough pumpkin pie spiciness to satisfy on that level with a really pleasant and some Brettanomyces bringin' the funk. It's got a dry finish I thought, making me instantly want another, which is something I rarely do with these "pumpkin style" beers. I'm a big fan of this one and want more. Soon.
And please save all your pumpkin beer hate. It falls on deaf ears here.
