Who could resist a beer with a label like this? Pirate cat on the label? I’m in!
Ran across this beer at the Harrison Street Whole Foods. They are also carrying Jolly Pumpkin’s Oro de Calabaza Ale. This is the first time I remember seeing Jolly Pumpkin Beer in California. Quite pleased to be able to sample one.
They call this a “Flanders” style ale. There is a bit of the sour character of Flanders Ales here, but very little of the wild yeast or Brett character typical of Flemish Ales.
All in all a tasty and well made beer.
Went very well indeed with tonight’s dinner of Pork Tenderloin roasted on red cabbage. Served it with herb roasted potatoes and apples and sauteed Asparagus and Tree Oyster mushrooms.
