Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza (golden pumpkin), is a Biere de Garde that's 8.00% ABV and available all year in bottles, casks, and on-tap. This oak barrel aged, bottle conditioned ale is brewed in the Franco-Belgian tradition of special golden ales, and hopped with spicy pepper hops and wild yeast, then refermented in the bottle. This pumpkin pours out a rich, clear gold with a frothy white head that laces the glass. Oro de Calabaza's nose is of lemon and apple and pepper, and the taste follows, with flavors of fresh lemon, churned butter, and spicy hops over an oak background. The finish is dry and tantalizing, makes you want to take another sip, and Oro's strong body has a lot of fizzing and popping going on. Try this heady pumpkin in a tulip or oversized wine glass at 45-50 degrees F. Oro de Calabaza is a good beer to store in your cellar for a few years, it ages nicely.
