While at the Michigan Cask Fest, I had a chance to try a very special beer from Jolly Pumpkin. It is Saison Z. I guess they do not release this beer to the public that much. This is my second beer from this brewery on this blog. If you read my earlier beer blog post, you know the history of this midwest craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know Jolly Pumpkin. Let us get into this awesome soul ale.
It had a cloudy brownish color with a constant off white color head. The aroma has a sour notes. The taste has a heavy sour notes with a nice warm sour finish. It is a sipping beer.

Closing out, I had a chance to try this beer as a cask ale. It is a real ale and the true way to drink any beer in the world. This beer was something else and it is in a good way. I love the taste profile but it was not overly sour like most sour ales. It was just right for my taste buds. I had to go back a few times because I enjoyed it so much. If you hear this beer being any event, I would drop everything to get your hands on it. I wish it was packaged and was available a little bit more. It is very rare and I am honor to be one of the few to have tried it at this event. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
