While most of the beer I have enjoyed lately have either been Oktoberfests (one of my favorite styles), or some of my homebrewed beer (such as my recent Harvest Ale), I recently had a chance to sample Calabaza Blanca, one of the offerings from a new-to-Iowa brewer, Jolly Pumpkin.

It is Belgian-style witbier, and I felt it was a perfect example of the style.  It was light and refreshing, with a bit of a tart flavor. It did smell slightly fruity, and had a hint of a ‘sour’ scent to it. The finish was light and refreshing.  It was a great beer, and hope to see more around soon.

Have you had Calabaza Blanca?  What did you think?

  1. I see you mentioned that Jolly Pumpkin is new to the area. I’ve recently reallt gotten into their stuff, especially their “Bam” beers. The Bam series is their spontaneously fermented stuff and boy are they good.

    This past week I had Bam Biere and Weizen Bam, both fantastic. Weizen Bam is a spontaneous hefeweizen and it blew my mind.

    Keep the great reviews coming!
