Beer Review - Jolly Pumpkin

Biere De Mars

Biere de Mars from the Jolly Pumpkin is a limited release French style stock ale (specifically only 4 barrels are being released for sale). Mars is a dark almost plum colored beer with a thick cream colored head. Mars has a lightly sweet taste that comes through first followed by a vineagar sourness, and finishes on an an oakey bitterness. This beer is fruity and sour and remindes me of a pinot noir, Mars has great character and is among a unique group of beers the only beer I have had that comes close is an Old English Porter offered by New Glarus (also a limited release).  However if you like dark beers that are sweet and not too bitter like porters or bocks give Biere De Mars a try.

Malty —|———- Bitter

Light  ———-|— Dark

ABV: 7%


Oro De Calabaza

One of the Jolly Pumpkins regular offerings is the sour ale Oro De Calabaza, which has a wonderful golden wheat color and pours with a wonderful medium bodied head and a smell that is reminiscent of orange soda. There are two over arching notes in Oro firstly a sweet citrus flavor and then a spicy almost sour yeast flavor. While those are the over arching tones of there is quite a bit going on in this beer, including an oakey nutty flavor imparted by the oak barrel aging, and other subtle hints hidden within this beer. This is a complex balanced offering which is most reminiscent of Blue Moon or other similar wheat beers. If your looking for a sweet wheat beer similar to Belgium beers give this one a try I also suggest taking your time and enjoying the variety of flavors present.

Original Olga with Super Cheese (via JoeFoodie): shaved meat, tomatoes, onions, cheese, and Olga sauce (think thinned out tzatziki) on Olga’s secret recipe flatbread.
Visited Olga’s Kitchen in Saint Clair Shores this evening exactly one week after our menu tasting at the Sterling Heights location.  The food was equally impressive tonight as it was last week.
I’m generally not a huge fan of chain restaurants, but Olga’s started locally in Birmingham, MI, so it is local at heart.  Additionally, there have been times in the past when I was not impressed at all with Olga’s food.  It would come to the table cold, flavorless, & unpalatable.
This evening everything was hot, tasty, and well prepared - as it was last week.  I was especially impressed with the spinach pie - flaky, cheesy, & lots of spinach - a really good side dish.
Olga’s is doing a lot of work in social media in an effort to reach out to customers.  They are on Twitter & Facebook.
I’ve changed my mind about Olga’s - I’ll definitely be back.
