COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jaw-Jacker balances our finest malted barley with a bit-o-wheat and is complimented with a citrus hop kick and just the right amount of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice for a nice marriage of pumpkin pie and beer. Made in the fall to celebrate the changing of the season.

Orange-amber body with a clinging white head. The aroma stands out immediately and is dominated by spices. Smells like potpouri. Pretty smooth mouthfeel, a bit oily. The spices are not as prominent in the flavor. More of the pumpkin flavor comes through there. Finishes somewhat sour. Not a bad pumpkin beer.

Draft at the stone street tavern on stone street . Pours light tan color with a very sweet aroma. Very artificial pumpkin pie flavor. Eh

2oz taster on tap, at HopCat Broad Ripple. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white kind of creme-coloured head. Full sheet of lace. Great floral, kind of spicy, mildly citrusy aroma. Definitely get nutmeg, reminiscent of a pumpkin beer. Moderate sweet, light to moderate sweet, kind of spicy. Solid, interesting stuff. I can dig it.

Draft to taster at Arcadia in Kalamazoo. Looks good for the style; a fairly transparent orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of pumpkins nutmeg with a bit of citrus from the hops. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced, and zestier. Average on the palate with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Solid, but smells better than it tastes.

Julie says too much nutmeg and allspice there is a bit of a hop bitter bite not really a Julie beer. She gives a 2.0

I like this seasonal beer. My other fav is Dogfish Head Punkin. If you enjoy a pumpkin ale you should enjoy this flavor packed beer from the D. Clive and other seasonal spices are very prevalent. Enjoy. Cheers! - Steve ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lots of spices with tart like finish. Enjoyable but probably a little too overdone on the cinnamon.

Poured a hazy amber colour with a thin head. Sweet and spicy aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Maybe notes of clove and pumpkin, but spices are fairly overwhelming. Taste is primarily malt with the cinnamon and ginger spice. A slightly bitter aftertaste ends this crisp medium brew that is easy to drink, yet disappointing for pumpkin seekers.

12oz bottle from Wine Academy. Poured a deep orange-amber with a rather small foamy light beige head. Aroma starts off with some sort of vomit-pumpkin mixture that is overrun by nutmeg and allspice. Body is medium to slightly fuller with strong tingly carbonation and an average to quicker fading, for the strength of the taste anyway, aftertaste. Flavor is all allspice and nutmeg up front, followed by some earth and candle. Meh.

Murky solid orange pour with dense but short offwhite head. Strong aroma of nutmeg and allspice, some cinnamon, sweet chai tea, faint hints of metallic noble hops too. Low carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, bitter but clean finish. Taste is similar to the aroma but stronger noble hop presence, noticeable ginger, yeast is present too and somewhat belgian, wheaty, banana. Well done but a bit sweet to call a favorite personally.

Best part is the aroma. Nutmeg and clove... It’s pretty spectacular. Like chain tea and Apple pie.... The taste is weird. Hoppy enough to have a refreshing bite with the spice taking a back seat... It’s like an oktoberfest mated with an apple pie and the confused offspring somehow became alcoholic...
