3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle- Pours hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma is tart, dark fruits, spices. The taste is barnyard funk, minerals, nutmeg, other spices, pretty tart, I wish it had more depth, it seems like it’s missing something, similar to other JP beers, I wish the chestnuts were more prominent, they are there just subtle. Body is medium and carbonation is high. Good.

There is no mistaking jolly pumpkins beers! Cloudy deep orange/brown with a medium just off white head. Classic tart musty basement aroma and flavor. This one adds in a nice nutmeg and slight dark fruit flavor.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle. As you’d expect from JP, this beer is a funky/sour take on the style, with loads of horse blanket and basement aromas, still showcasing some great chestbut and cocoa spiciness. Overall a great beer once again from JP.

750 bottle. Pours a dark amber with full head. Aromas of wet wood, caramel and toasted malts. Flavours of green wood, light spice, oranges, and malts. Maybe some nutty flavour, but I read the label first. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Batch 901, Bottled October 19, 2011.
Appearance: The body is a hazy light amber with a tall white head that dissipates rather quickly to a dense white coating with a tall ring.
Aroma: Slight Autumn spices of cinnamon and clove with a light fruity tartness I can’t put my finger on, cherries? Hints of red wine vinegar too. This smells great.
Taste: Mildly tart with a small hint of vinegar, but it quickly picks up on a dry nutty and cinnamon/nutmeg finish that abruptly stops. Sort of a potpourri finish.
Palate: Light bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: I wonder if this has gotten more tart with age or lost it, I also wonder if the body was more beefy fresh. This drinks nicely now, though I wish I’d saved it for a nice Autumn night.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very cloudy pour with an average sort of head that lasts and leaves a nice little lace. Spice jumps out on the nose with a nutty sort of edge. There’s a definite lactic note there as well, and a real lemony quality. All the same notes come out on the palate in much the same way. Very interesting and lightly sour.
