3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a slightly hazed peach color with a large white head, maybe just a bit off-white.
S: The nose has the signature tartness of Jolly Pumpkin with a lot of hibiscus notes to it. Quite a bit of funkiness to it with notes of hay and wet oak. There’s a bit of a lemon zest note to it, too.
T: A strong flavor of chestnuts comes through and provides a strongly "meaty" flavor. The tartness here is minor, but certainly noticeable. Again, lots of floral notes, specifically hibiscus, with a bit of rose petals. Quite a bit of spice to it, also, but I don’t really notice anything in particular.
M: The body is medium with a medium but lively carbonation.
D: Even for a Jolly Pumpkin beer, this is pretty interesting. I liked it quite a bit, but it’s definitely different from most of their beers.
