COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ok, so the joke was that Jolly Pumpkin doesnít brew a pumpkin beer. Well, now we do. Just this one. Packed with real pumpkins, hints of spice, and a gentle kiss of cocoa to liven the soul. An everyday easy way to fill your squashy quotient. Guess now folks will have to find something else to joke about...

With Z, pours a rusty orange color with a nice beige head...bomber. Nose is oak strewed with spices, with some tartness. Taste is oaky with spice and a hint of cacao, very subdued outside of the oak. Ends on the oaky notes with a moderately long dry finish! Imaginative pumpkin ale ! Quaff Score 8 / 10

Bomber. Pours a copper orange with an off white head and aroma of spices and oak. Taste is of spices and noticeable oak along with tarty fruitiness that continues into the spiced, tart finish.

On draft in a tulip glass, clear golden orange color with a little off-white head. Generally a little sour, with a taste of lemon and herbs, mainly basil. Very light taste of pumpkin pie spices, overall one of the best pumpkin beers I have had, and out of the ordinary, in regards to the pumpkin pie spices.

Pours a cloudy orange with a tall khaki-cream head that leaves some ropes of lacing. Nose involves rustic straw, fruity and earthy notes, leafy stuff, toasted stuff, and light pumpkin spices underneath. Somewhat sweet, decently tart, somewhat bitter. Light to medium bodied, active, juicy, spicy, finishing very dry and tart. More or less a sour brown, and quite enjoyable. Pumpkin takes a backseat mercifully.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2016 Tap at the Watershed

After the devastating lost to MSU this afternoon, I felt like I needed to do something in sympathy with Ann Arbor and if itís a $13 glass of JP pumpkin beer, so be it. Iíve never actually had this one, and itís a wonderful surprise. No pumpkin spice bullshit, lovely JP tartness, tiny hint of sweet. Dang, I like this so much. Itís a home run, no doubt, and surely the best pumpkin beer Iíve ever had.

Revisit in a 750 ml bottle from the Beer Authority. It lives up to the previous rate. Almost seems thin like pasta without salt at first sip, but that impression quickly goes away and itís just a delight from there on in.

Light, effervescent sour beer. Copper colored with thin white head. Aroma is barnyardy with a hint of cinnamon. Taste is tart with a hint of pumpkin spice and a little cocoa in the dry finish. A very easy drinking sour beer with well-balanced complexity.

Pours a golden amber with small fizzy head. Aromas of light spice, a little funk, and some fruit. Flavors are a tart earthiness, light spice, and a touch of

sample at a tasting poured a murky orange color. the aroma is acidity and sour and couldnít distinguish much else. the flavor I thought was just a sour blend. I couldnít find any pumpkin or spice or cocoa. left with what is this. maybe another bottle would be a better example.
