COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ok, so the joke was that Jolly Pumpkin doesn’t 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...

Vignale (3323) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2015
Flaska från demolenbeershop drucken med ölföreningen. 2012 vintage. Skummar ur flaskan, orange disig vätska. Typiska JP-dofter och smaker. Mycket lakto- och fatkaraktär av fuktigt trä. lätt sötma med en lätt pumpafruktighet och lite kryddor, kanel, kokos. Mjuk syra. Ett helt ok pumpaöl som inte är överkryddat. Gott

jjgmd (1986) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2015
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

mghj (36) - pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2015
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.
