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...

sample at a tasting poured a murky orange color. the aroma is acidity and sour and couldn’t distinguish much else. the flavor I thought was just a sour blend. I couldn’t find any pumpkin or spice or cocoa. left with what is this. maybe another bottle would be a better example.

mathieuc (3257) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2015
Pours a hazy darker shade of golden with a medium white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of nutmeg, cinnamon and yogurt. Taste is gently tart and offers pumpkin spices and light juicy fruits. Body is medium, carbonation sustained but not prickly and mouthfeel is juicy. Overall a pretty good JP sour but this one is not quite awe inspiring like some of them are.

czar (7525) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2015
pours hazy/cloudy bright golden orange with a nice creamy white cap, some retention and lacing. orchard fruitiness - peaches, nectarines; grains of paradise, ginger, dill, bitter coffee beans - perhaps cacao touch. average carbonation, light body - oily; on-the-spot tartness, lightly astringent and woodsy-spicy finish. very good barrel-aged pumpkin ale - one of the very few good ones. much enjoyed!

How: Bottle (750 ml). Bought from Craftshack.

>>> A good Sour Ale with a pinpoint acidity and a tiny bit of the spices you usually get from Pumpkin beer.

- Slightly hazy orangey-golden with a small white head and some lacing.
- A good mix of citrus, mineral notes, herbal presence and oxidation (on purpose I think).
- There’s some spiciness (nutmeg, cloves) but nothing overpowering.
- Moderate sourness that fits pretty well with the on-purpose oxidation.
- Good balance for a Pumpkin Ale (that could very well be classified as a Sour/Wild Ale).

Flavors: Lemon, brettanomyces, herbal notes, oxidation, fruity notes, spices, nutmeg, cloves, roasted notes (cocoa?).
