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...

Pours hazy amber with an off-white head. The aroma has lots of spice, some funk, some sourness, citrus, bugs and I really concentrate I can maybe / possibly detect a hint of pumpkin. Medium / light body that is very crisp and has subdued sharp carbonation. The taste starts with fruit, citrus, bugs and spice. There is a nice lightly toasted malt and it seems to have a hint of pumpkin. It seems like the pumpkin is smoothing out some of the JP funk more than giving it flavor. the finish is spicy and buggy just like I’d expect from these guys. Nice beer & probably my fave pumpkin beer since you can barely tell its there.

Whole foods. Tap. Almost bright amber. Nice blend of funk, tartness and spice on the nose. Dry, tart, spicy, a touch of lemon and cranberry. Light and effervescent. Nice pumpkin beer because it doesn’t taste like one.

Draught at Sycamore. Slight pumpkin taste furthered by a distinct wine body. Lots of tang and sour and apple in there as well. Very nice. Didn’t pick up much of Alan’s nibs. Thanks, Sanford!

On tap. Pours an orangish brown. Nice pumpkin and spice aroma and tastes with a perfect sour taste. Best pumpkin beer I had this year hands down.

dogfish120love (1023) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Nice and complex aroma. Notes of pumpkin and spices...you can almost smell the sourness. Pours a dark reddish orange with a thick white head. Flavor is pumpkin and spices a faint sourness with some pumpkin sweetness

Draft. Orange pour. Pumpkin, sweet malt, sourness, nutmeg, and clove. Interesting pumpkin beer as it is slightly soured.

tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Poured a pale fizzy brown, nose was spicy, holiday spices in the background, taste is very dry, a nice level of sourness, good funky finish.

MaBeer1972 (1391) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Ok, so the joke should be that this isn’t really a pumpkin beer. The tartness totally rules here. That being said, this light orange-amber brew has light fizzy carbonation and a very distinct dry tart mouthfeel. Perhaps a little spice, but not really. Drinkable, but don’t call this a pumpkin beer. Just another crazy sour from JP.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Bottle. Pours a bright orange color with a white head. Body changes to a more brownish color as it settles. Nose is Belgian yeast with light funk. Palate is playful and fun, crisp, clean. Flavor of light sour Belgian yeast and funk, some light sugar notes. No pumpkin detected, but a very nice beer.

Backlog notes. I didn’t feel like rating when this one came along, so my notes are sparse, but here’s what they said: Bottle. 2009 436/37. Awesome! Dry. Perfect attenuation. No cocoa. Hint of pumpkin on the finish. Carbonation pitch perfect. Dry as a bone. Spritzy mouthfeel. Earthy and slightly funky. Trademark JP malt profile. Wd. like to try fresh but this works just fine! Thanks Kevin!
