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...

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2010 Hazy pour with a big head. Tart aroma with various fruit. Tart flavor as well various fruit and spice. The flavor is nothing like any pumpkin beer I’ve had before, but very typical to Jolly Pumpkin. Again, tart fruit flavors with a touch of spice, a bit of nuttyness and earth. Nothing really pumpkin about it but it is quite tasty. Medium body and refreshing for a fall beer.

I’m a big pumpkin beer fan and I was pretty excited to try this beer. I’ve known for quite some time that Jolly Pumpkin is known for their sour/wild ales, so I expected this to be somewhat on the sour side, but maybe with a kick of pumpkin. Well it was more sour kick then pumpkin, that’s for sure. I wish there could have been a bigger pumpkin presence, but every pumpkin beer can’t be a home run.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2011 Tap @ Choice City. Cloudy brown orange appearance with an off white head. Spicy, olive-like, tangy citrusy, orange fruity aroma. Tart, orange fruity, citrusy, somewhat spicy, floral, earthy flavor. Pretty nice brew.

BelgianBeerGal (3652) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2010 Draught at KC F.S. Very interesting take on the fall pumpkin ale. This was a straight up funky sour ale at first and then finished with some pumpkin and spice. Very light mouthfeel and refreshing. As nice as Pumking but in a totally different way.

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - OCT 28, 2010
On tap at Max’s in Baltimore. Pours copper orange with a thin white head. Aroma is funk, maybe a hint d pumpkin but not much. Leather, bandage good funk kick. Flavor is sour, tart a bit spicy. Really excellent beer.

DocLock (9238) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2010
750s from Capone’s and Smitty’s. Pours turbiud orangy jack-o-lantern colored (big surprise there, DUH). with frothy off white head that lingers longer than the ghost of your mother-in-law. Nose is funky, yeasty, nit much pumpkin but a lot of fruit and malt. Tastes tart, funky, fruity, floral, with backup hops and more pumpkin puree as it warms. Never gets sweet, stays complex throughout, and is very enjoyable. This one is much more complex than your run of the mill pumpkin beers, but not perhaps as enjoyable as something like ST Pumking.

jredmond (7132) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2013 Bottle split with and courtesy of pat. Pours a thick hazy amber body with nice carbonated head. Aroma is typical JP sour. Mouthfeel is tart and well carbonated with notes of sour and tart dominating - very slight pumpkin spice in the background. Great sour, not sure if I could group this with any other pumpkin brew.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - OCT 25, 2010
bottle had yeast gunk on inside of neck, odd, like it was stored upside down? wiped it off, but i dunno. aroma is yeasty and sour backed by pumpkin spices -- interesting mix, but not my favorite. sour pumpkin pie? flavor is mild, tart, fairly dry, with some sweet vegetables. pours hazy orange-amber with wispy white head. body is slightly on the thin side of medium, also a bit flat, with a small tart finish.

PilsnerPeter (3037) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2010
Bottle: Pours a hazy orange with a consistent white head. Complex funky aroma- cherry pit, mild citric notes, soft oak, perhaps a subtle touch of nutmeg. Thin body with a light flavor. Mildly tart- a citric note and quite tannic. The oaky tannins clash with what mild spices are there with a touch of later astringency. Close to being great, but somehow the tannins of the barrel and the spices clash.
