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...

750ml bottle from bev4less. Batch 610. Pours a cloudy copper color with a huge clumpy white head that has good retention and crazy lacing. The aroma is strong and overtly funky with sour pumpkin, oak, vanilla, cloves and brett. The taste profile is similar to the nose, loads of sour pumpkin, mild spices, biscuit, lemons and persimmons. The palate was smooth with prickly carbonation. Finishes long and sour. Overall: Very nice sour pumpkin ale.

Draft from The Good Pie. Pours a clear, bright amber color with a finger-thick off-white head. Some lace. Aroma of sour grapes, tart apples, fall spices, funk, and a little bit of a vegetal/earthy note that must be the pumpkin. Flavor is also sour, tart, and fruity, with spices, sweet and toasted malts, funk, and more pumpkin than the nose. Light-bodied, with subtle but crisp carbonation and an apple juice mouthfeel. Funky finish. The pumpkin here is very subdued and gives way to a very cool spicy, sour beer. I didnít quite know what to expect but enjoyed this a lot.

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 3, 2010
Bottle. Poured a hazy orangish copper with a small tan head. Nose of sweet tart fruit, with smoe spice. Taste is mix of fruit, light pumpkin, spice and sweet malts. A bit of tart fruit in there as well, though not as funky as most other JP brews. Overall, a decent and interesting pumpkin ale, thatís not overlly funky or pumpkiny.

Batch 610. Bottled 8/13/10. The beer pours a yellow-orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma begins as your basic pumpkin ale. I get some nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin. However, since it is a Jolly Pumpkin beer, you know there will be some tartness and it is present in the aroma. The flavor is pumpkin, brett, nutmeg and cinnamon. There is also a low amount of tartness in the flavor, but the beer is more funky than sour. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice, interesting take on a pumpkin beer. Glad I got to try this one.

Bottle and draft from Caponeís. Pours an opaque light brownish orange with a thick, bubbly, frothy white head. Aroma of nutmeg, ginger bread, tart, sourdough bread, and subtle notes of fresh pumpkin and dry hops. Medium bodied with a rich, tonge-coatingly tart palate. Slight sourness through the finish with notes of pumpkin rising before the final flourish. Very cool Pumpkin ale from the Jolliest of Pumpkins. Happy Halloween!

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Bottle (batch 604)... Poured hazy, dark, burnt orange with a thick, fizzy, white head with nice retention. Some Brett on the nose, funky and musty with yeast and spices. Drinking, it tasted tart with a mild pucker, the funish showcased the pumpkin-squash notes with hints of cloves, nutmeg. Clean yeast flavors, and even a mild hoppiness in this brew.

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 Iíve 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.

Iím a big pumpkin beer fan and I was pretty excited to try this beer. Iíve 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, thatís for sure. I wish there could have been a bigger pumpkin presence, but every pumpkin beer canít be a home run.
