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...

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 doesnít 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. Didnít pick up much of Alanís 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.

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.

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.

Ok, so the joke should be that this isnít 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 donít call this a pumpkin beer. Just another crazy sour from JP.

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 didnít feel like rating when this one came along, so my notes are sparse, but hereís 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!

Sour and funky aroma. I like it! Pours a rich amber color with modest head that dissipates quickly. Sour tasting with the Jolly Pumpkin house funk. Not a lot of pumpkin flavor at first, just a nice tart/sour malty flavor. After the initial sourness goes away, a very nice pumpkin and chocolate aftertaste remain. Once you know what to look for, the pumpkin has a fresh from the garden character. This beer is not the typical pumpkin pie spice beer we get this time of year, but is a very subtle and complex beer that gives you something new to discover the more you look for new things to discover. Its odd, I love this beer and it is more complex than other pumpkin beers, but in a pumpkin beer competition it would not do well because the pumpkin is not in your face.
