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...

Bottle from Rozi’s in Lakewood. Pours a medium to dark golden with a three finger white head. Somewhat sweet aroma with plain pumpkin puree, nutmeg, white apple, and some pleasant sourness. Flavour is very clean and refreshing, with more pumpkin, bready yeast, pear, and green apple. The finish is pumpkin pie spice. This is a very clean and composed brew that I found to be thoroughly enjoyable.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Aroma is slightly funky pumpkins and baking spices. Flavor is medium tart with pumpkins in the mid-palate and a tart, dry, funky finish slightly reminiscent of electrical fires.

ilovedarkbeer (2227) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Batch 436/437. Pours a deep orange color with a small to medium sized off white head. Nose is plastic, white pepper, sour pears, and a bit of cocoa. Taste combines the same elements but is sweeter and a bit earthy. Tangy mouthfeel with a medium to long lingering finish. Nice.

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 28, 2009
Bottle. Poured a hazy amber orange with a medium thick off-white head. Aroma had clear pumpkin note with a bit of spice. The flavor was odd, but worked nicely with the beer starting with sweet and spicy pumpkin notes, but finished with a earthy sour note.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Golden orange pour with very small tight white head. Almost no aroma but big immediate flavor. Definate pumpkin and nutmeg flavor. But the real backbone of this beer is the traditional jolly pumkin sour earthy flavor.

wcampbell (721) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - NOV 21, 2009
On draft at the brewpub. Some sour ale like tartness that was good. Not much pumpkin flavor or body. No creaminess here. Brief peppery finish. Some spices, mainly cinnamon, but not enough malts. I was guessing this was more like 4% alc.

TheEpeeist (3277) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2009
25.4 oz bottle. Clearish pink brown with a lacy white head. Odd nose, very floral with tulip, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon and earthy pumpkin. Medium body with fizzy carb. Taste is lemon pith, vanilla yoghurt, brief cinnamon and sour apple. Tartness pushes back the pumpkin with light spices.

AmEricanbrew (5616) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 19, 2009
2008 batch@Elysian 2009 GPBF. Hazy amber with a white head. Nice dry oak, mild JP funk aromas. Medium body with light carbonation. Nice flavor is earthy dusty pale malts, toasted oak, mild dry spices. Lightly sour throughout. Little to no pumpkin flavor in this aged keg.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Thanks to Northernbrews for bringing this to San Diego: Nose is sour with pumpkin notes underneath, in fact, i get a lot of the pumpkin in the nose along with nice complimenting tartness. It pours hazy orange with a spotty ring of lather above. Lighter bodied yet funky with lactic twang and tartness dominating with subdued pumpkin somewhat hiding underneath...finish is a little flemmy yet funky..flavors are clean and tart.
