COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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...

Bottle. Pour is dirty copper/ orange with a thin ring of white foam. Aroma is tart, light malt, and a very light pumpkin spice character. Flavor is quite tart- did not see that coming but I really liked it. Also notes of funk and lightly roasty finish with a lightly herbal finish.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - FEB 26, 2010
750ml bottle by way of beastiefan2k. Funky, spicy aroma, lightly fruity and tart, perhaps a hint of the pumpkin, farmy and very lightly citric, also some faint wood. Cloudy medium orange color, head is fine and lasting. Flavor is similarly funky, spicy, tart and very lightly sweet, seeing some mild hop bitterness and fruit creep in towards the finish, drying out somewhat and really chock full of yeast character from beginning to end. Nicely balanced and some decent complexity, mouthfeel is smoothly effervescent and lightly acidic with a medium body. Pretty nice.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - FEB 17, 2010
750 ml bottle shared by beastiefan2k. Thanks. Poured a hazy gold with a thin white head. Fairly sour aroma with just a hint of pumpkin pie spice. Nice tart flavor. Very refreshing. Lighter bodied. Some dark sugar in the middle. Tart cherry in the finish. I didnít get a whole lot of pumpkin, but enjoyable none the less.

theisti (3504) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - FEB 16, 2010
750 ml bottle shared by beastiefan2k. Batch 436/437 marked on the sticker on the back of the bottle. Pour is a hazed orange golden with a smallish white head. Aroma of sourish sweet, nutmeg, some of generic cooking vegetable. Overall the nose is interesting and bright. Taste is the vegetable of the nose (showing more pumpkin in the taste), then really quickly moves to sour and lactic, along with the yeast clove and nutmeg. Quite a bit going on, but soft and nicely integrated. Really unique taste. Palate is highly carbonated with a medium to thin body. Nice one, thanks for sharing Eugene, I had really wanted to try this one.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - FEB 15, 2010
750ml, batch 436/437, thanks for sharing Eugene. Pours a hazy golden with a minimal white head. Aroma is fresh pumpkin and nice complimentary spice, with a hint of chocolate and some dank must. Flavor leads with more brief pumpkin, spice and finishes with some sour notes. A little too much carbonation but nice overall. Classically JP if that makes sense...

hopscotch (10142) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2011 Enjoyed the beer tonight on draft at Coffee Disrict in Delray Beach. Bottle (Batch 436/437)Ö Cloudy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is earthy and woody with an acidic back bone, but I get no pumpkin. Smells nice nonetheless. Light to medium-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and lively carbonation. The flavor is fairly sour and I do pick up just a touch of pumpkin. Finishes tart, coarse and bone-dry. Bottle co urtesy of cmillward!

Shared by bhensonb. Pours clear golden with a fluffy white head and a fruity aroma. Yes, this is a pumpkin beer, with some allspice and lots of vegetable. On of the better pumpkin ales I have had.

750 from Guerde, Styles or ericandersnavy. Had it for awhile. Apologies for the bad memory. Pours light amber with a foamy three=-finger head. Smells of pie spice and funk. Medium body with mild carbonation. Lightly sour, towards medium funky. Excellent.

Got to try a bottle of this thanks to, "hannont". Colour... golden-orange with no head. Nose... Whoa! Get a whiff of Dr. Funkandspice!! With some polystyrene thrown in as well! Palate... bright, lively acidity on the tongue, spicy notes, tangy on the soft palate, a general funkiness with a medium oak, dryish finish.
