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...

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Pours a orangey color with a sudsy, slightly off white head. The aroma is clovey, spices. The taste is cloves, spices, maple syrup, brown sugar, etc. Has a slight ’sour ale’ or gueze flavor to it that I really enjoy.

Blairgus (2586) - California, USA - JUL 11, 2014
11 July 2014, bottle. Light orange. Nose is like vinaigrette. Thin body and mildly fizzy. A bit tart, not much pumpkin. Meh.

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2014
Malts, roasty, various, perhaps too many spices. Bit metallic, watery mouth feel. I had a hard time tasting any pumpkin in this and I didn’t enjoy it that much.

Hazy orange color, medium persistent head. Aromas of wild yeasts, fruits, wood, ground cherry and citrus. Flavors of wild yeasts, pumpkin, spices, wood, cocoa and citrus. Good mouthfeel. Couleur orange trouble, moyen col de mousse persistant. Arômes de levures sauvages, fruits, bois, cerise de terre et agrumes. Saveurs de levures sauvages, citrouilles, épices, bois, cacao et agrumes. Bonne texture en bouche.

hayduke (3342) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 9, 2014
I brought this one from California to share at Dark Lord Day m 2014 in Munster, Indiana. Glad I did. Pours a light amber with a big robust off-whie head. Nose of roasted malts and pumpkin. Some spice. Medium body. Smooth in the mouth. Flavor is a bit on the funk side. But very tasty and easy drinking.

jandd1983 (2533) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Sampled at DLD 2014. It poured a hazy orange color with a small off-white head. The aroma was fruity, malty, spicy, yeasty pumpkin notes. The taste was fruity, slightly tart, spicy pumpkin in the aftertaste.

bubblehouse (351) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 26, 2014
Descent offering. Sour but not really overkill. Not my favorite jolly pumpkin but still worth drinking.

YigSvartka (58) - Manitoba, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Served cool, large frothy head, orange/red hue. Aroma of spices, nutmeg, sour grapefruit and alcohol. Highly carbonated. Taste is sour, slightly bitter, spice is definitely present, but barely any pumpkin. Good, but I become quite dismayed when pumpkin is advertised and the taste is lacking of such.

unclemike (2222) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - APR 8, 2014
Cloudy medium amber, thin white head. Mild funky nose, but not much of it. A little bit of pumpkin flesh there. Mild, nearly neutral mid-palate and finish.

Pours hazy copper with a white head. Aroma is tart lemon some pumpkin and spice. Taste is mildly tart with pumpkin and spice.
