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...

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle. A big, creamy, off-white head sits on top of an unclear, golden body. Lacings. It’s lighlty spiced and with a bretty touch, lemon and barnyard. Sourish, lemony and barnyardish flavor, not much spice or pumpkin shining through. Full to medium body, dry and pleasantly carbonated. A nice one indeed. Maybe the beers from JP tend to be a bit too identical, but I like it anyway. 110827

MiP (13663) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2011
Draught, 5.9%. Good mildly sour aroma, a little orange juice, hint of funk. Cloudy dark orange colour. Small stable white head. The flavour has a milder sourness than expected. I thought it was going to be more acidic, but this is similar to Orval plus a little lemon. Also a little funky, very nicely so. The finish dries out a little bit, like Berliner Weisse, but a lot less. All in all very good.
