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...

Pours with a small but of head and beautiful orange cloudy color. Aroma is like a good hefe with lots of orange and floral. Taste is very different. Acidic and fruity with good carbonation. I don't really pick up much pumpkin in this one but it's tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jake65 (3125) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle. Copper color, great clarity, short lived sandy head. The smell of sweet pumpkin, associated spices, and light oak abound. Tastes like a pumpkin sour, some bitterness too. Finishes with a lingering sour oaky note. A little of the cocoa is noticeable, but it stays in the background. Really nice take on the pumpkin beer.

Vignale (2852) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2015
Flaska från demolenbeershop drucken med ölföreningen. 2012 vintage. Skummar ur flaskan, orange disig vätska. Typiska JP-dofter och smaker. Mycket lakto- och fatkaraktär av fuktigt trä. lätt sötma med en lätt pumpafruktighet och lite kryddor, kanel, kokos. Mjuk syra. Ett helt ok pumpaöl som inte är överkryddat. Gott
