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.

Draft at Max’s Sour Fest. Pours hazy bright amber with a fizzy white head and some lacing. Tastes like light pumpkin, nice and dry, not too sweet, dry spice, gourd flavor. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like dry pumpkin, sweet spice, and breadiness.

Bomber bottle. Aroma is sweet, almost sour, with plenty if spices. Appearance is a hazy golden. Taste is spicy with some sour notes. As it warms, you can start to taste the pumpkin. Palate is carbonated, with a sour finish. Overall, a really good beer. I could see drinking a lot of this since I enjoy sours. It is not too sour to where you can only have one or two and be soured out.

Delicious. Favorite part is the aroma - spicy and sweet. Taste is subtle pumpkin and spice. Light taste and feel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle opened and shared by WillRunForBeer. Many thanks! To long-stemmed goblet, it pours a hazy, dark orange with which a snowy white head 1 finger in length stop atop. Aromas of persimmons, puréed bosc pears, sweet potatoes, hazelnuts, wheat white, and cured ham. Tastes the same with the addition of farmhouse yeast, acid, and kumquats by mid-palate to swallow. An all-around pleasing beer. Would have again.

Tasted on 2/1/14 from a capped 750mL bottle purchased quite some time ago, this one has been in the cellar for quite a while. Pours clear burnt orange with a thick white head that very slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is really ripe with that great, signature JP funk, with a bit of richness and a touch of dusty chocolate (coming through more as the beer warms) and baking spices. The flavor is much more sour with the cocoa on the back of the palate. This beer is a bit richer than some JP that I’ve had, I am guessing that can be attributed to the pumpkin. The body is light with nearly sparkling carbonation and a long sour, funky, and touch of rich cocoa finish.

Review from notes:
24oz pour on tap.
A - Hazy burnt orange with a small milky cap.
S - Acidic, sour pumpkin, various fall spices, allspice, nutmeg, lemons, old basement funk.
T - Lacto tartness right off the top, salty lemons, spices, follows the nose, allspice, nutmeg, light pumpkin in the background. Brett is heavy handed and brings in some basement funk. Finishes tart and crisp with ample dryness.
M - Light body, thin at times but it fits, low smooth carbonation, very dry finish.
This is my kinda Pumpkin Ale! Sour, dry, funky and spicy. The sour dominates with the pumpkin and spices lingering in the background and finally rounds out the finish with a crisp and snappy tartness. Awesome!

On tap at Brouwers. Pours a clear orangish Amber color with a thick white head with great retention that leaves great lacing. Smells of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and sour. Tastes of the same things in the smell with a sour twist. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with great carbonation. So glad Jolly Pumpkin is back on the market in Seattle. This is one of my favorite pumpkin beers.
