3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to Blankboy. Probably the last rating I’ll share with him in a while. Appearance: Cloudy orange, thick snow white head. Aroma: wow, lovely sour nose, spices, chocolate, yeast. A little pumpkin. Flavour: oh lovely sour pumpkin at the start, lots of spices, tons of yeast, nice carbonation on the tongue. Not as ’pumpkin’ as I like my pumpkin beers but the sourness really makes it.

On tap at Republic in MN, big yeast funk aroma with a bit of cinnamon/pie spice. Taste is a bit of pumpkin and almost like some tart apple pie, finishes with a nice dry cinnamon.

A solid sour, aroma is of any traditional sour ale. There is a note of pumpkin in the taste, but not as strong of a taste as was hoping with it being a pumpkin ale. Tart and sweet in the front of the taste, finishing bitter at the end.

Tap at Sourfest. Aroma is funky earth and hay. Taste is squash like with a medium sourness that quickly goes away. Earthy notes again come into the taste.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Sugar Maple. Unfiltered chunky orange-brown. Soapy off-white head. My first sour pumpkin beer, and a nice one at that. Excellent interplay between the clean malt tones, mild pumpkin, and the steady sour feel. Soured tropical fruit, approaching pungent, but more on the sweet side. Barnyard lactic funk, very familiar flavors for JP. Fantastic, world class beer. Clean, not cloying or sugary, unlike most pumpkin beers. Earthy sour. My favorite pumpkin beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Orange/bronze with a small white head. Smells of that distinctive Jolly Pumpkin yeast with an extra herbal note. A thin mouthfeel starts oily, then turns fizzy. Sour flavors give way to some pie. Not much like any pumpkin beer I've had before, but a nice enough tart Belgian ale.

Good offering from jolly pumpkin. I'm a bit new to the sour world but I really liked this. I didn't really get the pumpkin flavor at all but liked it as a whole.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Enticing aroma of some pear, apricot, nutmeg, squash. Light amber color. Crystal Clear with ample head and lots of lacing. Up front with tart pear and apple, middle of squash and pumpkin with wintry spices like nutmeg and allspice. Finish is very dry. Highly carbonated with a smooth finish and light body. Great pumpkin beer without a huge focus on the pumpkin, tastes very natural.
