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 a hazy dark amber with a tall, creamy, pillowy and slightly chunky off white head that has excellent retention and leaves excellent lacing, really beautiful beer. Aroma is funky, lightly tart, woody, some light, and sweet earthy notes, pumpkin might not be the first thing to come to mind. Flavor is toast, cereal, light fruity and funky notes up front, followed by nice earthy pumpkin and other sort of darker earthy notes, maybe the yeast, maybe the cocoa, it’s all very subtle, but nice. Light body, creamy entry, neutral to dry, still creamy finish and light, but quite blanketing and lively carbonation. Really good all around, I can’t say that I would have picked out the pumpkin, were it not in the description, but it is delicious nonetheless.

Bottle split at the sleepy-rapping tasting at Ronny & Alex’s pad, CBC fine tuner, 30/04/15. Hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is apricot, bitter orange, straw, mandarin, light spice, pumpkin pie. Taste comprises bitter citric peel, lemon curd, dark fruit rinds, straw, light spice, nutmeg, light pumpkin flesh. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent pumpkin affair.

Bigger tasting at Ronny’s flat, Copenhagen. Hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, mild fine carbonation. A slight medicinal sourness with orange and blood orange. Even a little gueuzey wet wood. Light dry finish. Curious but fine.

Pours a cloudy yellow. Light and citrusy on the nose. Very lightly spicy but well balanced sour. Very good. Would be good in warm weather. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

umich03jm (2577) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Tap at Null. Cloudy light orange pour with a small head that fades to a ring. Aromas are peaches, lemon, sweet potato, herbal funk, and light brett. Tastes mostly like lemon juice and brett. I don’t get any pumpkin or cocoa unless you count the slight sweet potato taste I get. Light funk, light herbal spice. A boring beer to me with just a light sourness and lame flavors.
