750ml in all-purpose Duvel glass. Pale amber with flat head and lace. Mild spicy cinnamon funky fruity caramel aroma. Funky fruity sweet pineapple and spicy flavors with funky spicy woody clean finish. Medium-light body. Nice mouthfeel. Very refreshing. I just can’t stop sipping it. Nice. fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Bottle. Aroma of plastic, caramel malt, toasted coconut, standard JP funk. Flavor a mix of caramel malt and that JP funk. A little more body and malt to balance the by now boring funk than in some other JP’s, but still not really getting me going. Dedollewaitor (16159) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 29, 2009
75cl bottle at VV tasting, Odense. Batch 335. Pours amber orange with a small creamy white head. Nose is funky - barnyard, oak, brett and hops. Lively mouthfeel - close to spritzy. Dry and warm taste with hops, oak, brett and vanilla. A little tart & yeasty. Very nice and complex beer. LilBeerDoctor (3931) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2009
Bottle. Pours a deep clear amber with a small ring of white head. Aroma of nice sour funk, sweettart candies, lemons, and a touch of oak. Flavor of sour brett and bitter, lemony hops in the finish. Pretty similar to any other Jolly Pumpkin beer, but it’s still quite tasty.

Pours a murky red. Lots of fruity brett nose. Some wood flavor, sour fruits, green apple. Slight nutty oily mouthfeel.
Christian (13670) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 24, 2009
Cloudy amber with a lasting white head. Aroma has fresh oak, coconut and bourbon notes on top of grapefruit and brett. Dry and tart grapefruit and brett flavour with a strong tannin character, with a faint note of christmas spices and possibly a nutty touch. There is a little spicy hotness in the finish. beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 23, 2009
750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazed golden amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted until mid-glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of malt, tart fruit, and some spice. The flavor is malt, yeast, tart fruit and spice all well represented and harmoniously combined. I am not getting any of the chestnut at all, but that is not detracting me from enjoying this beer. Lively carbonation. A bit spritzy on the palate. Enjoyable. mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2009

Wow POP it went upon opening it. Pour was cloudy orange color. Aroma was lots of different spices going on there, yeast light fruits mostly grapes I guess. Flavor was much the same, was a little thin on the flavor side, old lady floral came out in the flavor not good taste. Not bad not good.

This is the 1st of a roughly 100 beer backlog to be rated by the King of Suds. Bottle from Craft Ale. Pours clear deep caramelly coppery with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is earthy peaty, malty, with some piney and sour mashy fruit notes. Tastes tart, fruity, with earthy, nutty, and spicy notes at forefront, and a balanced malt late. Not terribly complex or palate hefty, this one is enjoyable but not an earth beater. I would not pay 20 bucks for this again, whatever that is worth.
