Bit of malt and caramel with spice. But from whatever I remember, changed when all JPs got funky. theisti (4126) - Kansas, USA - JAN 7, 2008
750 ml bottle, shared by tjthresh. Pour is a murky brown - orange with a big, fluffy dirty white head. There is some visible sediment. Aroma of some nuttiness and only a whisper of the signature JP barnyard funkiness. Taste is pretty interesting, roasted nuttiness, some bright acidity and a nice full body. The finish highlights the lingering chestnut. Some traces of the barnyard yeasty funkiness, but certainly the most subdued of any JP I have had. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Bottle; big time gusher here. Poured a orange-brown color with a very big off white head. Small brown pieces in the head. Aroma was very interesting. Orange, apples, nuts, and brett. Flavor wasn’t quite as good as the aroma. Compared to other Jolly Pumkin beers, the amount of bretty yeastiness is on the smaller sie. Some peppery tartness. A little bit watery on the palate. Solid, but not spectacular. SDalkoholic (2386) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Bottle from South Bay Drugs. The liquid was viewed by me as a pure color of gold and had a frothy topping of head. In the nose, I detected a buxom aroma of yeast in the style I find in most saisons from Belgium. As for the flavor, it was a tart and slightly sour bite but also had a chewy profile that made me think beyond what I’m used to with Belgian strong(s). Pretty much the key components of this genetic flavor are apple, grape and unknown spices. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle to my head. Pours drown amber with white lacing. Light carbonation. Aroma is that classic jolly pumpkin funk, spice, and no etoh. Flavor is sour tongue tingling and dry. Maybe some nuts in the finish. Good.

750, corked and baled, thanks, BVC! Pours hazy gold with a lacy white head. Funky, brett-laden nose. Light body and medium carbonation. A dash of fruit in the flavor. Dry and sour finish. gabrielsyme (66) - Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2008

Crushed with Jakebra. Interesting brew. Spicy, funky nose. Flavor has some nuts, some orange, some funky brett and subtle sourness. Very light, dry finish. Incredibly drinkable, and pretty damn nice. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2009
