Hazy amber colour. Fairly funky, oaky aroma. Spicy flavour, aggressively yeasty with light backing maltiness and a tart finish. Interesting but I’m not big on the aggressive yeastiness. Sammy (12204) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2006
Cuvee de autumn fire, a funky jolly pumpkin. Not as vinegary, bold, as the brown ale had earlier in the tasting. Orangey colour. Spicey, hint of roast,drinkable. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2007
The medicinal aroma of this ale took away from my enjoyment. Hazy brown with a large, good-lacing beige head, it smells of anise, oak, pepper, unripe sour cherries, and chewed mint leaves. There’s a slight sourness to the flavor that combines all the elements of the aroma, adds a quietly sweet malt, and has a touch of alcohol. Obviously well crafted, but this will probably be the only time that I will drink it.ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 4, 2007

App.: Dirty brown-copper, some dark chunks of yeast, large light tan head, good lacing.
Aroma: Bright and tangy, light funk, somewhat fruity, very light spice (particularly white pepper).
Palate: Medium body, medium-full effervescence, light powderiness.
Flav.: Quite herbal, almost minty, some cinnamon, a bit nutty; tangy and bright, nice bitterness and a bit of caramel malt; a little alcohol and some light herbal hops.
This was a GUSHER. Lost a good third of the bottle. Quaffable but not mind-blowing at this point. I’d like to try another bottle to be sure I got the real deal.
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of boboski. Pours a hazy, amber golden with huge amouts of sediment and a lively, of-white head that leaves some lacing. Lightly tart Brett-aroma. Fairly light in body with lightly fruity notes and a whiff of...cinnamon?? There’s some Bretty accents present without making the beer sour as such. Dry, slightly leathery finish. Interesting - as most Jolly Pumpkins. 301107 BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Bottle courtesy of the Merrit Island tasting hosted by mcbackus. Poured a golden orange color. Smell was woody and tart. Flavor was sweet sweet malts with a hint of sour apple. I like the sweet and malty ones so this one was okay in my book! Homer321 (5071) - Melboring, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Tasting at Backus’ Backyard Bash. sour apple, very cloudy. mouth full of carbonation. tart with a drying finish. typicaly JP brett. lacks general definition but drinkable. Adam77 (457) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Poured ruby red with fluffy white head. Aroma of spices. Maybe cinnamon. Somewhat spicy with some sweet finish. Cinnamon present. TBone (17532) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2009
Bottled (Pikkulintu, 0,75 ltr).
Hazy orange color, small off-white head. Very herbal, hayish, a bit perfumic nose. Sour, grapefruity, some tangerine peel, vanilla. Herbal-spicey cooking, weird beer. It’s like some Fantome saisons.
