On tap at Max’s in Baltimore. Pours copper orange with a thin white head. Aroma is funk, maybe a hint d pumpkin but not much. Leather, bandage good funk kick. Flavor is sour, tart a bit spicy. Really excellent beer. DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2010
750s from Capone’s and Smitty’s. Pours turbiud orangy jack-o-lantern colored (big surprise there, DUH). with frothy off white head that lingers longer than the ghost of your mother-in-law. Nose is funky, yeasty, nit much pumpkin but a lot of fruit and malt. Tastes tart, funky, fruity, floral, with backup hops and more pumpkin puree as it warms. Never gets sweet, stays complex throughout, and is very enjoyable. This one is much more complex than your run of the mill pumpkin beers, but not perhaps as enjoyable as something like ST Pumking. jredmond (8839) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2013 Bottle split with and courtesy of pat. Pours a thick hazy amber body with nice carbonated head. Aroma is typical JP sour. Mouthfeel is tart and well carbonated with notes of sour and tart dominating - very slight pumpkin spice in the background. Great sour, not sure if I could group this with any other pumpkin brew. kopher (593) - New York, USA - OCT 25, 2010
bottle had yeast gunk on inside of neck, odd, like it was stored upside down? wiped it off, but i dunno.
aroma is yeasty and sour backed by pumpkin spices -- interesting mix, but not my favorite. sour pumpkin pie?
flavor is mild, tart, fairly dry, with some sweet vegetables.
pours hazy orange-amber with wispy white head.
body is slightly on the thin side of medium, also a bit flat, with a small tart finish. PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2010
Bottle: Pours a hazy orange with a consistent white head. Complex funky aroma- cherry pit, mild citric notes, soft oak, perhaps a subtle touch of nutmeg. Thin body with a light flavor. Mildly tart- a citric note and quite tannic. The oaky tannins clash with what mild spices are there with a touch of later astringency. Close to being great, but somehow the tannins of the barrel and the spices clash.

750ml bottle shared by jsprime. amber pour with a lasting off white head. funky JP nose. flavour starts with acid upfront, then some pumpkin flesh, spices at the finish. very nice seasonal from JP. DYCSoccer17 (3714) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 23, 2010
750mL bottle purchased at the Davis Food CO-Op. Batch 611 bottled on 08/18/10. Aroma is funky, but somewhat smooth with some vanilla notes and a little floral/perfume, too. Light cereal. Moderately hazy golden-orange body with a fizzy whitish head. Starts a little tart and acidic. Has some vegetal notes in the middle with some chewiness. Finishes with flavors that resemble cool McDonald’s french fries. This is decent, but not overly enjoyable or worth the $16 price tag. jeffreygerwig (5) - USA - OCT 23, 2010 does not count
Amber in color with a small head, hint of spice with very little pumpkin taste, aroma is excellent, and the sour first taste to the sweet finish is intersting. bigguns22 (806) - Maryland, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Not the best pumpkin beer but the most unique, first sour punk beer I have had.Aroma is great pumpkin,spice and sweet tarts.Pours cloudy amber with a off white head.Starts tart then sweet and ends sour.Over all great beer . twindog (274) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - OCT 23, 2010
pours a hazy orange, with a med to small head. Aroma of sweet tarts, and spice. Taste has pumpkin notes but can not taste and spice. This is a very unqiue beer even if your not a big pumpkin beer drinker.
