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...

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.

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.

i like the label... the aroma is very pumpkin note-able one of the best smells of a pumpkin beer. the appearance is reminiscent of a pumpkin pie. the taste change fast but good. it was a little bitter, but yet again the flavor changes quick and for the good to a sweet and sour i makes this beer unique. the palate dissipates quick but doesn’t leave a bad taste overall i think the palate should of bin a bit longer and thinker for this type of beer never the less still great if you have a chance i rec picking up a bottle just to try even if you normally don’t enjoy this style beer. i think you will be surprised

750 ml btl Batch 598 bottled 8-11-10. Pours a hazy apricot hue with a foamy white head. Aroma is a refreshing tangy pumpkin spices and some grapefruit subtlties. Crisp tart lasting sour almost like a green apple cider. Not quites as much pumpkin as I’d prefer But a nice spicy autumn quality that sticks around.A great sour seasonal.

Pours a translucent copper with small head. Aroma of tartness and apricot (perhaps just the sour front giving off a fruity appeal). Some spice and little to no pumpkin. Flavor of a sour, with mostly wood and tartness coming out. Not sure how to rate a beer I like, altho it doesn’t give off much of anything that typically a pumpkin ale offers...including the pumpkin.

Bottle shared by robert at SL. Pours a hazy orange, decent head. Nose of some light spice, cinnamon and pumpkin with an overall tartness. Taste: The tartness/sourness and pumpking really off set each other and didnt blend well. Sour and pumpkin, thats all I tasted. Medium body with lots of carbonation. Overall: A good idea, but just not to my liking at all.

750ml bottle. batch 610. bottled 8-13-10. hazy orange with a small white head. nose has light touches of pumpkin and spice with some familiar JP funkiness. flavor has floral notes, da funk, very light pumpkin and spice mostly in the form of cinnamon. not much pumpkin here is that’s what your expecting, but it has a delicate subtleness. love the artwork.

Pours deep orange into a snifter. White head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Licorice, nutmeg and pumpkin aromas. Spritzy with upfront caramel, pumpkin, and funk. Lasting spice finish...

750ml bottle from K&L. Finally a pumpkin beer from Jolly Pumpkin. I just love the way this beer looks. The color is a clear bright pumpkin orange, and the head totally overwhelms the glass with thick white billowing foam. Thick lacing remains after the clouds recede. Nice subtle pumpkin aroma. Jolly Pumpkin usually goes big on the funk, but this time it is restrained. Spicy with a hint of chocolate. The flavor also has big pumpkin, a little sweet and only mildly funky, although the house yeast is evident. Slight cocoa and pie spices balance it out. Very smooth and silky on the mouthfeel with soft carbonation. For a pumpkin ale, I think this is great, and I’m a big fan of pumpkin beers. Guess these guys finally lived up to their name and I didn’t have to keep calling them Jolly Blump- ok, let’s not go there.
