Jolly Pumpkin Bamarillo
Bottle from Merchants. Aroma is funk, some tartness, barnyard, fruit skins, dank, good. Appearance is golden, light tan head, mostly clear. Taste is funk, bitter, dank hops, wheat, barnyard, pissy, woody, tart, kind of unbalanced. Mouthfeel is light body, light crisp carbonation, pissy funky aftertaste. Overall, I've definitely had better.

Jolly Pumpkin Noel de Calabaza
Stumbled across this beer that I didn't know I had a sticker on the back says bottled on Halloween 2012. Aroma is tart, dark ripe fruits a little malt. Average appearance.. flavor is a like aroma a little more interesting and complex hints of cocoa and Oak. Body is a touch thin. Very good finish and fairly easy drinking for a sour beer.

Jolly Pumpkin / Jester King Olas Espaciales
Cloudy, tan and with a thick head. Dusty, has a tart barrelly bretty character. On the palate, it's sweet, touch of berry, and actually comes across a little bit thin. Not as funky as I might have hoped.

Jolly Pumpkin La Parcela No. 1 Pumpkin Ale
A bit overrated! Boring gold pour w/ out much of a head or lacing. Aroma has some nice fall spices. Taste is an odd combo of spiciness, bitterness, & sourness. Points for uniqueness but it doesn't all come together for me. Just decent!

Jolly Pumpkin / Monkish Cucurbitophobia
Vom Fass im Muted Horn Berlin 2017-10 getrunken. Dies ist ein Sour Ale nicht mehr nicht weniger. Ob Blutorangen oder Gewürze nichts vom den macht hier ein besonderen Unterschied. Es bleibt trinkbar - mehr definitiv nicht.

Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza
Bomber from LCBO. A unfortunate start! 10% - 15% jumped out of the bottle as soon as the cap came off. Not impressed! A quiet pour with active carbonation and an aroma of citrus, spice, and hard fruit. The beer has a hazy gold colour with a rich white head and good lace.The start is malty smooth with brett, earthy tones, and fruit notes expanding into the middle. Long finish with yeast and peppery notes blending at the very end. Good but a messy cleanup.

Jolly Pumpkin / The Masonry Turbo Bam
Draft at Craft Brewed. Pours a clearish gold with a finger of foam that lingers. Tart lemon pith, fresh dill, & wheat nose. The dill really stands out as it warms. Grassy on the palate, with more dill & lemon notes. Bit of oak in there as well. Tannic almost with a dry, clean and crisp finish. Pretty cool.

Jolly Pumpkin Fuego del Otono (Autumn Fire)
25.4floz (750ml), no date, paid about $6 sale price. Poured into a large snifter, appearing amber in color with an off white head. Sour smell in turn is moderately sour palate of dried leaves (somewhat hairy if you will). In sum this is a fairly malty sour with a medium body that is two thumbs up from me.

Jolly Pumpkin / Gigantic Phuket; It's Not That Far From Laos
Draft to taster at HopCat in Kalamazoo. Looks good for the style; a mildly hazy lemony gold with foamy white head. Smells of lime, mild hops and yeast, and a touch of pineapple, pear, and funk. Mouthfeel is medium-light to medium-bodied, mildly but pleasantly citrusy, and finishes semi-dry. Tasty and sessionable.

Jolly Pumpkin Weizen Bam
Tasty wild hefe, easygoing yet identifiable as both a wheat beer and a sour. Starts with vanilla and clove hefe notes, but quickly gains a tart middle, citric sourness playing off the mellow hefeweizen grassy meadow soul. Turns yeasty on the finish, yet keeps its complexity in the fade, leaving traces of bread and funk and grass on the palate. Ugly pour offers the slightest bit of a head with no lace. The texture's just right for a sour, though, effervescent and perky but not overly so. Yeast, lemons, and hints of barnyard on the nose. Good, if a bit light.
