In the "Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" the mystical G. P. never arrives much to Linus's chagrin. In the Jolly Pumpkin's world it's the pumpkin ale that never arrives. What? Contrary to popular belief and local legend these guys don't put out a brew befitting their moniker. Anywho...what they do deliver is a spice-rack bed of Procrustes. Of the few I've tried (at the brewery from the tap and in single bottles) the spices over-ride the smooth creaminess of otherwise excellent beer. This one is the exception so far. There's enough tang in it to let you know that you've been with a tart but not enough spice to make you fret that you have been infected with her malty infarction. Scared little man? Ish Kabibble...I should worry? No! Not me!

3.8

Hazed, light golden blonde, 3 fingers of white head, lots of lace. Smell is a mix of fruit and oak, citrusy orange and lemon, a bit funky with some spicy points as this warmed. Taste is acidic and tart, dry oak flavours, citrus, orange and lemon, more classic wit flavours of coriander, spice and orange peel is present. Highly carbonated, light to medium bodied, champagne like feel. Not bad, but the excess of carbonation makes this a bit tough to drink a lot of.
