A: Light orange with yellow on the edges of the glass. Thin with moderate white head.

S: Moderate sour with a hint of spice.

T: Sour taste remains moderate while a medium melange of spices comes forward, disguising the flavor of alcohol well except on the aftertaste.

M: Thin with seltzer-like carbonation.

O: Spicy beer with a nice bit of sour.

On tap at Beer Kitchen No. 1 in Kansas City, served in a snifter.

A: Arrived as a hazy orange brew, with a thick white head of tiny, tight bubbles that left not only good lacing, but distinct level markers for each sip.

S: Alas, I was at a restaurant with a kitchen, so my olfactory was running with a skeleton crew at best. What I was able to pick up were heavy citrus notes, sour and tart, and some hints of a wheaten grain bill.

T: Yes, definitely tart. This opens with a mixture of citrus fruit notes with the full sourness one would expect from such a medley, and that sourness does not relent. Orange, lemon, grapefruit, and tangerine roll through, with some subtler hints of apple and green grapes, before a swell of farmland-esque funk comes in the middle. Beneath the tartness, there are notes of spices, the usual suspects for a mulled cider, though faint and muted. The finish is Mojave desert-level dry.

M: To be honest, I couldn't really tell around the sour and tart, so I'll just say there's no issues there.

O: Intense without sacrificing complexity to do so, this is an interestingly sour biere de garde. Would repeat.

Appearance - 4.7/5
Pours a perfect pumpkin orange, very hazy. One finger of head. A large amount of carbonation rising upwards at a quick rate. Overall, the color of this beer is near perfect, and the head is just what I want in a beer.

Smell - 4/5
Classic JP sour flavor. Tart apples, lemons, cherries. Some spiciness is detectable as well.

Taste - 3/5
The first part of the sip feels kind of like water, but then the delicious JP tartness hits, although it seems more subtle and watery than in other JP brews. There is a little bit of spiciness in the brew, although not as much as I wanted. I was hoping for the classic JP taste, but with some nice fall spices thrown in, but instead this just feels like a watered-down and less flavorful version of one of their other beers.

Mouthfeel - 2.75/5
Medium-light in body, in between creamy and crisp. Carbonation is fairly light. Beer is kind of watery. Not what I want in a beer.

Overall - 3/5
I was excited for this beer, and waited until it was Fall to try it. Unfortunately, it just didn't deliver. Of all the different JP beers I have reviewed (about 12 of them), this to my memory seems the most watery and the least flavorful. The flavor itself is not bad, but the beer and the flavor just seem so watered down. What happened here Jolly Pumpkin?
