A Jolly Pumpkin pumpkin beer, how appropriate. Pours a vibrant orangey gold amber with a nice fluffy white head, nice retention as with most JP beers. The aroma has that trademark subtle oaky brett funk, rounded out by a nice mellow sweet squash notes and a mild spice. Man, this is how pumpkin beers should be. I must say I am not a fan of the glut of pumpkin beers that are around in the fall, but this is excellent. It's got just the right amount of spice, hints and wisps of clove, allspice, nutmeg, and actual pumpkin. These are accents to a nice base of a slightly sour, very refreshing, pale malt style ale. Rounded out by oak and a funky bite. Excellently dry on the palate. Definitely the new benchmark for the style in my opinion - never would've thought that funk and pumpkin would go so well together.
