3.68/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Batch 876/877 bottled 9/14/2011

A - pours with a pillowy thick 2 finger lightly tan/off white head with excellent retention atop a hazy orangish-hued brew, on the orange side of unpasteurized apple juice

S - Tart, sourdough aroma overpowers the presence of any other ingredients, except some yeast esters: pineapple, granny smith apple; maybe a hint of pumpkin flesh, but my mind/nose could be playing tricks on me

T - the lactic acid is upfront - it takes some focus to tease out a malt breadiness and pumpkin accents, not to mention the touch of cacao under the tongue - and there's a lingering bitterness, especially as it warms - either the product of age/improper cellaring (probably, as this was purchased in Phoenix, AZ) or some recipe problems, an unwanted reaction between oak tannins and the cacao

M - the high carbonation level suits the tartness very well, and this combination does well in the face of such a dry and well-attenuated brew, a significant difference from many other pumpkin ales

D - not the home run I've come to expect from Jolly Pumpkin; I would have liked to have tasted this beer a little younger and closer to its source, and while it's a welcome departure from many other pumpkin ales, it seems a little more befitting of the spring - or best, an Indian summer - rather than the fall. Still, a quite good beer.
