look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Found this on draft at Pizzeria Paradiso in DC.
Pours a hazy orange brown color with a thin white head and little retention
Smell is faint. Mainly Brett tartness with some floral spicy notes.
Taste Follows the nose with tart start, lots of funkyness and a spicy hint of cinammon and nutmeg towards the very end.
Body is moderate to light with moderate carbonation. This has an amazing aftertaste leaving your mouth salivating.
Different than your average pumpkin beer. I wonder if it is in the right category (maybe wild ale?). But you just gotta love Jolly Pumpkin!

Batch 579. Bottled on 8/10/10. ABV of 5.9%.

Appearance: Two fingers of off-white foam. Hazy amber body. Great lacing and head retention.

Smell: Certainly smells like a Jolly Pumpkin beer. Tartness. I can't really detect much of the spice.

Taste: The acidic tartness takes center stage like in other Jolly Pumpkin beers. The pumpkin flavor is noticeable fairly quickly but the spices don't emerge until after the tartness has subsided.

Batch 610. Bottled 8/13/10.

The beer pours a yellow-orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma begins as your basic pumpkin ale. I get some nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin. However, since it is a Jolly Pumpkin beer, you know there will be some tartness and it is present in the aroma.

The flavor is pumpkin, brett, nutmeg and cinnamon. There is also a low amount of tartness in the flavor, but the beer is more funky than sour.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

A very nice, interesting take on a pumpkin beer. Glad I got to try this one.

A huge thank you to erikkoppin for sending me out one of the few JP Beers I am yet to review. I have been holding off on reviewing this until today... which is a damn appropriate time seeing as it is Halloween. Cheers Erik!

Appearance - Pours a relatively clear dark amber color into my Jolly Pumpkin pint glass (I'll pour the rest into a tulip - just had to use the appropriate JP glass to start!). About a finger and a half of head are achieved with a careful pour, that dissipates rather slowly leaving what looks like a marshmallow consistency on the top of the beer, and leaves nice looking lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell - Honestly, relatively one dimensional which is a somewhat surprise for a JP beer. I get massive amounts of barnyard funk, slight vinegar, and just a hint of spices - I was hoping the spices would show through a bit more. Once this warms up a bit I may re-visit this section if the spices make themselves a bit more prevalent.

Taste - Woah. Wipe away the slight disappointment with the aroma. The taste smacks you in the face immediately. As I always state in my reviews, Jolly Pumpkin has its own "style" which everyone is aware of (and if they are not they rate accordingly, heh). Every beer has a funk twist to it. This is no different. However, just as I was pleasantly surprised when I tried Fuego Del Otono, Autumn Fire, this beer has a very different approach to the normal JP I am used to. The initial flavor is of sweet brown sugar/caramel, yet oddly this still makes me pucker. This sweetness is gone considerably fast which leads to a clean and crisp barnyard funk - it is more tart than funky/musty. While I really am searching for pumpkin flavor within this beer, the spices make themselves known at the tail end of the sip. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and cocoa. The sweet and sour flavors meld amazingly. Erik wasn't joking when he said this is one of his favorite offerings by JP.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied, a tad on the lighter side, moderate carbonation, finishes with a great crisp flavor, which leaves you begging for more.

Drinkability - So much so. I really wish I could find this on tap out here (non-existent in CA sadly) because if I did, I would drink about 10 pints of these. Not over the top like some of the other JP beers where a bomber is plenty...this one is insanely easy to quaff and as stated, the flavors really do meld into making this a nice sweet and sour beer. Damn good, damn enjoyable. Very glad I was able to try this.

750 mL bottle, at least a year old, poured into my Duvel tulip.

La Parcela pours somewhere between a crystal clear orange and deep goldenrod depending on the lighting. The slightly off white head is massive, filling half the glass. It sticks around for a while to boot, and leaves a decent amount of lacing down the sides of the glass. Just a bit more and La Parcela would have garnered a 5 for looks. The nose is completely dominated by whatever critters JP put into this beer, it's straight funk with just a touch of vinegar skulking around in the background. I expected La Parcela to be much more of a wild ale than a pumpkin one at this point , but I can still find evidence of it's pumkin-ness in the flavor. A brief swirl of brown sugar leads off before the wild influence barges in to take center stage. As with the nose, it's more funky than sour, but both are definitely still present. The beer closes with a flourish from some of the traditional pumpkin ale spices, predominantly cinnamon. Mouthfeel is superb, the beer is light and nimble without even suggesting a watery characteristic. In addition the carbonation, while high, is a bit more restrained than I find in some wild ales. It's still plenty expressive, but it's not bubbly to the point of distraction. La Parcela is a great beer after a year plus of aging, but I think I might have enjoyed it a bit more a little sooner, when the pumpkin ale aspects were shining through a bit more. Still, all in all a great way to kick off Halloween this year.

Large bottle, purchased at DeCicco's, Ardsley, NY.

"Batch 160, Bottled 8-13-10" on a sticker on back of the bottle.

Pours heavily hazed, lighter brown, typical smaller head, leaves respectable lighter lace.

Lighly bretted nose, light vinagar note also coming through. Musty, earthy, funkyness burbling along just benenth the surface.

Interesting and tasty brew. Moderate sour note, soft brown ale characteristics, more light vinagar.

Pleasant bite, cut through, the earthy and tomato notes of my spicy chile. Nice wintery brew. Well worth seeking out.

This is not your typical pumpkin beer. It is not very sweet and is more like a very un-sour sour ale. It pours a very pumpkin like color with a nice foamy head. Smells yeasty with maybe a spruce of pumpkin. Tastes like a pumpkin lambic with the most subtle of all flavors. Feels a little tart on the tongue. Quite drinkable but after a while the flavor gets a little old. Overpriced but pretty good.

Edit (10-21-2013)

Tried this on draft at a place that oddly enough was serving this by the pint...

Much nicer than its bottle counter part. Very effervescent and spicy. I still think the pumpkin flavor is minimal but it was a bit more sour yet still one of the least sour Jolly Pumpkin beers that I have had. Very murky but almost no head but rather that acidic sizzle. This however is the one pumpkin beer I think that should be released early, by the time this comes out every year it is a little cold for a refreshing sour.

A perfect beer for Hallow's Eve I would imagine. Batch 598, bottled 08-11-10.

A- Pours dark orange with a huge creamy, very fine bubbled head that has super retention. Infinite amounts of fine creamy lace, beauty.

S- Like a Jolly Pumpkin Ale. Sour bacterial produced notes up front with some funk in the background. Slight pumpkin and spice in the very background.

T- Very interesting, was expecting more sour than this. Actually a "light" feeling flavor. Starts with earthy, lactic and slight spice. Finishes with sour citrus that fades into bready yeast and very slight earthy-vegetable-pumpkin (it seems to be hit or miss, not in all sips) and Autumn spices. Slight cocoa. Some wine/vinous hints of grapes from sour.

MF- Very, very spectacular. The beer feels like a cloud on the tongue, extremely light but 100% cream. Some cheek puckering sourness and very slight bitterness. Probably the best non-stout, non-thick mouthfeel I have ever experienced.

DB- Actually pretty damn easy to throw back due to the body and lack of fatiguing sour. I actually enjoy the spice mixed with the slight lactic a lot (can't justify a high grade due to style and the obvious reason that they call this their pumpkin beer), a cool blend of interesting flavor... I obviously wish the pumpkin would be bumped up a bit for a fresh squash blast.

Batch 610
Bottled 8-20-10
5.9% ABV

A- A very hazy luminiscent, orange liquid with a monstrous bone white head that has astounding retention. The lacing is far above average too.

S- Funk, flowers, and some light spices. A little on the lighter side of some Jolly Pumpkin beers, but it is very nice.

T- Some oak, light spices, funk, flowers. Slightly sour. A little odd with the spices...

M- A perfectly creamy body with a dry, acidic finish. Perfect.

D- A very unique pumpkin ale. Drinks nice. I hate to say this, but it doesn't blow my doors off. If this was my first Jolly Pumpkin beer, I am sure I would feel differently.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Batch 598, Bottled August 2010, into a flute

Appearance- Pours a vibrant orange, slight haze, with a fluffy 3 finger head. Good retention and lace.

Smell- tart green apple and the signature JP semi funky aroma. There is pumpkin and pumpkin spice as well but they are taking the back seat (at least for now).

Taste- Sweet, tart, fruity is what instantly hits you. Green apple. Then you get some subtle pumpkin and spice notes on the finish. There is the slightest chalky dryness on the finish, due to the cacao.

Mouthfeel- Medium body and carbonation, very crisp.

Overall- The pumpkin is subtle in this one but it is a solid tart/slightly sour/funky ale. I like the taste of this, I just wish there was more pumpkin, reviewing this as a pumpkin ale, I can't give it too high of a score for taste. Has more saisons notes than anything else. Good, but JP has some much better offerings than this one!

A: An absolutely huge head even with a gentle pour...Very hazy orange body, tons of lacing.

S: I get the signiture JP sour/funk/cellar with a little of pumpkin style spice. Some vegetable smel in there too, a little faint for my liking.

T:Very short flavor on the palate with a very small aftertaste. Pleasant spice and pumpkin seed, Saison like wheat, a little funk but not much. Not very complex, but good overall.

M: Well Carbonated, thin feel in my opinion.

D: Not bad, but certainly not even close to the best JP beer out there, and there are much more interesting pumpkin beers too. Easy drinker overall, but nothing worth looking for.

A - An enormous head immediately explodes to fill the glass sits atop a cloudy orange brew. I am docking half a point here because the head was annoying.

S - Horse sweat foremost, hay, copper, squash, cinnamon and cloves.

T - The flavor is of horse sweat, pumpkin and white pepper. There is some faint chocolate, hay, coriander and allspice. Aftertaste is of cacao, white pepper and grassy hops. The flavor is really

M - A bit harsh from high carbonation, medium body, pretty refreshing.

D - Good. I had no trouble finishing the whole bottle. If it wasn't so pricey, I'd happily have it again. Jolly Pumpkin is a great brewery, but their prices are intense.

Pour a dark hazy amber with a light white head that quickly subsides to just lacing at the edges.

Smell of sour apple, pumpkin pie spices of cinnamon, cloves, and oak.

Taste of tart apples, oak, light pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves and a little funk. There is such a small amount of funk in this beer that I hardly thought it was even Jolly Pumpkin after opening it. There is however that familiar funky oak flavor that all Jolly Pumpkin beers have. While I have never especially thought that JP made any jaw dropping wild ales, I would say that this one is by far the most drinkable. There is a very light body and a hefty carbonation which although make it more palatable; I can hardly say make it a great beer.

More complex than some pumpkin brews? yes, and I have to give credit for not just making an imperial pumpkin ale with spices like many other breweries seem to be doing now. Good for breaking the pumpkin fall ale 'mold' (no pun intended) , however it just tastes too watered down and not sour enough for it to be worth the $16 tag.

Batch 579 bottled 08/10/10

Hazy pumpkin orange body, rather fitting for a pumpkin ale. Massive head develops from even a careful pour, I would expect nothing less from Jolly Pumpkin. Frothy head recedes leaving a moderate cap. Thick splotchy lacing left scattered around the perimeter of the glass.

The aroma is rather interesting. Pumpkin, spices and cacao aromas are more prevalent immediately after the pour when the carbonation is more lively. As the beer settles a tart apple aroma begins to overwhelm the aforementioned aromas. A touch of oak is nestled in beneath bring a bit of continuity to the nose.

The Pumpkin Ale category does not seem accurate to the tongue at first sip. With a strong tartness and sweet apple flavors La Parcela comes off more as a spiced cider. As the beer warms the pumpkin does emerge though the tart apple flavor never fully diminishes. Dried spices and cacao are left on the back of the palate, quite the pleasant flavor to be left lingering.

Medium bodied with lively carbonation. The finish is dry though a few subtle flavors are left lingering.

From a style in which the differences are usually minimal, Jolly Pumpkin manages to set itself apart. Pleasant complexity and flavor progression. Drinkability is rather high, sitting and having a couple is certainly no chore. One to check out if you can get your hands on.

Served from tap into a snifter. Poured deep orange with a one finger white head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of granny smith apple, sweet malt, and upon initial inspection I thought I smelled dirty diaper. The diaper aroma left upon sitting for a minute thank God... The flavor was of slightly sweet malt, saison spices, and a subtle sour note. It had a light feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. The flavor was very well balanced. Honestly, I'm not sure where the dirty diaper smell came from... I was the only person in the place besides the employee and he was in the back. I also checked myself, no findings. It left fortunately so it wasn't really a big deal afterall. This one is a must try though. Can you find the diaper?

Had on tap at Pinocchio's in Media.

Appearance- An light seemingly sligtly cloudy orange. Looks like the color of pale pumpkin rind with a small white head on it. The head disappeared pretty quickly and left a ring around my tulip glass.

Smell- It smells of sour pumpkin and the usual spices that accompany a pumpkin brew. Very tart, almost pungent (not in a bad way).

Taste- Tastes like a sour blended with a relatively mild pumpkin ale. I suppose that's what they're going for so... mission accomplished. It's tart and sour of course. Little acidic.

Mouthfeel-Nicely carbonated so it's a bit tingly, but the acidity makes it something you wouldn't want to swish in your mouth for too long. Also, it's a touch watery.

Drinkability- It's a decent beer but it's a bit too acidy and a little expensive for a pint so I wouldn't have more than a couple. Certainly worth trying.

A: Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a stein. Gold with about 2 fingers of fluffy head.

S: Tart citrus fruits and applies, with a little horse blanket and funk thrown in.

T: Strong funk flavor: hay and horse stall, with some apple and pear thrown in, off-putting sourness and a bit of pepper. Definitely more of a wild ale than pumpkin ale.. I can barely taste the pumpkin.

M: Medium body with decent carbonation and a dry finish.

D: If I didn't know better, I'd say this was completely an American Wild Ale. I don't taste the pumpkin or the accompanying spaces at all... I would've thought a brewery named "Jolly Pumpkin" would produce a more pumpkin-like brew. And at $14.99 a bottle, it was completely not worth it.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip.

a - Pours a golden color with one inch of fluffy white head and light carbonation evident.

s - Smells of tart apples, sour fruits, and maybe light pumpkin, but not much.

t - Tastes of spices, light fruit, and a hint of funk/sour fruit. Tastes kind of watered down, which is disappointing.

m - Light to medium body and moderate carbonation.

d - A good beer, but didn't seem to have a lot of pumpkin to it and the taste was pretty watered down. Would try again but wouldn't seek out.

On tap at the Birch and Barley/Churchkey
A:Nice cloudy brownish orange color with a nice off white colored head.
S: Nice tangy alcohol woody notes to compliment some notes of pumpkin rind and spices.
T: It has an interesting tangy flavor that is a little strange and adds an acidic quality to a very deep basic flavor that I expect from most pumpkin ales. I definitely has all of the flavor components that i receive from pumpkin to nutmeg and cinnamon. It just adds that extra little dimension that changes it.
D/M: Very good but tough to drink if you dont have a palate for tart beers. Well carbonated and worth a try.

Glows orangish like a jack-o-lantern, Small white head fades fast, the beer is slightly opaque. Smells like basement must, lots of fresh pumpkin and oak. The taste is complex. Kinda sour up front with big raw pumpkin flavor, oak, and cacao is real present. Some other spices make an apperance. Finish is lingering pumpkin and funk. Great mouthfeel, real thick. Tasty tasty, hard to review though because its not a traditional pumpkin ale as it is barrel aged.

On tap at Max's. $6/32oz pour, it's a much better deal than the $19 bottle I passed on yesterday.

Hazy pumpkin orange with a dense off-white head with great retention and lace, this is one of the better looking pumpkin ales I've had. The nose is surprisingly muted. Pumpkin spice, pumpkin flesh, low funk with some vanilla, I get some nutmeg and mace. While it smells pleasant, this isn't as flavorful as I was expecting. Palate opens mildly tart with the spices coming through. The pumpkin flavor is moderate, with the spices being relatively mild. For a change, it seems like this doesn't have the entire gamut of pumpkin pie spices, it seems like cinnamon and nutmeg are missing. Mild sweetness is present, this is not very funky, arguably a little blah. Light in body with mild lemon character, this is medium-light in body with moderate carbonation and a decent finish. Decent, not worth the high price tag, for bottles at least.

750ml bottle from K&L. Finally a pumpkin beer from Jolly Pumpkin. ABOUT F-ING TIME, GUYS! The nerve of some people.

I just love the way this beer looks. The color is a clear bright pumpkin orange, and the head totally overwhelms the glass with thick white billowing foam. Thick lacing remains after the clouds recede.

Nice subtle pumpkin aroma. Jolly Pumpkin usually goes big on the funk, but this time it is restrained.

Spicy with a hint of chocolate. The flavor also has big pumpkin, a little sweet and only mildly funky, although the house yeast is evident. Slight cocoa and pie spices balance it out.

Very smooth and silky on the mouthfeel with soft carbonation.

For a pumpkin ale, I think this is great, and I'm a big fan of pumpkin beers. Guess these guys finally lived up to their name and are no longer hypocrites. I guess now I don't have to keep calling them Jolly Blump- ok, let's not go there.

A - A coppery yellow color with a one and a half finger white head that left some fairly decent lacing on the sides.

S - Holy spice, Batman! Smelled a lot like a sour with an inordinate amount of peppery spice going on. You really have to strain to smell the pumpkin on this one, and I'm not entirely sure I wasn't imagining it.

T - I think this is almost misclassified as a pumpkin ale. To me it tastes a lot like a robust American wild with an interesting amount of spice and some yeast added to it. Sweet and tart, with a nice malt bankbone that is a little bit unusual (maybe that's the pumpkin coming through). A little bit of oak and a slightly peppery funk on it. I rate this as high on taste as I do because it's different and pretty good. Not going to say fantastic, but the uniquness made me want to drink a lot more of it.

M - A nice dose of carbonation helps to bring out the flavor on this one a little bit. Medium bodied.

D - A little bit heavy for a wild ale, which is what I'm thinking of it as at this point, but pretty drinkable. I think the spice and weight of it might make it hard to drink for some, but I found it to be pretty enjoyable and think I would get the full effect of what this beer is really about after three or so glasses.

A - pours a honey yellow color that is pretty hazy and not much head

S - spicy pumpkin funk on the nose, interesting for sure

T - the overall theme of this beer is a sour pumpkin with nice spiciness. This has a lighter pumpkin flavor that plays off the rest of the spicy earthiness and funk. A welcomed change in flavor for this style.

M- very dry finish that is preceded by a medium body

D - this is a pretty solid pumpkin beer. The earthy funkiness was a great complement to the pumpkin flavor, which I wasn't sure how it would work. Solid pumpkin beer, but $15 a 750ml will probably keep me from exoring again.

On tap at Churchky.

Pours a really nice hazy copper-orange with an off white head. Decent amount of lace on the way down. Nose brings definite notes of pumpkin along with some oak and a bit of earth. Some funk but not too much. Taste brings some light pumpkin flavor and slight sourness. Mostly earth and oak along with accompanying funk. Feel is light and dry. Drinks quite well and one of the better and most unique pumpkin beers out there.
