Clear, copper colored beer with a lasting white head that leaves spots of lacing. The aroma is tart acidic vinegar, with faint pumpkin spices and a lot of chocolate. The taste is pleasantly sour with a ton of cocoa flavors. At the end a bit of pumpkin spices come in with a little malt sweetness. Very nice beer.

A: Orange cloudy, with fine bubbled carbonation, 5 fingers of yellowish head. It was a huge gusher from the beginning.


S: Lemon, orange, malt, pumpkin, an acidic vinegar quality, cinnamon, spices.


T: An acidic lemon quality, followed by pumpkin flavors, a sort of plastic quality, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice.


M: Medium acidic quality, medium low fine bubbled carbonation.


O: On the bottle they joke about how ‘Jolly Pumpkin’ never had a pumpkin beer, until this one. Its great. How can you make a pumpkin beer even better, make it a sour pumpkin beer and you won me. Got this in Grand Rapids, MI, drank in Muskegon, MI, Aug 16th, 2014.

Poured into a pint glass at 45 degrees. Appearance a deep amber color with orange and reddish tints. The ber is slightly cloudy. with carbonation bubble erupting from the bottom. A hard pour gave a thin light tan head with no retention.

A sweet pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, chocolate, caramel, toasted malt and yeast. It really smell like a sweet potato pie.

A sour farmhouse note comes of the beer first, with pumpkin cinnamon, brown sugar, chocolate, caramel, toast, yeast, sour cherries, and a floral note.

The mouthfeel is slightly creamy, medium body and lightly carbonated.

My first reaction to drinking this beer was unexpected. I was not expecting a sour note, but I gotta say I really dig this beer is wonderful tasting, beer lots of flavor and balance. I will finish enjoying this beer.

-750 ml bottle from ~2012 This poured a clear, deep orange (but a bit cloudy at the bottom of course). Aroma is a bit acidic, and a bit flowery with spice, especially at the bottom of the pour. The flavors were slightly acidic, vegetable, malt...okay, not helpful, but I would like to have this every week. My wife (who will taste any brew to be accommodating) exclaimed this as her favorite wild ale despite her other preferences.
