Bottle via bobertkuekn, thanks Robert! Pours a much lighter orange, almost blond, than I was expecting from this style. Good carbonation. The taste is of pumpkin spice and TONS of cinnamon. The finish is almost cough syrup sweet/viscous. More of a typical pumpkin beer and while not bad, wasn’t anything that really stood out to me.

12oz from suzygreenberg. Copper clear amber with thin white ring of a head. Big cinnamon, nutmeg, grahm, pumpkin, banana, bubblegum...very much a thick pumpkin pie nose. All of the aromas from the nose are happening in the flavor. So balanced and such a wonderful beer. The little bit of banana jus works to tie everything together. Last year the best pumpkin beer I ever had was ST pumpking...this year, this is it.

Nocturne (1040) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2012
355ml bottle. I’m very excited to be trying my first pumpkin beer, a style that just doesn’t exist in Europe. Hopefully Williamsburg AleWerks’ offering will give me a good starting point. It pours out a mostly clear copper shade and instantly I start to get a sense of pumpkin and spice mix on the nose. I was apprehensive about the taste, knowing that raw pumpkin isn’t something I have fond memories of, but thankfully the wonderful spice notes of ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg are the dominant feature. Pumpkin instead lurks in the background. It’s quite sweet and the alcohol is never felt. Note to European brewers: start making these... please!

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2009 1st rating for this brew! 12oz bottle from grape & gourmet, batch 91009. pours a very nice clear, dark copper with a whispy, off white head and a solid ring of lace. aroma is great and very similar to pumpkin cheescake with big, sweet pumpkin notes, graham cracker crust, and pure spice notes of cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg, with a touch of caramel malts. flavor is excellent as well with natural pumpkin flavors blended with sweet vanilla, big spice notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, orange peel and clove, and a touch of nutty, carrot cake with a lingering, spiced finish. palate is medium bodied and very well carbonated with a great balance of sweetness and fall spice. overall, another great new brew from Geoff and AleWerks!

Aroma of pumpkin pie, all spice and cinnamon. Nice looking orange color with a short lasting white head. Great taste of pumpkin pie, with spice and a hint of sweetness. Creamy feel with a spicy finish.
