Tap - mellow mushroom - Charlottesville - end of the keg, pours a cloudy amber with 2 fingers of head. Aroma is faintly of dough, pumpkin pie, spices, clover and cinnamon. Taste is a touch sweet with the spices on the finish, finishes slightly dry. Surprisingly good!

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - OCT 27, 2009
12oz. bottle, with thanks to ksurkin for the nice bonus. Pours a clear dark orange with a moderate off-white head that settles to a thin ring. Aroma is a nice pumpkin pie spice, with nutmeg, cinnamon and brown sugar. Flavor is more pumpkin pie, nutmeg, spices and a little brown sugar sweetness. A little reminiscent of a nice apple butter in some ways. Iím not really a big fan of pumpkin beers but this is a good one, thanks again Ken!

Nocturne (746) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2012
355ml bottle. Iím very excited to be trying my first pumpkin beer, a style that just doesnít exist in Europe. Hopefully Williamsburg AleWerksí 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 isnít 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. Itís quite sweet and the alcohol is never felt. Note to European brewers: start making these... please!

Bottle - Gold pour with an orangish hue. Very little head and it is gone in a flash. Nose of all the normal spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, all spice, etc...) Taste follows the nose. Not cloying but just the right amount of sweetness. Probably number 2 or 3 for this style IMO. Great stuff.

Aroma: The pumpkin is overpowering, and itís pumpkin, too, not pumpkin pie or pumpkin pie spices, but there are hints of floral hops underneath. Apperance: Cloudy Orange with a white head that faded quickly. Taste: Sweet, sweet, sweet. Palate: Medium body with creamy texture, soft carbonation, almost flat, and a lasting finish. Overall: The label does not lie. This tastes like pumpkin pie--rich, spicy and creamy. Of all the pumpkin beers Iíve tried this Fall, this would certainly be one of my go tos.
