3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours a clear, burnt orange with some thin, off white head. Smells like carrot cake, cream cheese icing, parsnips, cloves, candied ginger, pumpkin pie candle. Flavor is very sweet, like cake icing, carrots, cloves, candied ginger, parsnip, candied yams, marshmellow. Slightly sticky, sweet, spicy finish. Pumpkin pie in a glass. One of the better pumpkin ales Iíve had.

12 oz bottle. Poured a clear brown with a touch of orange with a small white head. Aroma was cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin. Flavor was a nice, sweet pumpkin pie beer with graham crackers and a hint of clove. Alcohol is higher than I expected.

Bottle from Wine Warehouse, Cíville. The pourís deep orange amber with a small off-white head. The nose is quite spicy. Loads of ginger, cinnamon. Cocoa powder. Sweet toffee and vanilla. The taste is rich caramel. Quite flavorful malty flavors that donít come across as too flabby. More spices. Cinnamon, brown sugar. Pepper. Some toasted nut. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, a really nice pumpkin beer. Nice.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours an orangish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is a nice mix of pumpkin, along with all of the spices you expect in a pumpkin pie. The flavor is more of the same. While all of the spices are present, the ones that seem to stand out the most are cinnamon and cloves. All of the spices meld nicely and create a wonderful pumpkin ale. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Green Leafe. Dark, rusty orange with just a whisper of a whipped cream head. This drinks with a mellow pumpkin tinge, appearing mostly in the finish. Quite drinkable, and a nice easy-going introduction to the concept of gourds in beer to someone who hasnít tried it before. (#4366, 11/27/2011)

Sampled at gabf. Looks like most pumpkin beers. I smell spices but also a hint if hops. Pumpkin flavor leads with those fall spices. Interestng euro hop bitterness that few have. Dryness. The hops maje a difference.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(12oz bottle thanks to Exiled) clearish orange with sparse tan bubbles. Nose of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and lightly candied fruit. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves/allspice, and candied squash. The linger is downright delicious, and soft/appropriate use of spices in this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pumpkin pie spicy nose - cinnamon, all spice, black pepper? Big nose smells from a distance - sample smells nice looks nice. Rating done like a retard, was with cool dudes. Bright orange amber, thin head/beige ring. Pumpkin pie sweetness, light esters, graham crackers. Banana sweetness brings this together, makes it taste really nice. Great pumpkin beer. Drinks easily.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark orange-caramel color with a small foamy off white head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was sweet nutmeg, cinnamon and faint tangy bread and caramel. The flavor was strong pumpkin pie spices - mostly nutmeg and cinnamon and had undertones of bread and caramel. Spices overwhelm. Long sweet and tangy finish with lingering spices. Medium body. Decent.
