12oz bottle courtesy of dkachur. Pours clear dark amber with a 2 finger thick beige head. The nose is pumpkin, spice and malt. The taste is nutmeg, cinnamon, candied fruit and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is great Ė thick and creamy. Nice Pumpkin Beer. Not as good as Southern Tier Pumking, but itís up there and the mouthfeel is better. Thanks for sending this my way Dan!

12 oz bottle courtesy of Dan. Thanks. Pours a translucent copper color with a very small white head that immediately dissipates. The aroma is big and bold with pumpkin, cloves, and allspice. The flavor is similar to the nose, lots of spicy pumpkin set in a biscuit malt base. The palate was just a bit thinner than I would prefer and the carbonation was soft. Finished long with lingering cloves. Overall: One of the best pumpkin ales, this is a real treat. Thanks again.

One of the best pumpkin ales Iíve tasted so far! This offering pours a light amber color with a small off-white head. The head doesnít leave much lacing around the glass, though. I got a ton of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg in the nose. The body was extremely smooth and drinkable. The flavors were really delicious, with notes of pumpkin pie, pie crust, toasted bread, nutmug, cinnamon and a good amount of sweet maltiness. This really was like eating a slice of pumpkin pie. Iíve tasted a lot of other pumpkin ales, but this one wasnít so heavy on the pumpkin or the spices. The balance of the flavors was just right. Williamsburgís was more balanced and more well-rounded than a lot of others Iíve sampled. If you get the chance, try this pumpkin beer this fall. You wonít be disappointed.

Courtesy of rayl101. Hazy amber, mahogany, no head. Aroma has nice combo of pumpkin, spice, back-end sweetness. Flavor much the same, spice tends to take over, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice. Mouthfeel is a little slick, could use more carbonation.

Bottle, thanks to ksurkin. Pours copper, with an off white head. Aroma is like pumpkin pie...pumpkin and spices. Also has some caramel. Flavor is like a liquid pumpkin pie. Rich and tasty, but not too heavy as to be overwhelming. The best pumpkin brew Iíve tasted. Beautiful stuff. Need more....

12 oz bottle acquired in trade with RABinVA. Pours a dark clear orange with the tiniest of off white heads. No head at all really. Nice pumpkin scent with cinnamon and brown sugar. Taste is sweet with with a light spice. Contrary to their commercial description, this is not "pumpkin pie in a bottle" which is a good thing because it isnít full of artificial pumpkin flavor and loaded with spice. Just a more natural pumpkin flavor with a nice sweetness. Full bodied and smooth. Very good. Wish this were available around here.
