Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2012
Single bottle purchased from a Calgary Co-op Liqour Store on 09/18/2012. Colour: Beautiful clear dark orange with red hues. Low creamy light brown head. Nose: breaded pumpkin with healthy dose of all-spice. There is some espresso deeply hidden. Of all the pumpkin beers I have tasted in my time - this one has the most pumpkin-like aroma. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. Light caramel on-set and then the pumpkin takes over - and combined with the caramel, it truly gives the taste of pumpkin pie. Medium body and slightly sticky. Carbonation is fairly weak but this allows for more of a full pumpkin taste. Spice is curiously dull considering it was prominent in the aroma. Drinkable.

Pours a clear deep copper with nice big white head that after a few minutes amounts to a small white ring around the glass. Aroma is of nice pumpkin pie(cinnamon, nutmeg, and some other spices you may find in pumpkin pie). Flavours consist of pumpkin pie spices, mostly nutmeg, cinnamon, and slightly nutty. definitely one of the better pumpkin beers iíve had.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - JAN 30, 2010
Pours brown with a thin head. Pleasant aroma of cinimon and nut met. it really smells like pumpkin pie. Thick creamy brew with lots of spices and malty flavour. however I feel that this beer is way too heavy on the nut meg. Its almost like drinking cheap spiced rum. I can see why people like it but deffinatley not my thing.

maley1 (781) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 18, 2011
Golden clear amber pour with small off white head. Aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste of pumpkin pie and nutmeg with a bit of cinnamon. Nice taste until the aftertaste took over which was not all that pleasant. Could of easily scored much higher because of that.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 18, 2008
Pours a dak transparent red with a small beige head. Aroma has a whack of nutmeg... tons of nutmeg. Other scents on the nose are well pumpkin and I wanna say pie crust. Wow! it tastes like pumpkin pie in a bottle!. Enough said. Feels alright on te palate. Loses marks for not tasting like a beer... but for weirdness and taste, it gets a thumbs up!

Aptly named pumpkin PIE ale - this smells and tastes like pie - I think they even captured the flavour of the crust. Pours clear reddish bronze with little head. Cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, crust. Taste is similar. Sweet, but clean. Drinkable - spices arenít overpowering, itís still clearly a beer and not egg nog.

Masterkush7 (507) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
Pours medium amber, thin off-white head, passable lacing. Nose is very soft, with cinnamon, clove, pumpkin, some malt as well. A pretty good average brew from my favourite local brewer

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 7, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2010 Smells great, you really get the spices in the nose - cinnamon and it really does smell like pumpkin pie. Brownish red, it is quick thick and cloudy, a bit of head, ok lacing. Looks better in the glass than I expected for something that isnít bottle conditioned. Smooth uptake on the sweetness of the malts, a bit spicy from the herbs and the pumpkin (?) flavour. The problem here is, as I have a few more sips I only can smell diapers now when I get it close to my nose. NO, itís the poweder smell to cover up the diaper smell from the diaper genie! ok, so my smell memory is great but that smell really doesnít belong in my beer... good thing I smelled it before I got the taste mixed up in my nose. Fairly creamy on the tounge, a bit of spice flavour and then it fades. Pretty good, Iíve bought this a few times now for something different. Next edition 15th anniversary : pretty much the same, Iím not geting the diaper smell this time... but I CAN see where on the right night your nose would be in that place. The headílacing is even weaker, but the spice/flavour combination is even more spot on. I used to hate pumpkin pie as a kid and now I love it, I bought 2 at the store when they were festively on sale and this beer is jus like the pie spices, minus the crust flavour. I really prefer a thicker (bottle conditioned) beer, and this one is after a Rochefort 10 and 6, so Iím pretty judemental, but this one still tastes right.
