3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 fl oz bottle from De Bierkoning, bottled in July 2015. Clear, deep red with a medium large, creamy, almost stable, tan head. Fruity-spicy aroma of cinnamon, redcurrant, elderberries and plums. Sweetish, fruity-spicy taste of cinnamon, toffee, elderberries, plums and raisins, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter finish with lots of cinnamon. Medium body, creamy and slightly oily mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Well-balanced, malt-accented ale with a huge load of cinnamon. Didn’t really get the pumpkin which is supposed to be good I think. Since I like cinnamon, I enjoyed this beer a lot!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear mahogany with a thick off white head from the bottle. Aroma is totally pumpkin spice. Taste is very pumpkiny with a bit of malt and a smidgen of hoppiness. Good earthy beer.

Uit de fles tijdens Bockentocht Houten. Een mooibruin oranje bier. Aroma en smaak zijn moutig, kruidig (kruidnagel), geconfijte sinaasappel, pompoen. Een lekker kruidig biertje

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Spicy aroma with cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg with pumpkin and some caramel malt notes. Pours orangish-brown with a decent tan head with ok retention and some lacing. Starts with caramel malt flavors with just a bit of pumpkin. Finishes smooth with some pumpkin permeating through before the spice takes over and coats the palate. Pretty good pumpkin but not the best.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can. Appearance: Deep reddish brown and somewhat clear, with an off white foam head with nice lacing.
Aroma: Like pumpkin pie with whipped cream topping. Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice all present.
Taste: Toasted, bready malt base with strong spicing that heavily favors the cinnamon. Almost like an over-toasted Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Nutmeg also strong. Moderate bitterness
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with a light to moderate carbonation.
Finish: Bready malt lingers with the cinnamon and nutmeg long after the swallow.
Overall: A darker, toastier, more cinnamon forward pumpkin ale than the typical beer for the style
