>> Thank you Victor- pours low haze red amber with dwindling beige foam, no retention. Nose is fall leaves, perfume, potpourri, gummy candy. Taste is a bit watery/thin, powdery, dusty, with more fall leaves and earthy flavor than anything pumpkin. Definitely a fall beer, probably not super fresh, but fun to try.
