3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 12oz poured into a tulip glass: hazy dark amber brown with about and inch of constantly sustained tan head. It’s got a very nice pumpkin pie aroma; not overly spiced, but definitely vanilla, pumpkin, nutmeg and a little alcohol. The flavor is sweet, pumpkin and spice, a little vegetal, with a mild roast bitter finish. Full bodied with plenty of suspension. It’s a great pumpkin brew and one of my faves from this producer. Well done.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2012 Bottle. Pours a foamy hazy red-brown with a high, ecru head. Amazing nose -- cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg -- so often pumpkin beers don’t take advantage of the nose. Very rich on the mouthfeel, and not at all sweet; definite clove and nutmeg notes, and a pleasing pumpkin vegetal element. Finishes long and almost, but not quite, acrid - and as it warmed, the nutmeg note became almost unpleasant. Still, quite nice. (And the fact that the dude on the label looks like Frylock should get some bonus points.)

Strong spicey aroma eminating from the lacey head. Smells of ginger, clove, and alcohol. Pumpkin can also be detected, which makes sense. Has a cloudy, murky, hazy liquid appearance with a VERY frothy head that mimicks many pilsners and lagers. Heavy, superbly sweet taste!! Full bodied as I have ever seen a pumpkin ale. Texture is slick/thick with average to lively carbonation. Finish is long and pleasant, with a strong presence of alcohol in the nose. Overall, this is the best pumpkin ale I’ve ever had. It would be hard to top this one! Deserving of a full five!!!

Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of lemons, wood, and brettanomyces. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, lemons, brettanomyces, and alcohol.

Sampled at GABF 2010. I’m telling you, these guys that run this brewery are convincing. They told me to try their pumpkin beer. I was all, " but i don’t really like pumpkin beers." But, the told me their pumpkin beer was awesome. Pours a hazy, dirty orange with off white head. Aroma of pumpkin spice, mild tartness. Flavor is strong pumpkin sweetness with mild spice. A touch of sourness in the finish. Overall, pretty solid pumpkin beer.
