COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Seasonal Delicacy begins with Sweet Oklahoma Sugar Pumpkins. We have them grown especially for us, in a secret Pumpkin Patch just south of town. Native Pecans, Vanilla Beans, and our Special Spice Blend give this Beer a unique character all its own. We think this is what Pumpkin Pie wants to be when it grows up.

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 Iíve ever had. It would be hard to top this one! Deserving of a full five!!!

Very festive brew. I loved the aromas. I almost expected the pumpkin to be overwhelming, but it was just about right. The spices were also very well balanced. Nice lacing. Very nice.

Aroma has nice notes of spice (cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, vanilla) and pumpkin. Flavor is a nice balance between the pumpkin, and the spices (see aroma). Its nice to see a pumpkin ale actually use pumpkin (and not just the spices) and use it effectively. Great fall brew!

[Bottle] I was surprised to find a bottle at this time of the year, but they are still around. Pours a hazy orange color with a white head. Some sediment and yeast in there as well. Hearty aroma of pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon and sweet caramel. Solid, natural pumpkin taste is pretty dominant here. Not overwhelming, but less subtle than most pumpkin beers. Spices including nutmeg and ginger blend together with vanilla, clove and caramel. Average mouthfeel and appropriate carbonation levels. This is a solid Fall beer. And itís good to see it around at various places out of season too.

From the 12oz poured into a tulip glass: hazy dark amber brown with about and inch of constantly sustained tan head. Itís 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. Itís a great pumpkin brew and one of my faves from this producer. Well done.

Bottle. Hazy amber/ frothy beige head. Nice pumpkin flesh, pie spice, nutty roasty aromas. Light frothy mouthfeel. Good pumpkin pie spicy flavors with malty bready buttery pie crust.

(12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) opaque orange pour, creamy off-white bubbles. Nose of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Taste of alcohol, cinnamon, and apricot with some lightly tart fruit as well. Fruity finish with soft carbonation. Nice pumpkin beer!

This one was hard to rate due to every bottle erupting upon opening (the beer was ready to jump into the glass). Hazy orange-amber pour into thick foamy beige head that slowly fades into melting lacing, leaving behind a thin layer of foam. Aroma of roasted pecans, pumpkin, and allspice. Initial flavor of vanilla that slowly falls into a pumpkin patch with a bit of spicy kick in the finish. Like the bottle says: "This is what pumpkin pie wants to be when it grows up."

(12oz bottle) Pours a cloudy orange body with a tall fizzy off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin, ginger, allspice, and cinnamon. Flavor of pumpkin, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, caramel malt, light vanilla, and bread.
