Brown with a hint of orange in color, clear with a thin head. Lots of pumpkin, spices (Cinnamon and nutmeg) in the nose. Great dark malt and pumpkin flavor tons of spice. This beer ranks as a high end Pumpkin beer.

(12oz bottle via trade with TURDFERGUSON, thanks Sam!) clearish orange-brown with soapy bubbles. Nose of brown sugar, real pumpkin. Taste of wheat bread, honey, pumpkin, with a smooth and creamy body that was also oily slick on the palate. Medium thickness. Sampled alongside 14 other pumpkin beers, this was the general consensus as the best of the evening that also had some pumpkin flavor so thanks for sending this Sam!

On tap at the Raleigh Times. Ashy amber pour with a decent head, moderate carbonation. Strong nose of more or less generic spice, with some faint pumpkin powder in there along with what seem like nutmeg and clove. The flavor was very mild, almost like an APA with modest scent. Okay.

12 oz bottle. Foggy brown with a brief spongy white head. Nose is nutmeg, toffee, cinnamon and clove. Medium body with a spicy tang. Taste is clove and nutmeg with hints of caramel. Pumpkin?

Draught @ brewery: This one poured a cloudy, slightly orangish color. There was a small off white head that left just a bit of lacing. Nice nose of pumpkin spice without being overpowering. The taste is good also. Pumpkin spice is dominant, with a nice malty beer behind it. The spice is not overpowering. This is a well done pumpkin beer.

Pour is a copper with an average white head. Aroma in lots of pumpkin pie spice. Flavor is a little more muted. Some pumpkin and some spice but nothing like the aroma promised. Worth a try though.

12oz bottle. Copper color. Aroma of nutmeg, lavender, and lemon zest. Tastes of squash, cinnamon, clove, coriander, lavender, and honey. Medium bitterness. Medium bodied. Unique flavor complexity, all finishes with a dry honey note.

One of my favorite pumpkin beers, Harvest Time shows a strong malt backbone buoyed by delectable earthy fall spices. Full bodied, but easily drinkable, everything is well in balance here.

Bottle:   Dark amber, fairly hazy, thin sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Spicy nose, cinnamon and nutmeg.   WHOA, very spicy up front, all-spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup and a whole bunch of honeycomb like cereal.   Has a little dryness and powdery aspect.   Honeycomb cereal comes out more as it warms.   Flavors fall of somewhat quickly.   However, more spiced than most.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Fairly decent, but not a big fan of that honeycomb like cereal flavor.   Overall its a bit more flavorful and heavier than most.
