One can almost get a bit of a pumpkin-esque flavor once the liquid hits the tip of your tongue, but it very very quickly fades to some bland vegetable taste with not much else to back it up. If the brew were smoother, silkier, heavier, and made with 10x more flavor it would be an acceptable drink. But it’s not.

It reminds me of a free Thanksgiving gift basket.
The nose is spicy and if you'd like to call pumpkin a fruit, fruity.
Nice off white head that disappeared fairly quick. Lacing is sparse but present.
Taste is Fall seasonal spices, nutmeg, allspice, coriander? Pumpkin and maybe vanilla.
Mouth feel is a bit dry.
Overall after being scared away from pumpkin ale after the Shocktop incident I believe Blue moon has rebuilt my confidence.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Smells good. Spice and roastiness. Looks beautiful. Crystal clear Auburn orange with a foamy off white head that fades pretty quickly. Thin mouthfeel with an edge on the finish. Some spice and veggie earthiness. Mostly pretty flat. It comes close to almost having some character but just falls short.

From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a thick, creamy off white head. Tastes like pumpkin, creamy, foamy, wheat, orange citrus, and light spice. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like pumpkin, wheat, musky straw and orange.

Unclear light orange amber with slight white head. Aroma is pumpkin and spices. Light watery body. Not a lot of flavor. Not much happening on the palate. Much better options out there.

Deep amber hue. Thin head. Like any Blue Moon offering (an I’m not a fan) it is unimpressive. It has the adjunct macro taste of a MillerCoors beer with the label and price of a pseudo-craft. Very minimal hint of caramel malts with the expected pumpkin spice added in...presumably as a syrup latein the brewing process.

I didn’t get much off the aroma. The flavor was just eh. There was a touch of pumpkin yes. That Blue Moon finish really didn’t leave me happy.

Aroma nicely balanced blend btw. pumpkin spices and easy going amber.

Palate : lighter body, almost watery, lighter carbonation.
Taste: very light watery base with pumpkin spices.
Other notes nice profile but body underdeveloped.
