This amber-colored flavored ale is brewed only in the autumn and combines the flavor of vine-ripened pumpkin pie flavor with traditional crystal malt.

Bottle: Clear amber with some rust hues shining through, medium beige head. The aroma is sweet caramel, light pumpkin, light pie spices. The taste is sweet caramel, pumpkin, butterscotch, with only a hint of spices. Light to medium bodied, moderate-medium carbonation, bitter and acidic at times.

I think a lot of pumpkin ales are over spiced. Blue Moon might actually be guilty of under spicing. Light spices like nutmeg and cinnamon, along with cara malts. Very nice copper orange with next to no head. It surely looks like a pumpkin ale. Enjoyable enough for once a year.

This is a fun brew from Blue Moon. It tastes like a hard pumpkin beverage, if you can imagine that. The beer-ness is nonexistent on this one. However, it would be great with a pumpkin pie. It smells of caramel and lightly of pumpkin. The appearance is orange-like with little head and it tastes like pumpkin. A very smooth, enjoyable brew, which I might buy again.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 Despite being a Coors product I rather like the Blue Moon Wit so I was rather hopeful going into this beer. Of course that was before I found out that there was no actual pumpkin used in this beer. Hopes faded quickly. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright orange color with a large orange-white head. The aroma is spicy with nutmeg and cinnamon elements and is not wholly unpleasant. The flavor is dry and spicy with nothing else of note. The spices on the flavor are rather unpleasant after the first sip or two.

Hazed orange amber pour, with a thin sparse head of off-white. Savory plant-like malty aroma. Bright, effervescent, bubbly malt flavor, with a slight pumpkiny plant flavor on the back end. More like chewing on a tomato stem over malt and a hint of hops. Fruity with good ester notes. Palate lemony and crisp.

Very light spice aroma. Wheat taste and a dry finish. This is very similar in taste to the Wit. A lightest flavor of pumpkin in the finish.

I had 4 pumpkin ales in the past 2 days, this was one of the 2 best. The best thing about the Blue moon ale was the pumpkin and spice flavors were subtle. Some malt in there ... not much hop but thats OK in this beer.

Bottle. Best before: 01/29/06, I think. Pours a deep orange with a medium-sized, fizzy, sandy-colored head. Sweet malts dominate the aroma with some pumpkin and cinnamon. Light body. Sweet malts and some pumpkin along with enough spiciness in the finish to taste close to how a pumpkin beer should. Nice balance. Decent. Just way too thin, watery and overly carbonated.

Found this to be very drinkable, nice amber look, decent light aroma and flavor of pumpkin and spice. I thought it was a bit too light though, just not enough of the good stuff for this type. I prefer Michigan Brew Company’s pumpkin.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2005 From bottle to glass: Poured medium amber, with little white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma of pumpkin and spice. Taste was very much pumpkin all the way through, finishing with spicies, nutmeg. This went down very smooth, and I enjoyed two! This is a very nice pumpkin ale and I will enjoy many more throughout the fall.
Re-Rated Due to tasting a better pumpkin beer.
