UPDATED: OCT 17, 2004 While I do like this beer I was semi disapointed. I think Blue Moon white is one of the best brews out there so I hoped this would be in the same legue but its not. It has a somewhat week smell and a bit of an aftertaste but the flavor is spicy and pleasent if too mild. Very beautiful to look at, I do taste pumpkin and I will admit it grew on me after my inital disapointment. I also think Buffilo Bills is better but I do hope to try other Blue Moonís. How about making the rasberry available?

Pours a light orange color, thin white head on top. Flavor is hefe plus mild pumpkin and moderate clove, cinnamon, and sweetness. Not terrible, but there are far better pumpkin beers available. I would suggest Buffalo Bill or OíFallon for what itís worth.

Burnt orange hue and a medium head fail to make up for the lack of exotic spicy taste i was expecting from a pumpkin ale. fairly smooth on the palate and not to bad overall.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Clear, earthy dark orange color, nearly bronze, with a full, off-whitish head, riddled with myriad brownish dots. (Subsequent tastings did not show this peculiarity.) Nose is an immediate hit of sweet and warm spices, a bit vegetal, soft and mild, but pleasant. Nice flavor off the bat, full, rich, aflood with spices (cinnmon, ginger, ...cramom?) riding on top of the palate. Smooth, and malty, little hop, medium body,...and ulimately fading. Nice balance, decent taste, but Iíd prefer a little more...then again, this is Coors behind the helm, who arenít normally in the business of challnging tastebuds.

Reddish body, small tan head, mild pumpkin-pie nose. Pretty bland, with late spice and a hint of pumpkin.

This isnít the best beer that Iíve ever had, but I think itís definitely better than itís current rating of 2.79. Itís one of the better pumpkin ales that Iíve had - itís not overpowering in the pumpkin flavoring (as many of this style are).

Bottle. Amber colored. Meduim white head, disperses quickly. Aroma is spicy, like pumpkin pie, but lacks depth (no pumpkin noted). Flavor adds to opinion of aroma, lack of pumpkin evident, but the spice is certainly prevalent. Overall, okay, but there are better pumpkins out there.

Deep Amber Coloring. Small Marshmellow White Head. Pumpkin Aroma... hmm.. Taste is Better Then I Expected... Pretty Wet.. But Good Pumpkin/Spice Flavors... Not as Evident as I Would Like....Carbonated...., but Drinkable. Decent Fall Brew!

very clear amber color, THICK and creamy beige head. aroma is light on pumpkin...spice not that detectable, lots of butter in the aroma too. spices are more noticeable in the flavor, although still subdued, fair amount of pumpkin, and some scorched sugar and butterscotch notes...not bad

Kind of disappointing. Actually, it looked great - rich orange color with a small lacy head that coated the sides of the glass as I drank. Mild spicy aroma. Good biting taste, spices and malt. But the pumpkin only comes through in the finish and as an after-drink aroma. Iíd told my girlfriend about such brews and she (a wine drinker) wanted to try one. I thought Iíd grabbed the first of the season, but Iíll have to wait.
