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.

Pours a nice dark hazy orange color with a good amount of froathy white head. Aroma is a bit metallic, sweet, very slight pumpkin spices, and a bit of coriander. Flavor is light and watery with a bit of creamy pumpkin spice. Overall, my first pumpkin beer, not too shabby but i think there are better ones out there.

A good try at a specilaty beer but not quite the winner I thought it was going to be. A huge display at the beer store and wow I thought this was going to hit me good. Hazy, very weak head, slight pumpkin taste slight is the key word. A cood dark amber color with very little flavor. I think coors missed on this beer.

I had to pick this one up this year as I have missed it in years past. Poured a dark and slightly hazy orange. The aroma is caramel and canned pumpkin with a hint of nutmeg. The taste is light pumpkin and nutmeg. There is a weird dry finish of dirt. Artificial tasting campared to some other pumpkin beers I have had.

Much more mild in flavor than some of the pumpkin beers i’ve had, which is kinda nice not to be overpowered with spice, but this one has a bad beer flavor behind it. Honestly in this one more spice might have actually hid the bad base beer behind it. Pours medium amber with a white head. Medium body, with a medium spiced finish.

This has a strong aroma of pumpkin, but the flavor fails to deliver. This has a small creamy, white head that stays around the glass. It is more wheaty than pumpkin flavored. hops and carbonation are lively, and slightly bitter in the finish. I expected better, but this is expected from Blue Moon. It is not dissapointing, just not exceptional. Overall a decent seasonal.

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.
