A decent Autumnal brew, though not as strong as I’d like. The nose is redolent of "punkin pie", and the flavor profile is likewise dominated by this pleasant blend of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg. Worth trying, and I have never had a problem putting down 3 or 4 on a cold night.

This is a very deceiving holiday ale for fall. The aroma is decent with a nice full orange body. The balance of spice is poorly done overpowering the flavor of the ale and I get sick every time from it.

Sampled on draught at a bar in Las Vegas. Amber colour, with mildly spicy aromas. The taste has hints of cloves and cinnamon and a rich pumpkin flavour that works really well with the lemon-dominated flavours of the wheat beer. Very pleasant, especially when drunk cold. Not one of the great wheat beers, but not at all bad when the pumpkin flavours are blended in.

Decent pumpkin spice flavor. Wheat character comes through too strongly in my opinion. Acceptable beer when there are no other options.

Had this in a bottle, so the appearance is in question. This is a smooth drink and on the first sip, it is heavy with flavors of the fall. Cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon lend themselves to a nice pumpkin flavor. However, that quickly vanishes the more you drink it. That’s a shame, as it would be a better drink otherwise.

Bottle - pumkin definitely coming through. Maybe just not my taste but too sweet and lots of carbonation.

Not a fan of the pumpkin flavor. It might be good if you like that sort of thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pumpkin spices. Heavy on the nutmeg. Not a huge pumpkin fan, but this is on par with some of the actual craft pumpkins. So I guess that’s a win for blue moon.

Bottle pour. Clear amber with a tan head. Malty, pumpkin, nutmeg, and cinnamon aroma. Light body. Pumpkin, spice, and cinnamon taste. Not the greatest.

Bottle. Amber. Pumpkin and cinnamon with high carb and a prickly mouthfeel. Not great, but not bad. Seasonal option at a kid’s 4th bday party.
