At the brewery, orange pour, off white head. Lots of pumpkin aroma. Nutmeg and pumpkin dominate the taste, sweeter than anticipated, but good.

Draft at the brewpub, Grand Rapids. Slightly hazy medium red-brown body, medium cream head. Sourish pumpkin spice nose. Body like a cross between a pumpkin ale and a tart apple pie, with nutmeg, cinnamon, and Granny Smith apple peel. Grassy with tart and sweet elements, nicely balanced. Reminds me of New Glarus fruit beers, but with pumpkin. Yum.
