CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2007
(660ml bottle) Purchased at 6 Mile Offsale. Pours near headless with a deep, clear orange-bronze body. Strong aroma of pumpkin pie... mainly clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. Very flavourful. Almost the taste of eggnog mixed with squash. Tasty.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2008
Bomber from Brewery Creek: Poured a dark amber with a small head. Strong pumpkin pie, cinnamon, allspice aroma. This carried through to the flavour, fairly light in body with a malty finish. Meh...a fine pumpkin ale but nothing ground breaking.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2007
On tap at brewpub Dec 2007. Nose of pie spices and the pumpkin vegetable: quite a pure nose. Some annoying sour notes in the flavors but yields nicely to pumpkin cheesecake flavors that redeem that. A little too thin in palate but still soft. Orange color but not much head.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - JAN 20, 2013
Bomber. Golden orange with a little head. Lots of spice (nutmeg mainly), a bit of vanilla on the nose. Taste isn’t too sweet, crystal and pumpkin. Um, yeah, a typical pumpkin ale, better than the cloying ones, worse than the thicker ones.

mcberko (14682) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2010
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a dark orange with a white head. Strong aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg and coriander. Flavour follows accordingly. Nice spiced ale.

@Swans. Coriander aroma. Amber, low creamy head. Fairly spicy. Lightbodied
