COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There are pumpkin based flavors that are not pumpkin pie. With this in mind we set out to make an autumnal beer in the pumpkin tradition that wasn’t simply a typical pie-spiced beer. Looking to enhance the pumpkin’s naturally dry starchy flavors, we roasted its meat touched with orange oil, pink peppercorns and candied ginger. This was added to the mash of our high gravity cream ale recipe. We then took our soup inspired ale and aged it in our Scobeyville, NJ neighbors’, Laird’s, AppleJack barrels from last Halloween to this. Time in the Scobeyville wood has mellowed the peppercorns’ heat, orange zest, and sweet ginger bite and added the autumnal note of bushels of red apples. Drink Pumpkin Cream Scobeyville Wood because there are spices on the shelf behind the nutmeg and barrels beyond bourbon.

I didn’t get much of anything interesting from this, it kinda had a light creamy pumpkin ale quality but I certainly didn’t get much barrel quality and it wasnt as dramatically spicy as most pumpkin beers. Good, not great, draft at EBF 2014.

Tap at RnH, Nyc. Clear yellow color, small white head, lace. Aroma has pumpkin and berries. Light-bodied. Herbal, some sweetish berries, spices, pumpkin. Alcohol in the finish. Does not work for me.

Pouring at EBF 2014. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Pumpkin on the nose, cream, soft spices, vanilla and wood. Hints of apples, wood. Medium bodied, warm and full of barrel notes, wood and spice. Lively and spicy. Spices turn bitter and pick up some whipped cream notes. Very nice stuff.

Mini-Growler at New Years party. Pours out a hazy orangy color with a small white head. Aroma is of some spice, alcohol, barrels, sweet booze, some creamy notes and light spice (not too much pumpkin on the aroma. Taste has a lot going on, sweet creaminess, apple brandy, spices, alcohol, wood, light sweetness. Very intriguing.

Draft. Hazy gold/orange with a medium off white head. Aroma is pumpkin and popcorn. Taste adds a bit of booze, wood and apple. Medium mouthfeel and moderate carb. Not my favorite.

Growler. Hazy orange with a soapy head. Wood and apple aroma, maybe a hint of pumpkin. The taste adds sweet pumpkin notes with a creamy feel. Interesting but, not very good. Very underwhelming. --- Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from the 1st day of the release drank the very next day. There is NO WAY that this is the right beer despite what the label says. There is NO BARREL flavor or aroma anywhere. Even a plain wooden barrel would have imparted some sort of woodienss on the aroma and flavor. This has to be RAV. Golden pour with a large foamy bright white head. Aroma/flavor of dry grains, starchy veggies like squash or pumpkin with perhaps a slight touch of spice that could be anise. I’ll adjust this when and if it is in faqct the wrong beer. If this is the correct beer it’s the worst BA example ever and a total waste of $20.00.
