Bottle at Toronado SD. Clear amber small creamy off-white, good retention. Lots of sweet rum and brown sugar, some nutmeg and lotsa vanilla and melted butter, not diacetyl. Flavor adds a fair amount of booze, not near the 13.9 abv the barrel guy (Preston) claims. Sourness peaked at a 3ish, alcohol masked pretty well. Low carbonation , full body. Better than Pumking. I said it. Best pumpkin beer Iíve had. 9-4-9-4-18--4.4

Iím a big fan of pumpkin beers. I have sampled a large selection of pumpkin beer from across the US. When I saw they had a sour pumpkin beer I was a little wary. It was a happy shock when I had this beer. Slightly boozy, but not nearly enough to make you think itís over 11%.

Tap @ Elysianís GPBF 2012... Poured dark, rusty-ruby-red with little to no head. Nose had spices, rum soaked oak. Nice mouthfeel, full bodied and only a little drying towards the finish. Nots of pumpkin and spices, with big barrel notes and lactic acid for souring in the end. Finally, Cascade has made a new sour beer I enjoy. I have been in a rut with them lately.
