Oh farewell summer of sun and humid heat. Fall is here yet another year. No feast nor fest neither shall there be rest, until the fruits of fertility brew us thy ale. Oh brewer with the harvest at hand, brew us the ale in which we demand. The Witch’s Brew’mmm is a Belgian style ale brewed with pumpkin and spices. A whimsical yeast and a handful of hops.

12oz bottle 6/22/14 (Judicious Spirits-Mountain Home)-50° in Mug-Pours a cloudy amber with a small whitehead. Aroma of yeast, pumpkin, and malt. Taste of the same with the pumpkin being a bit more prominent but then also some sourness coming thru. This light bodied brew is not bad.

12oz bottle into Chimay goblet. Ehhhh bad beer all around. Thick murky muddy orange body full of sediment. Aroma is cheap pumpkin spices with some vanilla like Belgiam yeast. Flavor is turning sourish at the end surrounded by poor spices mad thin body. Just bad.

Well, I was wanting to like this one, but it didn’t do much for me. Pours clear orange / light copper with hardly any head. There is an off-white ring around the edges of the glass. The aroma has pumpkin spices, Belgian strong ale sweetness and a little vanilla. It has a medium body that is a bit crisp with more carbonation than expected for a beer with virtually no head. The flavor starts with peppery spice, dry crackers ans some pumpkin. The finish sweetens up with syrup and medicine. Okay for a pumpkin ale, but nothing I need to have again.

12oz bottle from Keir. Poured an ugly muddy tea brown/lighter orange body with a smaller piss bubble head that was just ugly. Aroma of dirty veggies, sour pumpkin, nutmeg and all spice, yeast, tree bark and dirt. Body was okay with a fuller mouthfeel and average to a touch stronger carbonation. Flavor of earth, bark, pumpkin rind, some spicey Belgian yeast and rotting candy corn. Meh didn’t care for this one.

Pour out of 500 mL bottle, dark orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of slight spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, hints of clove go into vegetal pumpkin, slight caramel, toffee, earthy tones and more spice. Taste is a mix of lots of spice, cinnamon at the forefront, touch of caramel, toffee, grass notes go into a vegetal pumpkin, finishing spicy, earthy.

This was courtesy of Strykzone. Pours a light orange color with a quick fading head that was gone before I knew what color it was. Nose is pumpkin. Medium body. Flavor is spice and there is that pumpkin. Earthy finish.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle:   Hazy amber, a bit dirty, light sudsy off-white head, little lacing.   Soft spicy nose, cinnamon, nutmeg, and apple pie.   Similar on the tongue, very soft spices, fall off fast.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, albeit feeling a little flat.   Soft spicy finish.   Not bad, average.
