3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the barrel cellar - cloudy gold - frothy head - nose has a nice mix of mild spice (nutmeg, all spice), earthy squash (pumpkin, butternut) and earthy yeast funk - all are mild but well-integrated - soft carbonation - full mouthfeel - flavor is much like the aroma - very nice integration of spices, earthy squash, and mild funkiness - I really enjoyed this - when Chad nails it, he really nails it - too bad beers like this are few and far between.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange pour with little head. Rubber and citrus aroma. Very dry. Tart like a tart candy with none of the sweetness. Little horseblanket and not true to the style while still excellent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Barrel Cellar. Pour is hazy golden with little-to-no head and decent lacing. Big medicinal aroma, sweet potatoes, ginger, cardamom, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, and basil in the aroma. Very reminiscent of Fall. Taste is full of spice, clove, nutmeg, biscuit, acorn squash, pumpkin, and pepper. Medium body with very soft carbonation. Really interesting twist on a pumpkin/autumn ale. Pretty tasty.
