Truthfully, this feels more like a winter seasonal than a pumpkin-style. You can taste the pumpkin but itís delicately utilized. This to me is like a holiday interpretation of Raison DíEtre; a classic brown ale with a great balance of seasonal spices. Great stuff.

Vtg blackberry backlog, Pours hazy orange color with medium sized head. Notes of nutmeg, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, yam, and hops. The body is on the lighter side. A solid pumpkin beer.

This beer was very disappointing for Dogfish Head. The pumpkin was very faint. It almost appeared to be paired with a lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours orange and amber with a small, white head. The aroma is subtle for a pumpkin beer with hints of pumpkin and spice. The taste is subtle on pumpkin at first. As it warms, the pumpkin is more pronounced. You get the cinnamon and nutmeg too. It tastes more like a brown at times. It goes down pretty easy for the alcohol content.

Fresh bottle from the keg ín bottle store in San Diego. Clear ruby color. Good head. Aroma is tricky. Once the head vanishes it smells like a bud light or any other corn rice crap beer. When you stir it it smells like spices, pumpkin, cinnamon. Taste is completely different. Malty, pumpkin, spicy, cinnamon, some dark bitter fruits. Controversial beer in my opinion. Overall tasty.
