50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, BBE 5.5.2013
Aroma is rather spicy with herbs and some sweet caramel. Flavour is sweet with pumpkin, spices, herbs and cinnamon. A feeling of christmas porridge. Good!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. There is some pumpkin in the aroma but it is covered in layers of spices. Lots of clove, some less cinnamon and ginger. The clove is reinforced by phenols. Very spicy taste as expected, it even results in a subtle burning sensation on the sides of the tongue. Full body, slightly sweet, some diacetyl retronasal. Flavour decidedly spicy, with pumpkin and fruity notes. Itchy, coarse bitterness that is rather unpleasant in the throat. Well, it´s an interesting beer. Really spicy, somewhat rough and crude but distinct for sure.

Pumpkin ale, on tap. Nice, weizen-like aroma, lots of clove and some other spices, a bit too much. Cloudy. Full body, taste resembles heavy weizen with spices. Bitterness long and not so pleasent (cooked spices?). Luckily I dind’t feel much of pumpkin (I hate it)
