COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jacques Au Lantern, our Belgian-inspired pumpkin ale, is now on at the taproom. 6.1% abv, unfiltered and a whirlwind of spicy flavors and aromatics. It would take me a while to describe this one, it’s probably easier for all of us if you just stop by and try it.

Hazy amber pour with only a minor head. Aroma is spice but the pumpkin really comes through on the taste. More of a vegetable taste than pie.

33cl bottle, cheers Sean for hauling this from PA. My Halloween 2012 beer. BB 12/2012. Ambrée, col beige léger disparaissant vite. Arôme malté sur un léger biscuité, qcq épices typiques pour la saison, pointe de citrouille. Palais montre d’office ce profile de citrouille qui reste plus dans le côté plante sans le côté souvent faux trop sucré que l’on peut s’imaginer. Effervescence moyenne, note de noix de muscade, épice citrouille, girofle et coriandre? Pointe de houblon fleuri et un malté léger pour une pointe pâle/cara. En effet, une bière dont l’usage de la citrouille peut porte à interrogation. Dans ce cas ci, sympa à boire pour l’occasion ou la saison mais pas vraiment une bière de tous les jours.

Huhzubendah (2495) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 2, 2012
The beer is orange with a tiny head that quickly fades to nothing, giving a still appearance. The aroma offers bold autumnal spices, particularly cinnamon. Notes of pumpkin pie. The flavor is ok. Thin and watery feel. Overall, pretty easy drinking, light. 'Tis the season. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ReggieDunlap (3048) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Pours a hazy orange amber with a medium lt tan head...light sediment throughout. Aroma has muddled seasonal spices...a bit of a shellfish note. Flavor has a shellfish note and a metallic/earthy bitterness...very muddled spices. Mouthfeel is light/medium with a dry spicy/shellfishy finish. Nasty.

alobar (2755) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Pours an orange amber color with thin white head. Aroma of pumplin spice, pumpkin, and vanilla. Clove, cinnamon flavor with pumpkin underneath and well as hint of yeast. Nice beer!

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle from Shawan Liquors. Pours orange with a thin white head that rapidly disappears. NIce vanilla and cinnamon notes on the nose. The taste lingers a bit. I’m not sure I’m getting pumpkin but the combination of spice notes seems evocative of autumn. Solid beer all around.

boxofrane (2085) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle from Mari’s. Pours hazy copper with a finger of white head. The aroma is full of cinnamon and clove with a little pumpkin in the distance. Taste is pumpkin, clove, and some other gourd tastes.

DocLock (7824) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours fizzy orange with a finger of off-white head that goes away quickly and loudly. Nose is pumpkin spice, puree, and funky malt. Tastes funky, with yeasty pumpkin esters, a bit dry and floral, and with an more funky yeasty esters in the finish than pumpkin. This one is unique, and uses the pumpkin in a supporting role, and it works well.

HeadyDE (499) - Delaware, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Amber color, small head that eventually disappears..nicely carbonated..aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, and cinnamon..palate is ok, bit thin..decent pumpkin flavor..as it sits a bit takes on more of a slight syrupy taste..if your a fan of this style you will probably find this more enjoyable

crbolesta (10) - Maryland, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Aroma is filled with scents of allspice, clove, and nutmeg. Color is a beautiful sunny golden hue. Initial taste is heavy with notes of sweet baked cinnamon pumpkin. Mellows out into a medley of seasonal spices; very smooth and pleasant. Finishes clean with a bright sweetish bitterness. Lightly carbonated, but just enough to effectively deliver flavors.
