3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
THOUGHTS: A very nice melding of spicy Belgian yeast and pumpkin pie spices. But itís a better Belgian beer than it is a pumpkin beer.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy, light, orangey amber with nice carbonatoin and a small, off-white head that nearly fully diminished and left virtually no lacing. The aroma had light caramel; light hops; heavy spicy yeast; hints of pumpkin pie spices that increased as it warmed, and slight pumpkin. The initial flavor was lightly sweet, ever-so-slightly sour and slightly sour; while the finish was slightly sweet and sour, and moderately bitter with and average duration. There was pale malt; slight caramel; spicy Belgian, yeast, sour pumpkin, slight pumpkin pie spices, and metallic hops.
The light to medium body was very dry with rather fizzy carbonation and a dry and slightly metallic finish.

This is a really nice pumpkin beer. Not very spiced like many, and has a good body and flavor to it. I like the complexity the Belgian yeast brings.

Pours clear amber orange with a big frothy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma brings lightly sweet pumpkin spices, warming like pumpkin pie. Flavor brings lightly zesty pumpkin spices, purer carbonated body.

Not a very good pumpkin beer. The beer pours a light amber color with an orange hue. The nose features some potential for the rest of the beer, but unfortunately, thatís where the good qualities end. The aroma had some really nice pumpkin and nutmeg tones, but not enough in the flavors. The body was thin and contained a sour citrus flavor that was a huge turn-off. The sour and skunky flavor carried over into the finish, leaving a very undesirable aftertaste.

Pours a light brown with a small white lace head very much like a lager not to much pumpkin going on a little sweet but not to bad. Very drinkable but had much better

$1.80 Bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours slightly clody amber-brown with an inch of frothy off-white head. Smells of heavy pumpkin, light spice. Tastes of bitter pumpkin, some cinnamon, coriander, and light nutmeg.

Solid pumpkin ale! Nice copper color. A bit sweet, but not too much. Just right on the pumpkin pie spices. Really good on tap. On of the better pumpkin beers!
