Bottle. Nose is sweet and malty, earthy, vanilla and spice, strong but seemingly not overdone. Pours orange with a fizzy, ephemeral beige head. Taste is very sweet, thin body, light-medium bitterness, more of the latter from the now much heavier spices than from any hop contribution. There is some pumpkin character here. Crisp, light booze, too much nutmeg/allspice/etc, barely passes muster, but I finished.

Sample at Kurtkeller 017: Pumpkin-tastic 02 on 10/13/2014. Hazy orange color with a thin off-white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Spice, yeast and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of peppery yeast, caramel malt and pumpkin spices. The finish is sweet with a nutmeg and cinnamon aftertaste. Decent overall.

12 oz. bottle poured. Aroma is all pumpkin, with just a tinge of nutmeg to round it out. Feels smooth with just a bit of the lightest carbonation. Let this one warm up a bit before drinking it, might make it better for you.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at their tasting room yesterday, orangy dark amber color with light tan head. Aroma of pumpkin, spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), toast and Belgian yeast notes (some fruitiness, clove). Taste adds notes of caramel, allspice and citrus. Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, dry with faint fruity roast finish. Fruitier pumpkin ale, quite nice.

A brown Belgian ale without the pumpkin but everything else. Pours an orangey brown color, generous off white to tan colored head, splotchy lacing. Aroma of molasses, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice. Flavor followed, Belgian yeasties underneath, bread, assorted other spices. Mouthfeel moderate in body and carbonation. Nice stuff.

I appreciate the Belgian twist on the pumpkin beer, but it’s still overly spiced, thin, astringent, and overall just meh. Nutmeg and cinnamon with some Belgian yeastiness.
