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!

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 it’s 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.

Bottle via sloth in trade. Decently carbonated but pours nearly flat. Moderate amber, crisp. Light nose of spice and pie dough transitions directly to first big half of body. Second half and finish are significantly weaker and end on the watery side. Spices emerge and linger as brew warms during the 20 minute consumption. A nice relaxing brew to read zombie books with.
