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.

From the tap poured a copper color with a fair amount of head. Spicy light malty flavor with a quick finish.

davey101 (693) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 8, 2012
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Notches on the dates seem to be out of alignment. A - Pours a dark orange body with no real head retention to speak of. S - Surprisingly witbier like. Cinnamon and coriander mostly. A touch of bread. T - Coriander heavy with faint spices on the finish. Not very pumpkin or fall like. M - Nice carbonation and smooth mouth feel. O - An oddly coriander heavy beer with little resemblance to its namesake.

arminjewell (6293) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, slightly hazy orange-red with no head, aroma brought notes of some cinnamon, clove, ginger, hints of herbal, vegetal pumpkin notes, hints of earth, slight sour fruit notes with some grape, white fruits, pear notes. Taste is a mix of sweet orange, pear, grape, peach, vegetal pumpkin notes, some slight spice, toasted notes, cinnamon, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry. Interesting take, which it had a little more of the spice and pumpkin depth.

jcos (1562) - Maryland, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Location/Date:</bBottle on November 29th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a slightly less than clear orange.
Aroma: Aroma of pumpkin, faint spice, some yeast.
Taste: Medium pumpkin but not sweet, clove and other spices.
Palate:Light body.

Summary: Might be one of my last pumpkin beer ratings of the year...and a beer from Maryland I got from Ben(who lives in NJ). Solid pumpkin beer - what I really like is that it’s not overly sweet.

jgb9348 (4773) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Nice rich, hazy amber and copper coloured body with a thin, half a centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of rich squash, light nutmeg and allspice with canella, yeast and alcohol notes. Medium-bodied; Malty squash flavour at first with almost no immediate flavour that shows some light allspice and nutmeg shortly after and a little herbal notes coupled with some alcohol and a touch of yeast. Aftertaste is a bit more complex with a little caramel and a bunch more squash, but not as robust as I’d expect with the nose and the feeling of body. Overall, a nice lightish spiced squash-based beer, but a bit underwhelming compared to some of their other offerings - still always nice to try a seasonal around this time. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Red White & Bleu in Falls Church, Virginia on 23-November-2012 for US$2.99 sampled at home in Washington on 26-November-2012.

jmikolich (1468) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2012
12oz bottle courtesy of CaptainCougar/GT2, its got that belgian yeast flavor and a nice pumpkin spice, though the spice is too muddled compared to the dominance of the belgian yeast, the pumpkin flavor only peaks through on the tail end.

bierkitty (167) - Elysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Pours from the bottle clear roasty pumpkin orange. Small aroma of pumpkin pie spice with good body and little hops. Nice balance of spice and pumpkin. I could drink this again.

twj2000 (7) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 7, 2012 does not count
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.
