4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Rusticoís OktoBEERfest 2011. Served in a plastic pint. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a fairly-clear orange color with a nice white head and some good lacing. The nose carries some pumpkin spice and gourd. Well integrated with nothing coming on too strong. Flavor was a bit of a fallback from there, though still fairly good. Light body with a semi-dry finish. Pretty tasty and a nice all around effort.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Pour is a nice orange color with one finger of white head. Aroma is all pumpkin spice for me and a small hint of caramel. Mouth is mostly of spices: nutmeg, cinnamon and clove. Not much pumpkin on my palette. Medium bodied. This wasnít all that bad but I could use a little more pumpkin flavor and dial down the spice a bit.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Bottle via StateLine Pumpkin tasting..... Smells like some slight spices, pumpkin and vegetables? Taste is more of vegetable, squash than pumpkin... Some spices and pumpkin but they dont stand out.. Medium body. Maybe this was a funky bottle. I will have to re-rate but overall little let down by this one... Re-rate... 11 12 13... Pumpkin and veggie notes on the nose. Taste is sweet pumpkin and sweet malts... crisp taste. medium body. Easy drinker... Original score was 2.8...bumped it up to 3.2

I thought this beer was delicious, had it tapped out of a pumpkin that had cooked pumpkin pieces and cinnamon inside to infuse the beer with even more flavor, perfectly spiced and nice pumpkin pie flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Caponeís. 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.

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

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 10/8/12
Aroma: The nose is herbs and spice (ginger, cinnamon, etc), with some yeasty notes
Appearance: A completely clear orange pour with a small white head (that disappears) and no lace
Flavor: The odd herbal portion that is so prevalent in the nose pretty much goes away in the flavor, as does the ginger, and the taste has a lot more pumpkin-type spices (cinnamon, allspice, etc). It is also fairly sweet for the style with a light spice hop bitterness. The flavor works much better then the nose.
Palate: The body is fairly light and a bit watery, it has a lightly fizzy carbonation, and a fairly short finish
I wasnít really all that impressed with this one. Oddly, the flavor was completely different then the nose, and probably my favorite part of the beer, but overall, I just didnít feel like this one worked that well. Really though, this issue is that this one was all over the map.
