Staff recommendation at Churchkey. Not a bad pumpkin beer, the spice outweighs the squash, and it doesn’t taste like pumpkin pie.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
