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.

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

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Served on draft at Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear copper color with a thin creamy offwhite head. Decent head retention. Aroma of pumpkin spices and herbal hops. The taste is pumpkin, pumpkin spices and a hoppy finish. Thin-medium bodied. Seems a little hollow... missing something. A little bit too hoppy. Soft carbonation.

Dogbrick (9085) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2014
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.

DocLock (8309) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle from Capone’s. 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.

arminjewell (7817) - 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.
