Bottle. Clear deep ruby amber color, bright white head, a beautiful beer. Aroma of gourd! more than spice, for a change. Taste is smooth and lightly spiced. Good stuff.

Lightly hazy amber; good balance (once again), caramelly malt notes mix well with the cinnamon and allspice. I’m not huge on spiced beers, but this is quite pleasant.

750 c&c from Oak Tree. Aroma is malty with a lot of pie spice things - nutmeg might stand out. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Flavor is very pie spice. Nutmeg lingers as the liquid leaves. There are other spice aspects, but I’m not good at diferentiation. More enjoyable than many pumpkin ales.

22oz bottle-pours a 3 finger high, foamy offwhite head. Color is slightly hazy gold/yellow with effervescence. Aroma is malt, pumpkin, cinnamon. Taste is very mild, some cinnamon/nutmeg and other spices. Faint pumpkin. A bit thin and mild carbonation, pleasant enough. That was my impression during the 1st mug. By the middle of the 2nd mug, the mouthfeel and the taste seemed just right.

Sample at GABF 10/04/2014, thanks to my BIL for assistance with note-taking. Hazy copper color with a medium off-white head that diminishes quickly. Short strings of lace. Aroma of roasted malt and pumpkin spice. Medium to full body with flavors of caramel, ginger and roast malt. The finish is sweet with a pumpkin pie spice aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Ortino’s. I did not know that Weyerbacher was bottling certain Bethlehem beers. Copper pour, with a great, sweet pumpkin aroma, along with minor hops and malt. The flavor is a tad watery, but contains an authentic pumpkin flavor, along with the applicable pumpkin spices. The finish is smooth but a bit lacking in complexity. This is a beer that I would gladly drink more of.

12oz bottle. Poured fiery reddish-orange with a short-lived beige head.. great color. The aroma picked up warm pumpkin meat, bready notes, and alcohol-fueled spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla).. balance was good. The flavor found bready notes, caramel, and a fairly heavy does of mead-y honey at the core.. not much pumpkin, but there were a lot of spices from the nose around.. tacky on the finish with a mess of spices and alcohol warmth.. didn’t hold up all that well after the initial smell. Heavier-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. too much honey and cheaper sugars evident.. needed more fresh pumpkin.
