Some spices in this make it a typical sugary pumpkin pie beer. Pours orange with OK head and lacing. Light sweet finish. Elements come together well if you are into this kind of thing. So the pumpkin season begins, already. Tasted this at the Giant by my place and needless to say I didn’t opt for a growler.

Whoa - too over the top spice heavy! Aroma has a nice blend of fall spices. Th pour is appropriately rustic orange but w/out a head or much lacing. The taste starts out rather nice and smooth but finishes with way too much cinnamon possibly? Whatever the spice is, it’s too much and completely unbalances this beer. Ehh

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour..copper like red tint..1 finger head..nose of predominantly nutmeg..Cinnamon..slight pumpkin but barely..mouthfeel is slightly oily with a not very full flavored finish..picking up some of the ginger..which comes across as a spicy candied ginger which is odd and seems to takeover where more pumpkin would be better..

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
THOUGHTS: Overly sweet. The honey almost made it seem more like a spiced apple cider or apple pie beer than a pumpkin beer. An interesting beer, but it would be better with something to balance the sweetness. Not the most pumpkiny of pumpkin beers.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy, medium, slightly brownish, orange with a large, off-white head that kept a decent sheet. The aroma had caramel, apple, lots of honey, sweet pumpkin and pumpkin pie. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly acidic; while the finish was heavily sweet, slightly bitter and ever so slightly sour. There was honey, very sweet pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, slight sour pumpkin, and apple. The medium body was dry with lightly fizzy carbonation and a dry finish.
