3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle via StateLine.. Dark orange in color, small head. Nose of some vegetable notes, pumpkin, spices, malty. Flavor is pumpkin, sweet malts, spices, and brown sugar. Little heavy on the spices but still good. Maybe some spicey rye notes? Medium body, quaffable... for being such a high alcohol content brew, they did a good hiding it. Overall. Good brew

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Shawan Liquors. Pours golden with a quarter inch of white foam. Pretty big pumpkin on the nose. Unfortunately the experience of drinking tis beer peaks here for me. The taste is very heavy ginger. Finish lingers a bit. I think there’s some hometown scoring own this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours hazy light brown with a thin white head. Tastes very strongly of hops, herbs, and spices. Is that lavender? Dry, light body and medium carbonation. Smells fermented and spiced, a bit like cider. Tastes more like sour cider and less like lavender as it warms.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is the best pumpkin beer on the market. The aroma is huge and delightful. All of the spices that you’d see in a pumpkin pie. Orange-Amber color with haze from the wheat in the malt bill. The beer incredibly easy drinking for a 9% beer. Alcohol comes through as the beer warms but still blends pleasantly.
