3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650ml bottle from the LCBO. Clear amber body with a medium sized foamy white head. Notes of banana, clove, vanilla, cinnamon, pumpkin and nutmeg are present, nice and complex, maybe some subtle ginger. Oily thin texture, some sweetness with a noticable hop character. Soft cabonation with pumpkin based finish with lingers for a little bit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear light copper, with a fair amount of carbonation. Moderate head settling down quickly, leaving medium lacing.
On the nose it is cloves, nutmeg, a bit of banana esters, and black pepper.
Medium mouth feel. Tastes are cinnamon, nutmeg, some wheat beer characteristics, bananas, general spice box, and surprisingly very little true pumpkin taste.
Overall it tastes more like a wheat beer meets a peppery saison, than it does a pumpkin ale, but it is certainly an enjoyable beverage.

Very light and tart on the nose, and a pale-amber to the eyes. Crisp on the back and top of the mouth. Has more tart notes than nutmeg or spices. A decent beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pours a clear amber colour with lots of white head that lasts for a while.
Aroma: Pumpkin, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon.
Flavour: Pumpkin, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, hint of malt.
Mouthfeel: Smooth with low carbonation.
Overall: A very nice pumpkin ale with lots of pumpkin and spice aromas and flavours. I didn’t detect much malt or hop presence and would have liked some to provide more balance. Still this is a nice beer worth trying.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2014 Courtesy of Jaghana
Couleur légère ambrée trouble, mousse qui disparait. Nez d’épices, canelle, rondelles citron orange, anis étoilé (ce qu’on mets dans le vin chaud en alsace). Gout bien épicé, des mêmes épices avec arriière gout de canelle, et petite amertume. Corps un peu leger. Mais ce legume donne des aromes peux courants.
