COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In our pursuit to bring you the most flavourful and unique beers possible, we are proud to release this tasty autumn ale. Handcrafted with an assortment of specialty malts and hops, we added a generous amount of pumpkin directly into the brew. Combine this with hints of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and allspice, and you’ve got a beer that you won’t soon forget. Rich, satisfying and slightly spicy, our seasonal ale goes perfectly with your favourite dessert or traditional feast. But like fall, Pumpkin Ale comes but once a year!

650mL bottle from LCBO. Nice clear orange colour. Pumpkin and spice aroma. Taste is very spicy, with a little pumpkin. Feels a little bit "thin" - not the mouthful you’d expect from a pumpkin beer. Still, quite nice.

Blonde-ambrée, un généreux col mousseux la surmonte, tout en décorant le verre d’une dentelle tenace. Comme la description le suggère, oui, au nez c’est épicé, j’y perçois de la cannelle, de la muscade et du clou de girofle, parsemé d’arômes sucrés. C’est étrange en bouche. Ça goûte un genre de ragoût. Il y a, c’est certain, des saveurs de légumes, mais aussi d’épices, mais pas les mêmes que dans les odeurs. Quelque chose qui me rappelle les "chips barbecue" C’est la courge que je goûte plus que la citrouille. Même si c’est plutôt hors norme, c’est buvable. (400-151012)

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2013
Hazy deep golden pour with an average off-white head that leaves a little lace. Hmm...less pumpkin pie in the face than others of the style. Has a more gingerbread with pumpkin nose. Quite the same on the palate. Surprisingly drinkable for the style.

Gold pour, somewhat hazy, small heqd. Lighter pumpkin and and nutmeg aroma. Taste is not overwhelmingly, instead a nice mix of hops, Lighter pumpkin pie flavour, nutmeg, and clove. A very easy drinking pumpkin.

Calisky (1757) - ALSACE, FRANCE - SEP 25, 2014
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.

Cervesa amb un lleuger aroma dolç, en boca ressalta més el dolç però no es fa empalagós. Cerveza con un ligero aroma dulce, en boca resalta mas el dulce pero no se hace empalagoso.

C’est What Fall Fest. Aroma is pumpkin puree, with nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, and cloves, orange/amber, wearing a small off-white head. Taste is a milder version of the aromatics for pumpkin pie filling. Medium bodied, balanced, bitter, dry, very tasty, pleasant spicy aftertaste. Very good, like pumpkin pie in a glass. Glad to see these folks trying new stuff!
