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!

Calisky (1998) - 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.

KoNrRiI (861) - Århus, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2015
0.65 bottle. Delicately hazy, gold color and a large, thick, white head. Aroma of spices is foremost with pumpkin and pale malts coming in second. Taste is balanced and does not strike with an avalanche of spices but rather slowly introduces all the components: pumpkin, spices, pale malts, some yeasts, cinnamon, carnations. Medium body, creamy texture, and a very soft carbonation. Finish is short, delicately sweet and just as unimposing as the rest. Overall a pleasant beer, an unusual breakout from the sea of pumpkin ales which have a more pungent aroma than pumpkins themselves.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2007
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!

Gethinbeer (2400) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2008
From bottle. Delicate aroma of pumpkin and sweet spices. Syrup and strong hint of cinnamon. Great looking orange/copper colour with white head. Pumpkin flavour, strongly spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. Smooth texture. Rich finish. This beer grows on you. Now I’m towards the end I love it. The spices in this beer remind me of a Christmas ale.

cyrenaica (1095) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2008
650ml bottle
5.5% ABV
I tried this beer on September 30, 2008 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a translucent orangy-gold with a thin light brown head that lingered. The aroma was weakly pumpkin-like, with some grassy malts, and cinnamon. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was malty, but there was a hint of pumpkin, and more than a hint of cinnamon.
