HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
On draught at Bar Hop. Hazy amber gold with a lasting creamy foamy off-white head. Aroma of cream, pumpkin, spice and not much alcohol. Taste is much boozier and more grassy bitterness - banana takes over from pumpkin. Average body, a bit astringent, solid carbonation - start fruity/tam yeasty sweet and finishes a bit boozy/grassy. Solid damned beer.

pushkinwow (1997) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
On tap at Brothers Beer Bistro. Cleap yellow coppery with white head. Thought that the pumkin was light with some spice, bit of apple and some wheat, and a very light maltiness. Slightly sweet, high carbonation, mild+ body, odd carbonation affect on the teeth and palate afterwards that remind me of pop rocks with a slightly dry and spicy finish.

blankboy (6030) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2013
Draught at Bar Hop. Pours a cloudy gold with a small long-lasting frothy white head. Slightly mild aroma of spices, fruit, pumpkin, pale malt and grain. Flavour of pumpkin and spices along with pale malt, some fruit and hops -- interesting and nice. Average bodied. Really good.

jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2013
2013-06-18. Lightly hazy bright yellow body modest white head and nice lace. 3+ Aroma is mild, lightly floral and fruity. Muted pale malt. Flavour is relatively mild, sweet pale malt, wheat touches, moderate bitterness grows towards the back of the mouth. Moderate fruity character throughout is pumpkins but not so strong that you’d necessarily assume that’s what it was without knowing. Refreshingly quaffable. Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Enjoyable. On tap at Bryden’s, Toronto

sudomorph (578) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2013
On tap at Bar Hop, Toronto. Pours a light blonde with a white, thinning head. Nice lacing. Smells slightly of pumpkin. Taste is pumpkin with a touch of citrus. A touch watery. Very nice, refreshing Pre-October beer.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Lubiere (9883) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2013
A lightly hazed blonde ale with a thin creamy white head. In aroma, a wit like offering with light ginger and cinnamon with smooth alcohol. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with light pumpkin spices, banana, OK.

solidfunk (3893) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 22, 2013
I don’t usually like pumpkin but this is surprisingly good, works well with Saison style. I guess that’s the premature sense of it - not as much pumpkin and just tastes like a more general gourd. Pours dark amber with good head and lacing. Aroma of light gourd, hay. Some funk in taste and a little sour. Soft carbonation. Some sour and bitter in taste. Tap at Barhop.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Spab (2353) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2013
On tap at Volo. Pours a lightly cloudy gold with small white cap. Aroma is gentle pumpkin pie spice on top of grains and yeasty notes. Flavour also has delicate pumpkin pie character with cereal grains, light apple and clove. Light carbonation. Astringent finish. Rather nice.
