COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the tradition of the farmhouse ales of Belgiumís southern countryside, Hardywood Farmhouse Pumpkin is brewed with a blend of rye, wheat and barley, earthy flavoring hops and a classic saison yeast. Beyond this, Hardywood Farmhouse Pumpkin breaks totally free of classic style guidelines. Ripe, flame roasted Virginia sugar pumpkins and brown sugar provide a hearty backbone to this 8.5% ABV beer. Freshly ground Ceylon cinnamon, whole Grenada nutmeg, whole Madegascar clove and whole allspice are harmonized with pounds of freshly sliced organic ginger root. A beautiful hue of autumn russet, Hardywood Farmhouse Pumpkin displays a voluminous head, with a bouquet of aromatic fresh spice. Medium to full in body, this ale offers a balanced flavor of caramelized pumpkin and pie spices, with a lingering finish laced with a hint of fresh ginger. Sugar pumpkins came from the Farm to Family Market on Mechanicsville Turnpike. Peruvian organic ginger came from Ellwood Thompsons Local Market in Carytown. Pumpkin Pie Spice came from C.F. Sauer, right around the corner from Hardywood. Whole Ceylon cinnamon, whole Grenada nutmeg, whole Madagascar cloves and whole allspice came from Penzys Spices in Carytown. All are local Richmond businesses.

It has aromas of pumpkin, fruity esters, cherry, and slight earthly elements. There is a complex combination of the fruity esters and the pumpkin that creates a sweet finish. There are also hints of nutmeg and brown sugar.

750mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is very hot, with earthy notes, pumpkin spice, and alcohol. Flavour is along the same lines, with alcohol, pumpkin spices, and earth. Pretty hot and the notes donít really work together. Meh.

Ferris (12728) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle - Lots of spice and a bit of perfume. Clear gold with a thin white head. Tons of clove and really way too much spice. Not good.

jefcon (1642) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2015
The rye gives this beer a nice mellow flavor -- itís not too spicy and not too sweet, and it definitely doesnít taste as processed or artificial as many beers of its kind. Finishes a little slick and evaporates at the end, but otherwise has a nice malty character. Balanced for a pumpkin ale.

Smells like pumpkin spices and minerals. Taste is the same. Medium body, medium carbonation, and some foam.
