Sampled a few times at the brewery. Pours a hazy orange color with not much head. Tart aroma with notes of pumpkin, spice and some phenolic notes. Nutmeg comes through. The taste is lightly tart with notes of pumpkin, faint butter, stone fruits and a spicy finish. Medium bodied. Lingering spiciness but nicely balanced.

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 don’t really work together. Meh.

On tap at Capone’s. Poured an amber color with an averaged sized head. Pumpkins, spices, and caramel. Fine example of a pumpkin beer (but again, I prefer less spices and all pumpkin)..

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL thanks to Butters. Pours a tepid, clear orange with a diminishing white head. Nose is not pumpkin spice per se as much as huge herbal tea, honey, chamomile, white sage. Pretty intense and demanding. Mouthfeel is nice sage, spicy herbals, nice English cask beer character- warm, medium to lighter bodied,, big herbal spice character. No really a pumpkin beer...more just a good Fall spiced beer. Nice stuff!

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.

750 reserve from Wegman’s Collegeville. Pours hazy copper with off-white head. Nose is extremely spicy. like someone tossed some pumpkin pie with ginger and oregano. Tastes of pumpkin, spice, coriander, allspice, cardamom, and a complex finish. This one is constructed well, and very complex.
