Imagine a pumpkin vine wound its way in a field of barley, and a brewer harvested it all to make a beer. Add Northwestern hops and a blend of spices, and youíve got UFO Pumpkin. The malt combination provides a smooth body and slightly sweet flavor, which balances perfectly with the earthy notes derived from the pure pumpkin. And like all of our UFO beers, UFO Pumpkin is unfiltered so all the wonderful flavors are right there in your glass. Cheers!

Pours a hazy burnt orange with very little head. Aroma is estery spices offering up the the typical pumpkin brew fare. Flavor is mostly reminiscent of gingerbread. The spices are what make this beer but the lack of any discernible malt backbone keep it from being anything truly remarkable.

Poured from bottle into pint glass: Pours orange-red with a thin tan head. Aroma of nutmeg, pumpkin, and sweetness from the malt. Taste more pumpkin forward than most mass-market pumpkin beers, without being disgustingly over-spiced. Hints of bubblegum and a slight hop note. Not bad, and I typically donít care for pumpkin beer.

Better than average pumpkin brew with a nice balance of pumpkin, spice, wheat and malt flavors.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Appearance: Liquid pumpkin bread under a white head tinged with just a hint of pumpkin. Swirls bready along the edges.
Nose: Soft pumpkin and gingerbread, pumpkin cookies and gingerbread cookies. Golden brown pie crust along the edges with cinnamon and nutmeg on top.
Palate: Super soft just the nose implied with pumpkin and ginger infused whole wheat breads in the middle. Fresh cinnamon and nutmeg on top. Chewy. Brightness along the sides brings to mind the sun shining through trees with leaves all the colors of Fall. As the beer warms up, the flavors start to grow muddy and the body starts to grow thin.
Final Thoughts: The UFO Pumpkin from Harpoon Brewery started off with a lot of promise, but about halfway through she lost her vivacity. As mentioned above the flavors grew muddy and developed an off-flavor while the body grew unnaturally thin. A weird development that was not enjoyable.

Bottle via StateLine.. Good nose of pumpkin seeds and flesh. Orange in color, not much head. Good pumpkin taste, lot of pumpkin flesh, seeds, malty, spices, brown sugar sweetness. Well balanced, easy to drink but full bodied. Overall: I will give this pumpkin brew two thumbs up!

Foggy honey brown pour with a white head that thins quickly. Smells of pumkin and spice with a similar taste acompanied by a bit of hoppyness. Leaves a nice spice anf pumkin taste behind with very little bitter. Solid pumkin brew.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Poured into a 12 ounce glass with a nice orange hazy color and a fizzy minimal off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg not much else overall. Spice is kinda minimal. Flavor is of nutmeg and cinnamon but not much else. It is kind of wattery overall, with very minimal difference in flavor on the backend. Mouthfeel is fizzy/watery carbonation is above average. Overall this is a meh beer.

superspak (3512) - Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 12/15/2013. Pours hazy orange amber color with a 1 finger foamy white head with horrible retention, that reduces to a ring of lace quickly. Minimal lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger, wheat, bread, banana, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with prominent spice/yeast ester notes and moderate malt balance; with good strength. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, gingerbread, nutmeg, clove, wheat, brown sugar, light banana, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, gingerbread, nutmeg, clove, brown sugar, wheat, light banana, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance, robustness, and complexity of malt, spice, and yeast ester flavors; with a good sweetness/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is good pumpkin ale. Good balance and robustness of pumpkin, malt, and spice flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.
