Tap. Empire State. Disappointing. Not much fruit. You kind of have to like really fizzy, pink lager to enjoy this one.

BEcause of the plethora of pumpkin beers I’ve had this fall, I’m going to stick my nose up at this one. Everything about this beer passed the pumpkin ale test, but it failed to amaze me. My wife digs the pumpkin beer so we both has this a few times on our visits to New York. Cloudy reddish amber colour. Meidum whitehead. Some initial clove, pumpkin and allspice on the nose . Taste was soft with the spices, not as much as i expected and was hoping for. Decent fruit and breadiness on the palate. But overall, just another passable pumpking brew.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Sweet and fruity aroma with notes of ginger. The flavor has ginger up front with a general berry sweetness. Pretty good.

Definite berries on the nose. Very sweet. The appearnce is a pale orange color, fizzy white head (like champagne). The flavor is strong berries, and a wheaty sort of spicyness. The finish is spicy, and a little sour (again like champagne). Not especially enjoyable, but not bad.

(Draught at HB Union Square) Golden and clear. Medium sized white head. Berries and particularly raspberry in aroma. Light bodied palate with sparkling carbonation. Malts, berries, raspberry, light sourness and lightly bitterness in taste. Berries and lighly malty aftertaste.

On tap, empire state building. Bought this one for my wife and snuck a few sips. Name is very accurate- tastes like champagne and aroma is of berries. Pours a very generic golden color, moderate head. Taste was almost too sweet, and palate was very shallow. Not bad, but definitely more of a ladies’ beer.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2008
A Sim rate (tap at Heartland Brewery, Union Square): Sweet, definite berry. It smells like a (dare I say it?) typical ladies’ beer. Cloudy, amber colour. Such a sweet flavour. So champagne. So berry. Delightful. Sue’s beer blogs would like this. It wouldn’t be too strong.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Part of a Seasonal Sampler at the Chophouse location. Light amber orange, off white head. Aroma is faint fruit. Flavor is very chemically, some fruit and super malty. Not very good.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Pours a fogged darker amber. Fruity nose with a good bit of yeast. Flavor is sweet and tangy with a strong and obvious fruit influence. Sickly sweet almost. The feel is thicker on the liquid. The bitter side kind of detracts from the overall of the experience. I love the lambics (this has some similarities), but to me this is just okay - though still decently good enough.

It is more of a champagne than a beer. Very fruity, very fine carbonation. If you want to go to Heartland for a burger, but your lady friend doesn’t want a beer, this is what you tell her to order.
