Really actually solid. Not a fan of the style but aroma of lemon peel ginger vanilla clove lots of stuff. Hazy orange pour no head or lace. Flavored of the same shit. Not overly sweet or spiced. Balanced and well done. Hides 8.9 well. Good beer.

Draft pour at brewery, amber pour with orange tint. Nice spice aroma little sweet. Even more spice in the taste, mostly cinnamon (tast like I’m drinking a red hot) very little pumpkin at the end. Some bit on the tongue to start but smooths out nicely, really enjoyed this beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Fiery amber, slight copper hue, moderate to large foamy white head, nice lacing.   Certainly looks the part.   Lots of allspice, cardamom, and clove on the nose.   Very spicy on the nose.   Also getting straight up Pumpkin Pie as well.   Strong spices on the tongue, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, clove, allspice, cardamom, and to top it off, it actually tastes like Pumpkin Pie.   Very assertive Pumpkin.   This one could actually be toned down a bit.   I say that because trying to finish a whole pint is difficult.   Very aromatic, very flavorful, loads of spices, but its almost too much.   Tone it down and then it would be more manageable.   Kudus for going to the bold side as I seem to be the #1 rater for #pumpkin beers, but this one could really be mellowed out a bit.   Good, but a little over the top at times.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Flavorful, but over the top.
