A blast of pumpkin pie aroma introduces you to this full-bodied and fairly malty beer. We brew it with fresh Washington pumpkin and add cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, cardamom, and vanilla after fermentation. It finishes with a very subtle warmth.

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.
