[ bottle ][ 1oz ][ @DC tasting ][ ? ][ mini tumbler ][ 02.15.15 ]
transparent orange, large bubbled white ring, spotty lacing. Ultra sugary and boozy nose, pumpkin actually plays second fiddle. Spiced flavor, less booze, sugar and oxidation present alongside cardboard mid that grows, spice retuning. Toned down pumpkin, but booze too high and oxidation has softened badly.

Idiosynkrasie (4555) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2015
650ml bottle. Clear, amber colour with small, frothy, rapidly diminishing, off-white head. Spiced pumpkin aroma, hints of cinnamon, clove, rose hip, bergamot, additional BA notes oak and vanilla. Taste is sweet-and-sour, notes of pumpkin, bubblegum, mint, vanilla, leather, rose hip, bergamot, lemon. Indeed "complex, super tasty", very balanced and harmonious, unobtrusive; relatively light and very drinkable. Handles BA and spices with acrobatic and artistic, precisely artisan effortlessness.

Theydon_Bois (11491) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle split on the Chris Fudge memorial special, thanks to the Wingman, 02/03/15. Lightly hazed chestnut brown with a moderate off white covering. Nose is spice, biscuit, toffee, clove, nutmeg, dark fruit rinds, light booze, subtle bourbon check in, oaky. Taste comprises toffee, light booze, moderate pumpkin intake, nutmeg, spice rack, subtle bourbon. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with subtle BA strokes and lightly warming alcohol. Solid BA pumpkinator - one of the best pumpkin beers I’ve come across, BA balance is spot on.
