3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange pour with a pretty big white head. Aroma is ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Nice body, smooth mouthfeel. Not much pumpkin flavor, but the atumn notes are there... spicy nutmegesque notes with a peppery finish. The pumpkin is there but it’s towards the back end and gets a bit muddled. Warms you right up though. Good fall beer fo sho.

Shared by Rei. A year & a half old. Incredibly light golden orange color. Great lightly spiced aroma. Zesty body, the lightest pumpkin beer I’ve ever seen. Great light fruity spices, really nice.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’m not all that impressed with this. It’s not bad, but poured at a good temperature with some foam at first and then it vanished, with no lace either. Color is a nice clear medium amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is the best part with a nice blend of spice, pumpkin, and caramel. Flavor’s a lot like nose, a little tang come thru, tho not much. There is enough bitter to balance. Body is good, carbonation a touch soft. Finish is like flavor, tapers nicely, and has a little alcohol warmth. A bit of a meh beer.

This is a nice pumpkin ale. If I have any criticism, its that its too sweet, but the spicing is spot on and the pumpkin has a nice fresh quality.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown-orange in the glass with nearly no head. Smell very interesting spicy. The beer starts very sweet-alcoholic, bitter, lots of spices like a German Underberg. And Gingerbread. The mainpart is great spicy, a nice mixture between Spekulatius, Printen and Underberg. But where’s the pumpkin? probably it’s the aroma till the end, when it gets smoother and very nicely balanced hopped. The aftertaste is long, great spicy, great beer!
