Draft. Very sweet beer. Not as flavorful as the best of the pumpkin beers, eg. Pumking or Sam Adams Fat Jack. Needs less sugar, more pumpkin and more spice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap in Voorhees. Deeper copper than the Pumpkin Ale, into brown with a short white head. Relative to the standard Pumpkin Ale, focuses much more on the sweet Belgian yeast, some mineral content. Cinnamon-clove-allspice-nutmeg, lighter body with yeast slime, some etoh poking out along with minimal fusels which blend nicely with the clove. Very gooey, sticky, goopey medium body, flattish and a nice iteration in a new direction.
Strangely enough, I taste less actual pumpkin in this than in the standard Pumpkin Ale, which may not have any at all!

Medium body and carbonation.
