The 2012 harvest on our Mom & Popís farm was fruitful and this brew uses 100 fresh pumpkins and 40 organic squash. We prepared, cooked, and pureed all the gourds with the help of our friends at Carrie Anneís Modern Diner. A blend of autumn spices adds to the intense pumpkin flavors. Uses locally grown Triticale from MA. OG 13.5 / IBUs 10 / ABV 5.5%

bottle. pours a clear copper with a quickly fading dirty white head. notes of sweet cooked pumpkin pie, toasted pumpkin seeds, caramelized brown sugar, with a toasted nuts and marshmallow. okay, touch too sweet for my liking. hits the sweet pumpkin pie drink character up well enough. fine.

500ml bottle, thanks to radarsock. October 2012 version. Nice authentic pumpkin and squash aroma up front. Light nutmeg, cinnamon. Awesome, smooth texture, lighter carbonation. Nice dry texture. Hazy orange - amber color. Good thin off-white head, that has good retention. Nice savory and spice taste, little sweet. Good sections of lace. As far as pumpkin beer goes, this beats most of the ales that Iíve tried that are of similar gravity. Well-done.

Basically, I really liked this beer. Pour was a nice, deep golden color, decent head with enough retention. Aroma wasnít overwhelming - kind of subtle like the kitchen after the pie baking is done. Taste followed suit - not one dominant flavor, nice sweetness in the brown sugary way, seemed balanced pretty well to me. Flavors of roasted pumpkin at the end, and the sweetness lingered a tad. Lighter mouth feel than some of the other pumpkins weíve tried. Not so thick and heavy on the tongue as some others of this pumpkin ilk. A very enjoyable brew and worth the search IMO. Snagged the last three bottles at the local shop.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2012 October 2012 vintage, 500ml into a SA perfect pint. A - Pours a very clear dark brown/red color. One finger off white head settles into a very thin cap and edging. Quick but noticeable lacing. S - Typical pie spices of cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg, and ginger. A vegetal quality on the end that really does hint towards actual pumpkin and squash. T - Pie spices initially. Finish is pumpkin flesh and brown sugar. Very fresh and authentic tasting. Dry finish allows the beer to never seem too sweet or spicy. Mouth feel is crisp and well carbonated. O - A surprising twist on the pumpkin beer in the fact that its a lager. Very clean and easy drinking with a pleasant and authentic pumpkin/spice flavor. Probably the most approachable and balanced pumpkin beer Iíve tried.

500mL Bottle, purchased at Provisions - Northampton, MA. Aromatics centered on roasted vegetables and baked pumpkin flesh, accented with rendered cinnamon quality. Flavors pick up way too much cinnamon, burying a detectable signal of orange starchiness beneath a sheen of spice. This feels very watery and one note, with the sugar subtleties struggling to rise above the lack of sweetness and the overall thinness. Bummer.

Pours deep slightly hazed amber into a Sam glass. White head with little retention recedes to mottle surface. Cinnamon, pumpkin and nutmeg aromas. Soft with sweet caramel upfront turning to pumpkin and spice in the dry, medium length finish.

Bottle from Julios. Pours a pumpkinish orange with very little head. Very subtle spice and pumpkin flavors which makes this better than most of the other ones out there in this category than tend to be overly spicy or have artificial pumpkin flavoring.

Single bottle from Julioís. A clear medium orange color. Thin head, but good carbonation. Aromas of earthy roasted pumpkin and light spice. Flavor is on the dry side, spice is in check. Bitterness on the backside. An interesting take on a pumpkin beer.
