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.

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.

500 mL bottle purchased from Learyís an hour ago for $3.80. Checkout was excruciating, however. Contemplating not going back. To tulip, it pours a rusty sinopia with a creamy Navajo white ringed head barely a fingernail in length. Aromas of pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger), red kuri squash, lavender, celery seed, graham crackers, peppercorn, and cardboard. Tastes accentuate its maltiness by a 3rd; pumpkin meat and spices detected. Very thin body. Respectable.

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.

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.

Bottle: † Deep amber, hazy, large frothy sandy head, nice lacing. † Nose of nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, and perhaps a hint of clove. † Smooth on the tongue, all the aformentiond spices albeit no clove is coming through. † Simple yet clean. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Starts out slight sweet, but loses it sweetness quickly. † Finishes with subtles spices. † Nice example, would be a bit better had it been a bit sweeter on the backside.
