COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Twee Noord Hollandse speciaalbier brouwers hebben de handen in een geslagen om een bier te brouwen, dat tot nu toe nog niet door een andere Nederlandse brouwer wordt gebrouwen: Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Het bier wordt gebrouwen met pompoenvlees en veel specerijen, die normaal ook gecombineerd worden met pompoengerechten.

Borresteijn (4933) - Amsterdam, - NOV 19, 2012
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Clear deep amber/orange colour, off-white head. Aroma is not very sweet as expected, pumpkin, butterscotch, some mace, cinnamon, smoked malts. Flavour of smoked malts, light spicy pumpkin, light buttery, light alcohol bitter finish. Lacks body and depth, and if I was told this was a 6% beer I would have believed it.

Bottle @ home. Pours a hazy amber with a medium beige head and an aroma of cinnamon, candy sugar, sweet vegetables and toffee. The taste is sweet, it might be some sweet pumpkin-soup I taste, there’s brown sugar and sweet spices. This is really drinkable.

Bosskie (459) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2014
Red golden opaque beer, with a weak head. Lots of sweet banana, touch of caramel, apples, pear. Maybe cherries. Malty bitter sour-sweet, with an underlying alcoholic sweetness.

Betreft de Mashing Pumpkins 2014 3.0. Een goudkleurig bier met witte schuimkraag. Een verrassende geur van mout en grapefruit en specerijen. In de smaak komen de pompoenen boven, samen met kruidnagel en de grapefruit/citrus. Een bijzondere nasmaak die ik nog niet eerder heb geproefd. Een geslaagde bijzondere combinatie.

MonsterMagnet (331) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle, 3.0 version, bb 10-2015. Pours copper red with a white head.Nutmeg (and quite a lot of it), clove, cinnamon, cumin, gingerbread, pumpkin, smoke, pepper.Moderate sweet, light bitter, medium thin body. The alcohol is well hidden. It?s a very spicy affair. Interesting, but too one sided. Won?t buy this again.

oh the aromas! malty, spicy, gingerbread, then a sour, citrus kick, making room for less sweet taste like pumpkin, even carrots, dry finish, light carbon.
