So I'm not always a fan of the obligatory pumpkin beer, but this one is uniquely awesome! Amber red like autumn leaves...aroma is a waft of fermented hops and the faintest sweet cinnamon. Ridiculously smooth taste...a bit of sour hop and malt...it is here that the pumpkin slowly and gently enters...wait and the cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove reveal themselves pleasantly...I want to carve this beer into a jackolantern...but if I did, it would have a friendly face! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly clear ruby color. Thin white head that fades rather quickly. Sweet pumpkin pie aroma. Just the right amount of pumpkin flavor with out the spicy all spice after taste.

On tap at the brewery for the release. Pours a cloudy copper with medium beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong cinnamon, spices, nutmeg. Medium mouth, similar flavors to nose, light booze, spice finish, very nice.

Amber brew with decent head, but I was expecting something lighter in color and a bit on the pumpkin color. Lots of pumpkin spice aroma and the taste is yet more of the pumpkin spice with only a mild pumpkin flavor in the background. While maybe not as pumpkin as I would like to have seen it is a very good brew and I enjoyed it very much. Wish the distributors in my area would get the bottle shown in the picture here rather than making me take it in the CAN! Due to being a 4 pack CAN that had a bit of a high price on it, will be only getting the 4 pack once a year. Maybe next year the idiot distributors will get it in those bomber bottles.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2015
The first impression is a spicy one: plentiful nutmeg, some cloves, a hint of cinnamon, dark malts, burnt caramel, pumpkin bread, and earthy hop notes: even more spice (black pepper), a bit of pine needles, and a boozy edge. Dark and stiff. Quite a bubbly mouthfeel. The taste is malty bitter and spicy sweet. Warming alcohol throughout. Better for the tail end of the fall than for when it comes out.

Clear deep dark Amber with a thin off white cap. Big pumpkin spice nose without fakeness or ginger. Smooth earthy pumpkin and pumpkin spice tones on the flavor with a little warmth and a bit of semisweet pumpkin and nutmeg. A touch boozy buy nice.

Tap at the brewery. Pours brown, a bit of light visible. Nice tan head, average retention. Aroma is cocoa, toasted malts, nutmeg, faint sweetness. Taste is faint spices, nutmeg, a bit of hoppy bitterness. Definitely understated pumpkin flavors. I like it. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty good!

Canned, orange color with off white foam, aroma of pumpkin, not as bready with some pumpkin seed, pulp flavors, clean taste, good

jhamp9 (1523) - Corinth, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2015
Dark copper pour with a dense light beige head. Great lacing. Aroma is brown sugar, pie spice, and belgian yeast in the background. Taste is pie spice, toast, nuts, bubble gum, and candi sugar. Soft carbonation. Medium body. Interesting beer.

Can from a 4 pack from the Kroger off S Post Oak. Poured into a fat bottomed tulip. Appearance is an amber with a thin white head. Aroma is of faint malt and spices. Taste comes forth with medium bodied palate malt followed by slight hoppiness accompanied by an intermingling of the pumpkin spices and the aromatics from the yeast, dissapates into a softening of the spices and slight sweetness. Great pumpkin brew a nice trip away from the pumpkin stouts and imperials.

Nice strong pumpkin spice aroma. Pretty copper and and pumpkin pie color. Medium palate weight. Pumpkin pie spice up front (nutmeg) with mild sweetness. A little heavy aftertaste. Dessert-like.
