COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This fall seasonal ale is brewed with real pumpkin and a hint of allspice. It pours slightly orange in color with a light sweetness and spicy finish. This beer is no trick and all treat.

fresh bottle courtesy of nicks6217, thanks man! drinks well, only moderate pumpkin flavor, seems like a belgian style ipa with pumpkin added. has a good amount of hops, and then has a slight amount of esters and rebounding malt sweetness in the finish. good stuff, not the best pumpkin brew, but stand alone i think its a good beer with a friendly addition of pumpkin.

Pours a light orange. Aroma is a mix of sweet and spice. Promising start that fades because the flavor is primarily salt with a quick hit of wheat. Allspice lingers at the end but only faintly.

Bottle, pours a hazy orange not much head to speak of. Decent aroma of some spices, vanilla, whip cream, pumpkin... Taste is a little watery... Thin. Little vanilla, pumpkin some spices... not bad. Texture could use some more body but overall decent pumpkin brew. Thanks joe!

A: The beer pours a hazy, light orange color with a finger of white head. S: There is a bit of pumpkin to this, but thatís just about it. A fair amount of all spice notes, and a definite grassy note. Itís lacking in any real sweetness or malt, however. T: A definite squash/vegetable character to it. So, the pumpkin character is good. Itís sort of lacking in terms of the spices and also the bread/malt notes. Strangely, itís also a bit too bitter for a pumpkin beer. M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: Really disappointing. Iíve heard this beer praised highly, but it didnít live up to its billing.

bottle... medium gold, hazy, nice light tan head... light nose with a bit of pumpkin and a little spice... the taste is really controlled, more like an ipa with a bit of pumpkin, very dry... pleasant enough

Aroma is pumpkin and the usual spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves. Appearance is orange with nice head. Taste is really sweet. Certainly sweeter than I wanted it to be. Pumpkin then sugary sweet spices. Palate is nice especially for a fall seasonal, a bit heavier than most pumpkins which I liked. Overall this is a bit heavy handed and which the palate is spot on the taste is heavy.

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Poured into a Bruery tulip. Pours a pale peach to apricot color with a single-finger white head and some good white lacing. The lacing is a bit spotty. There are large carbonation bubbles visible throughout. Nose is wheat-based with some slight clove and pumpkin spice. The taste is really like pumpkin plus some clove and allspice. Overall, pretty light. Feel and carbonation are both pretty light. Drinks fairly well, but is a bit plain. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-15-2010

Sampled on 11/27/2010. This pumpkin beer pours a slightly hazy orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head with decent lacing and nice retention. Aroma is fruity and sweet, hints of pumpkin and spices. The aroma seems to disappear about halfway through the taste. A medium bodied pumpkin ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Spices are nutmeg and allspice, perhaps a touch of clove. Decent carbonation. Some pumpkin and vegetable, but mostly it is all about the spices in this one. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. Thanks to Richard for this one.
