Brewed using locally grown sugar pumpkins from Bellewood Acres Farm, Lynden, WA. The pumpkings were roasted using a wood-fired pizza over provided by Rustic Crust Pizza, then added during the mash, boil, and fermenter. Freshly chopped ginger, along with nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom, and allspice were used for spicing.

Draft - Vintage 2013 - Orange and lots of Christmas spice. Clear copper with a beige head. Lots of spice no not much else. With a year of age, I expected it to mellow a bit, but still tons of cinnamon, nutmeg and the rest,

Very spicy brew with the cinnamon running full steam. Pumpkin is noticeable in flavor and aroma but overshadowed by the spice additions. Slight burn to the finish. Overall, interesting, but certainly not the best pumpkin beer available.

On tap at Kulshan, pours a deep dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out ginger, cinnamon and roasted pumpkin. Flavour is thankfully not too dominated by the spices, but they do sort of take over from the subtler base beer. Nice robustness to this and well-balanced - just not a fan of these pumpkin spiced beers. Good for what it is.

Dark amber in color, hazy with a thin head. Nice big rich pumpkin and spices flavors. This was a filled with lots of nutmeg and cinnamon. Very tasty.

Draught at the taproom
Dark amber color, with creamy head. The cinnamon aroma hits immediately. Smooth mouthfeel, with reasonable malt and caramel flavor, and strong cinnamon (cassia) spiciness; almost minty; correct bitterness.
Itís not bad, but well, itís just another cinnamon beer.

Medium-dark crystal amber malt color with a ring of head. Moderate and pleasant pumpkin spices entrance the nose. Mild pumpkin flavor. Quite balanced. Allspice and cinnamon both play a role. This one is reminiscent to the ubiquitous Buffalo Billís Pumpkin Ale, which is not a bad thing at all. A solid, sessionable pumpkin brew.
