Golden-orange color with a white head and a faint nose and taste of pumpkin. Has a bitter sweet finish. Dries quickly off of the tongue.

This one just didn’t do anything for me. The pumpkin pie flavors were there, just seemed kind of "blah". mushy body.

Fall 2001. Very clear orange (pumpkiny!) body with a medium-sized head; aroma is deliciously Thanskgiving, pumpkin and cloves with just a hint of chocolate; flavor is on the light side but malty with pumpkin running throughout. Little hop presence; a bit thin and weak, but worth a try. Probably the brewer’s least impressive offering, but still miles better than a lot of fruit/veggy beers. 1/1/2002 rerating -- liked this a bit more 2nd time; pumpkin flavor needs a little warming to come through strongly; if it had a touch more body it would be up there with some of the brewery’s other (world-class) offerings. Oct 2002. Seems thinner and weaker this year; aroma still wonderful, and overall still above average.

A smooth, somewhat light brew that is satisfying and a nice change. Pumpkin flavor at the end is apparent, however I wish it would have been a little more powerful.

Eh. Nice aroma of pumpkins and spice. Couldn’t really taste it though, just seemed to be a little spicy around the edges of my tongue. Not much to it, really.

This pours out of the bottle a pale golden color with a thin white head and an obvious pumpkin pie spice nose. I rememeber liking this beer more last year. I thought it was a little thin and the flavors were strangely disjointed. It got a little better as it warmed. Still, a nice use of spice to make an intersting beer.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2002
Light amber with a light cream colored, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg with a faint pale malt undertone. Malt hits you first followed by light spice and then back to malt maltiness. Its been some time since I had had this one, and this one is better than I remember. Pumpkin really doen’t come out until it warms up. Finishes slightly spicy and a touch of hops bitterness. A very good pumpkin beer.

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2002
On tap: Appropriately orange colored, both a smell and taste of both pumpkin (you’re shocked, I know) and wheat. Surprisingly bitter aftertaste. Not bad for a novelty, but not something I’d drink regularly.

A unique style, and very fitting to the season. This has very distinctive taste of cinnamon and maybe nutmeg that seems to compliment the pumpkin very well. I’m not a big pumpkin fan, but I could definitely drink this with ease.

Didn’t think that I’d like this beer. Strong spicy nose and taste. Pleasant aftertaste.
