Pours very clear orange with a whispy head that goes away quickly. It is very bubbly. The smell (and taste) is of pumpkin pie and cinamon. Overall I think it is a solid tasting beer, for me the turnoff (a little one at that) is that it is very thin on the palate. I just wish it had a little more mouthfeel. Overall it is a solid beer from one of my favorite breweries.

Nice but not so great in taste. The aroma was fine and very thin to drink. It had nice golden looks too.

On tap at Milwaukee Brew Fest 2013. Pour is hazy orange/amber with a thin white head. Pumpkin spice and caramel in the nose. Flavor is similar with no hop qualities and a sweet finish.

Orange with a thin head and lots of lacing. Aroma of cooked pumpkin. Tastes like a wheat ale with pumpkin, rather simple. Water palate.

Chuckaduck (608) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottled 8/6/13. Poured 12/22/13. Pours translucent gold-amber with a thin, dissipating white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice, earthy, spicy, fruity, crisp, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon. Taste is dry, bitter pumpkin flesh, nutmeg, grass, roast malt; but watery. Finish is bitter pumpkin rind. No lacing. Medium-low carbonation. Mouth feel is chewy. Better than I expected but not exceedingly so. Not terrible, but certainly nothing special.

Jow (1866) - New York, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Tap at the stags head as part of oddest flavored flight of beers I’ve ever designed of which this is most subdued. Pours orange brown with nose of traditional pumpkin spices and canned pumpkin pie mix. Tastes much ofnthe same of brown sugar, nutmeg, cloves, some malt, and pre made pumpkin pie. Nice palate and pretty tasty

From the bottle in September. Pours a cloudy apricot-amber with significant head and lace. Aroma of allspice, pumpkin, brown sugar, clove. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of brown sugar, pumpkin, cinnamon, amber malts. Overall a lovely balance and flavor...worth seeking out.

Wittales (564) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Appearance was clear pumpkin with diminishing rocky off white 1/2 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are spices of nutmeg, cinnamon, all spice, cloves with hints of sweet malt base. Lager yeasts let the spices shine. Taste are spices of before mention, light malt base with slight squash present with no alcohol. Palate was light with soft smooth CO2 with thin mouthfeel, then spicey clean average length finish. An easy drinking mild spicey brew, great for the holidays.

Bottle. Pours bright orange with white head. Smells very nutmeg and allspice. Has a big nutmeg taste, vegetative, floral, a simple brew. Easy and good.
