COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pumpkin pie. No, really, it tastes just like pumpkin pie. This is our fall/winter seasonal beer that is on tap from September through February.

Tap at Liberty. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a small foamy head that fades to a ring and leaves some webbing. Aroma has strong ginger along with other pumpkin pie spices. Some actual pumpkin makes it through with a little caramel as well. Taste mostly pumpkin pie spices but I think the ginger is a little to heavy. Light caramel. A bit watered down.

tectactoe (1658) - Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Tap: very clear amber body with a quickly receding layer of white foam that leaves decent lacing behind. Aroma has notes of pumpkin spice, nutmeg, & gingerbread with a very mild steel-y caramel note & some sharp yeast. Some apple pie notes, too. Taste is full of decently bitter & leafy hops, cinnamon, gingerbread, warm & sweet apples, mild nutmeg & some faint graham cracker. Dry, toasty bread & bitter finish with very mild metallic notes. Nice pumpkin ale.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2013
$5.25 pint at Boat Works in St. Clair Shores, Michigan. Appearance: Slightly hazy pumpkin color with almost no head. Lacing is minimal. Looks like I expected it to. Smell: Best part, no doubt. It really smells like pumpkin pie with a perfect amount of spice (I.E., it doesnít burn your nose hairs). Nice sweetness, slight pumpkin, spicy... pretty much on point. Taste/feel: Eh... a pint was more than enough for me. The taste at first is actually very nice, and better than I was expecting. Punkin Pie tastes just like the aroma, but it just doesnít have that "Mm, I really want another sip." sort of thing going for it that I had with Screaminí Pumpkin. I also got sick of the watery feel near the end of the glass. Itís a respectable pumpkin beer, and actually one of the better ones Iíve had, but it probably wonít blow your mind.

Tmoney99 (10546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Draft. Poured clear orange copper color with an average white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid pie allspice aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy spice sweet flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good spice with no pumpkin beer.

Best pumpkin ale by far... and I drink a ton. No actual pumpkin, but well balanced with pumpkin pie spice as to not be so sweet. Wish they distributed it.

JPDurden24 (1563) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2012
At the brewery, orange and gold pour. Lots of pumpkin and cinnamon in the aroma and a similar taste. Maybe just a bit too much cinnamon, but still pretty good.

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2011
On tap at brewpub. Pours clear golden orange with white head. Aromas of pumpkin spice, clove, caramel malts. Flavors of cinnamon, clove, pumpkin spices. Nice carbonation and mouthfeel. Not bad for the style.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Growler. Pours a dark copper color with a small white head. Nose is spicy, nutmeg, pumpkin. Palate is medium, a nice bite and a lightly dirty finish. Flavors of pumpkins, nutmeg, light cream.

flatmatt (1102) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet with spices like cinnamon and a fruity cherry background. Flavor has lots of spices: nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and anise; with cherry or strawberry, dark fruits, and touches of alcohol. Very nicely done.

deyholla (6580) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear deep orange gold with an off white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of pumpkin and spices with a bit of an odd apple note. Flavor was similar with a creamy pumpkin note and lots o spices. The spices were a bit overwhelming. The beer did have a nice creaminess to it that made it feel like you were actually drinking pumpkin pie.
