COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our harvest ale, brewed with over 100 pounds of locally grown, heirloom varietal Cinderella pumpkins. The pumpkins are roasted, then pureed and added to the mash for sugar and color contribution. We add pumpkin pie spices during the last part of boil in the kettle. Very light, pumpkin pie-like flavor can be found in this orange hued brew.

Draft. Poured a hazy orange with a super thin white head. Not a good example of a pumpkin beer. The pie spices totally overwhelmed the other flavors, especially since it was a thin beer. Needed to highlight the pumpkin richness more. Cloyingly sweet.

Draft sampler at the brewpub. Pours a dark copper with small offwhite head.Lots of seasonal spices with definite pumpkin presence. I am admittedly not a big fan of most pumpkin beers, and Punkinator did not stand out in any positive way for me. Taste is a bit muddled and too much spice.

Light spice and light fours. Pours orange with OK head and lacing. A little sweet and a little sour on finish. Tap at Crios.

GenDV138 (1768) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2014
4 oz cask pour at Mad Fox, freshly tapped right after I ordered it! Clear light golden brown with off-white head. Aromas of spices and pumpkin. Tastes of big pumpkins, spices, light herbs, cinnamon and nutmeg. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation. Might be the best batch they’ve brewed of this, pumpkin flavors were very nice.

Tap at the brewpub. Pale yellow gold pour with a very small white head. Nice aroma and taste of pumpkin and nutmeg - I’m enjoying this one.

nimbleprop (5183) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Poured right from the fermenter on tour at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with some frothy white head. Big, spicy nose, nutmeg, ginger, clove, root veg. Flavor has a big zip from the ginger, almost a wasabi like zing to it, after that fades you get the sweetness, carrot, banana bread, some yeast. Medium bodied, zippy finish.
