341ml bottle. Pours thick and a little syrupy with a copper to deep red colour and a wispy thin head of foam that disperses quickly. Cinnamon and clove spice aromas that are quite good. My first pumpkin ale and I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Lively in the mouth with a spice and pepper flavour and a lingering dryness on the palate.

Vraiment intéressante. Belle couleur, arôme cependant peu prononcé comparé au goût très présent. Des notes fortes d’épices viennent relever le tout. Très agréable à boire, une belle découverte!

SlovakSniper (5090) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2010
Le liquide est orange foncé. La mousse est fugace. Les arômes et les saveurs sont très «tarte à la citrouille» avec des épices (cannelle et muscade) et de la pulpe fruitée. Un caramel se dégage des entrailles du liquide avec une bonne sensibilité. En bouche, le liquide a une structure moyennement faible avec une effervescence normale et une texture douce. La finale se fait sur de bonnes notes épicées.

Tessic (1036) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2010
This Pumpkin spice ale poured a deep orange colour with a nice tan foamy head. First swig was creamy with a full flavoured, creamy mouthfeel. Flavours include allspice, nutmeg, pumpkin and cinnamon. Finish is full of spice flavour.

bobman006 (339) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 2, 2010
Bottle. Clear dark copper with white head. Aromas of pumpkin spice and caramel. Flavors of pumpkin spice, caramel, lemon zest. Watery and metallic toward finish. Between dry and sweet. Medium-thin body with watery mouthfeel and high carbonation. Refreshing and drinkable but nowhere near comparable enough to justify its price.

Bière saisonnière à la citrouille de 5% d’alcool, blonde cuivrée, mousseuse, belle arôme de citrouille, soupçon de houblon, parfaite pour l’Halloween!

Bottle - called St-Ambroise Pumpkin - The Great Pumpkin Ale. Dark orange-amber pour with a short, frothy white head. Spicy pumpkin pie aroma with sweet malt, light caramel and candy. Taste is big spices (clove, nutmeg and cinnamon, mainly), pumpkin pie, sweet malts, light caramel, and lighter candied notes. Medium bodied with a sharp bubbly effervescence. Finishes with more spicy pumpkin pie notes, candy, sweet malt and soft caramel. Pretty much the same throughout but done well enough to be tasty.
