On tap, Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, over carbonation. Rather light in the nose and bland in the mouth. Pretty average.

islay (1493) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2014
11.5 oz. bottle, labeled as “St-Ambroise Pumpkin.” Pours a dull copper/amber/bronze with moderate effervescence. Gold or brass hue in the liquid. Small to moderate amount of beige head. Looks good. Nice, vegetal aroma features scents of pumpkin, cinnamon, and vanilla. Spicy taste with a cinnamon finish. The pumpkin itself is more subtle in the flavor than it is in the aroma, but there is a pumpkin pie flavor element as well as some citrus and minerals. Malty flavor in general. Quite pleasant in taste. Soft, frothy, and fluffy in the not outstanding palate. Overall, this is a pleasant, drinkable, and likable beer that, in its subtleness, is one of the better pumpkin beers I have tried.

puboflyons (2538) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 5, 2014
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Reddish-orange pour, which is a little odd. The head is quick lasting and fades to nothing. Certainly there are pumpkin spice characters on the nose but there is a kind of grape note too. Yeast. Medium to full body. Sweeter taste than some pumpkin ales. Still has that pumpkin spice and a fruit-like finish.

Apparence: D?une couleur orangé translucide, elle est coiffée d?une mousse généreuse d?une bonne durée de couleur caramel. Faible effervescence. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des arômes de malt frais et d’épices. Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps légèrement ample. Au goût, c’est des saveurs de malt légèrement caramélisé. Par la suite vient une finale épicée. De durée moyenne, il y a quasiment aucune effervescence, idem pour l’amertume. Fiche technique Style: Bière à la citrouille Format: 341 ml Taux d?alcool : 5%

PorterPounder (6215) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - Beer Stop - 11.5 oz bottle - Beer Stop - labeled as St Ambroise Pumpkin. Dark copper pour, quickly fading off-white head. Aroma has some perfume accents, a touch of pumpkin spice and nutmeg. Solid flavor with the usual nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice accents, some yeasty notes, a hint of cinnamon in the back end. Mouthfeel has a decent crispness to it.

Speedy_Charly (136) - Plaisance, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2014
Bouteille de 341ml chez Marché des Brasseurs - Brassin annuel 2014. Robe d’ambre orangé trouble et coiffée d’une mince mousse d’un blanc/beige. Arôme d’épices-gingembre, muscade et citrouille qui rappele un peu la tarte si populaire en automne. En bouche, un peu mince de corp et goût d’épices trop peu affirmé malgré le faible houblonnage. Une bière de saison automnale correcte et buvable, sans plus.

gregorymconway (218) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2014
341ml bottle from The Only Cafe. Orange/copper body with very thin off white head. Heavy Ginger aroma, nutmeg, caramel malts and some pumpkin. Taste is very much the same. Thin, sweet, great carbonation. Very sessionable with a great spice character.

fidelis83 (2196) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Copper pour with a dark amber core and a thin, creamy off white head. Aroma is caramel, toast, lemony tartness, nuttiness and a hint of earthy sweetness, not necessarily something I would pick out as pumpkin. The flavor has a lot more pumpkin character, with a nice roastiness to it, some molasses, plummy dark fruit notes, and light vinous notes. Light to medium body chewy, slightly creamy entry, light to medium carbonation and dry, slightly acidic finish. Good stuff overall, nice Belgian-esque background.
